Following Saturday’s protest up Broadway to Trump Tower, Sunday I went to the Meadowlands to watch two of the worst teams in the National Football League play each other.
The Jets and the Los Angeles Rams.
So, again I had to watch a contest between two bad options.
One Jets fan wore a Trump mask and a sign that said, “Make the Jets Great Again.”
Among the thousands marching on Saturday, the folks around me were convinced that Trump was watching from his castle. This may be him:
But maybe not.
No matter. He was watching the protests taking place all across the nation, mostly by young people, but including many others who made it clear that Trump is not our President.
Just had a very open and successful presidential election. Now professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair!

Professional protesters? I know Rahm hires those. Since I am in New York I will protest for food. And so we had this great Korean style pork roast at a Manhattan restaurant Saturday night.
Celebrity spotting. Comedian Aziz Ansari was at a nearby table.
The New York Times is reporting that Trump has picked Reinhold Richard “Reince” Priebus as his Chief of Staff instead of noted anti-Semite Steve Bannon. They seemed relieved that Bannon will be Trump’s senior advisor.
The liberals at the Times also suggest a softening of Trump’s campaign rhetoric in his promise to only deport two million immigrants, the same number as Obama and Bush.
American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten, after campaigning furiously and uncritically for Clinton, now says Trump “understands working families.”
And the Times’ Paul Krugman takes back his predictions of economic disaster under a Trump regime.
“Failure to take action on climate may doom civilization, but it’s not clear why it should depress next year’s consumer spending.”
Well, thank god for that.
Beware of the liberals in the age of Trump. They are so afraid of a fight that they will try to paint Trump as not so bad after all.
One wrote me that I am not acting like an adult in my response to the Trump election.
That’s fine with me.
Saturday I was protesting in the streets.
And it was mostly with kids.
