I’m in the first picture on the left with my best friend. We went to the Trump Rally protest in Eugene. I met some cool people and the protest was like one big block party. We were peaceful overall and there was live music from a mariachi band. The Trump supporters kept telling us to go fuck ourselves, get a job, and many more things. Here are some of my favorites from the protest.
Also, I was interviewed by the AP.
They cut out most of what I said which was, “compared to Bernie Sanders 30 year tenure in congress, Trump is like a college student trying to get a job out of college, no experience. He’s racist, sexist, he made fun of a disabled reporter, and he’s made islamaphobic remarks. Bernie Sanders has been consistent throughout the years from the civil rights movement to gay rights to healthcare reform. He started as a mayor in Vermont, worked his way up to house of reps, and is now the senator of Vermont. Compared to the other candidates I believe Sanders is most qualified.” Everything about Bernie Sanders was cut out and only a sentence was put in.
This is proof that the media wants Sanders to fall and proof that they wanna sensationalize Trump. News outlets were calling us an angry mob. We’re just fed up with everything. We’re fed up with this shit country and were fed up with Trumps bullshit.
On a side note, the topics that came up during the protest were sexism, racism, empowerment, immigration, black lives matter, love, and chanting.
TL;dr: I protested Trump and I was interviewed by the AP. The protest was peaceful despite media calling us angry and the AP skewed my interview and cut everything I said about Bernie Sanders out.
