It appears that anti-Trump progressives have cornered the market on wasting time and energy.
If those who hate President Donald Trump have a favorite board game, it’s probably Trivial Pursuit. But then, anybody who wants Trump removed from office isn’t in the business of rationalizing shameless behavior.
The punch line? As of early Wednesday afternoon, more than 100,000 signatures had been tallied on MoveOn.org.
As The Hill reported, that segment of Fifth Avenue would be called 725 President Barack H. Obama Avenue.
If the petition is successful, the Manhattan Trump Tower will have a new address: 725 President Barack H. Obama Avenue, New York, NY 10022. https://t.co/u1Po6ypNtC

At least one Twitter user called out those who support the online initiative.
Sounds about right, liberals have no direction except to start hate and dissention. They can’t ever get alone with the people that built something positive. Every big city was built by conservatives and stolen by liberals then destroyed and abandoned.

Too bad, for the progressives’ sake, there’s a major roadblock that may prevent those Manhattan liberals from taking it to the streets.
To co-name a thoroughfare, the petition must meet the following criteria, according to Newsweek: “The honoree in question should be deceased for at least two years prior to the petition.”
Apparently that won’t stop the initiative’s creator, Elizabeth Rowin.
She told Newsweek that such laws “are arbitrary and can be worked around.”
Rowin and those signing her petition would know all about “arbitrary.”
Clearly, there’s no special capacity needed when it comes to being unproductive and acting on a whim.
The left’s latest endeavor smacks of a “We’re putting Trump in his place!” smugness that figures to backfire on those involved rather than emasculate our president.
If this is the petitioners’ idea of “hope and change,” they can put their hope in one hand and some change in the other — then see which one fills up first.
