Homeless and AIDS advocate dressed as Melania Trump with this sign on the back at the Un Welcome Home Trump rally by the Intrepid yesterday. What it cost for security per day for Melania to sit in Trump Tower costs tax payers 500k, enough to feed 100k homeless or 1,467 AIDS patients could have meds. “The 500k is an advocate of every report that I’ve seen, so it’s about a weighted average”.

Trump’s visit brought protests to Manhattan’s streets. Demonstrators gathered near the Intrepid, and were outside Trump Tower earlier that day.

TYRANNY AND CO. DSC09868Donald Trump, the fascist in chief is returning to New York City for the first time since the inauguration to give a speech on the Intrepid, which is essentially a museum for American military conquest.

Anyone who is concerned about the destruction of planet, the attacks on immigrants, the threats of nuclear war, the attacks on LGBTQ people, the patriarchy, and all of the other dangers posed by the Trump regime needs to come out.

BRING YOUR DRUMS AND NOISEMAKERS!

The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum is an American military and maritime history museum with a collection of museum ships in New York City. It is located at Pier 86 at 46th Street in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood on the West Side of Manhattan.- Wikipedia Air Force One landed at Kennedy Airport just before 6:30 p.m. Trump joined Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull at the Intrepid Museum in Manhattan on Thursday evening. They commemorated the 75th anniversary of World War II’s Battle of the Coral Sea, when U.S. and Australian forces teamed up to fight the Japanese. Aboard the Intrepid, Trump, a Queens-native, had his first face-to-face meeting with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull since their awkward phone call back in February of this year.

Richard Cardillo told me from Rise and Resist, “We have to send a message Loud and Clear, that based not only on the things he’s done the first 100 days but, how he ran a campaign that he is not welcome here. A Very strong message that the way that he has governed us, the way he has led us is not indicative of what we need as a leader and WE ARE GOING TO MAKE NOISE ABOUT THAT”.

The Law Office of Ronald L. Kuby is one of the most well-known and well-regarded in the fields of criminal defense and civil rights. Ronald L. Kuby has been a lawyer in New York City for more than 25 years, successfully representing clients in some of the most high-profile criminal and civil rights actions in the United States. We have represented private individuals, government employees including municipal workers, teachers, police officers, and firefighters, as well as artists and entertainers. Kuby told me, with people yelling and cars honking their horns in the background, why he was at the rally for Trumps fist visit back to NYC since his inauguration,, “I think it’s important that the people of his hometown tell him just how much we hate what he is doing and what he says he’s going to do”. I asked Ron Kuby what he thought Trumps worst policy was and he said it was difficult to name the worse one, “I think the people hurt the most right now are immigrants and minorities, it’s hard to say who else will be hurt in the future. What’s most offensive about the man is his Ignorance, HIS IGNORANCE OF HIS OWN IGNORANCE.”

We refuse, in the name of humanity, to accept a fascist America”.
