There were about 20 people in line outside the Bayville Fire House waiting to get inside from out of the rain to listen to Congressman Tom MacArthur, joined by Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and First Nepotistic Daughter Ivanka Trump, talking about tax policy. And there were at least four times as many people standing in the rain outside protesting the Trump/MacArthur reverse Robin Hood tax code.
The indoor event was by invitation only and no Democrats were allowed into the taxpayer-funded venue. But neither that nor the rain stopped activists from protesting the draconian changes being proposed by the Trump administration.
The first video below contains comments from the activists. How many can you recognize?
In the second video, below, a young mother clutching her child, talks about being shut out of the venue.
