“They can use my office. They can use any office in this building.”
Famous last words, Marty Walsh.
In a parody video released Sunday during the St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast, the Boston mayor’s office became a shelter for those threatened by President Donald Trump’s policies (and tweets).
The video showed a parade of women, scientists, judges, and Revolution-era patriots arriving to City Hall in streams, subsequently crowding the floors of the mayor’s office. The mayor put some of the hat-wearing patriots to use on the city’s 311 line, too.
An aproned Walsh even cooks breakfast for pink-hatted protesters in the office kitchen: “How do you like your eggs?”
The video comes after Walsh’s defiant repudiation of Trump’s executive orders on immigration earlier this year. He offered “City Hall itself as a last resort,” in response to Trump’s orders to crack down on undocumented immigrants and sanctuary cities.
Despite the influx of guests in Sunday’s parody, Walsh didn’t waver on that pledge.
“For as long as it’s needed,” he said in the video. “For as long as it takes.”
