Trump’s initial reactions to the Women’s March yesterday was less than graceful – less than presidential:
Watched protests yesterday but was under the impression that we just had an election! Why didn’t these people vote? Celebs hurt cause badly.
We did vote, Mr. President. Let’s put those numbers out again:

Doing simple math, that’s 73,648,823 Americans that did not vote for Trump. And, a simple graph:
Well, I’m sure we were also “under the impression” that you would be more “presidential” after taking the oath to the highest office in America and attempt to unify the more-than-50% of America that didn’t vote for you.
Although, it seems like someone reminded him that he should post something more “unifying” and probably pointed out the First Amendment to him again.
The First Amendment states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” (Source)
He finally posted 2 hours later about peaceful protesting in general. This undermines whether he heard/acknowledge the message sent forth yesterday by the Women’s March.
In other news, Kellyanne Conway offered an interesting “interpretation” of the statement issued yesterday by the White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer.
“You’re saying it’s a falsehood. And they’re giving — Sean Spicer, our press secretary, gave alternative facts to that,” – Kellyann Conway on Meet the Press
I believe the American people deserves the real facts rather than “alternative facts” or even “make-believe facts” or any kind of facts that do not adhere to reality.
Keep rising, America!
