Trump Fans Protest West Hollywood Mayor’s ‘Ban’ on The Donald

Several dozen demonstrators gathered outside the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station on Thursday evening to protest Mayor Lindsey Horvath’s attempt to ban Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump from speaking in town. Horvath argued on CNN earlier this week that Trump’s political speech is “hate speech,” not constitutionally protected free speech. She also defended her instructions to city staff to refuse issuing events permits to the Trump campaign, saying that it was well within her right to do so in the name of “diversity.” On Thursday, about fifty demonstrators — including many from the large local LGBT community rejected Horvath’s stance as a violation of the First Amendment freedoms of speech and assembly.
