Protests & Rally's. Like most, within a few days, nobody will ever remember this happened. Andy warhol's 15 minutes of fame is alive and well.

BTW. It's odd how the Tech Community is trying to champion the illegals, but on the other hand moving forward with job-killing technology that effect primarily the illegals!

"Like most, within a few days, nobody will ever remember this happened."

Except Donny, who still remembers that the Woman's March completely outnumbered his inauguration the week before.

Sad!

Loser!

A bad say for Trump and his Russian connections.

Why on earth does Trump stand behind his Obama Tapp lie, when it just brings more attention to his campaign's connections to Russian intelligence agencies?

Dude is either playing 3d chess, or a complete idiot.

The Silicon Valley business model explained in 15 seconds:

1. Eliminate as many jobs as possible by developing and selling automation.
2. Export any jobs that can't be easily automated to corrupt low-wage nations.
3. Import workers from low-wage nations to suppress wages for all of the jobs that can't be exported.

Pretend it is all about inclusion and diversity. If anyone challenges the model, call them a "raciss".

15 minutes of fame... I'm sorry, were you referring to the 15 minutes of TrumpCare before it was shot down?
