President Donald Trump hit back Sunday at thousands of liberal women who marched in Washington and other cities around the country the day before to protest him being elected president, taunting them with a simple inquiry: “Why didn’t these people vote?”
Taking to his social media platform, the 45th president of the United States slammed far-left celebrities like Ashley Judd and soon-to-be senior citizen Madonna, who were at the forefront of Saturday’s march.
Trump tweeted: “Watched protests yesterday but was under the impression that we just had an election! Why didn’t these people vote? Celebs hurt cause badly.”
To be clear — a necessity when much of the media is on a mission to undermine his presidency — Trump stressed that he supports “the rights of people to express their views.”
“Peaceful protests are a hallmark of our democracy. Even if I don’t always agree, I recognize the rights of people to express their views,” he said in a follow-up tweet.
Peaceful protests are a hallmark of our democracy. Even if I don’t always agree, I recognize the rights of people to express their views.

As for how “peaceful” events were on Saturday, it looks as if things got a little rowdier than the press let on, according to a video from Media Research Center:
