This New ‘Trump As DIRTY HARRY’ Painting Will Make Libs Lose It

Written by Wes Walker on July 19, 2019

It’s one of the most famous badass moments in film history — with a very Trumpian twist.

Before ‘The Transporter’ or ‘Bourne’, before ‘Die Hard’ or Terminator’, even before ‘Rocky’, or ‘Bruce Lee’ there was Dirty Harry.

As far as DGAF badasses in film go, Dirty Harry is a tough act to top.

And the one scene we remember him best for is when he’s eating a sandwich at some deli when a bank alarm starts ringing across the street. Still chewing his sandwich, he pulls his gun out from under his suit jacket and starts walking toward the bank.

He points his gun at the guy running out of the door, giving him a chance to stop. The bank robber shoots at him, and gets dropped by Dirty Harry’s hand cannon.

Without breaking a sweat, several more shots are fired as mayhem erupts around him and he makes his way to the first guy he shot, uttering those famous lines…

“I know what you’re thinking. Did he fire six shots or only five? Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I’ve kinda lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you’ve got to ask yourself one question: “Do I feel lucky?” Well, do ya, punk?”

Best. Bluff. Ever.

The ‘negotiation skills’ we saw in that scene on the screen have a real-life counterpart in the 45th president.

Whether he’s using a tweet, a carrot or a big, heavy stick, Trump seems to have great instincts on how to bring the other guy to the table, to drive his political rivals crazy, or to find creative ways to accomplish things that others have said ‘can’t be done’.

He’s also got nerves of steel, walking towards the fight that everyone else runs from.

No wonder the artist, our own Doug Giles, picked the absolute Badass Dirty Harry for his Trump-themed art series, entitled (what else?) Go Ahead, Make My Day.
