The West Hollywood city council voted unanimously last night to remove President Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The decision comes after the star has been damaged several times, however that is not the reason cited in the resolution. Those behind the resolution say it’s because of Trump’s quote, “disturbing treatment of women and other actions.’ President Trump received his star in 2007. The vote is a first, as the city of L.A. has never removed a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, even after calls to remove Bill Cosby’s star in 2015. Back then, the President and Chief Executive of the Chamber told the LA Times, “Once a star has been added to the walk, it is considered a part of the historic fabric of the Hollywood Walk of Fame… because of this, we have never removed a star from the walk.”

The vote in one of the country’s more liberal cities comes as the latest Rasmussen poll has Trump’s approval rating at 50 percent.
