Headlines of the day II: Slouching toward Bethlehem


Two headlines form the London Daily Mail, starting with this:

  • More than 2.5million people across the U.S. took to the streets for the Women’s March against Trump during his first full day in office with millions more around the globe demonstrating
  • One million of those alone gathered in the new president’s backyard in Washington DC on Saturday
  • The Women’s March on Washington is expected to be largest inauguration-related protest in US history
  • More people are believed to be on the National Mall for the DC march than came for Trump’s inauguration
  • In total there are 600 sister marches throughout the country and across the world

And then this, starring the Material Girl:
