Judge: New Orleans Can't Take Down Trump Quotes Mural

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans cannot make a landowner take down a mural of infamous quotes recorded when Donald Trump was on "Access Hollywood" in 2005 because the city's mural regulations violate freedom of speech, a federal judge ruled Tuesday.

Judge Martin Feldman ruled the day after he heard arguments about landowner Neal Morris' assertion that the regulations are unconstitutional and the city should be barred from enforcing them.

"It's a victory for the First Amendment and for artistic expression. The city had no business deciding what is and isn't art," said Bruce Hamilton, who represented Morris as an attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana.

In large capital letters with cartoons replacing four words, the mural painted on a fence transcribes part of the future president's recorded conversation, including a comment about a woman's breasts and his boast about grabbing women's genitals. It starts with, "I moved on her like a bitch," with a cartoon dog in place of the word.

1. The Only way to fix the mess America is in currently

Is to vote for Candidates that believe in the Constitution not the Communist Manifesto.

Catering to whining sniveling SnowFlakes because “I’m offended”

That’s no way to run things

The Next Civil War has begun, time to choose which side you’re on
