Why has Trump pissed off a million women? About the #WomensMarch

Image
Earlier on Facebook, I came across a post by my friend, Gwen who was wondering something about President Trump. Three days after his Inauguration and two days after the #WomensMarch that attracted two million people in the US alone and over one million in countries such as the United Kingdom, the whole of Scandinavia (Norway, Sweden, Denmark), Italy, Germany , France while outside of Europe, in Asia, Australia and even Antarctica.


Here are Gwen's questions:-"I really don't know what Trump did to piss off a million women. What has he done or what part of his agenda should I be concerned about as a woman? Which decisions don't reflect the will of the people? What has he said that's divisive?" While she did not vote for Trump in the primaries, Gwen is not the only Republican who's wondering about all this.

While some members of the Left are still getting all indignant about what media we should / shouldn't watch / read / listen to and are still holding grudges against more established Dem politicians, Bernie Sanders is working his way through the Bag of Dicks (Dem) Party. As in, he is working to CHANGE IT, to make it MORE VIABLE for / more IN TUNE with the middle and working class(es) 'cos let's be honest, so far, the Dem Party has acted like a detached bag of dicks. 



When I see Chuck Schumer on the Rachel Maddow Show being all fired up about opposing Trump and 'holding his feet to the fire' with regards to anything he said during his campaign (his promises to benefit the middle / working class), I see Bernie WORKING TO CHANGE THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.



When I hear Senator Schumer use an expression like 'we'll hold his feet to the fire' several times, I hear Bernie Sanders WORKING TO CHANGE THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY. When I hear Sen. Schumer talk about what Bernie Sa…
