If you are not a fan of the Trump administration, there are real things you can do to affect change.
You can vote. You can work with your local lawmakers. You can even sign a petition or three, if that’s your thing.
And yet, you almost never see or hear about crazed far-leftists doing anything productive to actually try to combat the administration they loathe so much.
Instead, they resort to things like petty vandalism and name-calling. You know, unproductive things.
Take, for example, Austin Clay. He garnered his 15 minutes of notoriety by taking a pickaxe to President Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in July.
Clay gloated about the ordeal when he gave a quick interview with TMZ.
“I think I did, like, a real good act,” Clay said. “Personally, I don’t feel resentful. I feel proud of myself.”
That interview was given in late July. Today, however, TMZ learned that Clay has been slapped with one count of felony vandalism for what he did to Trump’s star.
If convicted, Clay could spend up to three years in county jail. If his July interview is anything to go by, it doesn’t sound like Clay will have any remorse.
“I just felt really passionate because of what happened with the immigrants and him (Trump) stripping children away from their parents,” Clay said. “And that just sort of set me off.”
Clay then proceeded to insult all of the people who helped elect Trump into office.
“I think Donald Trump represents everything that everybody with half a brain and half a heart in this country resents,” Clay noted.
For what it’s worth, Clay claimed to have gotten some verbal support from the far-leftists in Hollywood.
“Robert De Niro left me a voice message,” Clay claimed. “He wanted to say … he wanted to give me a high-five. Chelsea Handler (who wanted to know if he was single), Mark Hamill.”
So just to recap, Clay committed a felony to try and send a message to Trump. In reality, his actions will have no literal impact or change on the Trump administration.
He did, however, get to hobnob with some leftists in Hollywood. But it all came at the expense of spending up to three years in jail.
I hope it was worth it, Clay. (Spoiler alert: If you’re convicted, it most certainly won’t be.)
