Nobody Trolls Like Trump

It’s Day Two of the government shutdown. Democrats spent yesterday celebrating and marching, even here in Park City at the Sundance Film Festival. Their message was an important one, according to the Daily Beast:

This year’s rally seemed united by two themes: the importance of this moment for women, and, well, “F*ck Donald Trump.”

While last year’s march at the Fest was said to top out at 4000 (yuge, in Park City) this year’s was exaggerated to reflect “hundreds.”  Of course last year’s numbers included Harvey Weinstein who was marching in solidarity with them, and we all know how many independent, strong women were attracted to Harv, wherever he went, and no matter what he did.


This year’s march has headlined by Hanoi Jane and Gloria Allred, which could explain the lower turnout.

As snow fell at the rate of an inch an hour, the temperature fell to 22 degrees, and traffic crawled to a stop, the crowd gathered in a Park City athletic field to mark the first anniversary of President Trump’s inauguration and the women’s rallies that sprang up around the country and the world. They waved signs that read “Dream Act Now,” “Free Melania,” “Make Russia Great Again,” and “Our Rights Are Not Up For Grabs.” In one of the more imaginative protests, Nina Kaufman, a Salt Lake City-based performance artist, stripped to a sports bra and rolled down a long banner adorned with a poem about the environment. As she wiped snow off and sipped coffee, Kaufman told Variety that she had been retired for 15 years, but had been spurred into action by the #MeToo movement. – Variety

Wow, way to protest Nina! But wait, there’s more:

Allred, a women’s rights attorney, led attendees in a chant of “Resist. Persist. Insist. Elect.”

“This marks the end of fear being used as a weapon to silence women…this is the year that women’s voices have been heard…and the year we said to rich, powerful, famous men, ‘You can break out hearts, but you cannot break our silence!’”


 William Wallace would be so proud.

Although he couldn’t attend himself, VSG-PDJT sent a message:
