Hillary Clinton staffers and loyalists took part in a new anti-Trump protest launched today called #MuteMonday.
The hashtag #MuteMonday was created by feminist newsletter Signal Boost and calls for users to unfollow President Trump’s Twitter accounts: @POTUS and @realDonaldTrump, in exchange for following organizations and leaders that support women’s equality and human rights.
The goal of this cyber protest is to “hit Donald Trump where it hurts him most: his ego,” as Tom Perez, former secretary of labor, tweeted to his followers.

Former Clinton aide, Jen Palmieri, also jumped on the bandwagon and told followers, “If you are following @POTUS you are now following Trump. Dump him and follow folks doing good like @UNITEDWEDREAM #mutemonday.”
Countless activists and celebrities have joined the movement and are asking fans and supporters to follow more progressive political organizations and leaders. Actress and model Padma Lakshmi asked her followers to follow Planned Parenthood.

Trump feeds on ratings, followers and crowds. For #MuteMonday, I'm going to unfollow his accounts and follow some people doing good works.
