President Donald Trump’s star has been destroyed several times by critics of the president — and Thursday morning the residents of Hollywood were in for a surprise when they walked down the Walk of Fame.
A conservative street artist fired back at the anti-Trump attacks by multiplying Trump’s star and adding several dozen extras to blank squares along the walkway.
The artist, who wishes to remain anonymous, explained that he is not yet done with his mission to preserve Trump’s star. He has more coming.

“Rip up the president’s Walk of Fame star or try to have it removed — like you’re the mayor of West Hollywood or something — and 30 more will pop up,” the artist told The Hollywood Reporter.

The artist and his friends call themselves “The Faction.” They spent all together $1,000 on prints sheets of floor vinyl and adhesive backing.
Their mission was reportedly financed by a “young and anonymous entrepreneur.”
As the crew placed the vinyl stars on the walkway, they did not remove the adhesive until all the stars were placed because they did not want passerbys to know what was going on.
“I didn’t want to get hit over the head from behind. We thought Trump Derangement Syndrome was a joke, but I’m pretty sure it’s real,” the artist said. “If no one peels these off, they could last there for 10 years.”
Unfortunately, all of the stars were already peeled off. A Ripley’s Believe It or Not! employee explained, “we didn’t want to have what happened to the old star here. Not only would the star be destroyed, but it would damage our property.”
According to a cleaning service employee, “We started at 5 o’clock in the morning and we’ve found about 50 stars.” And a local street vendor added, “I was surprised, it looked pretty real.”
This conservative artist has no plans of backing down — and liberals could be seeing a lot more Trump stars popping up around their town.
