70,000 people sign petition to rename Fifth Avenue outside Trump Tower after Obama

More than 70,000 people have signed onto a petition that seeks to rename the portion of Fifth Avenue in front of the Trump Tower in Manhattan after former President Obama.

“The City of Los Angeles recently honored former President Barack Obama by renaming a stretch of the 134 Freeway near Downtown L.A. in his honor,” reads the online petition, which had racked up nearly 71,000 signatures on MoveOn.org as of Tuesday afternoon.


“We request the New York City Mayor and City Council do the same by renaming a block of Fifth Avenue after the former president whose many accomplishments include: saving our nation from the Great Recession; serving two completely scandal-free terms in office; and taking out Osama bin Laden, the mastermind behind September 11th, which killed over 3,000 New Yorkers,” the petition continues.

...

If Rowin's petition proves successful, the Manhattan Trump Tower would have a new address: 725 President Barack H. Obama Avenue, New York, NY 10022.

2. 70k signatures on a MoveOn petition is worth as much

As used toilet paper or winning the popular vote in a presidential election.

5. So, in a city of over 8 million people, how

many didn’t sign? Quite a few I believe.

There’s a number of things I’d like to name after old Hopey Changey. We can start by changing ‘Wall Street’ to ‘Obama Boulevard’ considering the way he helped them fleece half the planet and then turned around and gave them bonuses at the taxpayers expense.

12. Well, if we are re-naming things by petition,

I'll bet I can get a hell of a lot more than 70,000 "signatures" to rename "The Big Apple" to "the Big Shithole".
