Trump Was Greeted With An Unpleasant Surprise When He Arrived In Hawaii

Hawaii doesn’t like Donald Trump. The island state voted overwhelmingly against him in the last election, giving Hillary Clinton a 32% margin of victory over the Republican candidate. Trump doesn’t much care for the state that provided the legitimate birth certificate of his nemesis and predecessor, President Obama, that he kept nattering on about.

So when Trump stopped off in Hawaii on his way to a two-week Asian trip that many U.S. citizens hope he never returns from, sparks were sure to fly. Only about a hundred supporters greeted Trump when he arrived in Honolulu, but hundreds more were on hand to protest his very existence, including a large coterie of middle schoolers.

 

According to a report in The Los Angeles Times, protesters chanted against Trump’s travel ban, which has been repeatedly struck down by a Federal judge in Honolulu, and banged on drums while mocking Trump’s lunatic conspiracy theory assertion that Obama was born not in their state, but in Kenya.

Among the protesters was Hawaii State Representative Kaniela Ing, who had this to say:

“The idea of the aloha spirit is that we welcome everyone who comes here. But when there’s a leader whose whole M.O. seems to be making America a less welcoming place for whole groups of people, that’s where we need to draw the line. He’s simply not welcome.”


As one of the many signs that protesters held aloft said, “Aloha also means goodbye.” Many of the Hawaiian protestors were relieved when the President left the state to continue to the next stop on his trip, Japan, where he will be sure to embarrass our country on foreign soil for a change.
