Democratic Lawmakers Join Women’s Marches


Among the hundreds of thousands of people who took to the streets for the “Women’s March on Washington D.C.,” a bevy of Democratic lawmakers are also taking part in the marches and rallies across the U.S., one day after President Trump became the Commander in Chief.

The Hill reports that several Democratic lawmakers who boycotted Trump’s inauguration, such as Sens. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) and Yvette Clarke (D-NY) attended the Women’s March on Washington D.C. or satellite protests taking place in cities throughout the nation.

Other lawmakers like Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii), Patty Murray (D-Wash.), and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY ) also showed their support.

Many of the lawmakers tweeted out messages and pictures of themselves participating in marches in Washington D.C. and their home states.

Congressman John Lewis, who said Trump is not a legitimate president, also refused to go to the inauguration, but went to the Women’s March instead.

Open-borders congressman Luis Gutierrez was there in full force.

A few others, like Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, tweeted out messages to the marchers in support of their protest, even though they did not attend.

Organizers of the march estimated that over a half million attended Saturday’s march. The global estimate is projected to top over 2.5 million people, according to The Olympian.
