More than 900 people have RSVP'd to a Facebook event called "Chicago Moons the Trump Tower," with another 3,000 others expressing interest. The event is organized by Chicago-based comedy group, S#!TSHOW, which regularly posts satirical and irreverent political videos to their Facebook page, like this coverage of Trump's inauguration:
Bailey Davis, an organizer of the event, explained "Certain things get people on their feet. Not everybody is going to watch 60 Minutes because they think it’s boring. If you ridicule [Trump] or make him feel like he’s the loser, that’s how he blows up. That’s what makes The Donald implode."
