  • Dozens of vinyl stars for Donald Trump were placed on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday Aug. 10 2018

"I didn't want to get hit over the head from behind".

The conclave of artists call themselves "The Faction", and they pasted several dozen reproductions of the president's destroyed star on the famed celebrity exhibit in California.

Two weeks after a member of the "resistance" demolished Donald Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame with a pickax, a counter-resistance squad struck back, placing 30 vinyl replicas of Trump's star on blank squares of the sidewalk.

The West Hollywood City Council on Monday unanimously approved a resolution seeking the removal of Trump's star.

On Wednesday, Mayor Eric Garcetti told reporters the star should remain where it is despite the West Hollywood City Council's unanimous vote to remove it.

So far, more than 50 of the fake stars, which are said to have been funded by "a young and anonymous entrepreneur", have been peeled off and removed. We will shower you Useful Idiots in glorious memes to manifest your Trump Derangement Syndrome demons.

"The Hollywood Walk of Fame is a registered historic landmark".

Police arrested a man, Austin Clay, who claimed responsibility for the vandalism that destroyed Trump's star last month.

A kind of symbolic war played out in Hollywood during the summer of 2018, when some critics and opponents of President Donald Trump turned their attentions to his star on Hollywood Boulevard's Walk of Fame.

While the artist asserted that the collection of stars "could last there for 10 years" if no one made a decision to remove them, an employee of Ripley's Believe It or Not! told the outlet that they were taken off due to a concern that vandalism would happen again. One Ripley's Believe It or Not!

People began removing the stars on Thursday. "... Every moment we're out there fighting these fights, or just on our Twitter feed, are moments we could be registering voters and actually flipping this Congress".
