Street artist targets Hollywood anti-Trumpers with '24' spoof posters

A conservative street artist famous for lampooning liberal Hollywood is celebrating the inauguration of President Donald Trump at an anti-Trump rally Friday in Los Angeles using ◼ faux posters of Fox’s revival of the hit TV show 24.

The artist, who goes by the pseudonym Sabo, is also attacking a bunch of musicians scheduled to perform at an anti-Trump rally, also in Los Angeles....

In Sabo’s version, though, an image of the TV show’s star, Corey Hawkins, has been replaced by one of Trump. The text, “New Day, New Hero” remains, but “24” has been replaced by “45,” a reference to Trump becoming the 45th president of the United States. The word “legacy” is replaced by “MAGA,” a reference to Trump’s campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again.”
