Some are interesting/reasonable:
New York City had Brooke Shields, Liza Minelli, Yoko Ono, Cardinal O'Connor
Washington D.C. had Ronald Reagan and Tip O'Neill
Pittsburgh had Mr. Rogers
Columbus, Ohio had Michael J. Fox
Memphis had 54 Elvis impersonators
Little Rock had Governor Bill Clinton

But some are wtf. On one hand, you had major cities with apparently no one of any status:

Baltimore's complete list is Kenny Baker (R2-D2) and Emmanuel Lewis, which I assume means that they imposed a height requirement.
Cincinnati had Chewbacca
Indianapolis has no one listed at all, just the fact that it happened in the rain

On the other hand, you had Michael Jackson, easily the biggest star on the planet at that point, in Youngstown, Ohio.

Other things to note:
Anthony Daniels (C-3PO) was in Long Beach, California.
The wikipedia page lists a total of 24 cities, 5 of which are in Ohio (Youngstown, Cleveland, Toledo, Columbus, Cincinnati)

So clearly, this entire page was created by some Star Wars freak that grew up in middle Ohio.
Didn’t want your research here go unacknowledged.

more closely associating yourself with the reason your name has a negative connotation seems pretty dumb

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Melania invited a bullied kid to the SOTU. She ignored thousands bullied because of the president’s language.
“Trump is actually having an effect on America’s children,” Jonathan Cohen, an adjunct professor at Teachers College, Columbia University, told the Hechinger Report. “It’s not surprising. I’ve been hearing this in conversations I’ve been having with superintendents across America, an increase in students being mean and intentionally cruel, especially to immigrants.”

Researchers found that bullying was 18 percent higher at middle schools in Republican districts compared with those in Democratic districts. And teasing about race and ethnicity was 9 percent higher in Republican districts than in Democratic districts.

“It’s not that Trump alone is affecting how people think and feel and act,” Cohen said. “It’s Trump in partnership with the local community. If we have a large segment of the parent community who are connected to racist, anti-immigrant sentiment, then Trump is giving permission to these people to give voice to that sentiment.”

Others have found that Trump’s behavior — the president frequently calls his political opponents names and denigrates entire communities of people, sometimes with racial slurs — is affecting how children behave.

...

“Eight in 10 educators reported fears on the part of marginalized students including immigrants, Muslims, African Americans and LGBT people. Four in 10 heard derogatory language directed at minority students. More than 2,500 described instances of bigotry and harassment directly related to election rhetoric. Two out of 10 had heard derogatory comments about white students, although few of them were made directly to those students. Most were remarks about whites voting for Trump.”

This is funny in light of the new leaf politics was demanded to turn over. The republican President is a name calling sum *****.
