‘Oops!’ Woman’s anti-Trump protest takes an embarrassing turn — at revolving doors

flowers0928Flower power ain’t what it used to be.

A woman trying to make a point by delivering an enormous bouquet of flowers to the Trump Tower in New York City ended up embarrassing herself instead — and needing the assistance of the tower’s security guards to clean up her own mess.

In the video posted by TMZ Monday, the woman identified as Estefani Mercedes, carries what TMZ calls 1,000 yellow dahlias — the national flower of Mexico — with each accompanied by a note from a Latin immigrant “sarcastically thanking Trump for his views on immigration.”

If the plan was to have Trump see each note personally, it ended in disarray when the woman was stymied by the revolving doors at the street-level entrance to the building. Men identified by TMZ as Trump Tower security guards eventually helped the woman pick up the fallen flowers and threw them away — but not before giving her one as a memorial for her effort.

Flower power might not be what it used to be, but at least chivalry isn’t dead.

Social media users weren’t as kind.
