A poster showing Pope Francis and a devilish, gun-toting Donald Trump kissing appeared in Rome today (May 11, 2017), less than two weeks before their first meeting, according to the ABC News website.
The caption "The Good Forgives the Evil" is written in English and Italian in tiny letters along Francis' belt. The anonymous poster was signed by "TV Boy Official."
In the life-sized image, the white-robed, halo-clad Francis embraces Trump, who has red horns, a red cape, and a gun in a holster. Francis is scheduled to meet with Trump on May 24 at the Vatican.
Pope Francis has previously been the focus of anonymous street art and sarcastic humor in Rome. For example, earlier this year, scores of posters ridiculing Francis' liberal policies toward traditional Catholic doctrine -- such as allowing remarried divorced Catholics to receive Holy Communion -- were posted throughout Rome.
