Trump Tower in Chicago will be the site of the oddest yet straight-to-the-point protest yet against the new president — the event is called “Operation Kiss Our Asses, Release Your Taxes!”
Organized by the satirical news comedy “S#!tshow,” the event will have protestors pulling their pants down in front of the Donald Trump-owned Chicago building on Feb. 12, aiming to pressure him into releasing his tax returns.
“In 2006, a Maryland state circuit court determined that mooning is a form of artistic expression protected by the First Amendment as a form of speech,” the event page says. “Donald Trump doesn’t think the American people want to see his tax returns, so let’s show him that we do in the classiest way possible!”
As of Saturday, more than 700 people have responded to the event, saying they plan to attend the protest.
Throughout the presidential campaign, Trump stubbornly refused to release his tax returns as every major party candidate has done in the past. Prior to the election, Trump falsely claimed he could not release the documents due to an IRS audit, but he has since changed his excuse saying that the public simply doesn’t care.
However, even after his inauguration last month, public pressure on Trump to release the documents has not died down, with some calling for protests to take place on April 15, Tax Day in the U.S.
