Has anyone in the NY #OWS or groups near large Trump properties considered a march or occupation in regards to The Donald?
Here is why Trump would be a target of protest -
1 - He lives the 1% lifestyle. He routinely uses political pull to get special sweetheart deals from governments while essentially doing little for the economy. In fact he has gone bankrupt before and somehow ended up holding all the money while investors are left holding the bag.
2 - He reacts like a 1%er. He is unable to grasp the concept that laws apply to him as well as us. Case in point, he routinely ignores building codes, and has even engaged in open harassment of those who don't bend to his will - http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/scotland/8555683/Donald-Trump-angers-neighbour-after-erecting-new-boundary-fence-and-then-billing-him.html
3 - He has adopted the 1%er mantra of "A lie told enough times becomes the truth." Regardless if you like him or not, Obama is a natural born citizen. Despite clear evidence of this, to this day Trump has tried to trot out the racist birther notion. Because the truth doesn't matter, what Trump thinks matters.
4 - Trump has tried to co-opt #OWS in the media. http://www.mediaite.com/tv/donald-trump-to-greta-van-susteren-i-cherish-the-well-dressed-wall-street-protesters/ That is not cool. Plus, he spreads the lie that most #OWS occupiers are really 1%ers. Fighting words Donny!
5 - Trump is a known hot head and media whore. Taking the fight to his door is a good way to get waning media exposure to kick back up. People will pay attention when Trump Towers or Trump Port-a-potties or whatever is marched on/occupied.
6 - The man is an all round douche canoe who hates the 99%. That should be enough.
