My first inkling the Womens March was going to be BIG came from a short tweet I noticed the night before.
Paraphrasing a DC guy’s tweet,
“I don’t know what it’s like in your neighborhood but it’s around 9:30p.m. where I live and all I can hear is the sound of the wheels on luggage carriers — and it’s deafening.”
Rolling thunder seems the best way to describe that sound.
The Womens March infuriated the predator president for a couple reasons. The first being: Women brought it. The second being…still women! Women birthing the most massive, global, anti-Trump response. All women – humiliating Trump. Collectively.
But plummeting popularity aside, tweets captioned like the below have a way of burrowing under Trump’s paper-thin skin.
“Is it fair to call it a parade if no one is watching”
Agent Orange aside, women finally got woke, thanks to Hillary. We knew Putin was fearful of our strong Hillary, whereas Trump is weak and malleable. We know the election was stolen, and so we rolled. Collectively.
All those people – and not a single arrest. Kinda makes one wonder why men are in charge, eh?
What was done to Hillary was what got those little luggage wheels rolling towards DC…as well as all around the world. While much focus has been children and young women, grandmothers are pissed off too. So don’t rest Congress. We’re coming for you, too.
Some of us are coming on behalf of the 1,631 women who were killed by their boyfriends or husbands in 2015. They would want us to roll some of you out of office. Guys like Arkansas Tom Cotton, who stalled Cassandra Butts Ambassadorship so long, she died.
The backstory media missed
Media, being itself misogynistic, never quite got it. On July 28, 2016, I’d written, “This presidential race will boil down to the most qualified candidate in the world; versus: Misogyny.” Misogyny won. Temporarily. But we’re woke now.
So enjoy the signs, a little commentary, and knowing nothing will ever be the same, again.
THE MARCH – BOSTON
THE MARCH – NEW YORK CITY
THE MARCH – WASHINGTON DC
Remember Charlie? Charlie Brotman, the 89 year old presidential inaugural parade announcer since 1957, that Trump dumped? Well, the Womens March organizers invited Charlie to speak and not only did Charlie show up, he was funny, upbeat and awesome!
(Imagine Trump worrying about the march on top of being in a terrible mood from watching one’s own plummeting popularity. Imagine hosting the world’s most important electoral parties and still not being able to give tickets away. Imagine all that,and knowing a march was coming the very next day.)
THE MARCH – PORTLAND
THE MARCH – DENVER
THE MARCH – CHICAGO
Trolling Trump – World-wide
Who would have guessed it would be knitters who knew how to best, represent!
