Les Zazous' Troy Davis gave out signed and numbered art prints to those waiting in line to see Doanld Trump as well as to the many anti-Trump protesters. Troy also did performance art with the statue of acclaimed labor leader Walter Reuther. Some of the prints include "Greetings from Wheeling: Birthplace of McCarthyism"
Another work given away at the Donald Trump rally in Wheeling West Virginia is a faux political ad promoting CultJam's film Ivy League Exorcist: The Bobby Jindal Story
Another signed and numbered print given out at the Wheeling West Virginia Trump rally to Trumpists and protesters is the faux political ad titled "Les Zazous for County Commissar"
Also given out at the Wheeling, West Virginia Trump Rally at WesBanco is a print of a work that is part of Les Zazous' exhibit "Here's To Hollywood" titled "Xi Jinping Seal of Approval: Detourned Krusty the Clown SofA"
Finally, Troy did some performance art with the nearby statue of the legendary labor leader and Wheeling native Walter Reuther. The statue is about 20 yards away from WesBanco Arena and it was cordoned off during the rally; that was unfortunate because Trump and many of his followers could have benefited from seeing an inspirational hero like Reuther. Troy's performance art reflects this disappointment:

"Legendary Pablum" by Troy Davis is a mixed media sculpture and mashup between the old baby food Pablum and Legendary Entertainment, a subsidiary of Chinese conglomerate Dalian Wanda. The not-so-subtle message is that Legendary Entertainment churns out heavily censored and mindless diversionary entertainment (i.e., pabulum). The work includes another work from the "Here's To Hollywood" exhibit: "The Xi Jinping Seal of Approval: Detourned Krusty The Clown SofA" as well as the logo for the Chinese censorship agency SARFT.
The Artwork "Hashtag: TankManRocks" by Troy Davis is part of the "Here's To Hollywood" exhibit at Les Zazous Postmodern Art Gallery.
