Scenes from a pussy riot

The Women’s March wasn’t that. There were zillions of signs, and only a tiny minority were professionally done. Instead, nearly all the signs were homemade, apparently heartfelt expressions of deep feelings on the part of the marchers. Some of the signs seemed angry, but the people carrying them mostly did not. Many of the signs were all over the lot, plain-vanilla denunciations of Donald Trump or Republicans; there were immigration-based signs, gun control-based signs, Muslim rights-based signs, signs about Trump’s combover.

But many, many signs were rooted in the “Access Hollywood” video — a fixation which suggests protesters will try to make the video a recurring theme in resistance to President Trump. If that’s the case, then here, from the Women’s March, is a preview of things to come.
