Post-Inauguration Short Takes

by baldilocks

Sabo trig­gers Hol­ly­wood lib­er­als yet again.

A con­ser­v­a­tive street artist famous for lam­poon­ing lib­eral Hol­ly­wood is cel­e­brat­ing the inau­gu­ra­tion of Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump at an anti-​Trump rally Fri­day in Los Ange­les using faux posters of Fox’s revival of the hit TV show 24.

The artist, who goes by the pseu­do­nym Sabo, is also attack­ing a bunch of musi­cians sched­uled to per­form at an anti-​Trump rally, also in Los Angeles.

Pro­test­ers gath­ered Fri­day in and around L.A. City Hall and L.A. Live — an enter­tain­ment area near the Sta­ples Cen­ter where NBA’s Lak­ers and NHL’s Kings play — for some­thing called “United Against Hate Inau­gu­ra­tion March,” where Sabo posted sev­eral fake adver­tise­ments for 24: Legacy.

I watched the feed of the Inau­gu­ra­tion and the parade yes­ter­day. It was espe­cially thrilling and grat­i­fy­ing to see the Tal­ladega Col­lege (AL) March­ing Tor­na­does as they ful­filled their mis­sion: they came to enter­tain. (I wrote about them last week at my blog.)

For­mer Pres­i­dent Obama and Mrs. Obama are now hang­ing out around my way for a post-​presidency vaca­tion: Palm Springs, CA. I guess they wanted to be among their peo­ple – oh and do some golf­ing, of course. One of my Kenyan cousins — an Obama fan, to be sure—would be thrilled to give the for­mer pres­i­dent some tips on the green.

Pres­i­dent Trump has restored the bust of Win­ston Churchill—a loan to the White House from the British dur­ing For­mer Pres­i­dent George W. Bush’s Admin­is­tra­tion – to its for­mer place of honor in the Oval Office. It had been rather infa­mously removed from the Oval Office by then-​President Obama back in 2009, and replaced by a bust of Mar­tin Luther King, Jr. A TIME Mag­a­zine reporter claimed that Pres­i­dent Trump had sub­se­quently removed the King bust, but that turned out to be false.

Oh and today: a lot of women are on the march for some reason.

Sabo triggers Hollywood liberals yet again.

A conservative street artist famous for lampooning liberal Hollywood is celebrating the inauguration of President Donald Trump at an anti-Trump rally Friday in Los Angeles using faux posters of Fox’s revival of the hit TV show 24.

The artist, who goes by the pseudonym Sabo, is also attacking a bunch of musicians scheduled to perform at an anti-Trump rally, also in Los Angeles.

Some Grand Master-level Trolling of Liberals

Protesters gathered Friday in and around L.A. City Hall and L.A. Live — an entertainment area near the Staples Center where NBA’s Lakers and NHL’s Kings play — for something called “United Against Hate Inauguration March,” where Sabo posted several fake advertisements for 24: Legacy.

I watched the feed of the Inauguration and the parade yesterday. It was especially thrilling and gratifying to see the Talladega College (AL) Marching Tornadoes as they fulfilled their mission: they came to entertain. (I wrote about them last week at my blog.)

Former President Obama and Mrs. Obama are now hanging out around my way for a post-presidency vacation: Palm Springs, CA. I guess they wanted to be among their people–oh and do some golfing, of course. One of my Kenyan cousins—an Obama fan, to be sure—would be thrilled to give the former president some tips on the green.

President Trump has restored the bust of Winston Churchill—a loan to the White House from the British during Former President George W. Bush’s Administration–to its former place of honor in the Oval Office. It had been rather infamously removed from the Oval Office by then-President Obama back in 2009, and replaced by a bust of Martin Luther King, Jr. A TIME Magazine reporter claimed that President Trump had subsequently removed the King bust, but that turned out to be false.

Oh and today: a lot of women are on the march for some reason.
