    Actually, this is what a demonstration looks like.

    (But that was the favorite chant during it.)

    We had at least 2,000 people in this little corner of Northern California. And while it won't make a bit of a difference, it felt good to get together to show our dissent.

    Good grief they made grand central more crowded than it is at 8 AM on a workday. Quite the hindrance to navigate through heading up north to west Chester today.

    Keep it peaceful and legal then there's no problem.

    Madonna and Judd sound irrational and nuts though.

    Judd getting a little personal there.

    Are we united yet?

    The verdict is definitely ... no.

    Realize the is a bigoted question, but I'll be racist and ask anyway:

    What has Trump done in the past 12 hours?

    Let this day be forever remembered in history when women strapped sexual reproduction organs to their heads to protest losing an election. I bet they will be telling generations future about this courageous act. Yes we can wear vaginas on our hat because Donald Trump is Hitler and stuff!

    Ask your wife (if you have one) if that's the message she takes away from today.

    I think a lot stems from the trump tapes that were released. Obviously words, which nobody disputes weren't great, hurt more than actions. Where was this response when bill and Hillary Clinton were silencing the rape victims of bill Clinton

    It is very hard to find specific meaning from anything any of the celebr.. I mean political analysts like America Ferrera say. The aspect of law that women could claim they don't have liberty on is abortion. I'm pro choice and would fight hard to keep it that way. But I would seriously appreciate some clarity on some of the phrases they're using. They're very emotive, but specifically what law of the land means women aren't equal?

    (It is VERY easy to find examples of this in other countries)

    I sense a new hashtag coming on: #trumpmath

    So, you clearly are completely unaware that there were female Trump supporters at these things too. Not as some sort of counter protest to the protest, but just because they were women. I even saw one interviewed tonight. She was pretty cool actually. Not deplorable at all. I'd hang out with her. Seemed quite nice. And not happy at all about Donald's first day crowd size obsession. :D

    I agree it seems weird, but I guess this is how some people express themselves.

    Although when I see these protests sprinkled with celebrities and posting on social media, they look brainwashed.
    The issues that they're protesting haven't changed from last week when they weren't protesting so I guess that means they're extrapolating - quite far IMO.

    Curious. How do you not support Americans demonstrating?
