Trump is not president until next January. Yet the libTARD butthurt has been flowing ever since November 8th. And the drama never stops…
From Cosmopolitan: On the evening of November 28, dozens of protesters gathered outside of Manhattan’s Puck Building, the residence of Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner. The purpose of the protest was not to hate on Ivanka, but to appeal to her.
Donald Trump’s eldest daughter and former surrogate is now (along with her two brothers) on her father’s transition team — she has more influence over his policies and cabinet member appointments than ever before. “She has been portrayed as the most compassionate and rational Trump, the one person who always has her father’s ear,” protest co-organizer Jonathan Horowitz told Cosmopolitan.com via email.
Donald Trump supports repealing the Affordable Care Act (yes, please!), has said that climate change is a hoax, has vowed to nominate an anti-abortion Supreme Court justice, faces several conflicts-of-interests posed by his businesses, and has appointed white nationalists and racists like Steve Bannon and Sen. Jeff Sessions to his cabinet. Horowitz organized the protest with HALT Action Group, a collective of artists, writers and gallerists “who felt the need for an immediate response to mitigate the disaster of a Trump presidency,”Horowitz wrote.
“[Ivanka] also collects art and seems to have cultural aspirations,” Horowitz explained. “Since many of us are artists or work in art related fields, we thought we would try and voice our concerns about the future of our democracy to her first.”
In front of the Puck Building, HALT invited protesters to write letters to Ivanka, which the group says it will mail to her. “We hope that she will use her position of power within the transition team to encourage her father to seek out rational and qualified officials as he puts together his cabinet in the coming weeks,” Horowitz wrote. HALT estimates that people wrote about 300 letters on Monday. Take a look at a few of them, below:
