put a feminist hat on, eat some muffins and shout some empowering slogans.
That sounds like a blast. I would rather do that as well.

Out of curiousity, what percentage of the marchers were white women, and how does that jibe with the estimate that 53% of white women voted for Trump?

So realistically, not everyone at the Women's march were anti-Trump. Okay, maybe some are just regrettable, shy or just thought it would make for a nice Sunday outing, right?
Educate yourself.

If you're naive enough to think these people are snowflakes, this was the beginning of an avalanche.

Okay, so since you're "educated" about the attendees, tell me, were they for or against FGM?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Oh no - I just saw a tweet I cannot unsee. I can't post it here to not offend anyone but it said "Trump got more beep women walk in 1 day than Michelle Obama did in 8 years". That's so mean

Why are people so mean?!

Didn't read the long thread. But tell us - are you for or against FGM?

See, now that would have been a terrific response from Trump instead of his weird tirade at the CIA.

If you were educated, you'd know this is an issue addressed on International Women's Day which is 8th March.

Yesterday's marches were a direct response to Trump's election and protesting against the rights that of women that are threatened during his presidency.

And realistically was everyone attending Trump's inauguration pro-Trump or just having nice Friday outing on this Federal holiday in the “Inauguration Day area”?

And the pink hats were a mere coincidence. Fashion!

Lol, the level of facetiousness is unbearable.

BTW
The Washington Metro system said over 1 million trips were taken on Saturday, compared with about 570,000 on Friday

A lot of people having a nice day out !!

Saw this comment somewhere and did chuckle:

"Don't see the problem with Trump. Trump got more fat women walking in one day than Michelle Obama did in 8 years."

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Trump did well on TV, 31 million viewers watched live U.S. television coverage of Donald Trump's presidential inauguration, other Presidents;
  • Reagan 42 million
  • Obama 38 Million
  • Carter 34 Million
  • Bush Junior 29 Million
  • Nixon 27 Million
  • Bush the Elder 23 Million

And finally some words from Madonna at the March;
  • Madonna: 'Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House'
  • Madonna ended her address with a rendition of her song, "Express Yourself," in which she sang, "Donald Trump, suck a dick, I'm not your bitch."

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

But here is the problem. Spicer gets on in a huff and then Kellyane yammers on and on about alternative facts, and the MLK bust. her ability to use false equivalence to distract and deflect is really finely honed.

I saw a snippet from meet the press where the moderator was asking her about Spicer's performance and she went on about false reporting about the MLK bust, then a bunch of stuff from Obama's administration. So she doesn't have to respond because there are all these other irrelevant injustices which she hammers on ad nauseum.

In the meantime, no substantive info about the actions taken by Trump, and everyone is exhausted. Except Kellyann.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

A friend was there. She said it isn't anti-Trump, but pro-Women lobbying.

Another was incensed that Debbie Wasserman-Schultz spoke, as she rigged the Democratic nomination.

It turns out a lot of the organizations behind it is backed by sorrows..... as well as Soros.

I doubt this crowd will be able to agree on anything, but it looked nice, and I hope they had a nice day.

Meanwhile, many Trump inauguration attendees were interviewed, and said they voted against him, but were simply there to witness and celebrate the peaceful transition of power.

They have it all wrong again, to promulgate all this as anything meaningful really is another case of fake news.

I've never watched an inauguration in real time because I was always at work. This time, I made a sandwich and sat down to watch it when the last of my wisdom teeth fell out. My dentist said this would happen last November and to let nature take it's course, but I've taken the timing as an omen. So, I've yet to watch an inauguration in real time even though I've stayed up all night for the State Of The Nation Address dozens of times.
