A neighborhood in Newport Beach was tagged with a bunch of graffiti this week—including one garage door that was scrawled with the message "Fuck Trump." Another garage was tagged with the statement, "Fuck the system."

NBC L.A. reports that crews in Corona del Mar spent Friday cleaning up graffiti throughout the affluent neighborhood. According to the L.A. Times, eight houses or apartment buildings in a wealthy neighborhood near China Cove were tagged.

"A couple of them are very dramatic and very meaningful, so we understood those obviously," Leon Grant, a Corona del Mar resident told NBC L.A. "Maybe there's political choices involved and unhappiness that way. Who knows what they could be thinking?"

It is quite the mystery, trying to decipher what one who writes "Fuck Trump" on a garage door might be thinking!

Resident Randy Post also speculated, "I think there's a lot of people that might not like wealth, so they come here to speak their piece."

But as the Times notes, most of the graffiti wasn't political in nature. According to NBC L.A., officials believe that many of the other symbols scrawled around the neighborhood were gang-related—street signs, trashcans, and fences were also tagged.
