When Disney hosted its star-studded Rogue One: A Star Wars Story premiere last Saturday, guests were greeted by artwork that served as a painful reminder to left-leaning Hollywood that Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in last month's presidential election, according to The Hollywood Reporter (THR).
Conservative street artist Sabo plastered faux movie posters at bus stops and other locations near the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood, consisting of parodies of the poster for the latest Star Wars film.
Sabo's poster features a heroic-looking image of Trump with an ominous image of Hillary in the background. Huddled around him are his senior counselor Steve Bannon, pundit Ann Coulter, Breitbart News tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos, Fox News host Sean Hannity, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange and Vice Media co-founder Gavin McInnes, an early Trump supporter.
At the bottom of the poster, the title of the film has been altered to read, Rogue Won: A Culture War Story.
Sabo has previously targeted such activist celebrities as Leonardo DiCaprio, Lena Dunham, and Cher. As THR notes, "His typical method of operation is to plaster his creations all over a designated area before the sun rises, and the posters usually remain for several hours before authorities — or offended liberals — remove them."
Sabo also parodied the Fox comedy Why Him? about actor Bryan Cranston's daughter dating a loser. The original tagline reads, "Of all the guys his daughter could have chosen..." Sabo's poster features Trump and Hillary hugging Cranston with the modified tagline, "Of all the guys his country could have chosen ..." At the bottom of the poster it reads, "See you in Canada," a reference to celebrities like Cranston who swore they'd leave the country if Trump were elected president.
"It does my heart well to know Hollywood went all out producing all kinds of girl-power movies in anticipation of the first woman president only to have their parade totally rained on by a white-skinned, blue-eyed, all-America loving, pussy-grabbing blowhard of a man's man," Sabo told The Hollywood Reporter.
"I've never seen Hollywood's panties in such a bunch, and it was well worth the price of a vote," he said. "To think: Hillary had just about every facet of the media pulling for her. I'd never seen the mainstream media sell their souls for a candidate the way they did for Hillary, and she still lost."
