That was Hillary's inauguration

Three words of advice for my fellow supporters of President Trump: Don't get cocky.

On Friday, we saw the real inauguration of Donald Trump. Impressive. Third largest crowd ever, both in attendance and on television.

On Saturday, we saw what might have been, a far larger assembly of humanity across the Anglosphere. 

Smirk at the whiteness and derangement of those in attendance at your own risk. Make no mistake, the Women's March was Hillary's inauguration.

The media never quite said that, but this was not some event inspired by a lady lawyer in Hawaii and slapped together at the last moment, as the Left would have you believe. 

Nor was this event solely a George Soros-funded project, as the Right would have you believe.

This was a defiant let's-go-anyway protest.

People -- Americans -- decided after the election to go to Washington anyway just to show "them," whoever them is. This is perhaps the first legitimately grassroots protest from the left in my lifetime.

I am not saying it was not organized or that Soros did not have his hand in it. And sure, Madonna and other elderly entertainers horned in. I wrote about that Parade of Menopausal Actresses yesterday.

But their feelings were real. This is a loyal and formidable opposition. They have money. They have numbers. They have the media behind them. They vote.

What motivated Hillary's supporters to attend in Washington was a combination of non-refundable reservations, and the indignity of being denied the coronation of the First Woman President.

The baby boomers in the crowd clutch their AARP cards and realize they likely won't see a woman president in their lifetime, or if they do, she will be a Republican.

Many of them project their own lives on Hillary's. They entered adulthood in the Luke-and-Laura years of "General Hospital." They took to heart the Clinton soap opera, and saw Hillary not as a manipulative, back-stabbing, and calculating witch, but as a victim.

Two decades later, they would go through the gates of hell with a jug of gasoline under each arm for her.

OK, maybe that is a bit of an over statement. But some of them did go through the magnetometers of the national mall dressed as a vagina.

They now turn their pain into anger.

As William Congreve wrote in his play, "The Mourning Bride," more than four centuries ago:
Heaven has no rage, like love to hatred turned,
Nor hell a fury, like a woman scorned.
Do not take them lightly. These are the mean girls. They will not let up. Neither can we.

Please read "Trump the Press," in which I skewer media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.

It covers the nomination process only. The general election will be covered in a sequel, "Trump the Establishment."

  1. On Saturday an old man approached the White House from across Pennsylvania Avenue, where he’d been sitting on a park bench. He spoke to the U.S. Marine standing guard and said, “I would like to go in and meet with President Obama.” The Marine looked at the man and said, “Sir, Mr. Obama is no longer president.” The old man said “Okay” and walked away.

    On Sunday, the same man approached the White House and said to the same Marine “I would like to go in and meet with President Obama.” The Marine again told the man “Sir, as I said yesterday, Mr. Obama is no longer president.” The man thanked him and, again, just walked away.

    This morning, the same man approached the White House and spoke to the very same U. S. Marine, saying “I would like to go in and meet with President Obama.” The Marine, understandably agitated at this point, looked at the man and said, “Sir, this is the third day in a row you have been here asking to speak to Mr. Obama. I’ve told you already that Mr. Obama is no longer president. Don’t you understand?”

    The old man looked at the Marine and said, “Oh, I understand. I just love hearing it.”

    The Marine snapped to attention, saluted and said, “See you tomorrow, sir.”

  2. Very cowardly article. Will you write about how many more women show up for the March for Life?

  4. The Left is always angry. They can't live without something, and someone, to hate.

    We saw it when Dubya was in. We saw it when Reagan was in.

    What you saw Saturday was the Ladies' Auxiliary doing their part. If just one of those broads had actually come up with something new instead of the same old Lefty talking points, it might have had some significance.

    As it is, this is nothing more than a continuation of the previous post about Chuck Todd.

    I realize the things that will mark this Administration will be the character tests that come out of a clear blue sky, but the "Womyn's March" is just standard Lefty boilerplate.

  5. Trump's inauguration was third most viewed ever on tv after Reagan's first and Obama's first. Thanks for the Alternative Fact though.

    2. Considering the rainy weather and the threats of violence issued by the Left, I'm surprised how many people did show up for the inauguration. Out of an abundance of caution, I stay away from any event that attracts a crowd. In old age, I've gotten very risk averse.

  6. Trump has just two years to get his action plan implemented. The Dems are preparing for battle to win back one chamber of Congress in 2018 so they can create a stalemate in Congress for the last two years of his term. If successful, a stalemate could be the key for the Dems returning to the WH in 2020, assuming they have the right candidate. Of course, one of their main problems is finding someone who's not part of the over 70 crowd. The Democrats hope constant protests against Trump over the next 4 years will wear down independent voters so they throw in the towel and either tune out or vote Democratic just to put an end to all the acrimony. As I've said before, this is going to be a long, contentious 4 years. I'm sure Trump is up to it. I'm not so sure his voter base is prepared to stick by him under the constant assault.

    1. Trump is not going to be Prez in two years. He will have been done in by his own party and replaced by the conservative the Rs wish they had all along - Mike Pence. Just wait and see. And once rustbelt America realizes Trump was never going to be able to live up to his promises, there will be no revolt among the people. On Friday (how ironic), 2,000 GM workers were laid off at an Ohio assembly plant. Funny how that didn't make Trump's Twitter account.

    2. Trump will be "replaced"? How? He was elected by the voters, not by his party. This is not a parliamentary system we got going here, pal. He's the president, not the PM. Impeached? Not by the squishes in the GOPe.

  7. Hillary's party? Maybe.
    Generalized anxiety? Maybe.
    Sit down/lid down TEA party (today's running narrative)? Uh, no. Not until there is a mission statement.
    Girls day out? My bet. On Soros' 89 million.

    Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.

    The socialist party, however, is always the match.

    1. He's a very old 69. Practically Methuselah. Why, he was on SNL when it was still (partly) funny. That was ages ago.

  9. Saturday was the "lamentation of the women" part of the "crush your enemies, drive them before you" thing.

    Roger that.

  11. I agree, do not just brush them off. Over in Instapundit a commenter was brushed off, even by Glenn. I believe it is a grave mistake. Trump can take a lot of wind out of their sales by getting together with Ryan and announce that the replacement for ACA would mandate "free" birth control (for women as well as men).

  12. These people are not going away and yes they have a lot of $$ and numbers etc. But I don't think they quite appreciate what they are going up against. I caught up with comments today from madonna and that judd thing. The vulgarity and disrespect in their language is over the top repulsive. One of them is going to shoot off their sassy, potty mouth some day around the wrong person, and they will get one right in the kisser. They both sound like they think they are tough, but they are incredibly delusional. I am guessing neither of these women ever have been in a fist fight. Is that what they want? It sort of sounds like it. I think they are getting out in front of their headlights and that they think they are invincible. Just some observations.

  13. This is a loyal and formidable opposition. They have money. They have numbers. They have the media behind them. They vote.

    They also have academia behind them, which is a major reason they have not vanished despite an almost unbroken streak of policy failures over the decades. Even if some of them wise up as they get older, academia makes sure the pipeline of stupid people will never run dry.

  14. Liberal rules of fair play: if hillary wins, shut up and be civilized and accept the results. If Trump wins, we will burn it down in the name of democracy and free speech.

  15. You know, an auger is "a tool resembling a large corkscrew, for boring holes in wood."

    So which do you think should be inaugurated first, Hillary's head or her speechifying?
