|MUIR: Let me just ask you while we’re standing outside, could you hear the voices from the Women’s March here in Washington? We know there were more than a million people who turned out, and you are their president now too.|
TRUMP: That’s true.
MUIR: Could you hear them from the White House?
TRUMP: No, I couldn’t hear them. The crowds were large, but you will have a large crowd on Friday, too, which is mostly pro-life people. You’re going to have a lot of people coming on Friday. And I will say this, and I didn’t realize this. But I was told. You will have a very large crowd of people. I don’t know as large or larger. Some people said it will be larger. Pro-life people and they say the press doesn’t cover them.
MUIR: I don’t want to compare crowd sizes again. I – I—I–
|Wearing a black p***y hat, she repeatedly dropped the F-bomb and then told the audience she had considered “blowing up the White House”.|
|The sudden popularity in this particular shade, yarn shop owners say, is due to the Pussyhat Project, a national effort to flood the nation's capital with women wearing pink, cat-ear hats at the Women's March on Washington on Jan. 21.|
The project's goal is to make a visual statement on the first day of President-elect Donald Trump's administration to show that women stand united when it comes to protecting their rights, said the Pussyhat Project's cofounder, Jayna Zweiman.
"It's about the knitting, but it's also about so much more," Zweiman said, noting that hats can be hand knit, crocheted or sewn. They used the term "pussyhat" for the project as a play on words referencing the way Trump bragged about groping unsuspecting women.
We love the clever wordplay of “pussyhat” and “pussycat,” but yes, “pussy” is also a derogatory term for female genitalia. We chose this loaded word for our project because we want to reclaim the term as a means of empowerment. In this day and age, if we have pussies we are assigned the gender of “woman.” Women, whether transgender or cisgender, are mistreated in this society. In order to get fair treatment, the answer is not to take away our pussies, the answer is not to deny our femaleness and femininity, the answer is to demand fair treatment. A woman’s body is her own. We are honoring this truth and standing up for our rights.

|It appears this Illinois woman can't bear to see President Obama leave office — so she's taking him with her wherever she goes. - (She) has become well-known on the streets of Chicago for carrying around a life-sized cardboard cutout of President Obama... "I take [him] with me whenever I can. He actually folds up so it's very travel friendly."|
|"I was raised by a single mother, and to me, Barack Obama meant that possibilities exist," (the woman) explained. "Things were possible, and dreams could really come true."|
|"People get really excited about this Barack Obama cut out," she said, explaining that people often approach her, and tell her their own experiences relating to Obama's presidency. "He's gotten a lot of damage because people just want to hold him, and carry him, and hug him."|
|I was walking home alone through the National Mall last evening in my black patent leather shoes, neatly pressed red and white striped trousers, navy-blue tailcoat with the lapels trimmed in red and white stripes, and feeling well at ease under my matching Ten-Gallon bucket hat banded in white stars. I was minding my own business and whistling the Spangled Banner, when I felt the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end...|
|If foreclosure is imminent, and you are considering a deed in lieu of foreclosure, some lenders are willing to offer “Cash for Keys,” whereby the lender will actually pay you to vacate the home in a timely fashion. The money you receive in exchange is intended to pay for your relocation costs.|
