DENVER (CBS4) – People across the nation protested President Donald Trump this President’s Day, including hundreds in Denver.

The rallies were called Not My President’s Day protests.

Thirteen people were arrested in Portland, Oregon — most for ignoring orders to stop blocking traffic.

Hundreds of demonstrators gathered in downtown Chicago to protest Trump’s policies. They marched across the river from Trump Tower for the second day in a row.

Denver has not been excluded from the protests — in fact some have been very aggressive. On Monday several hundred protesters took to the streets and shut down the 16th Street Mall and the surrounding streets off and on for about two hours.

“All the drama; it’s not a reality TV show. Drama doesn’t belong in government,” a protester told CBS4’s Stan Bush.

“I would love if he (Trump) would hear us. He hasn’t yet, but you know, there’s hope,” another protester said.

There were no arrests in Denver and limited disruptions to downtown businesses.

  1. Dear CBS News 4: Let’s assume that 900 people attended that demonstration. (According to your report, attendance was in the hundreds. And let’s face it, 900 is most likely a significant overstatement). According to Bing, the 2016 population of Denver was 634,000. My calculator says that the percentage of the Denver population attending this rally (again, assuming the overstated number of 900 in attendance) was 0.0141955835% of Denver’s population. AND THIS IS NEWS???? Something that only affects 0.0141955835% of Denver population. Really guys – your liberal bias is embarrassing to you. And you wonder why most folks who have ANY understanding of current events NEVER believes the Mainstream Media. Congratulations!! You have once again confirmed that your news is biased in the extreme and cannot be trusted!! How much longer will you prove yourselves to be non-relevant??

  2. Guess what, 64 million people say, “HE’S MY PRESIDENT!!” And we are damned proud of it!! Why don’t you people find supportive helpful things to do instead of always causing an uproar?
