Anti-Trump Protests Crash Houston During Super Bowl Weekend (VIDEO, PHOTOS)
Doesn’t the Left get tired of protesting all of the time?
One would think the country could unite and enjoy America’s most favorite past time- watching the Superbowl. But alas, protesters took to Houston denouncing President Trump.
Anti-Trump protesters gathered in front of NGR Stadium.

Anti-Trumpers not only protested in front of the stadium, but also occupied Hermann Park.
At noon, about 500 people gathered for a march starting at Hermann Park. They broke into a loud chant, bellowing: “Hey, hey, ho, ho, Donald Trump has got to go.”
Less than 30 feet away, 15 police officers on horseback were lined up, and a helicopter circled. The groups participating in the march that was scheduled to follow a two-mile route to the stadium included Black Lives Matter, the local Democratic party, the ACLU and the communist party, among others.
Among the protesters was Jane McEldowney, 62, a lawyer and licensed mental health professional from Houston. She said she began joining protests shortly after the presidential election in November.
Protesters held up signs that said things like “Resist”. How original?!
