With the Women’s March in full swing on Saturday, they started their march right at Pennsylvania and 12th Street, which just so happens to be where Trump International Hotel Washington, D.C. is located.
Guarded by railings and D.C. police officers, I decided to plant myself in front of the old post office and just observe the people’s reaction as they walked by. It did not take long for people to start acting out.
Countless people were taking selfies and group photos of themselves giving the middle finger to a building that bears President Donald Trump’s name, but of which he was not in at the time. (He was spending part of the day to receive the remains of fallen service members.)
Chants of “fuck you,” “shame,” and “get the fuck out of my country” happened more times than I care to remember.
Of course it wasn’t just the hotel that got the receiving end of the #resist movement, but also the D.C. police. Many verbally of the marchers berated the officers.
