Philadelphia Flyers mascot Gritty's likeness wears Antifa logo at anti-Trump protest

The Philadelphia Flyers' new mascot became a symbol for anti-Trump protesters on Tuesday as demonstrators evoked the image of the orange, muppetlike character ahead of the president's speech.

About a hundred people gathered outside the Philadelphia Convention Center, following a banner that showed mascot Gritty dressed in the Antifa logo with the message "Gritty say 'G.T.F.O of Philly!'"

Other protesters carried signs with Gritty, signs that included similar expletives telling Trump to get out of Philly.

One sign, for instance, read, "This town only has room for one orange a------."
