Someone went into Barnes & Noble and replaced the covers of Trump Jr.'s new book

A New York City Barnes & Noble was the site of a prank performed by comedy group The Good Liars. The release of the greasiest Trump’s new memoir (which spends most of its ghost-written pages complaining about being a victim) seems to have inspired the fun.

We changed the cover of
@DonaldJTrumpJr’s book to make it a little more honest and put them up in @BNBuzz. You're welcome, Junior! #DonnyLovesDaddy

We made a new Don Jr. book cover and put them in the Young Adult section of Barnes and Noble.

To add more context, the books were placed in a Young Adult display section at the store.

A New York City Barnes & Noble was the site of a prank performed by comedy group The Good Liars. The release of the greasiest Trump’s new memoir (which spends most of its ghost-written pages complaining about being a victim) seems to have inspired the fun.

To add more context, the books were placed in a Young Adult display section at the store.
I suspect most Young Adult readers and authors will be justifiably offended by the proximity of such trash writing, but the point being made has more to do with emotional age than anything else. According to [url=https://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/464165-giuliani-mocked-in-anonymous-nyc-subway-ad-need-a-lawyer-call]The Hill, the comedy duo has done this before, putting up “Need a lawyer? Call Crazy Rudy” subway advertisements.

Trump Jr.’s memoir-ish thing is technically titled Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us. But the alternative Daddy, Please Love Me: How everything I do is to earn my father’s love, does have a more honest and appropriately sad ring to it. Junior’s book is filled with the lack of awareness we have come to expect from a Trump, including his reflections on how his family has sacrificed in the same ways that those U.S. veterans buried at Arlington National Cemetery have.

So they defaced the property of someone with whom they have no fight (B&N)? Nice...

That's not "a prank", that's vandalism.

Nothing was defaced or destroyed. 

They just put another dust jacket on the book.

Big difference between "another" and "a different". Every reference I saw stated "changed" covers, which implies removing one, and replacing it.

So either journalists need to learn the meaning of words, or it was vandalism. I don't personally care which it is.

Probably anyone with a printer linked to a computer, and suitable paper.

Yes, suitable paper is the key. All properly folded up. Probably a publisher.
