Though the image is dark and disconcerting, there is humor to be found. For example, if you look closely at the mushroom clouds, you can see clown faces. And if you look at Trump's lapel, you'll notice he's wearing a Russian flag pin.
This billboard is the work of California artist Karen Fiorito. When speaking of the billboard, she said,
"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. Something that really concerned us was this idea of a dictatorship where things were going in a certain direction."
Fiorito has experienced backlash for her Trump billboard, claiming she has received death threats. She said she has received, "A lot of hate. Things have gotten a lot more escalated now. I just hope that everyone involved in helping bring this message out is safe and that we all get through this unharmed."
"I’ve gotten hundreds of phone calls and emails. I’ve gotten hundreds of threats on every page I have on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube. They tried to hack my accounts and my social security number."
When discussing the reaction to these past billboards, she said,
"Each of these caused me to receive many death threats and hate. [People] also hacked my email and posted my personal information online. These are their tactics. They will do anything to scare and intimidate you because they know you are right."
Fiorito says those calling her hateful missed the point of her work. The other side of the billboard features hands of different color signing the word "Unity." She is upset so many, including the media, have overlooked this aspect of the billboard.
When asked what other artists could do to resist Trump but may be afraid of similar backlash, Fiorito advised,
"Join a group or local organization against Trump and his policies. Lots of artists are forming groups, and there is power in numbers. If you are still afraid, do what I wish I would have done: remain anonymous (like Banksy)."
