A fake jacket placed on the cover of Donald Trump Jr.Donald (Don) John TrumpTrump allies to barnstorm Iowa for caucuses Comedians post fake Army recruitment posters featuring Trump Jr. Trump Jr., Ivanka garner support in hypothetical 2024 poll MORE’s new book in a New York City bookstore swapped the title to “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 conservative book called “Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us.”

The 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.

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

The Trump Organization executive said the book is meant to take on “the bullshit we’ve all seen coming from the mainstream media ... and the great hypocrisy and stupidity coming from the left.”

“The Good Liars,” Jason Selvig and Davram Stiefler, are also the same pair that last month placed a satirical advertisement on a New York City subway train that took aim at President TrumpDonald John TrumpWarren: Dershowitz presentation 'nonsensical,' 'could not follow it' Bolton told Barr he was concerned Trump did favors for autocrats: report Dershowitz: Bolton allegations would not constitute impeachable offense MORE’s personal attorney Rudy GiulianiRudy GiulianiTrump lawyers offer defense of Giuliani on the Senate floor Giuliani: Bolton sacrificing his integrity 'to make a few bucks on a book' The Hill's Morning Report - Report of Bolton tell-all manuscript roils Trump defense MORE. The ad read, “Need A Lawyer? Call Crazy Rudy.”

A photo of the blue-banner ad showed Giuliani alongside a list of legal services, which include "back-channel deals" and "cable news appearances." 

The ad also declared that Giuliani "has no shame" and "will work for free!"

The comedians in 2016 also pretended to be “undecided” voters during the presidential election and spoke with presidential candidates on the campaign trail in their Amazon Prime movie “Undecided.”


In a statement to The Hill, the two commented on the father/son relationship, remarking on the ways that Donald Trump Jr. tries to emulate the president. They assert that those actions go so far as the president's son dating Kimberly GuilfoyleKimberly Ann GuilfoyleTrump allies to barnstorm Iowa for caucuses Kimberly Guilfoyle to lead joint Trump, RNC fundraising committee GOP lawmakers, Trump campaign rip 'liberal law professors' testifying in impeachment hearing MORE, a Fox News journalist they say looks like first lady Melania TrumpMelania TrumpPro-Trump singer wears 'Impeached and Re-elected' dress to the Grammys The Hill's 12:30 Report: Trump beefs up impeachment defense with Dershowitz, Starr Trump welcomes LSU to the White House: 'Go Tigers' MORE

"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."
