A man (who appears to be a British comedian) ran up to Rupert Murdoch at today’s hearing and tried to throw a pie in his face (or a plate of foam). Here’s the screen capture – it’s less clear in the video, below:

Donald Trump poses a unique threat to everything we hold dear -- from LGBT rights, to civil rights overall, climate change, Wall Street reform, and national defense.
We must fight back, and we CAN win this. But it will take hard work and time. I am already making preparations for a wide-ranging campaign to fight Trump's Cabinet appointees and supreme court nominations. As part of that effort, when my lease is up in NYC, I will be moving back to Washington, DC, to take the fight directly to Donald Trump.
