Ah, Presidents Day. It’s a time to go forth and celebrate Washington’s birthday, reflect on our favorite and least favorite presidents (see Presidents Day: Obama vs. His Predecessors in Seven Famous Quotes)… And also snag some deals on furniture. Stop judging me. Instead, judge the people who buy mattresses at full price.
While some of us spend Presidents Day the American way others are celebrating by, drum roll please, another… protest!
They’re calling this one the ‘Not My President’s Day’ rally.
Thousands of Americans marked Presidents Day on Monday by denouncing the current occupant of the White House – President Donald Trump.
“Not My President’s Day” rallies were staged in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Philadelphia and more than two dozen other cities across the nation…
In Trump’s hometown, a huge throng rallied outside the Trump Hotel. Many carried signs that read “Not My President” and “Resist” and chanted “No Ban, No Wall” – a reference to Trump’s executive order on travel by immigrants and his wall. Sporadic shouting matches erupted in nearby Columbus Circle when a handful of Trump supporter’s exchanged words with rally-goers.
It was the fifth straight day of protests in Gotham against Trump.
Does it seem like protests are happening every day? You’re not being overly sensitive. Unless you consider yourself a feminist. A report from NBC reveals that since January – every single day of the week – anti-Trump cretin whinage is taking place. Protests just won’t stop seeping from their bowels.
This is what tolerance and unity looks like in the world of liberalism. Yeah, it’s gag-worthy by even Amy Schumer’s standards. Expect more of this over the next four to eight years. Personally, I look forward to the Saint Patty’s day protests we’ll be seeing. What creative hashtag will they coin next? Keep your fingers crossed for something along the lines of #NotAllLeprechauns.
As they say, a social justice warrior’s work is never over. There’s still lots of crying to be done…
