Trump 'Wall Of Lies' Resurrected In Manhattan After Vandalism

“A mosaic of about 20,000 of President Donald Trump’s lies was reborn in SoHo in Manhattan earlier this week after vandals had defaced the original exhibit. The public art “Wall of Lies,” which looks like a mass of multicolored Post-it Notes (they’re color-coded by subject), now covers a 100-foot-long section of cyclone fence, Time Out reported. All of the false or misleading statements by Trump since the start of his presidency in the exhibit were identified by Washington Post fact-checkers.

You can see it at the northwest corner of Lafayette and Grand Streets in Soho The opening reception will take place this Saturday, October 24th, from 12-5pm, with a special performance by Israeli-American rapper Kosha Dillz at 2pm. We hope to see our friends, supporters, and listeners there and then! A post shared by Radio Free Brooklyn (@radiofreebk) on Oct 22, 2020 at 2:32pm PDT The mosaic was initially displayed in Brooklyn outside independent Radio Free Brooklyn in Bushwick, but it was vandalized with pro-Trump slogans, including “Vote Trump or die” and “Stand back and stand by,” which was the president’s message to the Proud Boys hate group during his first debate with Democratic rival Joe Biden.  Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) visited the wall in Brooklyn before it was defaced and picked out several lies about him.

The work is a collaboration of Buehler and Tom Tenney, the executive director of Radio Free Brooklyn. “But when you step closer, you can read the individual lies, which are in chronological order, color-coded by categories like coronavirus, Russia, immigration, the environment and jobs,” Buehler added. “Then when you step back, you can recognize patterns in Trump’s lying.”  The defaced wall of lies remains in the original site.

The new wall displaying more than 20,000 false or misleading claims made by President Trump over the past four years has been unveiled in Manhattan.

The old wall, now defaced, will remain up on Grattan St. @radiofreebk @koshadillz #walloflies #brooklyn #brooklynnews #bklyn #proudboys #bushwick #bushwickbrooklyn #election2020 A post shared by Radio Free Brooklyn (@radiofreebk) on Oct 23, 2020 at 6:56pm PDT Creators held a fundraiser to remount the exhibit — at twice the size — in downtown Manhattan.  Staggering and beautiful.#WallOfLies#DumpTrump— Logan Loughmiller (@LogansRun) October 26, 2020 They’re gonna need another wallA massive mural featuring 20,000 of Trump’s lies has been installed in Soho— Sebastian Roché (@sebroche) October 30, 2020
