Anti-Trump graffiti reading “Fucc Trump” was spotted on Friday on Sepulveda Boulevard in Los Angeles. It was only one of dozens of incidents of vandalism sweeping the nation in the wake of President-elect Donald Trump’s victory last Tuesday.
The particular vandal responsible for the graffiti above, however, seems to have had no idea how to spell one of the most common expletives in the English language. (Perhaps he, or she, ran out of K’s scrawling “KKK” on other walls, elsewhere.)
Anti-Trump protests continued on Saturday evening in Los Angeles and other cities. The Associated Press reports: “The protests — held in big cities such as Los Angeles, New York and Chicago as well as smaller ones, such as Worcester, Massachusetts, and Iowa City, Iowa — were largely peaceful Saturday, although two police officers were slightly injured during protests in Indianapolis.”
After a protest in downtown L.A. that drew 8,000 people on Saturday afternoon, smaller groups of hundreds of demonstrators marched through the city at night. The Los Angeles Times reports: “Some were seen being detained downtown on suspicion of vandalism, including one seen spray painting “my body, my choice” in the 3rd Street tunnel.”
In San Luis Obispo, California, several pro-Trump protesters staged a counter-demonstration — “much to some marchers’ dismay,” according to the San Luis Obispo Tribune.
“A group of about five people held Trump campaign signs and waved an American flag, marching near the other protesters,” the Tribune added.
Protests have continued throughout the country as Democrats and left-wing activists have rejected the results of last Tuesday’s election.
In some cases, ordinary thugs appear to be using the political outrage as cover for their independent, violent behavior.
