‘Trump’s cabinet is a joke’ chants crowd near Sen. Cochran’s office

About 50 activists chanted, sang and waved signs outside the federal courthouse on Monday evening in a protest against climate change deniers in federal government.

The main target of the rally organized by the Steps Coalition was Sen. Thad Cochran, whose office is nearby. Steps Coalition spokeswoman Jennifer Croslin said similar rallies were held at Senate offices across the country.

She was surprised at the turnout because only 14 people had RSVP’ed to the event.
