Comedians plastered fake U.S. Army recruitment ads onto the display windows of the Armed Forces Career Center in Brooklyn, New York.
“I’m not enlisting, but you should,” the poster reads, crediting the quote to Trump Jr.
The poster shows a photo of Trump Jr., arms crossed and smiling.
“There’s weak and then there’s Trump weak,” the finer print at the bottom of the poster reads, next to a U.S. Army logo.
Comedy duo The Good Liars is responsible for the stunt.
“We put up some #honestsigns at the Army Recruitment Center. Hopefully we aren’t going to war, but if we did, we know one guy who won’t enlist,” the duo, comprised of Jason Selvig and Davram Stiefler, wrote on Instagram Thursday.
“In the wake of Trump’s latest reckless foreign policy actions that could very easily result in more and more troops being sent to the Middle East, we thought the public deserved a reminder of who the Trumps are,” Selvig and Stiefler told HuffPost on Friday.
This is not the first time the comedians have targeted the Trumps.
In November, they replaced covers of Trump Jr.’s book Triggered with Daddy, Please Love Me covers. They also put in the Trump Tower gift store an image of Russian President Vladimir Putin, claiming he was the real “45th President of The United States.” And in December, they added in the gift store impeachment-themed postcards.
“They’re a family that have avoided military service on a generational level,” Selvig and Stiefler told HuffPost. “Don Jr. loves to fire at helpless animals and pose for pictures with them, but he’d never go to war although he’d expect others to do it.”
Trump has been accused of using fictitious bone spurs to dodge the Vietnam War draft. And Trump Jr. has been criticized for big-game hunting. Trump Jr. and his brother Eric have been photographed posing with the carcasses of everything, from a leopard to an elephant’s tail.
The poster is available to download for free on The Good Liars website.
“A lot of people have been reaching out to ask for the file so they can print them―so look for them all over the country,” they told HuffPost.
