Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, August 07, 2018

West Hollywood councillors have voted "unanimously" to remove Donald Trump's star from the city's Walk of Fame. The marker, which was unveiled in 2007, has been vandalised several times since the US president took office and was almost completely destroyed in July in a pickaxe attack. At a meeting on Monday evening, West Hollywood City Council opted to recommend to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce that the star should be removed.

On Monday, 24-year-old Austin Mikel Clay was charged with vandalising the star last month and could face up to three years behind bars if found guilty.

The marker has become something of a battleground for Mr Trump's supporters and opponents during his presidency, coming under attack multiple times.

In October 2016, a man was filmed hitting the star with a sledgehammer, while it has also been spray-painted and spat on.

Perhaps these City Fathers are removing Trump's star because it is an attractive nuisance. No matter what the reason, rest assured that Donald eats his liver over it and fantasizes revenge.

Ha!

Haaaa Haaaaaa Haaaaaa Haa

They should replace it with something that is as equally as deserving as Trump, such as a pile of steaming dog poop.

From what I've read, the star is property of Los Angeles, not West Hollywood. It is up to Los Angeles to remove it. The vote by West Hollywood was largely symbolic, as the summary says, a recommendation.

That is correct, but the City of Los Angeles will have no compunction in removing it, they can blame it on WeHo, which is a primarily gay enclave next to Hollywood, which is part of the City of Los Angeles.

Only a piece of ---- would consider Trump to be "near and dear" to them.

The city council just opened a huge can of worms given the reason they are pulling Trump's star.

Are they going to pull all of the other actor's stars who were as bad, or worse, than Trump toward women?

If not, this is nothing but pettiness and reflects very poorly on them - that their own personal politics outweigh the rationale for putting a star on the sidewalk.

jeff j focuses on trumps woman problem, and ignores his other 100 problems that are as bad or worse.

I bet trumps water is really heavy at this point.

This had nothing to do with "nice things"; it was something with "trump" written on it.

Trump brings out the worst in his detractors.

jeff j focuses on trumps woman problem...

Alex,

City Council is making that focus - from the linked article:

"Allowing Mr Trump to continue to have a star in light of his behaviour towards women, particularly in the #timesup and #metoo movements, should not be acceptable in the Hollywood and entertainment industry communities."

If that is truly their rationale, they are going to be moving a LOT of stars if they are being honest. Obviously, they are not going to start removing other stars, so it's clear they are being dishonest.

Personally, I don't care.

Have they removed Bill Cosby? Kevin Spacey? Charlie Sheen and a whole lot of others?

I think they should build a public pay toilet on the spot. I bet there would be lineups.

Are Americans regularly vandalizing those stars, too? I didn't know they were hated as much as Humpy.

Like the Constitution, the American Dream, American Exceptionalism and American leadership in the world?

Go ahead. You are doing a great job of destroying all those things so far.

No one on the rii-ight has thought to equate this with censoring history?

You know, like when the racist liberals make Jim Crow era Civil War "monuments" disappear?

Thanks for the excellent talking point, Snoofy!

Actually I agree with this sentiment. Leave it, but leave it all f***ed up so the world can remember what happens to traitors and cun*s when they seek to weaken the United States.
