Petition Calls To Rename Fifth Avenue In Front Of Trump Tower: “President Barack H. Obama Avenue”

Almost 17,000 people have signed a petition in New York City to rename the street in front of Trump Tower after former Barack Hussein Obama II.

A MoveOn petition is gaining traction over the weekend would rename the stretch of Fifth Avenue between 56th and 57th streets to be “President Barack H. Obama Avenue.”

The petition would force President Trump to change the address of his Trump Tower building, where Donald Trump 2020 presidential campaign will be headquartered on the 15th floor, said The Hill.

As of Sunday afternoon, the petition had approximately 16,878 signatures, a 390% jump in signatures since Friday morning.

“We request the New York City Mayor and City Council do the same by renaming a block of Fifth Avenue after the former president who saved our nation from the Great Recession, achieved too many other accomplishments to list, and whose two terms in office were completely scandal-free,” the petition states.

A stretch of highway in  Los Angeles was recently renamed after the former commander in chief.

“The City of Los Angeles recently honored former President Barack Obama by renaming a stretch of the 134 Freeway near Downtown LA in his honor,” the petition notes.

For the roadway to be renamed, the New York City Council would have to approve the bill and Mayor Bill de Blasio would have to sign off on it.

Last month, the council voted to name a city street after the hip-hop group Wu-Tang Clan.

According to NPR News, the council voted 48-0 during its last meeting of 2018 to co-name the street and several more after the group and other notable musicians, such as Notorious B.I.G. (born Christopher Wallace), Woody Guthrie and poet Audre Lorde.

The move to rename the street in front of Trump Tower seems very far-fetched, but with the council on a tear renaming streets after legendary hip-hop stars, it would not shock us if Trump Tower one day is sitting on “President Barack H. Obama Avenue.”

  1. The “former Commander-in-Chief” was never constitutionally eligible to be president! One must be a “natural born citizen”, someone born on U.S. soil to a citizen FATHER and a citizen mother. He could have been born in the White House and still wouldn’t have been eligible, simply because his Kenyan, British subject father was NOT a U.S. citizen. He wasn’t even a legal resident of the U.S. He was just a foreign student, here on a student visa, attending college. It is what you are born with that counts. ALL three, place of birth, citizenship of the father and citizenship of the mother is what makes someone a natural born citizen, if all three are of the U.S., owing allegiance to no other nation. If even one of those things is missing, you are NOT a natural born citizen. Only two offices require a natural born citizen, the presidency and vice presidency. All other offices simply require a citizen, even if naturalized citizens.

  2. How about “The Old Dirt Road” or the “Hershey Highway” or “Fudge Packer Parkway” in
    honor of Obama’s salutes to SODOMY and its perverted siblings like: “rimming”; “fisting”;
    “bare backing”; “bug chasing”; “taking the express”; ‘tossing the salad”; “pegging”; “crisco
    parties”; “felching” and a menagerie of other vulgar, repulsive and dehumanized acts and
    behaviors – all of which are ALWAYS fruitless and often fatal.

  3. I’m so tired of the left playing a game of “Dumb and Dumber!” Placing dubious and often empty-headed meat puppets into government positions. Dirty tricks and such seem to be the way of the times. Trump may “speak from the hip”, but I actually PREFER THIS…over the babblings coming from a long term (and now short term as well) politician…that really NEVER answers one’s questions. They go round and round, designed in a way that uses plenty of $20 words, but arriving at an unintelligible spin of rhetoric. They give notoriety to their candidates with undeserved awards. Many have ZERO accomplishments, so bias media is tasked with creating a silk purse from a sow’s ear. We couldn’t get any tangible learning of the last president’s past…as it was sealed from our view. WE “supposedly” hire presidents, but we’re not privy to WHAT we are really getting. Changing names of buildings, roads, parks, etc, is actually fairly costly! At a time when our country’s debt is deep into the trillions, do we really NEED to make changes such as this and other boondoggles. Let’s face it…THIS is just another “game” being played by the left to poke at Trump. It’s NOT FUNNY to see our tax dollars used in a costly GAME. Bad enough that we fund other countries that HATE US, along with all the other tax-draining ideas.
    For those who think a wall would be frivolous, be sure to leave your doors unlocked, windows and gates open and keys in your cars. After all…it’s YOU that want the waves of illegals coming in, so give them a spot at YOUR house. Sorry…but the rest of us are full up.
