The rally, sponsored by liberal and civil rights groups, including the American Civil Liberties Union, Our Revolution, and Food and Water Watch, aimed to show popular resistance to the president’s agenda ahead of his first speech to a joint session of Congress.
The game is over.’” In an interview with the Washington Examiner after her speech, O’Donnell said she believes Trump deliberately colluded with Russia to hack Democratic emails in an attempt to sway the election.
Most recently, she temporarily changed her Twitter avatar to a photo of her face on the body of Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon in response to public demands that she play Bannon on “Saturday Night Live.” (She has said she has no plans to appear on the show, however.) But it nonetheless provided a glimpse into the spontaneous wave of grassroots activism that has taken off since Trump’s inauguration.
Mary Ford, of Ellicott City, Maryland, has protested outside the White House once a week since the inauguration, each time with a different homemade sign.
She had arrived four hours before the rally began on Tuesday with a placard stating, “Trump’s words and actions are cruel!” Ford, who regularly calls members of Congress encouraging them to resist Trump, said that that particular sign was inspired by Trump’s withdrawal of a policy protecting transgender students’ rights.
