Barely done with taking over inauguration protests and women’s marches, the usual array of Hollywood celebrities — including a few surprises — are already planning their next anti-Donald Trump protest.
The next proposed Trump protest is a march in Washington, D.C., on April 15. The goal is to force the president to release his tax returns — something likely not on the minds of the vast majority of American voters right now. Trump was elected without releasing them in the first place and the country has long moved on.

Celebrities promising to attend so far include the usual suspects, like lefty filmmaker Michael Moore and comedian Patton Oswalt. However, with loudmouths such as Rosie O’Donnell already talking impeachment through their Twitter accounts, many more celebrities are sure to pile on.
“Dear #WomensMarch organizers: please organize a #TrumpTaxesMarch for April 15th. I am happy to help. We all are,” tweeted Oswalt.
Moore — seeing another opportunity to be in the spotlight — immediately responded, “I’m in! Everybody else? Let’s do this! Nonstop protest until his early removal from the White House. #TrumpTaxesMarch.”

It should be established at this point that Moore is little more than an opportunist. He sat silently on the sidelines while Obama served for eight years. Despite the former president’s actions and policies that a young Moore would have balked at and grabbed a camera to fight, he remained quiet publicly.
Now, with Donald Trump’s election to the presidency, Moore has found a platform to relaunch a career with almost no credibility left. Protests like these are merely career opportunities for people like Moore. They are a chance to push forward a personal agenda and grab the spotlight.

Celebrities hogged the attention of the Women’s March in Washington, D.C., and spread divisive and political dialogue with people like Madonna saying she “thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.” Moore also ripped a paper that declared Trump as president while standing on stage.
A #TrumpTaxesMarch will give celebrities another plumb opportunity to negatively affect our pop culture and political discourse. It will be another chance for them to use others to advance their own careers and hypocritical views. It will also just be another blatant reason they are out of touch with the voting populace.
As of this writing, there are Facebook pages for #TrumpTaxesMarch events in 15 cities, including D.C. and Los Angeles.
