Will Trump’s Hollywood Star Be Replaced?

Will Trump's Hollywood Star Be Replaced?

[Updated] The West Hollywood City Council unanimously passed a resolution to permanently remove Donald Trump’s Walk of Fame star. In practice, the action would be complicated. The Walk of Fame is a project of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, and the sidewalk paving is the purview of the City of Los Angeles. Mr. Trump gained his star in his role as producer of the Miss Universe telecast since they don’t give them to reality TV celebrities or authoritarian rulers.

The pavement marker in question was substantially vandalized in 2016 and again this year, but the West Hollywood resolution is based on sexist and racist Trump political policies not in keeping with WeHo neighborhood values. So whose star should replace Donald Trump’s? Well, recently West Hollywood presented the keys to the city to film star Stormy Daniels. ‘Nuff said.
