Women's March Underway in D.C.: ‘Trump Is an Unstable Penis’

The anti-Trump Women’s March is underway in D.C. and in cities across the nation Saturday, as self-described feminists gather to protest both President Trump and his Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett.

“We’re holding socially distant actions across the country to send an unmistakable message about the fierce opposition to Trump and his agenda, including his attempt to fill Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat,” the Women’s March said in its official call to action.

NOW: Women's March returns to D.C. with 17 days to go before election… https://t.co/MYbtoAQdV2

A collection of anti-Trump signs have been spotted across the nation’s capital, including a lewd banner reading, “Trump is an unstable penis”:

Signs reading, “Dump Trump and his gang of Putin,” “Free Melania,” “My favorite season is the FALL of the patriarchy,” and “Keep your rosaries off my ovaries” were also spotted in the crowds:

Crowd gathered at Freedom Plaza is predominantly white, markedly different from the diversity of the Floyd protests that happened across the city this summer. But Black women are here. #WomensMarch2020pic.twitter.com/GUsnNTdGTN

“No confirmation, ‘til inauguration!” Demonstrators are speaking out against the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett and want to encourage people to vote. The plan is to march to City Hall. #WomensMarch2020@wbaltv11pic.twitter.com/HYeyXJQk9o

HAPPENING NOW: About a dozen people are marching in Battle Creek for the #WomensMarch2020 to oppose the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. They say they’re also advocating for the #BlackLivesMatter movement and the LGBTQ+ community. @WOODTVpic.twitter.com/ZkqTZr7gqn

Notably, the official website of the Women’s March also states that it supports the Black Lives Matter movement’s call to defund the police, asserting that it is a “feminist issue” because “black, poor, immigrant and undocumented women are disproportionately targeted, abused and murdered by police.”
