Women with bright pink hats and signs begin to gather early and are set to make their voices heard on the first full day of Donald Trump’s presidency in Washington. Organizers of the Women’s March on Washington expect more than 200,000 people to attend the gathering. Other protests are expected in other U.S. cities.

WASHINGTON >> In a global exclamation of defiance and solidarity, more than 1 million people rallied at women’s marches in the nation’s capital and cities around the world Saturday to send President Donald Trump an emphatic message on his first full day in office that they won’t let his agenda go unchallenged.

“Welcome to your first day, we will not go away!” marchers in Washington chanted.

Many of the women came wearing pink, pointy-eared “pussyhats” to mock the new president. Plenty of men joined in, too, contributing to surprising numbers everywhere from New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and Los Angeles to Mexico City, Paris, Berlin, London, Prague and Sydney.

The Washington rally alone attracted over 500,000 people according to city officials — apparently more than Trump’s inauguration drew on Friday. It was easily one of the biggest demonstrations in the city’s history, and as night fell, not a single arrest was reported.

The international outpouring served to underscore the degree to which Trump has unsettled people in both hemispheres.

“We march today for the moral core of this nation, against which our new president is waging a war,” actress America Ferrera told the Washington crowd. “Our dignity, our character, our rights have all been under attack, and a platform of hate and division assumed power yesterday. But the president is not America. … We are America, and we are here to stay.”

Turnout in the capital was so heavy that the designated march route alongside the National Mall was impassable. Protesters were told to make their way to the Ellipse near the White House by way of other streets, triggering a chaotic scene that snarled downtown Washington. Long after the program had ended, groups of demonstrators were still marching and chanting in different parts of the city.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer had no comment on the march except to note that there were no firm numbers for turnout because the National Park Service no longer provides crowd estimates.

Around the world, women brandished signs with slogans such as “Women won’t back down” and “Less fear more love.” They decried Trump’s stand on such issues as abortion, health care, diversity and climate change. And they branded him a sexist, a bully, a bigot and more.

“We want a leader, not a creepy tweeter,” some marchers chanted in Washington. Others: “Welcome to your first day, we will not go away!”

In Chicago, organizers canceled the march portion of their event for safety reasons because of an overflow crowd that reached an estimated 250,000. People made their way through the streets on their own anyway. In New York, well over 100,000 marched past Trump’s home at glittering Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue. More than 100,000 also gathered on Boston Common, and a similar number demonstrated in Los Angeles.

In Miami, real estate agent Regina Vasquez, 51, brought a sign saying “Repeal and Replace Trump.”

“I believe that strength is in the numbers, and that we should all come out and not make Trump the new normal,” she said.

All told, more than 600 “sister marches” were planned worldwide. Crowd estimates from police and organizers around the globe added up to more than a million.

“I feel very optimistic even though it’s a miserable moment,” said Madeline Schwartzman of New York City, who brought her twin 13-year-old daughters to the Washington rally. “I feel power.”

Retired teacher Linda Lastella, 69, who came to Washington from Metuchen, New Jersey, said she had never marched before but felt the need to speak out when “many nations are experiencing this same kind of pullback and hateful, hateful attitudes.”

“It just seemed like we needed to make a very firm stand of where we were,” she said.

As the demonstrators rallied alongside the National Mall, Trump opened his first full day as president by attending a prayer service at the Washington National Cathedral, a tradition for the day after inauguration, and later visited the CIA. As he traveled around town, his motorcade passed large groups of protesters that would have been hard to miss.

The Women’s March on Washington appeared to accomplish the historic feat of drawing more people to protest the inauguration than the ceremony itself attracted.

It far surpassed the 60,000 people who protested the Vietnam War at Richard Nixon’s inauguration in 1973. Before Saturday, that was thought to be the largest such demonstration in inaugural history.

Christopher Geldart, Washington’s homeland security director, said the crowd exceeded the 500,000 that organizers told city officials to expect. The largest-ever demonstration in Washington, according to National Park Service crowd estimates, was an anti-Vietnam protest in 1969 that drew 600,000.

The Million Man March in 1995 drew 400,000, according to the park service, which no longer estimates crowd sizes, in part because the organizers of that event accused the agency of lowballing the number and threatened to sue.

The Washington rally was a peaceful counterpoint to the window-smashing unrest that unfolded on Friday when self-described anarchists tried to disrupt the inauguration. Police used pepper spray and stun grenades against the demonstrators. More than 200 people were arrested.

Marlita Gogan, who came to Washington from Houston for the inauguration, said police advised her family not to wear their “Make America Great Again Hats” as they walked through crowds of protesters while playing tourist on Saturday.

“I think it’s very oppressive,” she said of the march atmosphere. “They can have their day, but I don’t get it.”

Hillary Clinton, who lost to Trump, took to Twitter to thank the participants for “standing, speaking and marching for our values.”

The marches displayed a level of enthusiasm that Clinton herself was largely unable to generate during her campaign against Trump, when she won the popular vote but he outdistanced her in the electoral vote.

The hand-knit “pussyhats” worn by many women served as a message of female empowerment, inspired by Trump’s crude boast about grabbing women’s genitals.

They “ain’t for grabbing,” actress Ashley Judd told the Washington crowd.

The marches were a magnet for A-list celebrities, unlike Trump’s inauguration, which had a deficit of top performers.

Alicia Keys sang “Girl on Fire” for the Washington crowd. Madonna gave a fiery, profanity-laced address to the gathering. Cher, also in the nation’s capital, said Trump’s ascendance has people “more frightened maybe than they’re ever been.”

In Park City, Utah, it was Charlize Theron leading demonstrators in a chant of “Love, not hate, makes America great.” Actresses Helen Mirren and Cynthia Nixon and Whoopi Goldberg joined the crowd of protesters in New York.

Tens of thousands of protesters squeezed into London’s Trafalgar Square. In Paris, thousands rallied in the Eiffel Tower neighborhood in a joyful atmosphere, singing and carrying posters reading “We have our eyes on you Mr. Trump” and “With our sisters in Washington.” Hundreds gathered in Prague’s Wenceslas Square in freezing weather, mockingly waving portraits of Trump and Russia’s Vladimir Putin.

In Sydney, thousands of Australians gathered in solidarity in Hyde Park. One organizer said hatred, bigotry and racism are not only America’s problems.

    Geez, wonder when these women will condemn and ask TheDonald to destroy the MidEast and it’s practices against women?

    • klastri says:

      I’m sure in your mind this has something to do with him admitting serial sexual assault.

      • Pocho says:

        ^^^ huh, another Fake News item for you all here today.

        • aomohoa says:

          Fake news??? Millions of women and men are telling Trump he needs to represent all the people not just the racist and the bible belt that voted vote him. Remember he lost the popular vote. You people who think he is going to make America again, I so hope you are right but more than likely you are going to be greatly disappointed.

      • Vector says:

        The Womens Marches throughout the country and the world, in New York, Boston, Washington DC, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, San Francisco, BarCelina Spain, London, Paris,, Berlin, shows the solidarity of the people everywhere who are opposed to Trump’s fascist agenda, and are willing to fight for freedom, civil and equal rights. BEAUTIFUL acts of democracy at its most glorius. You can participate today at the Womens March and rally at the Hawaii State Capitol Ewa lawn at 8:30 this morning. Imua for fraternity, equality and justice for all. Aloha for All

      • NanakuliBoss says:

        And the repug women will endure 4 years of P grabbing? Oh my.

      • Boots says:

        fsher, interesting about the definition of lespark. Would never have guessed. I wonder if leapark ever came out?

      • BluesBreaker says:

        Trump’s in power, but he didn’t win. He lost to Clinton by millions of votes. He’s a loser and has made false claims since he started his campaign and continues to make them at every opportunity. One day he accuses the intelligence agencies of acting like nazis, then he shows up at the CIA and says, “I’m so behind you.” What a crock. Actually, he’s a crock. In a year or two his failure will be obvious to all, even his die-hard supporters. 38% approval to Obama’s 60% in the latest polls. His shrinking minority of approval will continue to shrink, until he’s impeached or thrown out of office.

    • allie says:

      Irrelevant. Trump could not care less about women’s rights in the Middle East. I cannot afford to go to DC but many of us are protesting here. Trump hates women and wants our rights destroyed. He is just a horrible immoral POTUS.

      • GONEGOLFIN says:

        Allie, Everone, even Trump deserves a 2nd chance. This is only the first chance. Why not give him the opportunity to prove you wrong.
        I tell you, we as a people have come a long way in the form of equality, women’s rights, and so on. It WOULD be a huge problem IF we go backwards from our way of thinking.
        And, that is my point. We will not retreat from where we have come. That makes no sense at all and I am sure as bad a you may think Trump is-he is smart enough to know the distance we’ve come and to go back in time is not beneficial.
        Bottom line: give him a chance to see WHAT he does.

        • jusris says:

          Why does Trump get a second chance when in Trumpers minds many “common” people deserve only one chance??? #MAGA

        • Boots says:

          You do have a point. The Donald is not tied to today’s republicans. He might just end up proposing a single pay health care system. No way you say? Consider that the Donald loves to shove expenses off on his employees and contractors so why not one of the largest costs of having an employee on the government?

        • Boots says:

          Why second chance? He is on his first chance now. Are you assuming he will fail?

        • aomohoa says:

          I actually get what you are saying. What I will do is watch him like a hawk and hope he proves so many of us wrong. There are so many gullible sheep that are easy to lead to slaughter in the country.

      • Boots says:

        Hate might be a misstatement. He likes to grab them you know where. Sign of affection. lol

      • Txpyer says:

        You know Trump will have the last say and he’s avenges criticism so if protestors would positively work with him, he may compromise. But if they continue to pee him and his administration off, protesters will never get any where. No matter what, it’s still politics at the White House.

        • jusris says:

          Negative, Trump will NOT have he last word, the American People will have the last word, whether it’s liberals or conservatives, the President works for us….#MAGA

      • lespark says:

        Allie, they will meet tomorrow @Aala Park at 5 am for another day of protests. Please come.

    • Boots says:

      Shouldn’t we just bomb Saudi Arabia, a main ally?

  2. paradisetax says:

    What about the other side? I guess these bigots will not tolerate the pro life movement.

    • Usagi336 says:

      Apparently saving a baby’s life is not part of this nation’s moral core according to these people.

      • GONEGOLFIN says:

        Always 2 sides to a story.
        I see from both sides and understand both spectrums of the issue.
        ALWAYS BEEN A TOUGH CHOICE!

      • jusris says:

        Yes and it shouldn’t be, out of sight out of mind, just like the homeless…#MAGA

      • Boots says:

        Wrong. I am sure these women would be the first to save a baby’s life within reason. But you need to understand that a fetus is not a baby and you shouldn’t call it one.

        • Ronin006 says:

          Fetus, noun. An unborn offspring of a mammal, in particular an unborn human baby more than eight weeks after conception.

        • Cricket_Amos says:

          You can try and paper it over with a latin based word, but that does not change what it is.

          After about 12-13 weeks there is no question that it is a little human being.

          The last figures I saw from the CDC showed 50,000 healthy, innocent, intact little human beings being executed.

          What kind of a culture thinks that this is OK?

    • latenightroach says:

      The organizers of today’s event denied the request by a women’s group wanting to represent their support for pro-life. The permit request for this women’s “march” today was submitted a year ago but the narrative of it has changed because Trump has been elected. They simply just to hate on him. That’s fine and dandy with me as long as they keep it peaceful but I do think they’re just wasting their time.

      • Boots says:

        Do you have a link for this? Just curious about their reasons for declination.

      • jusris says:

        Pro-life women were on Fox stating that they are NOT Trump supporters and are anti-Trump…So how is this a Hate on Trump decision to not have the pro-lifers who are anti-Trump not march today??? Fake News on your part, tsk, tsk, tsk…shame…#MAGA

  3. Wazdat says:

    I am all for protesting but these poor women are so mis-informed its sad. YOU live in AMERICA and have everything you could wish for.

    These sore losers need to GET A LIFE and STOP spreading your HATE..

    Hilary LOST so its time to GET OVER IT..

    • PoiDoggy says:

      That’s rich coming you from you, who never wasted an opportunity to criticize Obama, either here or on the SA’s facebook page (you’d sometimes post the exact same comment on here and on the SA’s fb page).

      You clearly didn’t “get over” Obama’s election. Yet you won’t extend that courtesy to others? That makes you nothing more than a hypocrite.

      In fairness, you didn’t have to “get over” the fact that Obama was president. Why should you, if you didn’t agree with him? I felt your criticism of Obama was misguided and unjustified. But never once did I think you shouldn’t be allowed to make your observations, or deny you the rights to your own feelings. Yet you won’t extend that courtesy to others.

      I never called you a “sore loser.”

      That’s just plain unkind. These people (not just women; many men are marching too) feel strongly about the issues. Look at your first sentence; “I am all for protesting but these poor women are mis-informed its sad.” You’re saying “I am all for protesting, but only if they’re protesting something I agree should be protested.” So you’re really not for protesting at all. That’s so one sided. And that’s not how free speech works. In fact, you should really support those with whom you disagree even more; like the ACLU defended the rights of Nazis to parade in Skokie, Illinois, back in the 70s.

      The protest today is about taking a stand. It’s saying “Our views must be taken into account. The administration of the US needs to represent all of its citizens, not just those who voted for them.” Seems an important thing to do, and nothing hateful about it.

      It’s not right to demean people simply because they don’t agree with you. Which is what you are doing here. It’s wrong and unkind. It’s not fair. It’s not right.

      I smiled at your belief that people in America “have everything you could wish for.” Such a short sighted views; makes me think you are very young. Perhaps still in high school? The United States, and the world, is a lot more complex than that. There might be “everything you could wish for” in this country, but the plain fact is it’s not made available to everyone, nor will it ever be. If you are w/o money in this country, the game is really stacked against you (I can’t believe you don’t know at least one person with financial worries). Look at the homeless; they obviously don’t have “everything you could wish for.” For many many people, life is hard, even here, the so-called “land of plenty”; life is still, in Hobbes’ words, “ugly, brutish, and short.”

      Women here don’t have “everything you could wish for.” They don’t feel they are treated fairly. I have 2 female friends, on the mainland, who are too frightened to leave their homes after dark, afraid of being attacked simply because they are women. I don’t mean afraid to go out late at night; I mean afraid to go out after sunset. I, for example, will make the five minute walk to the grocery store at 10 pm if I need to get milk for tomorrow. But they are too afraid to do that! It makes me sad to live in a country where my friends don’t feel safe simply because of their gender. Sadly, we’ve seen plenty of evidence of that inequality in the last year, where rich white boys got a slap on the wrist after being convicted of rape, yet a black kid gets a stiff sentence. Why? Clearly, the woman being attacked didn’t matter. But the race of the perpetrator did. Land of inequality.

      You don’t have to agree with the reasons for a protest. But it’s wrong to tell people they cannot, should not, protest because they are “mis-guided.” I believe it is you who are misinformed, living comfortably and so not feeling the need the look beyond your own nose. Life is evidently sweet for you, but it is not so for others, and if they’re unhappy about that, that’s no reason to call them “sore losers.” You’ll meet many people during your life, and throwing out casual insults is not going to help you in the long run. It’s certainly not going to persuade anyone about the merits of your argument.

      • soundofreason says:

        Most of the people that I know, who have no money, is not because because someone took it from them. They have no money because they did nothing about accumulating any. They spend for what they want TODAY. In most cases, you can show me someone in a current “situation” but then you want to ignore the back story of just how they got there.

        • jusris says:

          Do you also agree that we ignore the back story in how some people got their money, or are the poor the only ones we do that with???

        • Boots says:

          Just curious how many people do you know who have “no money”? I know a few who have little money but no one with no money. Love your assumption on why they don’t have lots of money. Obviously there are women who spend for today without thinking about the future, but all poor women can hardly be classified as such.

      • roughrider says:

        Amen. Peaceful protest is healthy for a democracy. Sad to read the over-reaction by a few on this post, particularly one who is making an a– out of him (or her) self.

      • lespark says:

        Your two friends are afraid to leave their house at night because Obama cleaned out the prisons.

      • Waterman2 says:

        LOL ! And that is why you voted for Hussain ? Confusion reigns.

      • Boots says:

        I think Obama got a lot done. He pulled the country out of the worst recession since the great depression. Unemployment is now under 5% instead of being at 10%. The stock market is now close to 20,000 instead of being under 7000. Yes perhaps Obama coud have done more but on the whold I think he did a lot.

        It will be interesting to see what the Donald accomplishes. Love one of his first accomplishment:

        JUST IN: In one of first Trump admin. orders, Dept of Housing & Urban Dev. suspends reduction of FHA annual mortgage insurance premium rates

          There was a picture of the mall during Obama’s swearing in and yesterday. Yesterday looked deserted compared to Obama’s swearing in. But I have no way of knowing how valid the Trump picture is. It might have been done really early before people showed up or late after everyone left?

      Are you married? I Don’ t think you would say that in front your wife. What a disgusting person.

  4. Mythman says:

    while Trump reaches tens of millions directly tweeting his message and thoughts, these folks still use the old fashioned demonstration model, massing in DC in protest of the election results. Trotsky would be beaming with joy at the folly. Hate is mentioned six times in the garbage reporting of the AP hacks, also serving the old fashioned “news” and “public opinion” model of communication.

  5. klastri says:

    Mr. Trump’s ridiculous raised fist at the inauguration told his opposition everything we needed to know.

    He wants a fight? He’s going to get one. The government doesn’t employ enough lawyers to work the avalanche of legal actions coming his way.

    • Mana07 says:

      Oooohhhh. I bet he’s scared now. Lol

      • Pocho says:

        TheDonald’s kona crawl back into his hole. lol, pretty big ones for that matter

      • klastri says:

        You know nothing, obviously. Are you an adult? The goal is not to scare anyone – it’s to throw sand in the gears of his administration.

        The first suit against him was filed on Friday. The goal of that one is to expose his cesspool of conflicts, and to prevent the illegal and unconstitutional actions he promised his clueless supporters during the campaign.

    • GONEGOLFIN says:

      Klasti, you are clown.
      You need to learn about interpretation.
      The fist is representative of his will and desire.
      He will make America great again.

    • Boots says:

    • Ronin006 says:

      Klastri, you have every right to interpret Trump’s raised fist anyway you want, and I am not surprised you have given it a negative interpretation. Being a brilliant lawyer or former lawyer who seems to know everything about anything, you should know the raised fist or clenched fist historically has been used as a symbol of solidarity, unity, support and resistance to violence. It has nothing to do with wanting to fight as you suggest.

      • skinut says:

        Trump’s actions during the campaign make his call for unity in his speech laughable. After spewing so much garbage he will now, rightfully, suffer the blowback.

  6. jussayin says:

    As much as folks don’t care for Trump, these same folks should be upset with Obama for polarizing America. In other words, many other folks became very upset during his term. When you sit back and think about it, wow, it’s amazing that Trump won. No political experience, said the wrong things, didn’t campaign much compared to Clinton, etc. So there’s a large bunch of folks that are quite upset. Sorry for the ‘obvious’ but the media continues to forget them. Anyway, let’s relax and enjoy the weekend!

    • NanakuliBoss says:

      If you were upset with Obama then why not gather up for a million person protest? Because you lazy? Not enough bs people? Only blogs bs. Not enough gumption to get off the lazyboy? Lol. You had the option during Obama years, but chose to sit on your azz.

  7. tutulois says:

    Looking at the huge numbers of people turning out in DC, Boston, Chicago, Austin – I am thinking that this should be a good reminder to Republicans that they do not have a mandate. In fact their candidate lost the popular vote by the highest percentage in American history, for someone who ended up winning the office. Numbers mean voters, and if Republicans go too far in pushing a far-right agenda, they will pay for it dearly in two years (and four years).

    • noheawilli says:

      Hilarious!

    • blackmurano says:

      To Tutulois what is the “Far right agenda” to you? Maybe I can help you. Over 60 million Americans voted for President Donald Trump in the Presidentail Election. The States of California and New York gave Hillary the popular votes. All other State gave the landslide vote overwhelmingly for President Trump.
      Back to the Far right agenda. Americans that share Godly family values, like myself and family, were living in America for the last eight years headed by a Muslim far left President Barack Hussien Obama who blaspehme God’s covenant of marriage of one man and one woman. Obama is rank as the most evil President this country has ever had with the constant support of Planned Parenthood and murdering the unborn. The moral collapse of this country attribute to Obama and liberal Democrats.
      Christians in America prayed to Almighty God and went to the polls to vote for Donald Trump. God had his hand in the victory for Donald Trump. God Almighty knows how evil Obama is and will have the last word with Obama at the White Throne Judgment Seat of Christ soon.
      A Hillary Clinton Presidency would complete the sweep of secularization of American. Her Progressive (secular, liberal and athesit) agenda would slowly removed anything Christian from America. Democrats are a tool of Satan the devil. This is why Christians in America woke up and their prayed was answered to prevent this takeover by the evil Democrat liberal secular atheist party.

      • aomohoa says:

        Religious fanatics are scarier than Trump. Sorry but he only cares about him self and the fact that he could win the ultimate prize. You don’t care about all the people, just the people who think and are exactly like you.

        • jusris says:

          Bravo!!!!! Great post!!!!

        • skinut says:

          Agreed. The self-righteousness of religious fanatics is downright scary!

        • Mr Mililani says:

          You are so right about the “religious fanatics”. Can’t help but wonder how these religious nut-cases can get so brain-washed to actually think what they believe is true. I guess we will always have to accept the fact that this country has its share of the lunatic fringe.

  8. blackmurano says:

    The pro-life women of American, an organization of saving the unborn from being murdered, were banned from being in this Women march in Washington DC. You got feminist and women saying, “stay out of my womb” its my right. Wrong!!!. God Almighty formed each person in their mother’s womb not for the purpose of murdering the unborn because your fornication got you in trouble by being pregnant.
    Over 60 million babies has been aborted or better sense of the word – Murdered. 95 percent of those murdered baby, because their mother didn’t want them. But Planned parenthood calls it “the care of a women’s health.’
    Well we got President Donald Trump who will save those unborn from being murdered. If the woman does not want the child, put it up for adoption where thousands or more couples would adopt them.
    The women marching in Wash DC, do not have any moral conscience even when a 9 month baby is removed from its mother’s womb. As the new born baby is crying, the abortionist doctor with his tool sucks out the crying baby brain and complete this heinous abortion procedure. Hillary Clinton and the Democratic party supports abortion and this murdering procedure of a alive and crying baby abortion procedure. This Women march, undoubtedly Democrats are evil, just plain evil.

    As least only Trump talked about grabbing womans genitals. As I recall, Clinton stuck a cigar into a subordinates genitals. No mention of how women are treated in the MidEast. And no, I dont want to pay for your birth control pills ( I paid for mine- it was cheap) unless you have endometriosis.

      It’s clear this angry mob is quite okay with the way women are treated in Muslim majority countries. Their silence on the matter is deafening. What this is about is the continuation of Barry Hussein’s transformation to a socialist paradise. Using so-called women’s issues is one way to get there. The thuggish BLM movement is another as are open borders and endless expansion of the welfare state.

      • jusris says:

        Because America First is the slogan…Why should they worry about Muslim women when America isn’t correct with women’s rights, fix America then move on to another country…Trump said Make America Great Again not Muslim Countries…#MAGA

      Remember Monica…She gave Bill a “blow job” in his oval office. His spilled all over her dress. That evidence was introduce during Bill Clinton impeachment.

      The U.S. House voted to IMPEACHED Bill Clinton, but the U.S. Senate Democrat Majority gave him a pass, like his wife got a free pass for her evil deeds with the U.S. Embassy in Libya and her email server. Several Democrat politician ask Obama to pardon Hillary.

      • Mr Mililani says:

        Hate to say it “black” but you sound sick. Did you come here from Samoa for free medical care?

        • blackmurano says:

          To Mililani. . . No, not from Samoa. You are a typical liberal Democrap. What I told you is what happened at the impeachment court proceedings in Congress and on National television, the evidence of Bill Clinton not telling the truth in saying “I never had sex with that woman” proves wrong when Monica presented her stain dress at the proceedings.
          They may have not used the term “blow job” but they use it in a different term in court. Her dress was stain with Bill Clinton’s sperm.
          Mililani you got a pilau mouth that needs washing. Let me know when I can wash it.

        “Her evil deeds with the u.s. embassy in libya and her email server”? Despite the very expensive efforts of the republican party to tar and feather secretary clinton, she was cleared of wrongdoing in the embassy matter and was found to be merely careless with her emails. Stop trying to perpetuate the lies and smears.

    Who dislikes Isis more Obama or trump? How does Isis treat women?

  13. Ronin006 says:

    “We march today for the moral core of this nation….” Yes, like killing almost a half million unborn infants each year and calling it women’s health or women’s rights.

  14. bombay2101 says:

    And where the women marches in the Islamic and African countries?
    What? There are none? Gee, life must good for women in those countries.

    • jusris says:

      Are they able to march in the Islamic and African country and voice they’re displeasure without drastic penalties??? American women want to follow Trumps lead and Make America Great Again…#MAGA

    Nigel announced he is sponsoring a program to give away free ironing boards and free washing machines plus a sewing kit to women who can prove they have had at least one abortion. He is doing a crowd funding campaign to pay for the stuff. This is to replace the obama phone giveaway.

  16. 64hoo says:

    these protesters in the U.S. and around the world are nothing but witches with clipped hair and mustaches.

  17. CEI says:

    Okay girls you had your fun and 15 minutes of fame. Time to get back home to take care of your families and finish the housework.

  18. MoiLee says:

    “Moderation” for what SA? Read it again.

  19. Waterman2 says:

    Awaiting moderation…………well ok , but might I point out that such wording is the focal point of the March we are talking about. Every speaker there used the word at least once and the Likes of Ashley Judd and Cher used it in every sentence, and worse…………..but you are right , it is disgusting. Nasty nasty baby killers all.

  20. Ronin006 says:

    I dare say that most of the hundreds of thousands of women protesting against Trump are women who support and defend the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of unborn humans every year under the pretense of women’s health. We live in a very sick society.

  21. MamaKin says:

    Finally! It took 45 presidents to get one hot first lady in the White House.

  22. Marauders_1959 says:

    And…. what did they accomplish ?

    • BluesBreaker says:

      They made it clear that Trump, the loser of the popular vote to HRC, has no mandate. He’s hated by millions and those in office who support him and his policies will have to answer for their bad judgment in 22 months.

  23. klastri says:

    Trump is now lying (of course) that he had record crowds for his inauguration. Wrong. I’m in DC, and the Mall was largely empty.

    Like many of his supporters on here, Trump cannot tell the truth.

    • saywhatyouthink says:

      That’s funny, I watched it on TV and it appeared to be “standing room only” with people covering the entire mall. Strange that you didn’t see anyone. Or are you lying?

  24. MoiLee says:

    I see the libs are regaining some confidence again.Haaaaaaaaaaaa Mr. Klastri aka. “Hillary will win By a Landslide”. Of course with his fake poll numbers he would believe in the Tooth Fairy and Jimmy The Cricket! And Poor Sport For the Love of Money “Puss N Boots” ,lining himself with the disgruntled Hollywood Celebrities .Claiming to Move to Australia if Trump wins! Well hate to break it to you……. Trump WON! Why are you still here?
    These guys are Just “All Talk and NO Action” SAD. Don’t buy into their opinions of irrelevancies. Their domain is in another”Realm”.

    Wow, it was so awesome watching the news and seeing hundreds of thousands of people throughout our country taking part in the Women’s March. And what’s more amazing was seeing people in other countries also taking part! An incredible turnout. Don’t ever underestimate the power of women! So proud of everyone who took part. #WomensMarch
