Obama HOPE Artist Says Hillary Not Inspiring Enough to Illustrate
Obama “Hope” artist says Hillary Clinton was not “inspiring enough” to illustrate.
The Washington Times reported:
The artist behind the iconic 2008 “Hope” poster of President Obama says he hasn’t been inspired enough by Hillary Clinton to illustrate the Democratic presidential nominee.
Some experts have credited Shepard Fairey’s “Hope” poster with giving Mr. Obama the push he needed to win the 2008 presidential election. This campaign season, the artist chose to target Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for a much different reason.
“Trump is dangerous,” Mr. Fairey, 46, told CNN in an interview published Monday.
“He’s a demagogue who’s a bigot and is sexist. He really has no respect for a lot of different people, no experience in politics, and is pursuing the presidency out of his own ego rather than a desire to create the greatest good for the greatest number of people,” he said.
