Supporters & Protesters at Trump Rally



On Friday (3.04) night, Donald Trump bought the circus to the Lakefront Airport. The rally was described as one of the rowdiest of the campaign. Outside the hangar, protesters were out in force. Inside the event, the sound was off and constant ejections interrupted the stump speech. At one point, a man holding a "K.K.K. 4 Trump" was even thrown out. Timothy Parris was on the scene to capture it all.


Lafayette Square Protesters Bash "JindalCare"


by Stacy Coco 

Protesters rallied around Lafayette Square today to enroll passers-by into the “JindalCare” health care system-the satirical version of Governor Bobby Jindal’s health plan. In 2013, Jindal opted out of $16 million in federal Medicaid money and exchanges in protest of the Affordable Care Act. According to the protesters’ slogans, an estimated 242,000 Louisianians are being denied benefits because of Jindal’s stance.
