Trump Protesters Exceed Inaugural Crowd! Hear Us Roar!


Compare the size of the crowd from Obama’s inauguration to that of Trump.

Whatever numbers might be touted by Trump, this picture is the best evidence of the small crowd that actually turned out to watch the astonishing swearing in of the pussy-grabber in chief.  The national mall was filled to capacity for Obama’s inauguration, but there was more white showing on the mall for the Trump inauguration that the area covered by the crowd.

More impressive were the number of people across the country, and the world who turned out to demonstrate their disdain for the pussy-grabber.  Estimates of the number of people protesting are amazing!  Originally organizers of the Women’s March on Washington expected more than 200,000 people to participate in the protest in D.C.  D.C. Deputy Mayor for Public Safety and Justice Kevin Donahue tweeted Saturday morning that the anticipated number had jumped to 500,000. Just before 1 p.m. on Saturday, the D.C. government’s Inauguration Twitter account said Metro stations were “at full capacity.” By 4 p.m., Metro said its ridership for the day was at 597,000.   Perhaps the most objective comparison of numbers comes from the DC Metro which reported 275,000 rides as of 11 a.m. (1600 GMT) Saturday, 82,000 more than the 193,000 reported at the same time on Friday, Inauguration Day.

There were 670 gatherings around the world.  People demonstrated their solidarity with the Washington protesters.  There was an estimated global turnout of more than 4.6 million participants.

 

Protests occurred in  from London to Los Angeles, Paris to Park City, Utah, Miami to Melbourne, Australia.

Protesters in Texas didn’t even make the national news.  However there was an estimated n estimated 5,000 to 6,000 protesters in Fort Worth,   an estimated 20,000 in Houston, 3000 in Dallas, and 50,000 in.Austin.

Women have come too far to forget the strides we have made, and we must stand up and ensure that we stay strong and invincible.

  1. Trump has a HUUUGE problem. By having relationships with passive women and hookers, he has no clue of the power of a real women. Saturday, well actually during his campaign, he woke them up, all around the world. The intelligence, intuitive power, determination, and persistence of the true majority rocked the planet Saturday. Now, they will not rest until the problem is fixed.
    Men just left the toilet seat up for the last time.

    1. Hi,
      The number of demonstrators helps me feel better about the fact that Trump had enough people to vote for him that he won the election.

  2. As the live tiny parade went by you could see the empty stands and no crowd. I am so sick of this mentally ill person occupying our media and life. 18 months of him. He is the worst. Gosh he makes me sick to my stomach. When is the US Military going to arrest him? Our Ancestors died for our freedom and this country. …..and this two bit lousy actor steals the usa election? really?

  3. Malia –

    I had wondered if you were able to attend one of the events in Texas.
    Helen Reddy – one of my favorite singers – along with that one particular song. It seems so very long ago – and we thought we had handled the prejudice then. Nope. So…on we go.
    Have a great day.
    P.S. Did you have time to read that article on Raw Story I mentioned yesterday?

    1. Pat,
      I actually couldn’t go in part because of my MS, but this was also my “Bridge Weekend” where my brothers and mother come to play bridge all weekend. It was a nice distraction for the distressing realization that Donald Trump is our President.
