Protest

Oi, guvnor, what's all this about then? 

It appears that the British are coming... to protest the American president, you know, that reality-TV gameshow host who enacted a Muslim Ban last friday, and his visit across the pond. It would appear as though they don't want him either. 

And what better way to voice their concerns than with some hilarious protest signs. Here are some of the best:

Uber is steadily paddling through a rocky PR shitstorm. Over the weekend, following news of the Muslim Travel Ban issued by the Trump administration, thousands of angry citizens turned up at JFK airport in NY to stage an open protest. The NY Taxi Workers Alliance additionally called for an hour-long halt in services to further protest the ban. 

And that's right about where Uber issued a tweet saying they'd halt surge prices, and continue providing rides to and fro the airport. Some folks took this as an insensitive ploy to swoop in and capitalize on profits otherwise being willingly forfeited by taxi workers, eager to put on a display of outrage and unrest over the Muslim Travel Ban. Hundreds, if not thousands of people went on to delete the Uber app from their phones, and these are some of the more colorful reasons for why:

"We didn't start the fire."

Yeah, Conner started it.  Conner started the fire. Carter owned the fire. Carter is fire.

Conner got busted at anti-Trump rally at a fire. When Fox News if he participated in the fire, he responded, “I actually kind of started this fire.”

Why?

“Because I felt like it, and I’m saying, ‘Screw our president.”

Just a quick update on all those Facebook check-ins in North Dakota yesterday. As it turns out, the Morton County Sherrif's Department says that it is not looking at check-ins to verify protestors of the Dakota Access Pipeline. 

The Morton County Sheriff's Department took to Facebook and said:

Yesterday, thousands of Facebook users "checked in" at Standing Rock Indian reservation in Cannon Ball, ND in hopes of confusing police and showing support for the activists.

Despite the validity of the original post, The LA Times says, "Some Native American activists still welcomed the check-ins as another form of showing support for the months-long protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline, proposed to run past tribal land on its route between North Dakota and Illinois."
