West Hollywood votes to remove Trump's star from Walk of Fame

"Because of this, we have never removed a star from the Walk", Walk of Fame president Leron Gubler said in 2015 when asked about Cosby's star.

Trump's star has been on the famous street since 2007, when Trump was honored for his work on Miss Universe pageants and NBC's long-running business competition show "The Apprentice". The chamber will now refer the resolution to their executive board. The Trump deranged vandal was charged Monday, as coincidence would have it, with one count of criminal vandalism by the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office.

Now, the West Hollywood City Council has passed a resolution asking the city of Los Angeles to remove Trump's star permanently.

The MAGA heads weighed in on the City Council's proposal immediately of course, professing their undying support for the president.

West Hollywood Mayor John Duran confirmed news of the vote on Twitter. Trump's star was destroyed Wednesday morning by a man with a pick ax, the second time in less than two years the star was vandalized.

Liberal hand-wringers pointed out that the resolution said nothing about Bill Cosby, Kevin Spacey and others accused of abusive sexual behavior whose stars remain intact. The star has also been spray-painted with swastikas, had a miniature wall erected around it and was once covered with #IResist stickers.

"As of now, there are no plans to remove any stars from the Hollywood Walk of Fame", he said.

Now I guess we wait to see if the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce takes the bait and removes the star.

The most recent incident happened last month when a man took an ax to it. "Because of this, we have never removed a star from the walk".

Hamill suggested Monday that the destroyed star for President Donald Trump be replaced with one for his fellow Star Wars actor and friend Carrie Fisher.

However, the outlet did say she would be up for recognition in 2021: three years from now, and five years since her death in 2016.
