Protests Happening Across the Nation

Protesters took to the streets Wednesday in at least 10 cities to march against president-elect Donald Trump – and numerous college students and faculty leaders took to social media to announce support groups and even postponed exams.

Protests were underway in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Boston, Washington, D.C., Portland, Ore., St. Paul, Minn. and several other cities. An estimated 2,000 protesters shouted angrily in downtown Seattle, expressing their frustration at the Trump victory over Democrat and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who won 228 electoral votes to Trump’s 279.

Seattle police said they were investigating a report of a shooting near the site of the protest in that city, but it may not have involved protesters.

In Los Angeles, protesters poured into the streets near City Hall and torched a giant Trump effigy, the Los Angeles Times reported. Later in the night, hundreds marched onto the busy 101 Freeway which brought the highway to a complete standstill. The California Highway Patrol and the Los Angeles Police Department —who urged protesters to remain lawful and peaceful — responded and were seen leading demonstrators away from the busy highway. At least 13 people were later arrested, LAPD Officer Tony Im told the Los Angeles Times.

In Washington, D.C., hundreds took to the streets carrying signs saying “Nasty Women Fight Back” and “White Males for Equality for All.”

The unrest culminated when two separate anti-Trump demonstrations converged in front of the Trump International Hotel. They chanted and yelled “Impeach Donald Trump” and toward the end yelled at police officers who stood guard at the hotel entrance.

In New York, thousands of demonstrators blocked off streets around Trump Tower near the busy intersection of 57th Street and Fifth Avenue, chanting “hey hey, ho ho, Donald Trump has got to go” and “p—y grabs back,” a reference to taped conversations of Trump making lewd commentary about women. One woman protester was topless while another climbed on top of a tree to see the activity. Taxis, city buses and passenger vehicles stood at a standstill.

“We’re (mad) so we’re out here in the streets,” said demonstrator Omar Aqeel, a 27-year-old film producer who lives in Brooklyn.

While he and other demonstrators said they were aware that protests could not reverse the election, they said they still felt it would have an effect on the future.

“I hope it rallies everyone together as a wake up call,” Aqeel said.

“I think there’s a chance for impeachment at the end of the day,” said protester Joey Henriquez, a 22-year-old student at the City College of New York, who lives in Manhattan. “We can’t let him have eight years.”

In Boston, thousands of anti-Donald Trump protesters streamed through downtown, chanting “Trump’s a racist” and carrying signs that said “Impeach Trump” and “Abolish Electoral College.”

In Chicago, several hundreds of protesters gathered near the Trump International Hotel and Tower to express their displeasure with the president-elect.

The protesters held signs with messages such as “Love Trumps Hate,” “Not My President ” and expletive-laden repudiations.

Chloe Stratton, 33, a transgendered woman who moved to Chicago earlier this year, said she fears for what a Trump-Pence White House holds for the nation’s LGBT community.

Pence has opposed same-sex marriage and expressed support for shock therapy for people with same-sex attractions.

“I am terrified for my life,” said Stratton, who added that she has begun exploring options to move away from the U.S.

Police said five people were arrested in Chicago over the course of the protest on minor charges—two for obstructing traffic, one for criminal trespass, one for reckless conduct, and one for criminal trespass and resisting arrest.

Judge Orders Birdman to Show Cash Money Receipts in Lil Wayne Lawsuit

Lil Wayne was granted a breakthrough in his legal battle over unpaid royalties this week.

Lil Wayne Reality Show On The Way?

A judge has ordered Birdman to open up his books to provide a record of what a $100 million advance Cash Money received from Universal Music Group, has gone towards. Disputed in the case is $70 million of those $100 million dollars, which Wayne was supposed to get a split of for marketing and recording expenses, in addition to the royalties he claims to have never received.

BIRDMAN SUED FOR SAMPLING MUSIC

Lil Wayne’s legal team recently demanded a more comprehensive money trial, after his attorneys dismissed the 22,015 pages of legal documents provided by Birdman’s accountant as useless. Lawyers handling the case for Birdman have asserted that they provided what was available, confirming that much of the financial records for the company were mismanaged for a period of two years, TMZ reports.

The judge overseeing the case has given the defense 30 days to locate and hand over all pertinent financial documents.

Donald Trump‘s admission about President Barack Obama, 55, has the internet going crazy. For over five years the 70-year-old has refused to say Obama is a US citizen, but on Sept. 15, he did the unexpected. “President Barack Obama was born in the United States, period,” Donald said at his new hotel in Washington, D.C. He ended his shocking speech with, “Now we all want to get back to making America strong and great again.” The GOP nominee teased the event at his hotel as a “major announcement,” which, by the reaction on social media, it was. He continued to blame Hillary Clinton, 68, for the “birtherism” dispute. Donald mentioned in his speech, “Hillary Clinton and her campaign of 2008 started the birther controversy. I finished it.”
