“Trump: Lord of the Lies” revisits our 2016 poster “Trump 24K Gold-Plated” and features the same four whirling letter Ts. This time, however, four flies—agents of pestilence and rot—issue from the central motif. Via platforms like Twitter and Fox News, Trump’s lies are a contagion that spread to the four corners of the earth.

The text “Lord of the Lies” is a reference to William Golding’s 1954 novel and the ancient god Beelzebub, also known as “the lord of the flies” or “the dung-god.” If there is a contemporary embodiment of the dung-god Beelzebub, it is none other than President Donald Trump.

We successfully Kickstarted this poster in the summer of 2020 with the help of 75 funders.
