Tiny Donald Trump Statues Inviting Dogs To 'Pee On Me' Pop Up Across New York
| Last updated
There are a number of small statues of US President Donald Trump with a yellow sign around them reading: "Pee on me" popping up across Brooklyn, New York.
According to MailOnline, advertising professional Phil Gable placed the statues, which carry a plug for his branded content studio over the weekend.
Speaking to Gothamist, he explained: "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." Oh this guy's going in.
The statues are mounted on little patches of grass and have apparently been sprayed with dog potty-training aids to encourage any passing pooches to relieve themselves.
Gable called his idea 'a new, funny way to express the disgust that so many of us feel.'
He added: "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."
Two weeks ago, Trump's Hollywood star was put 'behind bars' for a brief period after a repeat vandal defaced it - yet again.
Street artist known as 'Plastic Jesus' placed wooden bars designed to resemble a jail cell over the star, according to the Los Angeles Times - and posted a photo with the caption: "Trump behind bars. Finally".
The UK-born artist told the New York Post: "I feel that Trump should be jailed for his corruption."

Plastic Jesus has also build a tiny wall around the star in the past, a reference to Trump's proposed border wall with Mexico.
He told CNN: "I try to do my pieces in a way which doesn't vandalise the Walk of Fame too much."
The video shows the result of the incident in July when a vandal, 24-year-old Austin Clay, took a pickaxe disguised in a guitar case to the Hollywood tourist spot.
At around 3.30am he took to it with the axe and one witness, Patricia Cox, told CBS Chicago: "I just seen a guy going to town on, I guess, the ground or whatever. I didn't know what was going on."
In October 2016, weeks before Trump won the presidential election, another man posing as a construction worker took a sledgehammer and pickaxe to the star.
