The West Hollywood City Council unanimously approved a resolution requesting that LA Mayor Eric Garcetti, the Los Angeles City Council, and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce permanently remove President Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The vote made national headlines, with Trump’s opponents cheering the move. However, a “nasty surprise” just popped up on the Walk of Fame overnight, leaving those same Trump-hating liberals livid.
President Donald Trump originally received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his work as a producer of the Miss Universe pageants. But since then, the embattled landmark has faced the wrath of militant leftists who say Trump is not their president.
Last month, 24-year-old Austin Clay walked up to Trump’s star with a guitar case, pulled out a pickaxe, and hammered away. Daily Mail reported at the time:
Austin Clay, 24, turned himself in on Wednesday, hours after he took a pickaxe to Donald Trump’s star. Video showed Clay hammering away at the star with the tool around 3am Pacific time. He was carrying the pickaxe in a guitar case, according to reports.
Photos showed Trump’s star completely destroyed and unrecognizable with debris scattered across the sidewalk. Clay left his pickaxe at the scene before fleeing, but later called the Los Angeles Police Department and confessed to being the culprit who smashed the name plate plaque to smithereens.
Amid the controversy surrounding Trump’s star, the West Hollywood City Council unanimously approved a resolution requesting that LA Mayor Eric Garcetti, the Los Angeles City Council, and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce permanently remove President Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
“Having a ‘star’ on the Walk of Fame is a privilege that is highly sought after by those in the entertainment industry, allowing Mr. Trump to continue to have a star in light of his behavior toward women, particularly in the #timesup and #metoo movements, should not be acceptable in the Hollywood and entertainment industry communities,” reads the resolution, which fails to mention all of the other scandal-plagued celebrities whose stars the city council apparently has no problem displaying.
Despite the best efforts of those clearly suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome, however, it doesn’t look like Trump’s star will be going anywhere anytime soon because it just so happens to be a “registered historic landmark.” Those on the left were furious to hear that Trump would ultimately be keeping his star, and what happened on Thursday only added insult to injury.
According to Breitbart, fifty Donald Trump stars appeared overnight on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Thursday morning, just days after the City of West Hollywood voted for the removal of Trump’s star and Trump’s actual star was vandalized. The 50 stars, which are vinyl but look surprisingly authentic, are the product of a conservative street artist who wished to remain anonymous out of fear for his personal safety.
“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 told The Hollywood Reporter. And he’s right. As of today, the political left has committed over 540 documented acts of violence, harassment, vandalism, and menacing against the president’s supporters.
The artist and his team laminated the vinyl stars over already existing squares on the Walk of Fame. The project cost just $1,000 — “crumbs” by Nancy Pelosi’s standards — which was provided by donation. “If no one peels these off, they could last there for 10 years,” said the artist.
The Faction posted a video of the stars being installed, along with a clear message for the unhinged liberals who continue to vandalize Trump’s actual star: “Keep taking down the @realDonaldTrump star, and we will further spread Trump Derangement Syndrome by installing a never-ending stream of stars.”

It should be noted that this conservative street artist made his point without destroying anything — the fifty stars he placed on the Hollywood Walk of Fame are easily removable. By contrast, the misguided leftists who have taken pickaxes and sledgehammers to Trump’s star caused thousands of dollars worth of damage.
Their violent tantrums were a much lazier form of protest than what this unnamed conservative street artist did. But, after all, we’ve never known liberals to put in the extra work.
