Trump just got himself another diss:

Since 2009, Mama Ayesha’s restaurant in Adams Morgan has featured every US president from Eisenhower to Obama on a large mural on the side of the restaurant.
President-elect Donald Trump won’t be joining them:
“Our official position is that it is not in the budget,” says Amir Abu-El-Hawa, whose family owns the restaurant.

Mama Ayesha’s has been at the same location since it opened its doors as the Calvert Cafe in 1960.
The mural depicts founder “Mama” Ayesha Abraham with the US leaders. “This is Mama welcoming the presidents to DC,” says Abu-El-Hawa, who is her great-nephew. “She was the American dream. For a Muslim and Arab woman immigrant from Palestine to come here on her own and build this business, is a remarkable legacy.”

15. It's on the street, not in the building. I smell Trumper Nazi defacement and vandalism in the near

 

future.

Those sociopaths would destroy the Mona Lisa if they thought it was an insult to their overlord, the Assfaced Shitgibbon.

3. If I ever get back to DC I'll make it a point to eat there.

During the Nixon years, I supported any business with an "Impeach Tricky Dick" sign in the window, and there were a lot of them.

It's sad that it's come to this but hopefully they've paid attention to what a TrumpenNazi did to that pizza joint and hired security.

12. You can put Assfaced Shitgibbon there. Just paint a horse's ass with a huge swastika on it shitting

 

on the Constitution and USA.

Mural problem solved. If some asshole trumper bitches, just have them prove and explain why Shitgibbon isn't a huge swastika wearing horse's ass shitting on the constitution and the country.

Then watch the mental gymnastics begin. Please record it and put it on Youtube just for entertainment purposes.

31. Please don't minimize the problems this budget problem presents. There are solutions.

 

For example, photocopy this Chinese tribute to the real estate swindler and put it up with some duck (sic) tape. 25 cents maybe?



http://www.nytimes.com/2016/12/29/world/asia/trump-china-rooster-statue.html?_r=0

If it is good enough for the Chinese, it is good enough for us.

What would it cost to have some balloons made that look like that? Could just set them free across the land...

shot with paint guns. Just by some idiot, no political reasons apparently.

But yeah, people need to stand strong against Trump. I'm enjoying the little acts of rebellion and disses.

40. Good!

These small acts of rebellion add up. If Trump can lie with impunity, his supporters humiliate others (basically minorities and women) in public then decent citizens can surely push back in whatever way they can. Refusing to respect this small-minded man and his stupid mouth is a good start.

Thumbs up for Mama Ayeshas!
