A member of Patriot Prayer, a pro-Trump organization that regularly organizes “free speech” rallies in the president’s name, was caught on camera trying –and hilariously failing — to rip up an anti-fascism sign.
In a video posted on YouTube by user Nate Gowdy, a man wearing a Patriot Prayer shirt picks up an anti-fascism sign that was brought to a May Day demonstration at Seattle on Tuesday and attempts to tear it up to throw it in the trash.
As the man struggled to tear up the sign, the woman filming him mocked him and informed him that there are “a lot of engineers” who live in Seattle that could help him successfully tear up a piece of cardboard.
After he once again failed to tear up the sign, the woman laughed at him and suggested that he take the lid off the nearby trash can and just stuff the sign into it without ripping it up.
As he proceeded to lift the lid, she then mocked him further by telling him that he “needed a liberal” to help him dispose of a sign he didn’t like.
This humiliated him even further and he then decided to not throw the sign away in an act of defiance against his female tormentor. He then angrily walked away — while still holding the sign.

New York’s legislature gives landlords a lesson in democracy
The knockout punch that the New York State Legislature just landed fighting landlords over spiraling rents ought to be attracting wider attention.
Just as with healthcare access or prescription drug prices, the cost of rent increases that mostly benefit big apartment owners is a challenge to the income-gap society that are at the heart of the national political debate. Every urban center in the country is having housing problems, and rents, like mortgages, are a subject at every kitchen table.
For once, the New York Legislature, whose Democrats overcame internecine divisions this session, has abolished rules that let building owners deregulate apartments, and closed loopholes that have permitted landlords to raise rents. And the changes for better tenant protection were made permanent, eliminating the recurring drama over these issues.
Trump’s EPA wants minimal limits on poison in drinking water
The Trump EPA calculated recommended limits of a dangerous chemical sometimes found in drinking water that can harm babies’ brain development that were more than 9 times higher than those imposed by a few states by fudging a key number in the calculation.
The Trump recommended a limit for perchlorate, which can harm infant brain development, of 56 micrograms per liter, far above the limit of 6 that California imposed and 2 that Massachusetts set, more than a decade ago.
MSNBC’s Mika scorches Trump over sex assault denials: ‘What type of woman would you rape?’
MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski revealed the horrific meaning behind President Donald Trump's defense against new rape claims.
Author and columnist E. Jean Carroll has accused the president of raping her more than 20 years ago after a chance meeting at a Manhattan department store, but Trump insists he couldn't have assaulted her because she's not his "type."
"We're talking about sexual assault, talking about actual rape and the president said that she's not his type," the "Morning Joe" co-host said. "So I guess the follow-up question is, since you have a type when it comes to rape, what's your type, Donald Trump, and is it any of the other women who claimed that you raped them?"
