Victoria Jayne Bay is that lovely blue-haired creature you see above. She is also fiercely anti-Trump and isn’t afraid to take out a few buildings to show it. You may be asking yourself, “What the hell did the Los Angeles Hall of Justice, Hall of Records, Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center and the county’s Central Heating and Refrigeration Plant” have to do with a Donald Trump election victory?”
Good question. We’re doubtful Bay knows the answer herself, but it didn’t stop her from spray-painting obscene messages all over each of these institutions under the watchful eye of surveillance cameras.

To be fair, this may not be her resting maniac face. Police said she had an open container on her person when they arrested her. But at 37, you should probably know better than to think spray-paint ever did anything to make a difference in the outcome of an election. Now, according to the L.A. Times, she is being held in jail with a $10,000 bail set. Damages inflicted were approximately $9,000, so tit-for-tat.
While it is understandable why one would want to protest the outcome of any election, think about the insanity here. The state of California went for Hillary Clinton by around 70 percent of the vote. Any damages inflicted on a building within the state only does harm to the taxpayers, who didn’t want a Trump Presidency to begin with. It also fuels the fire of the 30 percent who did vote for Trump. They look at it as money well spent, since we’ve become a society that likes to bathe in the tears of our opponents. Crazy to this level, in other words, hurts your side way more than it hurts the minority who helped to get him elected.
But that’s where we are in society. The question that remains — will we ever have another Presidential election without some mass of nut-jobs coming out to do random things that make no sense whatsoever in protest with no regard to the legitimacy of what they’re protesting? We’re gonna go with a big fat “no” on that one. In the meantime, props to Bay for not toning down any of the batshit crazy on that mugshot expression.
