Trump's comments prompt protest in Highlands

Trump comments on women prompt local protest

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Ahead of Sunday night’s debate, locals gathered for a rally protesting Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s crude comments he made about women in a 2005 video.

Organizers say Trump’s sexually explicit comments were so disturbing, they had to speak out.

More than 100 people showed up for the nonpartisan event held at the corner of Bardstown Road and Eastern Parkway in the Highlands.

“I want to stand in solidarity with my friends. One – to say no, we don’t want this kind of behavior. We don’t want that,” Tom Armstrong said.

“It’s nonpartisan. I think it’s important because I think that you don’t have to be non-Republican to say that the behavior of the Republican candidate is really bad and not representative hopefully of what most of our country’s values are,” Jenn Bowers said.

The protest ended with everyone marching down Bardstown Road to Hillary Clinton’s Louisville campaign headquarters.
