Several tiny Donald Trump statues inviting dogs to 'pee on me' appear across Brooklyn
The statues were reportedly placed by advertising professional Phil Gable across Park Slope. The tiny statues also carried a plug for his branded content studio
Multiple small statues of a younger-looking President Donald Trump appeared across Brooklyn over the weekend with a sign reading 'pee on me', according to reports. The statues were reportedly placed by advertising professional Phil Gable across Park Slope. The tiny statues also carried a plug for his branded content studio, reading 'Courtesy of Porcupine Armadillo.' Gable said the statues symbolized his disdain for the Republican president.
Reports stated the first statue was placed near the corner of Union Street and Seventh Avenue, just steps from the Park Slope Food Co-op. The statue, however, disappeared soon as it was not secured. Gable, shortly after that, placed multiple similar busts around the neighborhood and anchored them with cables. Gable, while talking to Gothamist, said: "It was largely just a personal expression of my own disdain for Donald Trump, both as a President and a human being."
"I went with the younger-looking Trump because I think that's probably how he sees himself, especially when he's paying Russian escorts for golden showers," the advertising professional added, referring to the allegations from the Democrat-financed Christopher Steele dossier, which alleged the president had paid prostitutes to perform "golden showers" in a Moscow hotel where former President Barack Obama had stayed.
Gable added that he had sprayed the statues with a dog potty-training aid to encourage dogs to pee on the statues, according to the Daily Mail. He said that he hoped dogs would learn to urinate on the statues he had laid out rather than on flowerbeds in the neighborhood.
The advertising professional called his stunt "a new, funny way to express the disgust that so many of us feel," adding that he was thrilled by the positive reaction he had received from the neighbors in the region.
"The reaction has been really great so far — I mean really great, probably some of the greatest reactions anyone has ever had to anything, ever," he said.
