At what point can we say they’ve run out of ideas for creative forms of protest, and they’re doing any random, obnoxious thing, just because?
Hundreds have signed up for a Facebook event called “Chicago moons Trump Tower”, in which hundreds plan to drop their trousers in front of Trump Tower Chicago as an act of protest.
According to the Facebook page for the event, titled “Operation “Kiss Our Asses, Release Your Taxes,” the goal of the protest is to get President Trump to release his tax returns.
I’m absolutely positive that after repeated unsuccessful attempts, during the primary and election season, by every opponent, every commentator and pundit, to convince him to release his taxes, a couple hundred morons dropping their pants in mid-February, on some street in Chicago is going to be that trigger that causes a sudden wave of transparency from Donald Trump.
The page goes on to say:
Protestors will meet at 3:30 p.m. Sunday February 12 at Trump Tower Chicago, and plan to moon the building for 10 seconds starting at 4:00 p.m. in what event organizers call “a powerful message to Washington elites.”
The “message” actually says more about the people who would do something like this and call it protest than the one they’re protesting.
It says they have no lives.
The event is being sponsored by a comedy group called “S#!TSHOW.”
I’ve never heard of them. I’m going to say this is a way to get people out to their shows.
At the time of this writing, their Facebook page says 1.7k are interested in attending, but only 419 say they’re going.
I suspect that those 419 people will each get flyers, with show dates and locations for S#!TSHOW’s upcoming events.
They’ll all get pneumonia.
