Kremlin Annex protesters stick it to Trump for concealment of USS John McCain during his visit to Japan

Amid the news of Trump's deadly racism on the border and the growing chorus of calls for impeachment over obstruction of justice, a new issue has arisen. When Trump visited Japan, someone ensured the US Navy's USS John McCain was kept out of sight as it is named for one of his political enemies. This is the behavior of a stereotypical tin-pot dictator. On the last day of May, protesters showed up with a mock version of the destroyer in front of the White House hoping to torpedo Trump's reputation. During this a 100 year old WWII veteran stopped by the protest.
