Hockey goalie is getting some 'huuuge' attention for his mask with image of Trump painted on it

WASHINGTON (CIRCA) — A 14-year-old hockey player's mask has gotten some attention online for the artwork on it — an image of President Donald Trump.

The artist, Doug Wager, told USA Today that when the family asked if he would paint it, he said, "Sure, why not?"

The image shows President Trump with a trowel and a brick surrounded by the "wall" that was a main feature of his campaign and administration. The mask belongs to a player on the Palmyra Black Knights in Pennsylvania.

The mask has been circulating on social media, soliciting some strong reactions — both positive and negative.

Wager said that he considers the mask a "freedom of expression."

“It’s not like they wanted a Mexican flag with a slash through it or anything like that. I think they wanted to be funny," He told USA Today. "Normally, there’s no reason why anyone would be upset over having the President of the United States on a mask. Unfortunately, this is the kind of thing that people take offense to and, in my opinion, it’s a willful act to be outraged.”
