Donald Trump is a delicate flower who can’t take criticism of any kind, so the billboard displayed in Times Square will make him dirty his diaper again. DHVANI, an activewear company, made sure to send Trump a message by unveiling the billboard in New York City over his administration’s attacks on Planned Parenthood’s Title X funding for women’s healthcare. Women voters are fleeing from Trump like rats from a sinking ship and this message won’t help him garner that coveted voting bloc.
The billboard’s image called “Lady Liberty” features a man impersonating the “President” who is tied up by model Michal Mesa, a Marine Corps veteran, and middle school teacher, Curve Magazine reports.
“As a former US Marine, I was proud to serve,” Chloe Mason, DHVANI chief communications officer and the lead model in the campaign said, “and help protect the rights of our citizens.”
“Perhaps now more than ever, it’s crucial we take a powerful stand against those who are determined to strip Americans of our rights,” she continued. “I’m proud to represent Lady Liberty and hope it inspires more people to take a stand.”
Mason pointed to Trump’s attacks on women’s rights.
“We are proud to join Planned Parenthood in defending women from assaults on our reproductive rights,” Mason said. “Trump administration policies are threatening the health and bodily autonomy of women, especially women of color, low-income women, and LGBTQ women.”
Dhvani’s CEO clarified as to the 30-foot billboard’s message.
“The billboard is an expression of our First Amendment right. Its art is a symbol. We would never condone violence. This is about taking our country back,” Avi Brown said, adding that traffic and sales have increased since the billboard went up.
Other ads in the Dhvani campaign feature models who have put tape over Trump’s big mouth.
“He unilaterally has created a gag rule that you cannot refer patients with reproductive information about abortion, sex ed, and contraception,” Brown said. “He’s gagging doctors and nurses, and telling them what they can and cannot tell patients.”
Donald Trump Jr. took offense with the billboards.
“Since you had time to thoroughly cover a stupid and tasteless meme seen by 8 people with incredible outrage, I figured you should dedicate the same time and outrage to this billboard in Times Square you hypocrites,” he tweeted.

Junior was responding to news coverage of a violent video played during a conference at Trump’s Miami golf resort that depicted a caricature of Trump murdering members of the news media and other critics. Trump has promoted violence at his rallies, and on Twitter, too, so you can sit down now, Junior.
