W. Hollywood City Council Votes to Remove Trump’s Walk of Fame Star, Cites His ‘Disturbing’ Actions

The chief executive earned the honor in 2007 for his 'Apprentice' TV show, but leftists have destroyed it multiple times

President Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame has been a point of controversy ever since he announced he was moving from the private sector to public office.

It’s been destroyed multiple times and been the site of a handful of protests.

And now the West Hollywood City Council has recommended it be removed entirely.

A tweet from the mayor said the city council unanimously voted to remove the star.

“West Hollywood City council unanimously passes resolution asking the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove the Donald Trump star on Hollywood Walk of Fame,” wrote Mayor John Duran on Twitter on Monday.

Trump was originally awarded his star in 2007 for his work on “The Apprentice,” an unscripted competition television show that ran for 15 seasons.

The show would continue for another eight seasons as “The Celebrity Apprentice.” There was also a spinoff “Apprentice” series headed by Martha Stewart — which lasted for only one season.

When Trump’s star on the Walk of Fame needs to be removed because his critics can’t behave themselves and avoid the temptation to vandalize it — well, this truly shows the cultural divide in this country at this moment in time.

Exactly what point has destroying the star or even protesting the star made? Leftists will likely celebrate any potential removal of the star as a victory — but if this is the sort of victory leftists want, then they have a long way to go before they can engage in any kind of meaningful conversation about the direction of the country.
