On January 20, 2017, Donald Trump will be inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States, and while some will celebrate this moment, there will also be plenty of protests, including one by women, the Women’s March on Washington.
Tuesday morning on CNN, senior Trump adviser Boris Epshteyn tried to downplay the Women’s March as insignificant and added that an “overwhelming” number of American women support Trump:
“Women in overwhelming numbers voted for Donald Trump — not the majority of women, but we received a great amount of support from women in this election. We very much respect the First Amendment. And we understand that people choose to protest. As long as they do so within all laws, rules and regulations, they are welcome to do so.”
What about the dozen or so women who say Trump grabbed them in sexual ways, kissed them, or groped them against their will, the very definition of sexual assault? Does Epshteyn think those women support Trump, too?
The deluded Trumpkin then had the nerve to add:
“We understand that people have concerns but we welcome them to our side. We hope some of those will come to D.C., change their mind. Instead of protesting, come celebrate with us.”
Just wondering: Does Boris Epshteyn still believe in Santa Claus and the Easter bunny? Because the likelihood that women who are going to Washington to protest Trump will suddenly decide to embrace the president-elect is, it’s safe to assume, zero. What parallel universe of upside-down reality do these deluded Trump mouthpieces live in?
Trump’s inauguration will be a spectacular failure, same as his time in office.
