"Because of this, we have never removed a star from the Walk". I'm an excellent tourist.
"To maintain a level sidewalk", the television personality and Fox News stalwart Gerald Rivera tweeted acidly, "I assume all the other stars displayed will now be given the same character reviews and background checks to determine if their stars too deserve mutilation and banishment".
On Monday night, councillors voted "unanimously" to pass a resolution to remove the USA president's star, according to a tweet from West Hollywood Mayor John Duran.
Mayor John Duran said the vote was symbolic. The decision was unanimous, on the grounds that Trump has made transgressions toward minorities - particularly women and immigrants.
I wonder where this concern about decency was, though, as Hollywood built the NY business tycoon into a celebrity with a very well-known reputation for less than stellar personal behavior. They loved him when he was a Democrat and bringing in big ratings and revenue for the networks.
The initiative by the city council of West Hollywood comes less than two weeks after the star was vandalized by a man with a pickax. At one point, Duran had to remind those in the audience to have a civilized debate, even though todays politics may "seem uncivilized".
A committee considers nominations once a year for celebrities to be added to the Walk of Fame, and now charges the nominee's sponsor $40,000 for the honour.
Donald Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame keeps getting destroyed so Mark Hamill has come up with a great solution to the problem: replace it with a star for Carrie Fisher. Though Clay had left the area by the time the police got to the area, he later turned himself in at the Beverly Hills police quarters.
Sure. This all sounds perfectly normal.
The president received a star on the Walk of Fame in 2007 for his work as producer of the Miss Universe Pageant. Clay vandalized the star around 3:30 a.m. on July 25th. His bail has been set at $20,000, which original vandal James Otis has offered to pay.
The vote follows recurring bouts of vandalism of Mr Trump's star, which have been expensive to fix. Plus, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has refused past efforts to remove the stars of disgraced actors including Bill Cosby and Kevin Spacey.
