Despite all of the voices that rallied together yesterday for the Women's March, Donald Trump still managed to wallow in his ignorance.
Watched protests yesterday but was under the impression that we just had an election! Why didn't these people vote? Celebs hurt cause badly.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 22, 2017
Let's back up a few steps here. First of all, suggesting that protesters didn't vote is downright insulting. Second, suggesting that the feelings of being degraded as a woman were only fueled by celebrities is also dismissing a clear and resounding sentiment expressed by the march yesterday.
Celebrities may have helped to rally the forces behind the march, but only because their cries for equality resonated with millions and millions of people.
Also, Trump needs to remember, as Alyssa Milano quickly pointed out, that he himself is a celebrity first and foremost.
Milano wasn't the only one to demand a better response from the newly inaugurated president.

Even the New York Times seemed to subtly chime in.
Crowd scientists say the Women’s March in Washington had 3 times as many people as Donald Trump’s inauguration https://t.co/6oycmOiVGt— The New York Times (@nytimes) January 23, 2017
In Trump's defense, kind of, he did also share a tweet saying that, while he may not support the cause behind the march (women's rights?), he does support our constitutional right to peaceful protest.
Peaceful protests are a hallmark of our democracy. Even if I don't always agree, I recognize the rights of people to express their views.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 22, 2017
