From Queer Dance Party for Climate Justice at Ivanka Trump’s House!

It’s time to WERK for Mother Earth.

Last Tuesday, the Trump administration passed an Executive Order rolling back environmental regulations and slashed funding to the EPA, essentially halting the Federal progress the US has made in slowing the pace of climate change and on promoting clean energy.

In response, get ready to shake what your Mamma Earth gave ya and WERK it for climate justice! Thankfully, Ivanka Trump, “BFF of the gays,” supposed climate czar, and brand new employee of the Trump Administration has invited us to come and party in her neighborhood, leaving behind biodegradable glitter that will sparkle in the moonlight. It turns out Rex Tillerson, former CEO of Exxon, Sec. of State and Putin’s BFF, lives right next door!

    My gawd, millennials are precious.

    • PetworthGuy

      these are mostly Gen-Xers not Millennials

      • Effie

        These were not Gen-Xers, as most of them were asleep…. this was mainly attended by millennials.

        • L

          Asleep at 8pm? This event started at 6pm. The group left the Kalorama neighborhood by 9pm.

  • stacksp

    Yeah, I do not know about this. I can’t co-sign this.

  • CapitalDame

    This is the reason I’m surprised they chose that home. There were other options available that were more private, off the street. I have to assume the protests will continue and at some point they (and their children) will be home during one.

    • MadMax

      I doubt the SS would allow that to happen. This family’s protection budget is through the roof.

  • Anon X

    I hope they got the catharsis they were seeking… nothing much else was going to be accomplished…

  • lemeow85

    Not sure what they’re trying to accomplish. Ivanka supports gay rights.

    • Reality

      Clearly written in the article title, this rally was for Climate Justice.

      • crispy

        There’s nothing “clearly written” about this event. Mission creep at its worst.

  • Reality

    I got caught in the traffic jam on Connecticut Ave but didn’t mind at all. The group looked fun and I’m glad people are protesting. Ivanka is a paid White House Senior Advisor now. Hold her feet to the flames, just like all Obama White House officials were.

    • Anon

      “Hold her feet to the flames, just like all Obama White House officials were.”
      .
      Huh? Please provide link to this kind of “protesting” in front of Obama’s family members’ or official’s private residences. Maybe it happened — if it did, I’m sure the WaPo roundly condemned it.

    • Anon

      Anti-Obama groups didn’t dance and throw glitter in residential neighborhoods. They won elections.

    • anon

      Actually, she’s not accepting a salary.

    • anoNE

      No, Ivanka is a special assistant. In this administration, senior advisor titles are given to men only (like her husband).

  • DM

    What a completely muddled mess. What does being gay have to do with climate change? What the hell kind of stupid non-concept is “climate justice”? What does Ivanka, as opposed to other members of the Administration, have to do with any of this? How does throwing glitter at her house lead to progress on climate change?

    • dcd

      Maybe it was bio-degradable glitter?
      .
      Never mind, +1 to everything you said.

  • anon

    So what exactly did this accomplish other than upsetting the neighbors who were home such as the elderly man that was trying to sleep and got yelled at by the protestors when he asked them to quiet down?

    • logandude

      Eh, that comes with living in DC. I have to deal with all the stupid motorcades and helicopter buzzings downtown.

    • L

      I was there, and that man you speak of was the only upset person. Many neighbors came outside to join in on the fun.

  • L

    Wow, I’m disappointed to see so many haters here. To be expected from trolls, but from DC residents? Give it a rest. I was at this event, and it was great. It’s more important now than ever to support our communities, and to SPEAK UP. A little peaceful protest never hurt anyone.
