'Pay Bribes Here' Projected onto Trump's DC Hotel

17 May 2017

And he's created other projection artwork against the 45th president's administration, including a message reading, "Experts agree: Trump is a pig", projected onto the same hotel, and another protesting the appointment of Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt onto the EPA building.

Bell also told BuzzFeed that the images were displayed over the hotel's front entrance for about 10 minutes - projected from a van their team had outfitted with their gear and parked across the street - until a security guard came out and blocked the projector.

The artist first attracted attention back in 2015 for projecting animated poop emojis with the hashtag #JaredLies onto the outside of a Subway that was set to open in his Mount Pleasant neighborhood in DC.

"I have have a no conflict situation because I'm's a nice thing to have", he repeated to reporters at a news conference in January. "He said so much that they could figure it out". He had been working on the idea and designing the images for more than a month. "Unfortunately he keeps doing terrible things, so we keep having to go back there".

Critics of the president also joked over reports in United States media on the said Trump-Russia collusion.

The projections come at an inopportune time for the Trump Organization, which manages the hotel and recently began inviting guests to a new sidewalk cafe.

It allows religious organizations to be more politically active and endorse candidates without losing their tax-exempt status. Technically, it would require a Congressional vote to actually repeal the Johnson Amendment itself.

Meanwhile, the hotel has routinely become a place of protest, with scenes and signs and shouts of "shame" taking place just as often outside 1100 Pennsylvania Avenue as 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

One of his slides, which Bell said he finished on the drive to the hotel, explains the Constitution's Emoluments Clause that prohibits US officials from accepting foreign gifts.

The Trump Organization has pledged to donate profits from foreign leaders to the Treasury at the end of the year.

Bell also projected the emoluments clause, an anti-bribery provision that forbids any USA president from receiving gifts from foreign leaders and is derived from the Latin word "emolumentum", meaning "profit" or "gain".

Bell says he enjoys doing these guerrilla projects since they can transform a random government building into a wild conversation piece. Then he projected "100 days of pollution" to commemorate Trump's 100th day in office.
