Protesters try to drown out Trump speech, yell at Sen. Paul
“I hope you hear us, Trump,” the leader of the popular local band TOB shouted Thursday night near the site of Trump's speech. One protester held up a sign, “Nightmare on Pennsylvania Avenue” — the street where the White House is located. Paul later tweeted that he had been “attacked” by a “crazed mob” a block from the White House. Lafayette Park, a traditional site of demonstrations across from the White House, was sealed off and there were some street closures. A longtime D.C. signature sound, Go-Go music emerged last year as a battle anthem for activists fighting fast-moving gentrification in the nation’s capital.
