The architect of George W. Bush’s presidency triggered a protest to his visit to a Wisconsin university Thursday, drawing about 40 protesters carrying signs calling him a war criminal at the University of Wisconsin-Milwauke.
“We believe that before he speaks at this university for thousands of dollars, he should be put on trial for the crimes against humanity that he and the rest of the Bush administration committed,” Natasha Morgan of Students for a Democratic Society told local tv network WISN.
Hecklers interrupted Bush’s former Deputy Chief of Staff several times.
“I’ll make a deal with you,” Rove said. “I’ll keep my remarks short and then you can get a microphone and you can ask me any damn question you want. Until then, do something that may come hard to a liberal intellectual, and that is show respect for the rights of others, like everybody else who came here tonight.”
Rove used his speech to slam Obama, saying that he had tripled the deficit. Rove believes that Americans voted for the president because they mistakenly thought he was inspirational.
Reports say that Rove was paid $25,000 for his speech.

Air Force admits it ‘would’t be surprised’ if they were ‘Trump Turnberry’s largest customer’
The Air Force has not only been staying at Trump's resorts for three years, but they were also likely the largest customer of Trump's Scottish golf club.
Washington Post reporters David Fahrenthold and Jonathan O'Connell outed President Donald Trump for working his official relationship with the Saudi royal family so they'd stay at his hotels. Politico reporter Natasha Bertrand uncovered the fact that the U.S. Air Force was being used to funnel cash to the president's companies.
Trump's Turnberry resort was losing money until he was able to reroute Air Force plans to land in Scotland to refuel instead of a military base. While that might cost American taxpayers significantly more money, it was good business for the president. Now the resort is doing extremely well.
CNN commentators laugh at GOP strategist’s pathetic rationale for why Trump’s Hispanic comments aren’t racist
On Tuesday's edition of CNN's "OutFront," Mitch McConnell adviser and GOP strategist Scott Jennings offered a feeble defense of President Donald Trump's demand of his Hispanic adviser Steve Cortes at a rally in New Mexico that he say whether he prefers "the country or the Hispanics"
"Of course it masks racism, and he doesn't do a good job of masking it," said Democratic strategist Maria Cardona. "These comments were racist, ignorant and downright stupid. We shouldn't be surprised from what we've seen this president spew, from the moment he came down the escalator when he announced his campaign when he called Mexicans rapists and murderers and what else can we expect from this man? ... In the latest Univision/Latino Decisions poll, you have 71 percent of Latinos who said they will vote for the democratic candidate. 15 percent maybe will vote for Trump. He's in dire straits for Latinos."
‘Lewandowski gave the House what they needed for articles of impeachment for Trump’: Ex-Republican official
Corey Lewandowski gave Democrats what they needed to file articles of impeachment; a former Republican member of Congress confessed on MSNBC Tuesday.
During his hearing, Lewandowski admitted that President Donald Trump instructed him to obstruct justice. Lewandowski tried to claim that it's clear there was no obstruction because he went to the beach with his children instead. In fact, he sold out Trump for conspiring to obstruct justice and attempting to obstruct justice.
