Donald Trump was greeted by a chorus of boos from other voters as he walked into his polling place on East 56th Street in Manhattan on Tuesday.

Multiple videos show Trump pulling up to the PS 59 school building to vote for himself around 11 AM. As Trump skips the line and is shuffled inside, he raises his hand and waves to the crowd of waiting voters, who boo and heckle the GOP candidate. It looks like they jeered even harder as he made his exit, too.

Things have been wild at PS 59 since early morning, as people geared up for Trump's arrival. Around 8 AM, two topless female protestors disrupted the Midtown polling place, pulling off their shirts once they got inside to reveal bodies painted with anti-Trump slogans, according to Gothamist. The women were arrested and escorted off site.

After casting his vote, Trump now has a few presumably stressful-as-fuck hours to blow before his campaign party starts at 6:30 PM.

"If we don't win," Trump said Monday at his final campaign stop in western Michigan, "this will be the single greatest waste of time, energy, and money in my life." At least he can count on that one vote from his son.
