Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer held a rally on the steps of the Supreme Court building and ran into some mic trouble, so Trump took the opportunity to call them a “mess” before adding “just like Dem party!” Keep it classy, Mr. President.
“Celebs hurt cause badly,” Trump tweeted in reaction to the Women’s March. Yes, because how dare celebrities have a voice that they use for causes they believe in like all the other millions of people who attended the protest.
According to Politico, Trump was most upset a woman (Melissa McCarthy) had portrayed Press Secretary Sean Spicer on Saturday Night Live. The outlet reported, “…the unflattering send-up by a female comedian was not considered helpful for Spicer’s longevity in the grueling, high-profile job.”

We will not forget.
