Speaker of the House Paul Ryan visited a New York City charter school in Harlem on Monday, and it didn’t go so well.

As the Wisconsin Congressman entered the Harlem Success Academy 1 Charter School, protesters hundreds of protesters cordoned across the street held signs that said “Lyin’ Ryan Wants You Dead,” “Medicaid Cuts Kill,” and held tombstones while shouting “Shame!”

Not only were the protesters incensed about the recently passed “Obamacare” repeal, but about also how charter schools have come into mostly-black communities like Harlem, sucking precious resources from already underfunded public education and making a pretty penny for those who have an financial interest in them.

The hashtag #ExcuseMeMrSpeaker started trending on Twitter right before his appearance at the school.
