T.I. Protests Donald Trump Winning Election
Rapper T.I. is one of many celebrities that aren’t a fan of president elect, Donald Trump. Last night, the outspoken rapper/actor took to the streets, protesting Trump’s election win. Check out his Instagram clips below.
Wednesday night, in at least 10 cities, protests took place in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Boston, Washington, D.C., Portland, Ore., St. Paul, Minn. and other cities. According to a report, an estimated 2,000 protesters shouted angrily in downtown Seattle.
Police in riot gear struggled to hold back scores of protesters in some of the cities as protesters chanted “Not My President” and “No Racist USA.” The protests were mostly peaceful.
If you stand with Trump, you stand by racism, homophobia, sexism, abuse, and equality in every sense of the word. Tonight, I felt solidarity in the presence of those that would also risk their lives in order to defend peace. We will continue to protest as long as peace is threatened. We will defend immigrants. We will defend muslims. We will defend women. We will defend black lives. We will defend the LGBT community. We will not be subjugated by an orange tyrant's temper and bigotry. #TrumpProtest #NOTMYPRESIDENT
In Los Angeles, protesters poured into the streets near City Hall and torched a giant Trump effigy. Later in the night, hundreds marched onto the busy 101 Freeway which brought the highway to a complete standstill.
In Washington, D.C., hundreds took to the streets carrying signs saying “Nasty Women Fight Back” and “White Males for Equality for All.”
Two separate anti-Trump demonstrations converged in front of the Trump International Hotel. They chanted and yelled “Impeach Donald Trump” and toward the end yelled at police officers who stood guard at the hotel entrance.
In New York, thousands of demonstrators blocked off streets around Trump Tower near the busy intersection of 57th Street and Fifth Avenue, chanting “hey hey, ho ho, Donald Trump has got to go” and “p—y grabs back,” a reference to taped conversations of Trump making lewd commentary about women.
