This Man Protests Donald Trump Every Single Day And We Bow Down To His Unbending Commitment

One sign, six words, 365 days a year

74-year-old Gale McCray spends his retired days earning extra cash doing odd jobs and running errands, as well as protesting Trump for two hours every day.

He stands at a intersection in his hometown of Fort Worth in Texas holding his now infamous sign, 'Trump, that boy don't act right'.

According to Narrative, McCray was hardly political his entire life.

First working for 21 years as a mailman, then after a brief decline into addiction, he went back to get a degree and became a recreation therapist.

After nine years becoming increasingly politicised, Donald Trump's appointment as President made McCray take it more seriously,

After the election I was just amazed, I couldn't believe [Donald Trump] got elected. I remembered seeing a guy with a sign once shortly after Bush took us into Iraq. And he was a Middle Eastern guy. He had such resolve on his face, like he knew he wasn't going to change anything but that he had to get out there and do something. And that's kind of how I felt.

McCray calls himself 'just an old man with a sign' and sees his political views as simply based on kindness, human decency and common sense.

This is why he took umbrage with the travel ban which saw the Trump administration restrict travel from certain Muslin-majority countries.

The ban was heavily criticised and repealed soon after implementation.

McCray couldn't help but be outraged by the controversial move from the Trump administration,

I saw mothers and grandparents on the news getting separated from their families and I got kind of emotional thinking about it and thinking about my own family. There just wasn't any compassion as to how it was implemented. So, I don't know. It was all of that, really. I mean, this isn't the America that I know.

McCray is spotted often on his intersection and though he gets some abuse (around half of Texas voters went for Trump over Hillary Clinton and other candidates), plenty of people back his simple, humorous message.

McCray also posts his own photos on his Facebook page, and has taken to travelling around to different locations to protest, rather than just Fort Worth.

Whether or not your political views align with McCray, his lighthearted sign and daily dedication shows that it's never too late to get involved and that every little counts.
