On Monday, the Washington Examiner reported that a young woman who stopped to clean Donald Trump’s Hollywood “Walk of Fame” star, said she was “blown away” by the amount of disrespect she received from online hatemongers.
“I think that we should have more respect from both sides of the aisle, and I was blown away by how much disrespect that I got, how rude people were to me, for a simple act of cleaning up our president, who is the highest office of the land,” MaKenna Greenwald said during an interview on Fox News Monday. “He should be respected, whether it’s his Hollywood star or just talking about him in public.”

Here’s just a few examples of the disrespect she received:
i just want to let you know that YOUR president also instituted a ban that separates families away from each other

I was treated for cancer in America with little kids terrified of losing their healthcare because of Trump. Your respect isnt moral or fair.

My president doesn't have a Hollywood star and I'm pretty sure his name is spelled B.A.R.A.C.K O.B.A.M.A

According to Greenwald, Trump’s star was covered with Sharpie scribbles and expletives and she cleaned it up with a makeup wipe from her purse, the Examiner said.
“My friends and I were walking down the Hollywood Boulevard as tourists basically, and as we walked by and saw it I just stopped and thought that I should clean it up,” she told Fox. “I was surprised that somebody hadn’t done it before, but I guess that this happens a lot.”
Yes, it does. The Examiner added:
Sean Hannity and Eric Trump took to Twitter to praise MaKenna’s actions. Hannity tweeted, “Wow. Great American. @CNN @NBCNews @JoeNBC (who called the @POTUS a schmuck, liar, goon etc.). “Watch and learn what respect for the office is” and Eric Trump tweeted “Thank you MaKenna! #MakeAmericaGreatAgain.”
The post, which got more than 51,000 retweets and more than 200,000 likes, also received backlash.
“Keep in mind YOUR president wants to see millions of Americans die with this proposed healthcare bill,” one tweet read on Fox said.
Quite a few, including Eric Trump and Sean Hannity, thanked her for cleaning the star.

According to the LA Times, the star was covered with stickers during a so-called “Pride” march, which evolved into an anti-Trump event.

The Hill noted:
Stickers with phrases like “#I Resist Homophobia” and “#I Resist Racism” cover Trump’s star. Another read “No! Drive Out Trump/Pence Fascist Regime.”
The Resist March in L.A. is taking place as Pride marches are held across the country.
“This was not the year for parades. This was the year to take to the streets and march,” a spokesman for the march’s planners told Reuters.
Greenwald’s random act of kindness prompted others to respond by cleaning other stars, using the same rationale of “nothing but respect for MY president,” said a post at laist.com.

Sorry, snowflakes, but Meryl Streep, Danny DeVito and Samuel L. Jackson haven’t been elected to the White House.
“Regardless of your political beliefs, there’s one thing we can agree on: respect for presidents comes from cleaning their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” the post said. Much to her credit, Greenwald said that even as a conservative, she would never disrespect a star for former President Obama the way Trump’s star has been.
