A menacing Donald Trump is gazing down on Phoenix….
The president is flanked by mushroom clouds and swastikas configured like dollar signs.
“I think a lot of people are feeling this way and I’m just trying to express what I think is on a lot of people’s minds these days,” the billboard’s artist, Karen Fiorito, said Friday in an interview from her California home.
“Something that really concerned us was this idea of a dictatorship where things were going in a certain direction.”
But look closely at the mushroom clouds and you’ll see clown faces. There’s a Russian flag on Trump’s lapel.
“I tried to put a little bit of humor in things that are really dark and hard to take,” Fiorito said.
The Trump billboard went up Friday at 11th Avenue and Grand, to coincide with the start of the annual three-day Art Detour event in downtown Phoenix. Moore said it would remain up as long as Trump is president.
