I wish these people would stop being so high on themselves. They may think they have the moral high ground here by protesting Mr. Trump at every single opportunity. But they do themselves and the Jewish people no favors by constantly showing how much thy hate the new President.
I have no proof of this. But my feeling is that most of these people are of the progressive social engineering mentality that never saw a conservative politician they liked. That they are protesting Trump so often in ways that they have never protested any other conservative politician is because they now feel they have license to do so. Why? Because Mr. Trump's rhetoric has been so terrible and worthy of condemnation all by itself. Even to some of his supporters. So they feel they can get away with it, without people discovering their true agenda.
But it's just excuse - an opportunity that they can get away with. They can bash him much more freely for the real reasons they hate him: his conservative political views.
I have no respect for people that will not give the legitimately elected President of the United States a chance to prove himself before he even starts... and protests him every chance they get asking people to boycott his inauguration. Even his election opponents will be there... Republican and Democrat. People that clearly did not vote for him: The Clintons... The Bushses... They understand that every freely and democratically elected official should get the chance to serve the people that elected him. There will be plenty of time to protest him once he is in office. Now is not that time. And those that do so expose themselves for who they really are: Leftist fascists!.
