Kind of wish we could do the same thing to his entire presidency.

President Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was destroyed by a man with a pickax early Wednesday, according to Los Angeles police Officer Ray Brown.

Hollywood division officers responded to a call at 3:33 a.m. (6:33 a.m. ET) to the tourist area. Los Angeles police said a man is in custody and is being questioned. Police said a man turned himself in Wednesday morning at the Beverly Hills Police Department.
I imagine there was likely a long line of people offering to bail him out.
This is not the first time the star has been targetted:
Trump’s star has repeatedly been the target of vandalism and protests since the reality TV star’s turn to politics. In April 2016, a Superman impersonator on Hollywood Boulevard said he had seen visitors make obscene gestures next to the star, deface it with paint and allow a dog to relieve itself on the landmark.
“People often stomp with anger on the star, others kick their heels over the star, and some spit. The last time, someone put a sticker over the star,” Francisco Javier, another street performer who was dressed like Superman, said at the time.
A street artist constructed a tiny wall around Trump’s star in July 2016, and that October Los Angeles police arrested a man who they said vandalized the star with a sledgehammer and a pickax.
I am not typically a fan of vandalism, but I imagine that it must feel very cathartic to do something like this.
And it sure beats a number of possible alternatives.
