The Tarot Society Los Angeles arrived and performed The Invocations of The Rites of Babalon, an Ophidian Thelemic Ritual.
Poop, emoji poop.
Thumbs up for 45!
21 seconds earlier a woman was on the ground offering double middle fingers to the Trump Star. Now 21 seconds later this person uses both hands to show her love for 45.
This woman came to take a thumbs up selfie with the Trump Star. In taking the picture, she noticed the star was soiled and dirty. So she got out some wipes and cleaned the star.
The moment was small.
And profoundly moving.
You don’t need a deep linguistic analysis on why it is Women’s Work. You only need to notice that, most often, it is women who do it.
In the year 33 Mary of Bethany wept. Her tears fell on Christ’s feet. And she washed his feet with perfume and dried them with her hair.
A-thousand-nine-hundred-and-forty years later, Mierle Laderman Ukeles washed the steps of the Wadsworth Atheneum, an art museum in Hartford, Connecticut. And another forty-four years after that, I watched a woman on her knees cleaning the sidewalk. Washing the 45th president-of-the-United-States’ Star on Hollywood Boulevard.
This week President Trump refused to call The Persian Gulf, “The Persian Gulf.” Instead choosing to call it “The Arabian Gulf.” Like everything else he does, it became a national news story.
When this group of people – Los Angelenos of Iranian descent, I’d guess – saw the Trump Star they took out a sharpie and made signs protesting the slight. They came back a little while later with scotch tape so their signs wouldn’t blow away so quickly.
Since they had no access to the “real” President Trump to protest, they instead plead their case to the Donald Trump impersonator who was at The Star.
It’s Donald Trump!
The fake president meets the real president?
Love The President!
We are not fans.
