Will the Trump administration ever leave Scabby the Rat alone? Unlikely, Gothamist reported on Monday. The aggressive-looking rat inflatable is beloved by unions, who display it and other inflatable animals to protest bad management practices or to indicate a picket line. Others, though, aren’t quite so fond of Scabby and his comrades. Peter Robb, who is the National Labor Relations Board’s conservative general counsel, despises the rat, and has waged a committed battle against its display since his confirmation in 2017. Robb, as Gothamist reports, believes the rat and his helium comrades constitute unlawful and coercive speech, and is determined to ban or at least severely restrict their use.
