Sure Trump has so much to say about todays events..

I bet his minions are begging him to keep that twitter finger cool. or maybe he'll make an anti-women speech. What do you think?

Best sign I saw at the march....




** Trump addressing CIA.. brags he was on cover of TIME more than anyone.

I thought he was supposed to thank the CIA not talk about himself. Narcissism runneth over

code word white people

Trump takes office, pledging to empower America's 'forgotten men and women

* Now who do you think he is talking about?*


Trumps Planned Elimination of Violence Against Women Grants Is Pure Cruelty

By Christina Cauterucci

That includes all 25 of the grant programs managed by the Office on Violence Against Women, housed in the Department of Justice. The grants, established by 1994’s Violence Against Women Act and other federal legislation, go to organizations working to prevent domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence, stalking, and elder abuse.

They also support survivors of assault and abuse—some grants are earmarked for transitional housing assistance, legal aid, and trainings to help civil and criminal justice systems better respond to sexual and domestic violence. There are grants specifically targeted at protecting child victims, residents of tribal lands, women with disabilities, children who’ve witnessed the abuse of a parent, and rural women.

These grants are small but crucial countermeasures in a system that’s built to cast doubt on survivors of sexual and intimate-partner violence. Without these programs, states and communities will be less able to help women who’ve been victimized rebuild their lives and hold their perpetrators accountable. Read this list of the grants the Trump administration wants to cut, and see if any of them sounds like a waste of funding.

The proposed elimination of these grants is cruel, and it neatly sums up Trump and his cohort’s dismissive view of women who come forward with sexual and domestic violence allegations. “A man with a well-documented history of sexually assaulting women is about to take over the federal government so it is sadly not surprising that he is gutting programs vital to protecting women from violence,” Nita Chaudhary, co-founder of women’s-rights group UltraViolet said in a statement. “With these cuts, Trump is also making it harder for law enforcement to protect women from predators like himself and members of his senior staff.”

And these planned grant cuts look even more unconscionable when viewed alongside the other entities Trump wants to purge from the Justice Department. He’s proposed drastic cuts to the divisions that work on civil rights and the environment, and he wants to completely axe the Legal Services Corporation, which administers grants for low-income Americans who can’t afford legal assistance. Trump’s plan also eliminates the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services, a small but important advocate for a more just and effective system of U.S. law enforcement. Taken together, the cuts Trump has proposed to balance his budget send a clear message: the most vulnerable and the most in need of justice come last in Trump's America.


* When it rains it pours. No surprise here.

Yes I do , yes I do.

President-elect Donald Trump: 'I don't like tweeting'

* The lies are astounding. He can't live without tweeting*

He tweets in the night, in the wee hours, 24 hours a day. Sometimes more than 5 tweets a day. Oh you LOVE Twitter

Chuck Todd: Trump Insulted Every Living President; Brokaw: He Insulted All Politicians Point Blank

Why are they surprised? Did they think he will be Presidential or decent? He has always been nasty and divisive, nothing new here.


CHUCK TODD: I have to say, it was surprisingly divisive for an inaugural address and I say it this way. We said it was a challenge when you're elected as an outsider, you're elected as a populist and you're channeling what was real anger out there with his supporters. It's tough to be both a unifier and a populist carrier. He went with populism and I think that it is going to play well with his folks but that wasn't the type of inaugural address that was intended to bring this country together...

America first. There was a point there, Lester, where it felt as if he almost was insulting every living president that was sitting next to him in very personal ways.

TOM BROKAW: He was also insulting all of the Republican Congressmen and Senators who were on stage. He has a majority but he went after politicians point blank.

Trump calls himself the unity POTUS..look at what he is doing to "unify" the country.

Under the Trump plan, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting would be privatized.

The National Endowment for the Humanities will be cut entirely

Funding to the Departments of Commerce and Energy would be drastically reduced and many of the programs under their jurisdiction eliminated or moved to another agency

He will eliminate the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services, Violence Against Women Grants and the Legal Services Corporation at the Department of Justice

He is cutting funding for DOJ’s Civil Rights and Environment and Natural Resources divisions.

funding for nuclear physics and advanced scientific computing research would revert to 2008 levels.

He is also doing away with Office of Electricity and the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, as well as scrap the Office of Fossil Energy, which focuses on technologies to reduce carbon dioxide emissions

Funding for the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, the Paris Climate Change Agreement and the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is also in jeopardy

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting in a statement said the plan to privatize would have a “devastating effect on its media service."

Other programs that are on the chopping block:

The Minority Business Development Agency
The Economic Development Administration:
The International Trade Administration
The Manufacturing Extension Partnership
The National Endowment for the Arts
The National Endowment for the Humanities:
The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (privatized)
Department of Justice programs and funding:

The Office of Community Oriented Policing Services

Violence Against Women Grants

Legal Services Corporation

Reduced funding for Civil Rights, Environment, and Natural Resources divisions
