Protesters again gather outside Issa's Vista office - San Diego Union-Tribune

Roughly 150 people gathered outside Rep. Darrel Issa’s Vista office on Tuesday, chanting and waving signs as part of a weekly nationwide protest targeting the policies of President Donald Trump.

Despite rain at the start of the rally — one of a few throughout the region tied to “Resist Trump Tuesdays” — the turnout rivaled the number of people who showed up at a similar event outside Issa’s office last week.

Many of the protesters said they are taking cues from the Indivisible Guide, a kind of blueprint for political activism that borrows from the Tea Party playbook and walks people through the process of reaching out to their congressional representatives.

“I have never in the past gone to any rally until the Women’s March,” said protester Belle Hazlehurst. “I just feel called to stand up for justice.” 

Over the weekend, White House spokesman Sean Spicer told Fox News that protests against Trump were not organic, but rather that people were being paid to protest.
