A comedy group replaced the jacket covers of Donald Trump Jr.’s new book “Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us” with a fake title reading: “Daddy, Please Love Me: How Everything I Do Is Try To Earn My Father’s Love.”
The duo of artists and comedians known as T.G.L., which stands for “The Good Liars,” took credit for the stunt days after the president’s eldest son released the book.
The comedy group said they placed a book jacket on copies at a New York Barnes and Noble location “to make it a little more honest.”
“You’re welcome, Junior!” a caption read.
We changed the cover of @DonaldJTrumpJr’s book to make it a little more honest and put them up in @BNBuzz. You’re welcome, Junior! #DonnyLovesDaddy

The book was also seen placed in the Young Adult fiction section of the bookstore.

As highlighted by CREW’s Robert Maguire: “In his new book, Don Jr writes about a visit to Arlington National Cemetery before his father’s inauguration and compares the sacrifice of the soldiers buried there to ‘all the sacrifices we’d have to make to help my father succeed.’ ”

“The Good Liars,” Jason Selvig and Davram Stiefler, are also the same pair that placed a satirical ad on a New York City subway train last month that took aim at President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani. The ad read, “Need A Lawyer? Call Crazy Rudy.”
The ad declared that Giuliani “has no shame” and “will work for free!”
“We did the stunt to reach Don Jr. It’s really sad to watch him try to earn his father’s love so publicly. It’s pretty obvious that President Trump doesn’t love him, and Junior’s attempts to get his father’s attention — dressing up as his father for Halloween and marrying a Fox News personality that looks conspicuously like Melania — have been really hard to watch,” the duo said in a statement to The Hill.
