Donald Trump and Kanye West's bromance has been a hot topic for a few weeks now.
But while the pair's IRL relationship culminated on news channels in an eminently bizarre meeting in the White House, its real pinnacle has been reached on the streets of Melbourne, Australia – thanks to a graffiti artist called Lush Sux.
Would you vote for this guy in 2020? https://t.co/w4OHiKf7TP— @lushsux (@@lushsux)1539566529.0
Lush Sux's artwork can be found on a wall in a car park on Sydney Road, Brunswick and the artist says it carries one message:
“Vote Drumpf 2024," they told the Press Association.
That's a reference to the Trump parody account on Twitter, Donald J Drumpf, and it is in keeping with Lush Sux's habit of bringing internet culture to life. The Donye image itself being born from a meme.
Twitter users were delighted with this piece:

It should come as no surprise that Kanye has decided not to run for president until 2024 in order to give Trump a second term. After all, they are apparently one person now!
Lush Sux has hundreds of thousands of followers across Twitter and Instagram.
Press Association asked what reactions Lush Sux like best from fans.
He said in response:
“I like to see them driven before me, and to hear the lamentations of their women."
The subject of Lush Sux's art includes all sorts of public figures:
Do you think @thenotoriousmma deserves a rematch against @TeamKhabib ? https://t.co/DAuRQ9Q2kU— @lushsux (@@lushsux)1539049285.0

Since the artist's work in controversial, some fans may be driven away when Lush Sux uses a subject his fans doesn't want to see made fun of. However, it remains unclear whether that has happened. His work is inescapably current.
