Art Activists Change Trump Jr.’s Book Title to ‘Daddy, Please Love Me’

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news
“We changed the cover of Don Jr’s book to make it a little more honest and put them up in Barnes and Noble. You’re welcome, Junior!” –  The Good Liars

Sometimes art activism is the only reason I still have faith in democracy.  Two comedians in NYC trolled Donald Trump Jr. in an ingenious way this week, by replacing the jackets on his new book ‘Triggered’ in an NYC Barnes and Nobles.   The new title: ‘Daddy, Please Love Me: How Everything I Do Is To Earn My Father’s Love“, replaced Trump Junior’s working title of ‘Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us“.

Artists’ original Instagram post:

Perhaps the cherry on top is that the books were placed in the ‘Young Adult fiction’ section of the bookstore.  Priceless.

The duo of artists activists and comedians are Jason Selvig and Davram Stiefler, known as ‘T.G.L.’, which stands for “The Good Liars,” they posted about Trump Jr.’s book prank on social media saying that they felt the new covers were, “a little more honest.”  These wonderful pranksters are also the same pair that last month placed a satirical ad on an NYC subway train that satirized President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani. The ad read, “Need A Lawyer? Call Crazy Rudy.”

Actual NYC Subway ad run by The Good Liars.

T.G.I told a reporter at the Hill, “We did the stunt to reach Don Jr. It’s really sad to watch him try to earn his father’s love so publicly. It’s pretty obvious that President Trump doesn’t love him, and Junior’s attempts to get his father’s attention — dressing up as his father for halloween and marrying a Fox News personality that looks conspicuously like Melania — have been really hard to watch.”

Trump Jr.’s new book made headlines this week when Junior was booed off stage during a book tour appearance at UCLA. But we hope it’s remembered for its more realistic title.  ‘Daddy, Please Love Me’.
