Truck Fump

I was in my office yesterday trying to get a few things done on a hot Sunday afternoon when the power went off. I tried to scam an ice cream out of the deli across the street half price before it melted but they were having none of it. So I decided to go home.

I drove around the woman's club, past the old market that has been closed down for a year or two and saw this fresh graffiti on the window. Fuck Trump, Panic writes.

It is unusual for the local street gangs, which happen to be latino, to get political, in fact this is the first instance I can ever recall.

But logically I have to think that it only reinforces Trump's message to engage in this kind of behavior.

Taking your ire out by spray painting somebody else's property is like dogs pissing on hydrants and bushes and marking their turf. Not apt to win you a lot of converts to your cause, no matter what kind of asshole Trump may or may not be.

I noticed the same thing! And commented to people at work that it is unusual for dudes like Panic to voice their opinion on politics. Ironic that the gold paint stirs up memories of the Trump Towers color palette.
