In the wake of the election, a curious thing happened. Masses of people who proclaimed Trump would steal the election, protest, and cause riots, were doing that themselves.
Imagine had this occurred if Hillary won. Both Hillary and president Obama would have issues speeches telling everyone to calm down.
Where are they now?
Fox News reports Trump Adviser Urges Obama, Clinton to Speak Out on Protests.
Obama and Clinton should have spoken out without being asked. It’s telling they did not speak out even after being asked!
Riots in Portland
Thousands protesting Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential election took to the streets for a third night of demonstrations and vigils in several US cities.
An anti-Trump rally in Portland, Oregon, revved up as protesters confronted police Thursday night. What started out as a peaceful march, with more than 4,000 people, quickly turned violent.
Over the course of the evening, “anarchists” in the crowd threw objects at officers, vandalized local businesses and damaged cars, Portland Police Sgt.
‘Professional Protesters’ Riot
Whole World Watching
Misguided Clinton backers were chanting “the whole world is watching” and “Donald Trump is not my president”.
Yes, the whole world was watching people makes fools and criminals of themselves.
USA Today reports Thousands Across the USA Protest Trump Victory
In Los Angeles, protesters poured into the streets near City Hall and torched a giant Trump effigy, the Los Angeles Times reported. Later in the night, hundreds marched onto the busy 101 Freeway which brought the highway to a complete standstill. The California Highway Patrol and the Los Angeles Police Department —who urged protesters to remain lawful and peaceful — responded and were seen leading demonstrators away from the busy highway. At least 13 people were later arrested, LAPD Officer Tony Im told the Los Angeles Times.
In Washington, D.C., hundreds took to the streets carrying signs saying “Nasty Women Fight Back” and “White Males for Equality for All.”
The unrest culminated when two separate anti-Trump demonstrations converged in front of the Trump International Hotel. They chanted and yelled “Impeach Donald Trump” and toward the end yelled at police officers who stood guard at the hotel entrance.
In New York, thousands of demonstrators blocked off streets around Trump Tower near the busy intersection of 57th Street and Fifth Avenue, chanting “hey hey, ho ho, Donald Trump has got to go” and “p—y grabs back,” a reference to taped conversations of Trump making lewd commentary about women. One woman protester was topless while another climbed on top of a tree to see the activity. Taxis, city buses and passenger vehicles stood at a standstill.
In Boston, thousands of anti-Donald Trump protesters streamed through downtown, chanting “Trump’s a racist” and carrying signs that said “Impeach Trump” and “Abolish Electoral College.”
In Oregon, dozens of people blocked traffic in downtown Portland, burned American flags and forced a delay for trains on two light-rail lines. Trump supporters taunted the demonstrators with signs. At one point, a lone Trump supporter was chased across Pioneer Courthouse Square and hit in the back with a skateboard before others intervened.
What #NeverTrump and #NotMyPresident Looks Like on the Streets
The irony and counterproductive nature of these protests is striking. Riots won’t change a thing but they do shed some light on Clinton, Soros, and Obama.
All Trump has to do now is be half as bad as these rioters claim and he will look good.
