Lithuanian eatery puts up poster of Trump-Putin kiss
COPENHAGEN, Denmark — A street artist in Lithuania has adorned the exteriors of a barbecue restaurant with a poster showing Donald Trump locking lips with Vladimir Putin.
Restaurant owner Dominykas Ceckauskas said Saturday the presumptive Republican presidential nominee and the Russian president both have huge egos “and they seem to get along pretty well.”
He said the image is “an ironic view of what can be expected.”
Local artist Mindaugas Bonanu created the wheat paste poster for the eatery in the capital Vilnius on Friday.
Ceckauskas said it was a nod to a 1979 photograph of Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev kissing East German ally Erich Honecker on the mouth — once a customary greeting between socialist leaders.
There have been no calls to remove the more than 2-meter (6.6-feet) high poster. TVJ
