Donald Trump's campaign speeches and debate appearances have often seen the U.S. presidential hopeful swaggering like a wasted junior stockbroker feverishly rambling away in a nightclub washroom. So, it seems fitting that Winnipeg nightclub District Stop has installed a new mural in their men's room, featuring a urinal placed strategically on an image of his face. The venue commissioned local artist Nereo to create the piece.
"The club has quite a bit of street art decorating our walls and we decided we wanted to add something that was a little edgy and would incite discussion," club co-owner Casey Lourens told Global News.
Speaking to THUMP, Lourens confirmed the inspiration for the mural came from a photoshopped image that popped up last year, which superimposed Trump's face on a wall behind several Rolling Stones-esque lip toilets in the men's washroom at Paris' Belushi Bar.
If you don't care for his face, take in the great wisdom of his words, like "We have a great relationship with the blacks," which make up the rest of the installation.
