Immigrants Are Welcome Here, But Not NotMyPresident

West Side Highway, between 44th and 45th Streets, NYC, 5/4/17

Demonstrators along the West Side Highway in midtown unwelcomed Trump back to the town where he was resoundingly defeated in the 2016 election (in Manhattan, 64,929 to Clinton’s 579,013). As the motorcade passed, the crowd ferociously chanted, “New York hates you,” “No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA,” “We are the popular vote,” and breaking into song, “Olé, olé, olé, olé, fuck Trump, fuck Trump.”

Kept out of the conflict in Vietnam by debilitating bone spurs in one foot, or the other (he doesn’t remember left or right), the incompetent-chief now loves to play at military–officiously over-saluting “his” officers and rah, rah, rahing at veterans, like at tonight’s dinner speech at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.

Maybe Trump was worried there would be too much noise from the patriots in the streets around his monstrous Fifth Avenue building for him to get a good night’s sleep, because after the event on the aircraft carrier, he was off to yet another of his gaudy golf resorts (for the weekend, of course), this one in Bedminster, NJ. With the season at Mar-a-Lago winding down, the disruptive circus seems to be moving north.

RESIST.
