    I am so impressed with the Protesters from Code Pink at the RNC. I was astonished to watch how the Republican Faithful reacted to a Code Pink Protester with a sign saying, “No Racism No Hate”.
    The Republicans covered her up with a Flag and attempted to pull her banner away. YEAH! I guess the Republicans found the banner offensive and obscene. What a sad group of misguided and brainwashed Chumps for Trump.
