Protesting vicious slanders is not, 'whining'.  The grievances listed in the report you provided are valid and factual.

Thousands signed a letter saying Trump was not welcome in Pittsburgh. He plans to visit anyway. By Allyson Chiu and Amy B Wang October 29 More than 35,000 people have signed an open letter to President Trump from the leaders of a Pittsburgh-based Jewish group who say the president will not be welcome in the city unless he denounces white nationalism and stops “targeting” minorities after a mass shooting Saturday at a local synagogue left 11 dead. https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2018/10/29/he-is-not-welcome-here-thousands-support-pittsburgh-jewish-leaders-calling-trump-denounce-white-nationalism/?utm_term=.1780cfc7a040

I don't think the president is a 'white nationalist' although he probably is a nationalist... as any and all presidents should be.


Those folks are free to speak their peace but it should be noted that the current population of Pittsburg is about 302,000 people which makes the 35,000 a very, very small fraction of the people there.

Antagonizes me that after the election, people come out of the woodwork to protest. Get a grip! The only influence we the people have is BEFORE the election! Where we spend a dollar is the only other influence we have, and as with the above, it takes numbers to agree with us that this, that, or something else is good, bad, or ugly. Respect is now, and always will be, EARNED! Never has it been given. Trump may want respect, certainly the office he holds deserves it, or he may not care, determined as he is to do things his way. The proof is waiting.......hope he has some good writers. That seems to have been the difference between the chroniclers of bad King John and those of good King Henry II. Facts and the need to explore them never ends. As a shocked descendant of both, I’ve no wish for the good old days.......lol

Angry Diners Confront Sen. Mitch McConnell at Kentucky Restaurant Alejandro de la Garza,Time• October 21, 2018 Mitch McConnell was confronted by fellow diners in a Louisville, Ky. restaurant on Friday night in the Senate majority leader’s latest encounter with protesters. McConnell and his wife, Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao, were dining at Havana Rumba, a popular Louisville Cuban restaurant, when he was accosted by fellow patrons. One man took McConnell’s to-go box off the table and dumped it on the sidewalk, reported the Courier Journal. “Why don’t you get out of here?” the man yelled at McConnell according to a video obtained by TMZ. “Why don’t you leave the entire country alone?” McConnell did not respond, while other patrons told the man to leave. Earlier that evening, a woman approached McConnell’s table and called him a “traitor” while other patrons in the restaurant clapped, according to the Courier Journal. The incident is the latest in a string of confrontations McConnell has had with protesters over the last few months. McConnell was confronted by a group opposing the nomination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh at the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport earlier this month. He was also accosted after a dinner at Georgetown University in June, and heckled by a group of protesters in Louisville in July. https://www.yahoo.com/news/angry-diners-confront-sen-mitch-170520595.html

"The incident is the latest in a string of confrontations McConnell has had with protesters over the last few months."


Interesting choice in wording by the author of the piece.  Note that the bulk of the article describes how McConnell has been accosted by rude wankers... meaning the rude wankers were the initial aggressors.  Yet toward the end of the piece, the author chooses to suggest or imply that it is McConnell who is the aggressor.


It's representative of the kind of reporting that has caused more people than just myself to dismiss most of the traditional news media outlets as hoplessly biased and unreliable.


Or maybe the reporter is unable to formulate a sentence properly?
