Summary

Handset letterpress type (Gill 24pt) and linocut broadside printed on Magnani Incisioni 220gsm paper in several colours. The poster shows the right arm of the Statue of Liberty extending downwards. Her flaming torch is touching the White House, seen at the bottom of the poster, which is flying at half-mast a shredded Stars and Stripes flag. She is wearing a “Me Too” ring, indicating her alliance with the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment and assault. Down the right hand side of the poster are a series of quotations (separated by stars) from Donald Trump, the 45th and current President of the United States when the poster was made.

Notes

Caption title.

Text continues: I am a traditionalist but I have so many fabulous friends who happen to be gay but I am a traditionalist. It’s just fake. It's fake. It’s made up stuff. I look very much forward to showing my financials, because they are huge. The beauty of me is that I’m very rich. My fingers are long and beautiful, as, it has been well documented, are various other parts of my body. I will be phenomenal for women. I mean I want to help women. Grab them by the pussy. I think I am actually humble. I think I’m much more humble than you would understand. Nobody has better respect for intelligence than Donald Trump. My two greatest assets have been my mental stability and being, like, really smart. [Puerto Rico] is an island, surrounded by water, big water. Ocean water. My IQ is one of the highest — and you all know it. Please don’t feel so stupid or insecure, it's not your fault. I’m intelligent. Some people would say l’m very, very intelligent. We’re going to win bigly. If you look at Saddam Hussein, he killed terrorists. I’m not saying he angel but he killed terrorists. Covfefe.
