Steve Lynch is no fan of the nascent Trump administration. At a forum at Milton Avenue tonight, the 8th District congressman had some choice words, as highlighted by Molly Lanzarotta:

I've never seen concern like this before.

We have to buy sneakers...there will be a lot more marches.

Trump is good for 2 groups: Goldman Sachs and Russia.
