13-Feb-17 – Chanting “Hands too small, can’t build a wall,” about 50 to 100 protesters dropped trou along the Chicago River on Sunday afternoon and aimed their angst at Trump International Hotel & Tower.

Closer to 200 people watched the “mooning” of Trump Tower, organized by Columbia College student Bailey Austin Davis, including police officers from both the Loop and Near North police districts.

The goal of the event, according to Davis, who studies theatre directing, was to get President Donald Trump to publicly release his income tax returns.

“We want to see his taxes and we will bare our asses,” Davis told the crowd, encouraging them to tweet photos of their butts directly to Trump. “Today we shall stand together as one nation and say, ‘Hey, Mr. President, this is what our butt looks like.’”

Following a brief countdown, the protesters, standing on the south bank, bared bottoms for about a minute in the direction of Trump Tower on the other side of the river.

Monk dropped her pants, too, revealing to the crowd the words, drawn onto her buttocks, “YOU LOST.”
