    Photo: Tyler LaRiviere Soon it becomes official. Donald Trump will be sworn as the 45th president of the United States on Friday. When he assumes the office, he'll be theleast popular incoming Commander in Chief in nearly four decades-a fact clearly borne out locally by the ever-expanding list of protests, demonstrations, walkouts, fundraiser performances and workshops that organizers are launching this weekend in Chicago.
