    He is such a child! Lol at him only talking about only t.v ratings and not about the fact that those who came out to protest against him even in the same DC where more that those who went to his inauguration , not to talk of the numbers across the US. Let him talk about how the Protests yesterday have been revealed as the largest protest to ever follow a new Presidents inauguration. Also let him talk about the low turn out of his inauguration and him being so petty he had to send his Press Secretary to have a Press Conference anout attendance lol and start lying about the numbers whereas there’s evidence everywhere to say it’s not so . It’s amazing how bothered he is by the low turn out for his inauguration, how can you become President and the first Press Conference that your Press Secretary has is to tell blatant lies about the numbers while everyone has satellite shots as well as pictures of the sparsely attended inauguration. The crowd at the parade was so sparse , there were empty seats all through . An adult will just ignore it and move on but because he is so insecure the fact that he had such a low turn out and those who came out to protest where more than those who came to elevate him is really hurting his ego. Also yes those people came out during the election which is why he lost the Popular( people’s vote by 2.8 M . America is in trouble if this is the type of nonesense it’s new President wants to go around fighting about in Twitter or otherwise .

    Thank you , If this was Obama he would be trying to calm people and let them know everyone’s rights will be protected but the Orange man is focusing on Twitter rants against celebs and t.v ratings lol As bad as our Buhari is , I can’t imagine him having Twitter fights( or another fights ) with celebs like maybe Omotola or Rita Dominic. It’s so ridiculous ! Hiss

    For those asking what the women are protesting for , it’s not just against Trump but the direction of he’s policies and that of the republican party. Many of those are aimed at reducing women’s rights over their own bodies . So it’s not about what women don’t have yet but him and republicans wanting to take back what women fought for decades to get .

    E.g Paul Ryan is sponsoring a Bill that will Allow Rapists to Sue their Victims to Prevent them from Aborting a pregnancy which is as a result of the rape! Can you imagine such women and sensible Men here?! What right does a Rapist have to sue his victim and force her to have the baby? Imagine the audacity . Not only that one once the victim has the baby , the rapist can sue for custody and visitation rights( once out of jail if he was jailed)!

    This means Rape Victims will be Forced to co- parent with the Men who raped and violated them ! And you expect women and sensible men to seat around till its their own turn or their daughters!

    • Ade

      January 22, 2017 at 6:31 pm

      Wow that’s terrifying ! That’s forcing a Rape victim to not only keep the baby but force her to have the rapist in her life for ever ! That’s liking raping her Over and over ! Because once you have a child with someone you are stuck with them for ever esp in a system that allows the rapist to sue for custody rights!

      How an any human being come up with such an evil bill!

      Trump people don’t like and they voted against you which is why you lost popular vote . Already statistically Trump has the worst approval rating of any new President, even Bush beat him and the no of people that came out yesterday confirmed that. American’s Democracy is crap.

      Do you know that Ivanka’s Brother in-law was also at the Women’s March he he he that says it all. Imagine the Brother of Ivanka’s husband whom Trump gave position with nepotism is against him and Marched with the women yesterday. That must pain him die

      @Yes guys, that’s an actual bill sponsored by Paul Ryan as unbelievable as it sounds. You know them to well, come up with crap then try and twist the words in the Bible to justify it. I’m not sure how far the bill as gone though but hopefully with all this awareness it will never see the light of day.

      Google his name and see it, the renewed fear is because now the republicans have both the Presidency and the house now thereby making it easier to pass such evil bills. The fact that a so called leader would sponsor that type of bill is truly worrying and in US for that matter!

      Ngozi , is this for real ??? Americans are in trouble ! I’m sorry for them, this is so upsetting – a setback for women everywhere.

    • get your facts right people

      January 23, 2017 at 7:27 pm

      Guys, its important not to repeat rumours. and actually talk about facts. Everything you just wrote here Ngozi, is false. Paul Ryan didn’t sponsor a bill giving rapists the right to sue their victims. The act you’re speaking of is called the Sanctity of Life Act from 4 years back actually. and it didn’t pass into law. Google the act and read about it. Moreover, it was more about the regulation of IVF which is a very tricky legal minefield (take for example, the fact that a woman can be forced to pay child support for a child she did not conceive e.g. Sherri Shepherd). Lastly, is Paul Ryan your issue or Trump? Try to separate out rumours and hyperbole abeg. Also, keep in mind that MANY women are pro-life and anti-abortion. For all the women who marched in Washington, think about all the women who didn’t march.
      As for attendances at inauguration, please google the article that delineates numbers for all inaugurations that have been open to the public. Obama had the highest for sure, but that doesn’t mean that Clinton, who had some of the lowest numbers wasn’t the people’s choice.
      OK final point – those complaining that the electoral college is what elected trump need to understand that this is the system the American people have chosen. So trump is the product of the system they chose. If they don’t like it, they have the right to change it. Yet election after election they have not changed it. So what does that tell you?

    ….Long epistle writer and others that intend to write more..even shoe burners, until you guys understand that the true owners of The United States of America just took their country back..nothing you write or scream would make sense. Take a min to think about this(who voted for Donald Trump), you would see beyond Trump..you would also see the rural white folks and some Blacks(yes! Blacks) especially the working class who pay more tax for having 2 jobs or for even picking up extra shifts decided enough was enough.

    @ Ade, you need to respect democracy and there’s nothing you can do about Trumph! You don’t always get your family members to support you in all the things you do! Do you?
    You need to see the big picture!!! Best wishes!!!!

    If Trump is really hated as these protesters want us to believe, then how come he is president and Clinton is not?

    Clinton should have beat Trump at the Electoral college if she was that popular and the people’s will.

    All candidates knew the rule of the election and played by it. Trump won because his message resonated better with the REAL Americans. That message illegals and radical Islamist did not like and hated Trump for. But they don’t matter because the true Americans have spoken.

    America’s founding fathers were truely wise in creating the Electoral college – such genius! Clinton having illegals vote for her didn’t matter. Imagine if we had such in Nigeria, almajiris and child brides wouldn’t be winning elections for the north, as kwankwaso boasted. And you know why? Because they won’t matter.

    What rights exactly are american women fighting 4? Women in the middle east shld be the ones fighting for rights. They are angry at comments he made in private that were made public. Everyone makes vulgar comments in private so why pick on Trump? Madonna and Ashley judd are idiots and shld be put to order. Obama loves rappers who have very vulgar lyrics and he even invites them to the white house. These women are only angry because he defeated a woman in the elections. PERIOD!!!!

      @ Andrew, they are fighting for the right to kill babies, some of which are female I might add. Lol @ epistle writers. Well you guys have four years to develop your writing skills cos Trump is gonna be there for 4 years and an additional 4 if the silent majority still want him.

      The silent majority did not win, he lost popular vote and only won the electoral vote which has nothing to do with silent Majority.

      Don’t mind Trump haters that have refused to see the true picture. They can wail and wail, Trump got four years. And would be rewarded with more four if he performs satisfactorily.

      January 22, 2017 at 8:24 pm

      Andrew is right! All the comments are things he made in private that just saw the light of day. I am beginning to see Trump in another light sef. Who haven’t said some really nasty things that must not be heard in public before?

      Even A Real Nigerian would have admitted to feeling horny sometime and wanting a male companion but we all know that mustn’t get on BN. Don’t be fooled, this same people marching against him did vote for him.

      Maybe it’s not the world that’s not ready for a female leader….maybe it’s the women that are not ready to lead yet.

    @Ngozi, stop spreading a falsehood. Paul Ryan never sponsored any bill that will allow rapist to sue their victims and stop them from having an abortion if the rape results in pregnancy. For starters the bill had 40 co-sponsors, and the bill only seeks to treat any foetus/embryo that is 8weeks old as a human being and grant it full constitutional right. In other words, you can’t abort an embryo after two months. This is because an embryo develops a functioning heart and you can feel it beat after 8weeks; it would be ethically wrong to kill it right?
    If a woman gets pregnant as a result of rape, why should it take her more than two months to decide to abort the pregnancy? Everybody who has a conscience should support this bill. Embryos are humans too. That they can’t speak doesn’t make them less human.Animals don’t speak but we deem it necessary to protect their rights. Shouldn’t we do same for embryos? Justin Bieber’s mother wanted to abort him, but for divine intervention, she decided not to. That’s one of the reasons why Justin Bieber is against abortion. Abortion is plain wrong. If a woman is old enough to have sex, she should be mature enough to have the baby and nurture it.

      To the person making excuses that it was because Obama was first black President ( still doesn’t account for the higher numbers he had the 2nd term while Trump was busy spreading rumors that he wasn’t born in America ) Why couldn’t your liar- chief just admit that rather than his Press Sec standing on a podium to used to sharek important news to lie that Trump had more than Obama and in fact he had the highest turnout ever for any president! A man who can’t be honest even in the most irrelevant things is pathetic. Now one of his campaign people say it’s not exactly a lie but “alternative facts” lmao seems Thats the new word for lies

    To the epistle writer up there claiming Trump’s inauguration had a low turnout, go and do your research, Trump had more turn out than Clinton and Bush. Of course Obama set a record, his first inauguration was a historic event,he was the first black president so it’s expected. And what exactly do you mean by he lost the popular vote? Trump won more states and counties than Hilary. I guess facts don’t matter to some people.

    Wants to reduce people’s ability To protest especially when police are unjust!!!!
    I don’t expect buhari victims to understand human rights anyway
    You take the bullshit without fighting back
    That’s why nigerian problems never get sympathy worldwide, because you all staying quiet.

To them God put him there to stop gay people lol a man whose wife has naked pictures with another woman (madam First Lady) all over the Internet and already says he will leave supreme courts decision allowing gay marriage,But you know Nigerians are sanctimonious, hypocrites so once they hear anti gay and abortion he’s a hero ,they won’t even bother to ask details and do research . Some people arguing here don’t even know about electoral college or the fact that the first Press Conference given by the Press Sec in this new administration was to lie! Who starts his term with lies? Especially lies on frivolous things just because of his hurt ego? Yeah the egotistical baby the electoral college has imposed on Americans

      Nigerians are lukewarm about their political passion.
      They don’t follow up. They don’t all participate.
      Rich people think they’re all set, poor people think they don’t matter
      We don’t care who is senator or representative.
      The reverse is the case in America
      The richest man will do his best to ensure that the president that the officer who will guarantee him the lowest tax is elected

    And mind you ignorant people,
    The March, strategically happened after the election because the people respect die process and constituonal authority – we accept that our flawed electoral college system provided a loophole through which that sham of a man was elected but we respect the country.
    But we are not a silent few and we will not sit down and take his policies.
    We will organize and we will fight. Clandestine or openly!

    We will make sure the midterm elections in2 years are to our benefit
    Those who didn’t vote (49%) of eligible voters, some because they didn’t like either candidate , and some because they just didn’t care have sat up
    Those with voters remorse who have now realized that the obamacare they were fighting against is actually the ACa healthcare which has saved their life joined the March.

    Those who are affected by any other (not necessarily Republican, ) but just hateful and evil policy that trump and his allies planning o put in place joined to March

    Some Democrats just didn’t believe such an unfit candidate would win so they didn’t rally enough.

    The March means we will resist .

    The March was slo to let racists and hateful Americans know that they are still on their own and although trump has given them the confidence to come out in the open, they are still on their own.
    That there are more enlightened people now than before and whites too who will not support hate and Democrat cities will serve as sanctuary cities to victims of any cruel immigration laws they bring
