Women's March Melissa Benoist

Women's March: Did Supergirl Star 'Steel' the Sign-Making Show?

Among the thousands upon thousands of people who populated the Women’s March across numerous cities on Saturday, there were more than a few celebrities — and Supergirl‘s Melissa Benoist may have come toting the most super sign of them all.

Crowds that were both mighty and mighty impressive assembled on Saturday in Washington, D.C. as well as Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, St. Louis, Austin and dozens of other locations (on multiple continents), as part of the aprés-inauguration movement that was set in motion on Nov. 9, the day after Donald Trump won the presidential election.

Benoist’s DCTV pals Caity Lotz, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes and Keiynan Lonsdale, plus America Ferrera (Superstore), Amber Tamblyn, Amy Poehler, Amy Schumer, Gillian Anderson, Ming-Na Wen (Agents of SHIELD), Mandy Moore (This Is Us), Erin Richards (Gotham), Jane Fonda (Grace and Frankie) and Melissa Rauch (The Big Bang Theory), are but a handful of the celebrities who participated in marches, as sampled in the photos at bottom. But Supergirl‘s Benoist had a message for the freshly minted commander-in-chief that was both direct and played off her Girl of Steel persona, evoking the explicit and inflammatory sound bite Trump was heard uttering during the taping of a 2005 appearance on Access Hollywood.

Check out Benoist’s NSFW (if you work Saturday hours, that is) sign below,, then tell us if you’ve been blown away by the attendance at the Women’s March. Again, warning: language.

  1. Nothing but love for any of these women. March on!

  2. Phun says:

    So proud of all the people out there for the WOMENS MARCH including friends and family members!

  3. KET says:

    All of the pictures coming from #WomensMarch all across the country, and the world, are just so inspiring. By comparison, yesterday seemed like a funeral for humanity; glad to see that it was just a reality show illusion.

  4. fiberlicious says:

    Melissa’s sign definitely wins the already winning day!

  5. Elle says:

    It’s ignorant and embarrassing. Funny how you don’t show the anti Trump hate speech that is in this March. We live in a free country. We have the same rights as men. They need to use their star power to help women and young girls in countries where women are truly in need of their rights.

    • Joey says:

      You’re delusional if you think women have the same rights as men in America. Why don’t you cite some sources to prove that they do.
      .
      And before you get on me for not confronting your statement about helping women in countries where they may have fewer rights than those of American women, the situations are not mutually exclusive. You can fight for equal rights for women in America, and in Saudi Arabia, or the Congo, or Indonesia, or whatever other country.

      • Elle says:

        Tell me how we don’t have the same rights. Don’t even mention the so called wage gap. That’s due to men usually have more experience and education. It’s illegal to pay men more. Get a clue. We have the same rights. If a man is 40 has worked his entire life and is educated, he is going to make more than a 25 yr old woman who is just starting out. It would be the same if the positions were reversed. Anyway, Blame Obama. He did not pay women the same as men. Democrats had complete control for 2 years. Why didn’t they fix any of these so called issues?

        • Colleen says:

          Oh dear.

        • Mar says:

          You are really quite delusional if you think men get paid more because they have more experience and education. I have worked with men who get paid more than I did even though I had the experience and education. Just cause they were men.

        • Vanessa Maharaj says:

          You are really quite delusional!

        • Joey says:

          I was going to provide a serious reply to this, but since others have already done so, even though you’ve failed to even slightly alter your position when presented with evidence, so I guess I shouldn’t even bother. I did notice, however, that you did fail to provide any sources of evidence of the claims you made in your original post.

          • Elle says:

            I saw no evidence. Just opinions based on fake news. My views are based on confirmed facts. I saw no one else post proof of their claims. You can google too. Google Obama white house doesn’t pay female staffers as much as men. It’s all there.

          • Joey says:

            @Elle: You keep replying to comments without giving any sources but you say you’re giving facts. You haven’t. I’m starting to think you don’t really know what the word means.

          • Elle says:

            My facts are common knowledge and can easily be googled. I don’t see anyone else here posting anything to support their claims but I have to? Nope. Sorry. I don’t have the time or the desire. But you can google this stuff. I’ve googled the lies made here. All lies. Keep trying though.

        • Complete control? You seem to know absolutely nothing about your own government. Republicans had a majority congress that BLOCKED ALMOST EVERYTHING. You can’t be that ignorant that you haven’t heard even once over the last 8 years that congress was mostly Republican. NOW we have a republican President, republican majority House and Senate so the republicans have 100% power so any failure is 100% on them, unlike Obama. Hell, Obama was blocked on absolutely everything, even just appointing new heads of various government bodies (something no congress has ever bothered blocking to this degree). Hell, many of those selections were compromises made to Republicans and they still blocked it, just to be difficult.

          And I’m not eve mentioning when the Republicans almost shut down the government a couple years back just to be difficult. So, how exactly did Obama have “complete power”?

          • Elle says:

            Like I said, Obama had control for the first two years. He could have done anything he wanted. Trump has total control now which is what the people wanted because we voted that way.

          • lrdslvrhnd says:

            For the first two years, Obama was still trying to compromise with the Republicans. He didn’t want to ram anything down anyone’s throats just because he could. He wanted to come up with stuff which *both* sides could live with… but the Republicans refused to budge. Except, often, to move backwards. In typical negotiations, one side starts at X, the other side starts at Z, and they gradually move towards a Y they can both live with. While Obama was President, Republicans started at X, Democrats started at Z. Democrats tried to compromise with Y, Republicans moved the goalposts to W. Every. Single. Damned. Time.
            .
            Unfortunately, it took Obama 2 years to realize the Republicans were simply not willing to compromise… by which time they took control of Congress and could block him.
            .
            Yes, he *could* have done anything he wanted. But he didn’t *want* to do that simply because he could.

          • Elle says:

            That’s the most ridiculous excuse ever. Obama practically set a record with the amount of executive orders he made. He had absolutely no problem doing whatever he wanted.

          • lrdslvrhnd says:

            You’re right, he did practically set a record… for fewest EOs by a President. Fewer than Bush Jr. Fewer than Clinton. Fewer than Reagan, Carter, Nixon, Eisenhower, Truman, Hoover… in fact, you have to go allll the way back to Grover Cleveland to find a 2-term President with fewer EOs than him. And of the 1-term Presidents, you have to go back to Arthur (or, alternatively, Cleveland’s first go) to find a President with fewer than half the number of EOs (meaning that one could easily extrapolate all of them ending up with more EOs had they had two full terms). So, definitely the fewest in the past 120 years other than Bush Sr., Ford, & JFK, all of whom had one (or fewer) terms.
            .
            So, yeah. Revisionist history there just a smidge. He didn’t *want* to rule by fiat. He wanted to work *with* the Republicans, especially at first… and they weren’t willing.
            .
            Also, the “people” didn’t vote Trump in. The Electoral College did. Or are you forgetting the minor detail that Clinton won the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes?

          • Elle says:

            We did vote Trump and he won. The electoral college was made so that heavily populated areas in a few states can’t control what happens to the entire nations. He won more counties and more states. I still say he won the popular vote. Many of Hillary’s votes came from states that don’t check ID when people vote. You can’t verify votes without ID. They’ll never be valid in my eyes.

          • Patty says:

            Wrong, Elle. Obama signed far fewer EOs (279) than both Bush43 (291) and Clinton (364).

        • stop proving your ignorance!

    • Pamela says:

      Well said, it’s very sad.

    • Carrie says:

      Your ignorance is showing. This isn’t an anti-Trump thing, it’s about empowerment and unification. How can it be said that women have the same rights when men are still paid more and some old guys in Washington are trying to tell us what we can and can’t do with our own bodies? There’s nothing wrong with these celebrities marching for what they believe in. They’re just people like everyone else, and how do you know that they aren’t using their celebrity to help women in other countries?

      • Haz says:

        Wow I can’t believe you are stupid enough to even type that. This girl shows hers was made of steel in her sex tape she leaked for press coverage.

      • Tom says:

        Watching a live feed, at least a 3rd of the signs are Anti Trump. Like the one Super Girl is holding up above. Saying this March isn’t about Trump is intellectually dishonest.

        • Bella says:

          If someone doesn’t like being known for grabbing women’s pussies, perhaps he shouldn’t brag about it while his microphone is switched on. Or at all.

          And if he does, he and his supporters shouldn’t be surprised if people object loud and long and forever to said grabbage.

          • RD says:

            He didn’t know it was a hot mic when he made those unfortunate comments…they weren’t meant to be public. Unlike all the vile things said today at these marches around the globe by so-called adults…was really nothing more than hate-filled rhetoric! And where’s the outrage against Bill and Hillary Clinton? Those two and most liberals attacked his victims as liars! What a bunch of hypocrites! Plus the people at the march looked like a bunch of pampered individuals with their designers duds and Starbucks in hand! Their faux outrage at Trump is just that….fake! Why not go to most Middle Eastern countries where the women and gays have no rights…to get a real dose of inequality! All this fear-mongering from the left is beyond disgusting….it’s a flat-out lie! All this talk today of supposedly spreading love was no more than a march of hate…of everyone that doesn’t 100% agree with the Democrats….not very tolerant people…huh?

          • Leesa says:

            Its time to show more respect towards women and its time for people to let women be in total control of their own bodies and their own healthcare decisions. A woman’s body is her own and people need to mind their own business! Women need to support each other and speak out against any wrong doing. We women are fabulous!

          • Elle says:

            Yes, all of us women are and awesome and deserve to be respected. That includes the women who voted for Trump. By marching against Trump you are marching against the women who voted for him. Our voices were heard. You had your chance. You lost. You can “protest” all you want, our voices were heard. Our votes matter and nothing is going to change.

        • Elle says:

          The riots were planned and paid for as was this so called March. Isn’t it a little convenient how the rioters are nowhere near the precious celebs? It’s all fake and only morons believe it. They had freaking ads on line describing the pay and where to show up. Soros is at it again.

          • Oh yeah, there’s no way, other than paying people, to get people to protest the insanity that is a Trump presidency. Yup, everyone is just super duper happy. Everyone Trump insults said to Soros “But we love him, he really knows how to grab a pussy and he’s famous so he’s allowed!!!” and Soros, then, pulled out the cash. I wonder how much he had to pay those Mexicans Trump called criminals and rapists to go to this fake protest??? I mean, why would anyone willingly be upset about abortion, birth control and health care being dismantled/destroyed unless they got paid the “big bucks”?

            Yup, all protests by left wing, or progressive people is fake. They all love Trump. I mean, Trump was a Democrat for decades.

          • Elle says:

            Soros funded BLM. He funded the women’s march aka Trump protest. It was to be for Hillary’s victory rally. LOL There were ads on line across the country calling for people to come to these so called protests and march. They were paid. It was Soros. Believe what you want. I don’t care.

            It’s funny how upset people get when someone states a fact. It’s a fact that illegals are criminals. They are here illegally. That’s a crime. Many of them are also violent criminals. Trump never said anything that wasn’t true. Check the states on crimes committed by illegals.

            Obamacare has already destroyed the healthcare system. Trump is trying to fix it. Obamacare was one of the top reasons that people voted for Trump. Are you denying that too? People can’t afford their meds. I know someone who had to pay $400 deductible which she can’t afford. She’s on disability. Her meds went from $20 to $260 this month. Yes, it’s real affordable. Many people are still not covered because they did not expand medicaid in all states. There are people who haven’t had insurance in years because they can’t get jobs and don’t qualify for medicaid and/or live in states where medicaid wasn’t expanded. You act as if Trump is going to ban birth control and outlaw abortion. He’s trying to make health insurance truly affordable for everyone.

            I’m aware that Trump was a Democrat. That’s why people like him. He’s more moderate than left or right.

          • Mary says:

            Wow your ignorance is astounding but by reading your remarks I clearly see that you have no empathy whatsoever toward other humans. Sad that you live such a inclusive life that you can’t see others. You make blanket statements that have no facts, I guess you follow Trump and his people view of alternative facts, otherwise know as lies. You make a perfect stepford Trump robot who only spews what he has and in most cases has been proven to be lies. Knowledge is power you might want to educate yourself.

          • Elle says:

            I posted facts. It’s a fact that the organizations who were at the rally were funded by Soros. It’s in the New York times. I am well educated and well informed. I am not easily led by a targeted attempt to sway people like you apparently were. The main stream media colluded with the DNC to steal the nomination from Bernie and tried everything to they could including giving Hillary debate questions early, to try to help her win. Those are facts in wikileaks. I care about people. You apparently don’t care about my vote. We all had the same right to vote. We voted. Trump won. It’s over. Keep whining and complaining because you’re doing nothing but helping Trump. The more liberals attack him, the more popular he will become.

          • Sam Hunt says:

            Elle, I do not think these people realize know that both John McCain and Mitt Romney paid their female staffers more than their male staffers as to where Obama paid his male staffers more than his female staffers. So, yes, in deed females can and do make equal or more than men. It is not impossible. I think they also forgot the Equal Pay Act of 1963 that was passed by JFK.

          • Elle says:

            Great examples. Thank you. They’ll just ignore it. They always do.

        • Elle says:

          Thank you. I see more Anti Trump stuff than Pro Woman. The anti woman thing is so dumb. First they say Trump loves women too much, now he supposedly hates them. Which is it? You can’t be both.

        • Using the word “intellectually” and the name Trump in the same sentence is intellectually dishonest.

          • Elle says:

            Sure, Trump is an idiot. You have to be a moron to be able to build an empire, be a billionaire and become President.

          • Tom says:

            He was smart enough to beat Hillary with half the money. He was smart enough to play a biased media for air time. He was smart enough to win against all odds. But hey keep underestimating him, its worked so well so far for you.

      • RD says:

        It was totally an anti-Trump March! Did you not hear deranged Ashley Judd with her disgusting speech about Trump and his daughter? And what about loony Madonna threatening Trump’s life?

        • Elle says:

          Ashley is unhinged. She should be locked up.

        • Kim says:

          The speech/poem was created by a 19 year old Tennessee girl. Judd was reciting it.

          • RD says:

            It doesn’t matter if she wrote it or not…she recited it for the world to hear. It was beyond disgusting, and it definitely shouldn’t have been spoken in front of children!

        • Mary says:

          Wow seriously. I think you are being a hypocrite. It obviously didn’t bother you when trump bragged about being a sexual predator but you find her offensive. Madonna did not threaten his life, but it was okay when Trump said the second amendment people could take care of Hillary. Gee I hate to inform you of this because it goes against your narrative but many Women who actually voted for the fool were there. This march had many components to it and yes a few were anti-Trump but the majority was standing up for individuals rights like Women, minorities, LGBT, the less fortunate. Sad really that many of you show such lake of empathy.

      • Elle says:

        No one cares what you do with your body. It’s about money. Obama has spent us into a hole we will never be able to come out of. Cutting funding for unnecessary programs like planned parenthood is a good start to getting the country out of the hole that Obama dug. Planned parenthood is in the baby killing business. They do very little family planning or women’s health screenings. Those can be done at your local GP. They have free services for those in need. PP is not needed. The left loves it because they throw parties for them. Yes, PP has so much money they throw parties for celebs. Google it.

        • Becca says:

          You’re completely delusional. Maybe if you looked at actual news sites instead of just Fox News you would see that no federal money goes to abortions (which also don’t kill babies fyi). You also seem to have a fundamental misunderstanding of what a GP does or is. If they don’t care about what I do with my body, why ban abortion? Federal money doesn’t go into it. Why care about what bathroom I use? Federal money makes no difference regarding the bathrooms? You know what would drastically change our debt situation? Cutting our military presence in areas that we have no business in. Also having billionaires like The Orange One actually pay taxes instead of finding insane loopholes and then bragging about not contributing to the country he wants to run.

          • Elle says:

            The government funds PP. The major business of PP is abortions. People don’t want the government(tax payer money) to fund abortions. Pulling troops out of Iraq like Obama did is the exact reason why Isis has grown. You can’t pull troops out. We need the military. We don’t need to fund PP, climate change crap or any other useless liberal interest.People are so ridiculous about the taxes. Trump did nothing illegal. Everyone uses tax breaks. Why aren’t you offended by all of the illegal things that Hillary did? She should be in jail. Trump did nothing illegal. People were fed up with Obama and liberal policies which is why he won.

        • Angela says:

          Yeah, no, everything you just said about PP is wrong. Very, very wrong.
          .
          Also, regarding the “baby killing” comment, you guys who support defunding and closing Planned Parenthood DO know that doing so won’t stop women from having abortions, right? They’ll just have them in less safe and professional places. If people really want abortion to stop, they need to actually support things like sex ed in schools, and allowing women access to birth control, and funding to help women who’ve been raped , and support for adoption centers, and so on. It’s been proven when you allow things like that, the abortion rate goes down. All you’ll get if you defund Planned Parenthood and put up those BS restrictions that some states try to pass regarding abortion si a spike in women having them.

        • Joey says:

          “Planned Parenthood is in the baby-killing business.”
          .
          So if abortions are 3% of what Planned Parenthood does (easily findable, citable fact), do they then track down and murder newborns? How do they regularly kill babies?
          .
          “Obama has spent us into a hole we will never be able to come out of.”
          .
          While we are in a deficit right now, I hope you’re aware that our current deficit is much smaller than the one we were facing when Obama took office in 2009. This is, of course, after George W. Bush came into office in 2001 with an enormous surplus.

          • Elle says:

            Abortions are the majority of what PP does. They also sell baby parts and kill babies born live but I guessed you missed those videos.

            Obama has left us with record debt. The 4th worst GDP growth in history. The debt soared to $20 trillion under Obama. That’s 86%.

          • Joey says:

            I’m sure you’ll disregard the facts that those videos were completely doctored, and a Republican-led coalition in Texas sought an investigation into Planned Parenthood over them. Their conclusion? The group who made the doctored videos lied and were then prosecuted over the videos. These were pro-life Republicans who came to this conclusion, but it seems like facts can’t seem to penetrate your skull.

          • Elle says:

            Leave it to a liberal to claim that actual video proof isn’t proof. Anyone who defends those videos is a disgusting excuse for a human being. Those ridiculous charges were dropped btw. The videos were real and not edited. Pro abortion people want to be so happy about abortion until they see what it actually is. If you’re so for it, admit what it is and support it. Don’t lie about it. Everyone knows the truth.

    • Victoria says:

      Yes, we live in a free country. So we have the right to protest for what we believe in.

      • RD says:

        Protesting because your candidate lost the election seems pretty immature and petty!

        • Dan says:

          Oh come on! The winning candidate questioned the legitimacy of the President for YEARS! Don’t get started on being petty and immature!

        • Colleen says:

          Trump tweet (still up) from 11/6/12 when Obama was re-elected:

          “We can’t let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty. Our nation is totally divided!”

          The irony and hypocrisy is staggering.

    • Lex says:

      Congrats! You won the Best Troll Award! I’m sure your parents are very proud… because the only excuse for your ignorance is to intentionally try to piss people off. Can’t you get your rocks off some other way?

      • Elle says:

        Typical liberal response. You have no intelligent reply so you label me a troll. Keep it up. No one cares. The silent majority is silent no more. And don’t even try to claim that Hillary got more votes. Votes from states full of illegals(where they don’t check ID to vote) don’t count.

    • Kim says:

      Fun story: do you know how many rape kits go untouched and untested in the US? Just left to collect dust? Women brutalized in the most intimate fashion, and we as a society can’t test those kits? If women go to report rape it is so hard to prove and then we get guys like the Stanford kid (who was caught! Like people found him actively raping an unconscious woman!) getting a 6 month jail sentence but serving far less than that. People get more jail time for drug possession than he did for raping a woman. And that’s the tip of the iceberg. Birth control being deamed “unnatural” and the GOP saying insurance doesn’t need to cover it, BUT Viagra is covered (because Hugh Hefner really needs to be procreating still). Even little things: pads and tampons are taxed as a “luxury item.” Little things that show women are less than.

      • Elle says:

        Everyone was outraged by the Stanford rape trial regardless of their political affiliations. Rape kits are backlogged. It’s terrible. Obama had 8 years and did nothing to change it. Trump hasn’t had a hand in any of the things you mentioned but Obama has had 8 years to change them.

    • kath says:

      Remind me, which men’s medical procedures have to be authorize by women lawmakers?
      Which medical clinics for men have been defunded by women who feel they have the rights over men’s bodies?
      Which drugs and tests that men need for their health have been refused coverage by female insurers?

      • Elle says:

        Women can get all the health care they want. The government is not going to fund murdering babies anymore. Nice of you to call it a medical procedure. It’s murder. No medical clinics have been defunded. Abortion clinics have. There are tons of drugs for both men and women that insurance won’t cover.

        • kath says:

          What about the organizations who do cancer screening and prevention and general health monitoring but because they do counselling they lose their funding? Or the fact that birth control pills are not covered by insurance even though for many women it’s to prevent medical problems.
          If you’re really concerned about babies not being murdered, the first thing to do is to fund birth control to everyone who wants it. The second thing is to make sure that there is affordable child care so women don’t have to have have their children taken care of in inadequate situations because they have to work so be able to feed their families. Inadequate environments to grow up in and lack of health care is just as deadly as an abortion. More because it condemns generations to poverty.
          Unless you have family money, like the new Secretary of Education who knows nothing about education but donated $200 million to the Republican Party to get her job, or marry money like Melania Trump, it’s still a man’s world.
          There were 650 women’s marches across the world, including in my city. In Chicago there were so people who showed up, there was no room to march. Whatever you feel, there are a lot of people who hate the idea of Trump ruling.

          • Elle says:

            He did not remove funding for anything. He is ending obamacare which is one of the top reasons people voted for him. The world doesn’t matter. They don’t live here, they don’t vote. I don’t care what foreigners think of my President. 10s of millions of women voted for Trump and are thrilled he won. All Hillary did was take donations from countries that enslave women. She was a danger to women everywhere. Melania had her own money. It’s disgusting to say she married for money. You’re saying women can’t be successful without men. That’s sick. Women don’t need men to be successful. They can be successful on their own.

  6. Tom says:

    I find it silly, they should do these big events before elections not after. As after you are really just protesting democracy. While before you can bring about the change you want through democracy.

    Hopefully they remember to do it again in the Fall of 2018.

    • jj says:

      democracy & fighting for what you believe in isn’t limited to elections.

      • Temperance says:

        It’s a *very* strong warning what could happen if they intend on destroying the country. It will take very, very little to make them very, very unhappy.

      • Tom says:

        See the problem is, it actually is. The point of Democracy is you get to fight for what you want *at the ballot box*. This march won’t change Trumps views, and it shouldn’t change the Republican congresses views, as they are their to represent their constituents, who are not the women who turned out.

        See what should have happened is this whole march was done last October, when they could have affected the outcome of the election, and gotten what they wanted. Instead of now when they get a “You Go Girl” moment, get CNN some raiting, but no actual effect on Government.

        But then in October all these celebrities were too busy being smug and superior while believing Huff Po’s fake news that Hillary had a 98% chance to win.

        • James says:

          Democracy allows for people to hold assembly. to protest without being persecuted and thus this is democracy at work.

        • Dude, you do realize that the First Amendment DOES NOT END at the establishment clause, right? I’ve seen FAR to many conservatives post about how “shameful” the Women’s March despite loudly crying about “Freedom of Religion”. It’s like people don’t even realize that the Right to Assemble is IN THE SAME AMENDMENT.

          • Tom says:

            You seem to be confusing criticizing the action with calling for it to be banned. I have seen no one saying they can’t march, only that they shouldn’t because its too late and undemocratic.

          • Katrina says:

            You do realize that Pro-Life groups weren’t allowed to assemble today, right? ALL of their permits were denied.

        • Joey says:

          I can 100% guarantee you that every Republican member of Congress, both House and Senate, have at least one woman within their districts who protested today. They are their constituents, whether or not you believe it.

          • Tom says:

            While a politician obviously represents everyone in this district, the idea that they would follow the will of the few over the many who voted them into office is silly.

          • Joey says:

            I never said you should follow the will of the few over the many. All I implied was that you should take the desires of all of your constituents into account before you make decisions is all. In addition, while I believe there are plenty of liberal-minded thinkers living in the districts of Paul Ryan or Marsha Blackburn or whomever, there are probably plenty of conservative people who live in Nancy Pelosi or Keith Ellison’s districts.

  7. Raul J says:

    Never in my life have I seen so much hersteria! I guess this is what a mass meltdown of snowflakes looks like.

    • Joey says:

      I find it funny how whenever a Republican protests something, they are “Americans standing up for their rights” but if a Democrat does it, they are “special snowflakes having a meltdown.”

      • Amy says:

        I wish I could upvote this comment.

      • Bill says:

        Bc you guys usually riot and loot. Or did you miss any news channel at all yesterday

        • Kat says:

          There were riots after Obama was elected, complete with lynching effigies of him. There are riots when sports teams lose. There are going to be extremist idiots in every group both political and not, but today hundreds of thousands of people are marching for unification and women’s rights and I have yet to hear of any violence.

          • Elle says:

            I don’t remember any violence when Obama won. He held a rally in the middle of Grant park the night he won without fear of being shot. Trump had to stand behind glass. That tells you all you need to know about the left. They’re dangerous lunatics. There is no violence around the women’s march because it was organized by the same people who organized the violence. They’re not going to attack their own. They attacked Trump supporters last night. Wise up. Get your news from a real source.

          • Angela says:

            @Elle: Before the election, militia groups talked about holding armed protests in D.C. if Hillary won. And let’s not forget Trump’s Second Amendment “jokes” he made about HIllary throughout the campaign. A politician (Joe Walsh, I believe his name was) made a Tweet about taking up arms if Hillary won, too. And back in 2008, I remember seeing a few signs of Obama with a target like that for a gun over him. So don’t even try and act like people on the the right are totally innocent and not threatening violence.
            .
            There are many of us on the left who do not condone the violent actions from protesters. Please do not lump us all into the same “dangerous lunatics” boat.

        • Temperance says:

          Well, the problematic poeple yesterday were clearly paid conservative rabblerousers. Not that I object in any way to doing what is necessary to protect the nation. And let’s be honest here… the cons are in bed with the KKK and the neo-Nazis. You lose any and all right forever to criticism anyone at any time about violence.

      • Lex says:

        If we’re all special snowflakes, then Ned Stark was right: winter has come.

      • Elle says:

        Republicans protest. They don’t bash people. They don’t riot and destroy things. They protest with signs and votes. (Non vulgar) They protest in a way that matters. What the hell are these people protesting? We live in America. We have a democracy. YOU LOST. Trump won. Get over it. We survived 8 years of pure hell with Obama. I’m sure you will survive the good times that are coming with Trump.

        • Becca says:

          They bash people constantly! You elected someone who built his campaign on insulting the others running. Also guess what. Your precious Drumpf lost the election. He lost by more than any president ever did. The good times are only going to happen for the rich, white, straight males. He wants to roll back the rights of everyone else. It comes down to caring about others who aren’t like you and not. Republicans don’t care unless it serves them.

          • Elle says:

            You must live in an alternate reality because Trump and is the President. He won the electoral votes. He more counties and states. Vote made by illegals in states where they don’t check ID, don’t count. Trump defended himself. He didn’t bash anyone. People attacked him and he responded. You’re so insane. I am a white woman. I voted for Trump. So did millions of other women of all races. Men and women of all walks of life voted for him. People from states that Obama won previously. Trump has a gay following. He supporters gay rights. He supports gay marriage. Obama did not support gay marriage until he needed the gay community’s votes for re-election. I remember when liberals were saying they hope Hillary wins the electoral and loses the popular vote to stick to Trump supporters. LOL He’ll win the popular next time if we can get voter ID laws in all states.

    • Scribe says:

      Oh shut the hell up. Your stupidity is showing. Is that all you people can do – call us snowflakes just because we demand that the President upholds humans rights for all people…? Is tolerance and respect that he clearly does not intend to show to anyone non white or heterosexual a thing that has to be denigrated? If don’t agree with the march that’s one thing but stooping down to name calling is just proving the point why we needed to march.

      • RD says:

        Oh yes…once again a tolerant liberal telling someone to shut-up…such tolerant and loving people. And what has Trump ever said derogatory towards gays? I’m really curious!

        • Elle says:

          It must be that time he held up the Gay pride flag at one of his rallies.

          • Scribe says:

            Or the fact that he installed a Vice president that thinks conversion is way to cure gay people? In any other western country, someone with that background would not even be in the running so the fact that the guy is VP is a pretty good indicator of these president’s feelings towards that demographic.

    • RD says:

      It’s like a toddler that didn’t get their way, and now they’re having a 24/7 tantrum about it!

    • Leesa says:

      Raul J., I admire all of these brave, beautiful , strong women who are standing up for themselves and for other women. Women shall be heard and we shall be seen! There were a lot of men who marched along with the women and I thank the men who marched in support of women’s rights ! Unfortunately ,you will never know what its like to be a women, so you just need to sit down and be quiet!

  8. Sophie K says:

    They’ll never learn. No one cares what these “celebrities” have to say about politics. You’re voice or opinion is NOT more important or influential than those of us who are regular Americans. That’s why Hillary lost…

    • Joey says:

      They aren’t acting like their opinions matter more than anyone else’s. They’re just giving their opinion, as the Constitution allows.

    • Wayne says:

      Lol. You (presumably) voted for a celebrity because of what he had to say about politics. I don’t think you or anybody who voted for him get the say such things.

      • Angela says:

        Thank you. Republicans need to quit with the “celebrities need to shut up” comment. You guys voted for Trump, let Schwartzenegger be governor of California, and still admire Reagan, who was an actor before becoming president. If you’re tired of celebrities getting involved in politics and acting like their opinion matters more, maybe you should stop electing them to office.
        .
        Also, little hint for people who gripe about this stuff: it’s hard to take your”nobody cares what celebrities think!” cries seriously when you clearly cared enough to take the time to click on the article and leave a comment.
        .

    • Edna says:

      “Those of us who are regular Americans”. Oops, guess who didn’t pass American History. And in closing….a quote from Donald Trump : we won with poorly educated! I love the poorly educated!”

      • Bill says:

        Jenn ever said that. Where’s you get that quote? CNN? Lol snowflake

      • Elle says:

        Typical to take a quote out of context. The MSM and liberals in general kept saying that the poorly educated support Trump, like that’s a bad thing so he said he loved the poorly educated. He was mocking them. The left tries to destroy what they don’t understand. There is no tolerance there.

    • jj says:

      The march was not organized by celebrities nor was it only attended by celebrities. The march was organized by “regular” Americans and was attended by thousands (probably millions) of “regular American” across the country.

  9. Donald says:

    There is photographic evidence that says otherwise :D

  10. Meaghan says:

    I’ve liked a lot of signs, but Melissa Benoist’s is absolutely amazing. I wasn’t able to take part, but I’m there in spirit and am so proud and happy to see so many people standing up for human rights.

  11. Jj says:

    What a truly inspirational day this has been. Seeing these crowds dwarf the sad little funeral held yesterday has given me hope. And the ‘steel’ sign definitely stole the show. Congratulations, ladies.

  12. YTKylie says:

    This is truly inspiring…absolutely love Melissa’s sign….unlike Stephen Amell’s cowardly stance of trying to remain neutral… Pretty sure he’s not neutral but afraid if he shows his true loyalty, it will be the end of him and Arrow.

    • Elle says:

      Supergirl is more likely to suffer. It will be interesting to see if the ratings tank because of her sign. I already know many fans who will no longer be watching. I already gave up on this show a few episodes back. It’s just not as good as Arrow or The Flash.

      • Rex the Wonder Dog says:

        So what you are saying is the last two trump supporters are going to stop watching Supergirl. And Supergirl is much better than Flash this season. No contest.

        • Elle says:

          I haven’t enjoyed Supergirl much at all. I kept trying to like it, but it’s related to other shows that I love. This just gives me the push to give up on it which I wanted to anyway. LOL The Flash is amazing. Supergirl is nowhere near as good. The Flash hasn’t had to change it’s formula and characters in two seasons like Supergirl has. Supergirl is lame. The storylines. The characters. Everything. It’s just not good. I don’t think they would cancel supergirl even the ratings drop because it gets bigger ratings with the crossovers with The Flash, Arrow and DC.

  13. James R. says:

    Nice PR stunt I guess.

    • Temperance says:

      Yes, it was a very nice PR stunt – a massive warning to the GOP about ruining the nation.

      • Lex says:

        Temperance, I love the juxtaposition of your comment with your name. I especially love how this “PR stunt” got better attendance than the Inauguration.

  14. Red Snapper says:

    This was definitely my favorite sign of the day.

  15. Temperance says:

    Benoist, Caity Lotz, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes, Keiynan Lonsdale, America Ferrera, Amber Tamblyn, Amy Poehler, Amy Schumer, Gillian Anderson, Ming-Na Wen, Mandy Moore, Erin Richards, Jane Fonda, and Melissa Rauch are incredible Americans. If I wasn;t a fan before, I am now. And America Ferrera is *everything* – a great American hero.

  16. Anne says:

    Inspiring. And it shows that Benoit couldn’t be more perfect to don Supergirl’s boots

  17. MLPR says:

    Shame on Benoist. My 10-year old just saw that picture of her favorite superhero, and I had to explain a lot. Little girls are looking up to her, and she is stooping to Trump’s level of vulgarity. Poor choice of sign. I don’t know that my kid will be watching Supergirl anymore.

    • Rex the Wonder Dog says:

      Hope you explained Melissa was mocking a vulgar man that isn’t fit to be president.

      • MLPR says:

        Yes, which is why I said “stooping”. Did you actually read the comment? I don’t like the word coming from either mouth. It seems class has gone out the window. Why does a person think they have to use poor language to be considered tough and inspiring?

  18. Raven says:

    Marched in Denver and it was AMAZING! I feel encouraged, empowered and I am full of hope watching 200,000 people stand together as ONE VOICE! After filling restraunts and bars and celebrating together. Talking to perfect strangers and if they were friends I have know for years!
    I love that I took part in this historic moment!

  19. Katrina says:

    Sad that women weren’t marching for our most important right – the right to exist.

  20. Meg says:

    Totally my favorite sign of the day! Melissa is great.

  21. MTB says:

    Why did they wait this long to do this? It makes no sense. Is all of these idiots problems because of Trump? I don’t think so. Sure he made some bad remarks but why didn’t they do it when Billy boy did all of his things to women? Why didn’t they do it when his wife degraded the women that Bill forced himself on? Lets hear it.

  22. Andrea says:

    I understand that many people who work in TV took part in the March, so I can see why it warrants an article. However, I’d like to also see an article that discusses the recent situation that occurred when Katie Rich, the SNL writer, posted that inappropriate tweet about Barron Trump. Particularly since CBS fired Thomas Gibson for his behavior, I think that NBC needs to address the situation. Alec Baldwin going after Donald Trump on SNL is fair game. Both men are adults and have freely chosen to be in the public arena. However, a SNL writer going after a 10-year old boy is not cool, no matter how much people may dislike the child’s father.

  23. Has anyone bothered to look at the national electoral map on a county by county basis?
    One will notice a sea of red.
    Even in states Hillary carried like Illinois,Minnesota,New York,Virginia,Trump carried more than seventy five percent of the counties in those states.
    People have to start looking outside of the metropolitan areas.
    Time to affect the vote was before November 8,not after.
    Many people outside the cities look at these protesters as spoiled children who had their favorite toy taken away from them.
    There are approximately three thousand counties in the USA.
    Trump carried approximately two thousand five hundred of them.
    Those are numbers that are hard to ignore.

    • Rex the Wonder Dog says:

      There is a reason they call them flyover states. In some of those counties raccoons outnumber people. It says something that Hillary got 3 million more votes than trump.

      • Elle says:

        Yes, it says that many illegals voted. There are 12 million illegals, many living in the few states that Hillary won. States that don’t require ID to vote. Your attitude is part of the reason Trump won and will win again. We are the people of the USA. Our opinions matter. If the majority of people lived in Texas, Georgia, and Kentucky and controlled everything for the rest of the USA, liberals would be shouting from the rooftops. That’s why the electoral system works. You can’t have a few states control the entire country. Especially when probably at least 3 millions of the votes for Hillary were illegal. Obama even encouraged illegals to vote.

      • These people don’t count,is that what you are trying to say?
        The reason the framers of the Constitution put an Electoral College in was to prevent cities and heavily populated states from dominating elections.
        Can you guarantee that every vote in California was a legal one?
        People in “flyover country” count too,after all they do pay taxes.

    This is what celebrity liberal idiots do when they lose they cry and pout and make stupid signs . Go home and quite blocking the streets losers .

  26. Delilah says:

    So proud of these women, and everyone who joined the march.

  27. ragnar51 says:

    I’m a big fan of Donald Trump but also a big fan of Supergirl as well. Gotta give her credit for a very clever sign!!

  28. Elizabeth says:

    I bet Tvline is wearing their pussy hat proudly. I am just curious, but are we only reporting on this on a TV site because a TV star was present?

  29. Yeah, but... says:

    Imagine how big the crowds would have been if we had elected the candidate who enabled her rapist husband, then destroyed the lives of the women who spoke out against him, and then bragged about it! Oh, wait…

    • Wayne says:

      I love how you guys always deflect to Hillary. Haha. It shows what conservative snowflakes you are. It’s been hilarious reading all of you needing safe spaces and whining about the marches this weekend. Y’all can’t take it! May as well get used to it now. He may have won the electoral college but he lost popular. Now I know you guys say are in love with the EC now cos it worked for you. But all that means is there are a lot more of us then there are of you and we will not be silenced. Y’all whined about Obama and tried to delegitimize him his entire 8 years. You think we are bad now? Go back and look at news footage of your side when Obama won. Go back and listen to Rush Limbaugh when Obama won. Y’all thought the world was ending. (Oh and if you need more proof of how whiny you are go back to when ACA was enacted. Babies don’t cry as much as you lot did.) The difference between us and you is you did it cos you were racist. We do it because of everything that demagogue and his team ran off at the mouth about for his entire campaign. Racist things. Sexist things. Xenophobic things. Misogynistic things. False things. Y’all voted for Trump because us liberals haven’t been listening to you? Well y’all better start having better things to say cos all you still talk about is deflecting with Hillary and rude antagonistic insults about us and how you won. It’s time to grow up and join the real world that you and your party seem hell bent on destroying.

      • Elle says:

        You’ve got things backwards. We were called the silent majority for a reason. Hillary received millions of votes from illegals. Obama encouraged them to vote. They don’t check IDs. There are more of us than you. We have complete control now. We can work on getting voter ID laws established in all states before the next election. The majority of people who were eligible to vote did not vote. Turnout will probably be a record high next time and we will win again. Population and electoral.

        • Wayne says:

          I said have something better to say. You lost all credibility with Hillary received millions of illegal votes. Nice try, snowflake.

          • Elle says:

            You guys are the snowflakes. I live in reality. You’re delusional if you think she didn’t receive illegal votes. They don’t check idea. Millions of illegals live in the states that she won. It doesn’t matter anyway. The electoral college was made to protect America from situations like this. If the majority of the population live in a few conservative states and gave Trump the popular vote but let Hillary win the electoral and the election you would not be complaining.

          • Wayne says:

            Elle – Deflect deflect deflect deflect. Why you still talking about Hillary? Sweetie. We’re snowflakes? Y’all have been doing a lot of projecting this year. Look in the mirror. You’re the ones who melt when presented with facts. Ever hear of Occam’s Broom? If you haven’t then here it is for you. You believe one thing and ignore everything that says otherwise. See how you are comforting yourself with the EC vs popular? You know Hillary won the popular vote. That is a fact you can verify. But you don’t like Hillary and can’t stand that Liberals won the popular vote and the EC saved you. So you decide those votes were illegal. You can’t show me any proof that votes were illegal. You don’t have a leg to stand on but you believe it any way. This is what I’m saying. Thank you for proving me right. All you do is deflect and whine about Hillary and make up facts to support your delusional reality. Grow up lady.

          • Elle says:

            You can’t show me any proof that the votes for her were legit because they don’t require ID. Hello! Do you have comprehension problems? This entire so called women’s march was put on by Soros. He had planned for it to be a Hillary victory march but it turned into an anti Trump rally called a women’s march. Wise up. It’s no wonder why you guys are so shocked that Trump won. You can’t see what is really happening. You’re so easily led. Wikileaks anyone? Wikileaks provided facts that the media tried to help Hillary win. They stole the nomination from Sanders. It was all a plan. The attacks against Trump. All of it was planned by the left. I wouldn’t care Hillary had won the vote by 50 million. No voter ID it’s not legit. We had to show ID in Florida. I know the votes were legit here. The left still doesn’t get it. You’re not the majority. The majority of voters did not vote. If they did, we would win big. Your’e loud, whiny and immature but you’re not the majority. It doesn’t matter anyway. Thank God for the EC. That is why it was made. A few states do not have the right to determine what happens to all of us. That would be wrong. Especially when those states of full of illegals who vote only one way. BTW, just google Soros funded women’s march. He funded most of the groups that were there. Clinton’s largest donor. It’s in the New York Times.

          • snowsun says:

            hillary lost. pleae get over it and lets move on. america is very divided at these times but everyone just has to accept that trump is president. no amount of protesting or marching will kick him out of office. respect that and accept it.

      • By the way Wayne,we have Jill Stein to thank for voter recounts in Michigan, which found several election districts in Wayne County(home to Detroit) had more votes than actual registered voters.
        Do you really believe that every vote in California was cast by a U.S. citizen( natural born and naturalized)?

      • Playing the race card Wayne is so lame.
        There was plenty to disagree about when it came to policy.
        I guess it was a good idea to put the atomic bomb in the hands of the medieval maniacs ruling Iran.
        Of course there was Benghazi.
        Using the IRS to censor conservative groups looking for tax exemptions.
        Doubling the national debt.
        A stock market rally that was fueled by zero interest rates to the banks by the FED RES.
        False unemployment numbers when never reporting the true number of people who have simply left the work force.
        I guess it is wrong in your eyes to control our country’s borders.
        We should control who comes into this country Wayne;coming to the USA is a privilege not a right.
        Misogynistic things?
        I guess you supported Hillary Clinton,who was an enabler of one of our biggest misogynists-the forty second president of the United States.
        Sexist?
        Trump put a woman in charge of his presidential campaign and she directed Trump’s victory.
        Trump has put women in charge of some of his business interests.
        Does that sound sexist?
        By the way Wayne,Obama was a gift to the Republican Party.
        The Republican’s haven’t been this strong nationally since Calvin Coolidge was president.
        So much for a party that was supposed to have been dead politically on Election Night 2008.

    All the kudos and support for those who marched and protested in other ways to advance women and human rights!
    Another reason to keep watching Supergirl! Way to go Melissa. I’m the father of a 19 year old daughter and we have to make this world safer for women.

  32. Honestly, I would have preferred she not use that sign. She still represents a brand that is seen to children so I think it would have been better if she just was there and walked. Peter Capaldi did this in London

  33. GuyverXT9 says:

    LOL, based on what was seen in #thefappening, it most certainly is not made of steel

  34. DC says:

    First of all, Melissa Benoist PLAYS A CHARACTER. She does not OWN the character, and by using HER character to make a personal political point, she very likely stepped on her very own contract. I hope she gets sanctioned for this – can you IMAGINE a Disney actor using a Disney character to make their own crass political point?

    In addition: has she forgotten that a lot of “deplorables” also watch Supergirl? With our daughters? Her crassness in this matter makes her very hard to root for anymore. Or watch.

    She crossed a line. Her own personal actions were VERY unbecoming of Supergirl. If talking about her “pussy” is the way she proclaims truth, justice, and the American way, she needs some schooling.

    From a purely logical standpoint, the sign is illogical. The character of Supergirl is seen as being responsive to being touched, kissed, hugged, etc. Therefore, “pussy of steel” makes no earthly (or otherwordly) sense.
