Michael D'Antuono's Art And Response

Country Before Party Campaign

One of Michael D'Antuono's Country First Trucks circling the Capitol BuildingFor one week in May, I had three mobile billboards circle the Capitol Building with my art and message to the GOP to put country before party. See the video here. The response was so positive I have created a GoFundMe campaign to take the trucks to other cities around the country.

As you can see from the video, people are upset that the Republicans in DC are ignoring Trump’s impeachable offenses and even obstructing investigation to shield their party leader from justice rather than protect our elections and our democracy from Russia. That same concern is what inspired me to take these trucks to DC. I hope to raise enough funds to take these trucks to swing states before the midterm elections.

As the featured guest, my friend, Malcom Nance invited me to the August 3rd taping of Real Time with Bill Maher. I hung out with Malcom and panelists, John McCain’s campaign manager Steve Schmidt, New York Times columnist Charles Blow and professor/author Nancy MacLean. As you might expect, the conversation was wonderfully engaging, especially that with Nancy and Bill’s fascinating producer, Scott Carter.

Politicon Panel: Art Effecting Change

Politicon panel Art Effecting Change

I was fortunate to have the opportunity to speak at Politicon this year on a panel about the power of art to effect change. Everything was going fine until conservative artist, Sabo went on a racist diatribe cursing at the audience and walking off stage. While Politicon held panels boasting bigger names such as Jake Tapper, Joy Reid, Chelsea Chandler, Rob Reiner, Roger Stone, Ann Coulter and others, ours might have been one of the most exciting. You can see the blow up here.

I also tricked Trump’s partner in crime and political trickster, Roger Stone, into taking a picture with me with my “Impeach Trump” art on my bag after thoroughly checking to see if I were wearing it on my shirt.
