Sandy Coronilla reports for ABC10 that on Saturday, April Fool’s Day, a group of “a dozen or so” self-described witches gathered at noon in Balboa Park, San Diego, to put a hex or curse on President Trump.
They call the event “Fire the Fool San Diego!”.
Dressed up like witches with green face paint, the participants raised brooms above their heads and danced around a cauldron. They also marched through the park, chanting “Trump is a fool, Trump is a clown, we are here to shut him down.” One participant held up a sign that read, “I hex DT to protect America”; another wore a red “Make America Native Again” hat.
Participant Mary Lou Finley said, presumably referring to Trump, “It’s incredible that anyone could be so stupid as to do so many things that are hurtful to the American people.”
Note: I found, on Spokeo, a Mary L. Finley who lives in San Diego. She is 72 years old.
The event was organized by Ground Zero Players. Participants were required to attend a rehearsal and “witch curtain call.”
Ground Zero Players is a street theater group, est. 1987, in San Diego.
Why would witches need to be “organized” by a street theater group, much less attend a rehearsal for a supposedly spontaneous hex-gathering?
I call this bunk. This was a FAKE news of a FAKE protest by FAKE witches.
