Today is President’s Day so naturally the progressive left is holding rallies to protest President Trump. These “Not My President’s Day” rallies are scheduled to take place around the country, including New York, LA, Chicago, Washington, D.C. and a dozen or so other cities. In New York, 15,000 people have said they plan to attend. In LA the figure is just over 4,000 and in Chicago it’s just under that. Around 1,000 people have said they will attend the Washington, D.C. rally. A description posted on the Facebook page for the New York rally reads in part:

Donald Trump is literally our President, but figuratively, he has attacked every value New Yorkers embody and does not represent our interests…

Donald Trump stands against the progress we have worked hard to enact. He does not represent our interests. He was voted in by a minority of the American public but governs as if there’s no resistance. But there is — and on February 20th, we will honor previous presidents by exercising our constitutional right to assemble and peacefully protest everything Donald Trump stands for.

The organizers for the New York rally also included 3 hashtags associated with the rally. They are #Impeach, #Resist, and #NotMyPresident. Many of the rallies started a short time ago so pictures are already appearing on Twitter. From NYC:

These rallies are just getting started. I’ll update this post with some video as it becomes available.
