I've been reading about the Trump protestors in London.
My immediate reaction was of course, I love them. I love the signs and the Trump balloons, and I love the lady who shivved the Trump-baby balloon because I got to see the image of the shrivelled Trump-baby balloon.
On the other hand, would I protest the ruler of another country if he came to visit the United States? I know exiles would protest the Shah, and so on, but how many of the crowd in London were American exiles forced out by Trump? If Putin or this Boris clown or some dictator came to Saint Louis, would I be out there marching? Should I? This does open up new marching opportunities.
And then back on the other hand, he is a ridiculous figure, and they're protesting his hatred-based edicts, and who wouldn't pass up a chance to protest a fascist if he came to town?
I'm not torn down the middle, of course. It's about 98% "Yeah, he is an idiot," and a little nagging 2% "Stay in your lane, London."
