Weho to Trump: Bye Felicia!

In a week of bad news for presidential hopeful Donald Trump (read: good news for everybody else, everywhere), the Mayor of West Hollywood had some very clear words for the candidate as he gears up to campaign in California, a decisive state with many delegate votes.

In an open letter to Trump, Mayor Lindsey Horvath wrote, "With the primary making its way to California, as West Hollywood's Mayor, I want to make very clear that your campaign of violence and intimidation is not welcome in our City."

Citing the LGBTQ community in Weho as one of the many "diverse constituencies, of which we are most proud," Horvath continued, "We know firsthand how charged language can incite dangerous activity that puts our residents and neighborhoods at risk--and at great cost. While we must always make room for free speech and reasonable--even passionate--debate, your reckless rhetoric is wrong at every level."

Mayor Horvath explains her decision to write the letter--and incites the mayors of the 87 other cities within Los Angeles County to do the same--in an insightful op-ed for the Advocate.

Even though things are still too close to call on the Republican front in California, this Los Angeles-based representative isn't interested in Trump's unruly campaign efforts in the slightest.
