Activists claim that Rosie O’Donnell plans to lead a protest outside the White House on Tuesday evening just before Trump delivers his first address to a joint session of Congress.
Several leftist groups are expected to be hosting the rally, which includes Rosie O’Donnell, who will be one of the event’s speakers. The event will take place in the hours before Tuesday’s address to Congress by President Trump —his first since taking office — and is projected to draw thousands of people.
Among the organizations planning to attend the rally in Washington’s Lafayette Park are the American Civil Liberties Union, Soros-funded MoveOn.org, Food & Water Watch, National Nurses United, and Our Revolution.
According to a press release by those behind Tuesday’s ‘Resistance Address,’ the event’s organizers hope to send “a clear message outside of Trump’s front door that his agenda does not represent the values of the American people.”

The following statement was issued by the activist groups:
“The rally will feature speakers from diverse organizations and groups of people who have been impacted and harmed by the Trump administration’s policies, including women, people of color and members of the LGBTQ community, as well as environmental and immigrants’ rights groups.”
O’Donnell and Trump have been publicly feuding for more than a decade over Trump allegedly calling the former daytime talk show host and comedian a “pig,” and also saying during his presidential campaign that O’Donnell “deserved” his verbal insults. O’Donnell proceeded to call Trump “mentally unstable.”
