Who said that in politics is forbidden to have feelings and these expressed by this extraordinary way in the streets of Uk? A giant mural showing Donald Trump passionately kissing the Former Mayor of London and Conservative MP, Boris Johnson , who leads the campaing for Brexit, made surface on the side of a building in Bristol, Britain, just one month before its referendum on EU membership.
This street-art kiss portrays the US Republican presidential nominee (even though a lot of US Republicans including former president Bush don’t like him at all) and the former mayor of London – some people describe them both as populists intenting on shaking up their countries’ political establishments -bringing their lips close enough to have a kiss!

Mr Johnson is currently leading the campaign for the UK to leave the EU. Johnson has been tipped as well as a possible future prime minister if Prime Minister David Cameron, who wants UK to remain in the EU, loses the vote.
US presidential republican nominee Mr Trump has said that the UK would be “better off without” the European Union, and blamed the EU for the migration crisis.
His comments led to thousands of people signing a petition demanding he was banned from entering Britain.
“I think that maybe it’s time, especially in light of what’s happened with the craziness that’s going on with migration, with people pouring in from all over the place. I think that Britain will end up separating.”
“I’m not endorsing it one way or another but that’s my opinion. I think a lot of people want to see that happen.
It was painted by the Campaign group We Are Europe in order to encourage UK voters to vote to stay in the European Union. “Not #INFORTHIS?,” the accompanying text reads. “Register to vote on the EU referendum now!”
Group Spokeswoman Harriet Kingaby said: “People need to look at this image and think, ‘is this the future I want’?” (BBC News).
The Bristol painting is similar to the picture My God, Help Me to Survive This Deadly Love, sometimes referred to as the Fraternal Kiss, a 1990 graffiti painting on the Berlin Wall by Dmitri Vrubel.
Such kissing photos are reminiscent of the 1979 photo of former Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev and East German Chancellor Erich Honecker which can be seen today in graffiti form in the Berlin Wall.
The socialist fraternal kiss or socialist fraternal embrace is a special form of greeting between the statesmen of Communist countries. This act demonstrates the special connection that exists between Socialist states.
The socialist fraternal kiss consisted of an embrace, combined with a series of three kisses on alternate cheeks. In rare cases, when the two leaders considered themselves exceptionally close, the kisses were given on the mouth rather than on the cheeks. The socialist fraternal embrace consists of a series of three deep hugs, alternating between the left and right sides of the body, without kissing.This modified greeting was adopted by Communist leaders in Asia, which lacks a tradition of cheek kissing as greeting. During the Cold War, Communist leaders in Asia consented to receive kisses from Europeans and Cubans, but they themselves omitted the kiss.
Other similar funny and nice artwork of Mr Trump includes a depiction of him by LA artist Illma Gore who sketched the businessman with a micropenis and presented it at the Maddox Gallery in London.
Donald Trump and Boris Johnson are no joke. Two dangerous clowns and brothers in arms. https://t.co/BCEez7iPY5
