The best signs we saw at last weekend’s anti-Trump protest

Now that the world is two weeks free of the U.S. election, let’s take stock. The losers: Hillary Clinton, the 64 million Americans who voted for her, and Donald Trump, who just recently found out the job’s a hell of a lot more work than he’d expected. The winners: late-night comedians, far-right politicos, and Bristol board manufacturers. Yes, the Donald’s victory has spawned some of the most creative, devastating and hilarious protest signs this side of Harambe. Case in point: the anti-Trump protest that took over downtown Toronto last Saturday. We made the rainy trek from City Hall to the Trump tower to see what Toronto’s Trump critics had to say (or hoist, at least).

First, a couple obligatory “Love not...” placards:

trumpsign10
These folks may not have the short, straightforward messaging that makes for a memorable sign, but they definitely get bonus points for detail:
trumpsign8
trumpsign
trumpsign4
And now for something a little more...to the point:
trumpsign14
A couple had a Canadian twist:
trumpsign17
trumpsign15
Some sign makers were legitimately horrified:
trumpsign11
trumpsign5
But many of the messages were hopeful, even poetic:
trumpsign13
trumpsign3
trumpsign9
And, in times of crisis, sometimes you just need to laugh:
trumpsign2
trumpsign16
