Jason Selvig and Davram Stiefler, a comedy duo known as The Good Liars, pasted that poster to the front of the Armed Forces Career Center in Brooklyn in the wake of Trump Sr.’s Iran saber-rattling.

In an Instagram caption, the two wrote, “We put up some #honestsigns at the Army Recruitment Center. Hopefully we aren’t going to war, but if we did, we know one guy who won’t enlist.”

The duo also told the Huffington Post, “In the wake of Trump's latest reckless foreign policy actions that could very easily result in more and more troops being sent to the Middle East, we thought the public deserved a reminder of who the Trumps are.”

Selvig and Stiefler are known for their anti-Trump shenanigans. They previously snuck Putin-themed merchandise into Trump Tower with the caption “45th President of the United States.”

This will likely rankle loyal Trumpie conservatives, but then there’s an easy way to shut Selvig and Stiefler up. Trump Jr. could actually enlist.

Bwah ha ha ha ha ha!

Funny.

He only shoots at dumb animals — which means he probably shouldn’t go hunting with his brother anymore. But then who am I to spoil his fun?
