Astroturf Groups Storm Heritage Foundation to Protest Trump’s Budget

This morning, leftist activists stormed the Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C., to protest President Donald Trump’s proposed budget. Protestors, apparently, don’t like that the conservative think tank has largely influenced Trump’s economic agenda.

Here’s a live stream broadcast captured by their media outlet, Daily Signal:


Here’s more from Heritage and other supporters:


The groups in attendance tweeting were The People’s Lobby, Jane Adams Senior Caucus, and People’s Action — all progressive-affiliated groups–just to name a few. What exactly were protestors protesting?  Here’s more from the protestors:

The People’s Lobby apparently participated in this protest as part of their #ResistTrumpTuesday efforts. They held this so-called protest in line with their “Rise Up” People’s Action Founding Convention, which is in Washington, D.C., this week. More about them can be found below:

People’s Action affiliates around the country have pledged to stage public events every Tuesday in resistance to President Donald Trump’s agenda and to strengthen our movement for a people-and-planet agenda that serves the needs of all people, not just the wealthy and powerful.

These local events and actions will build toward the “Rise Up” People’s Action Founding Convention in Washington D.C., on April 23-25, 2017.  That’s when our grassroots organizers and progressive allies will take the fight to the power corridors and streets of the nation’s capital. Go to the “Rise Up” conference page to learn more.

Both The People’s Lobby and Jane Adams Senior Caucus hail from the Chicago, IL area. Hmmm. (The former resembles ACORN, if you look at them very closely.)

What is the goal of these perpetual protests? To undermine the Trump administration’s legitimacy, of course. If they keep this schtick up, they will guarantee eight years of President Trump. Ha!
