Those that did take to the streets were not much. Just about a thousand gathered in Manhattan and protested at Trump's hotel. There were several arrests. Among the arrested was Linda Sarsour, a Palestianian progressive political activist who supports Sharia law, according to several Conservative sources.
Last night, the Statue of Liberty in New York City experienced a power outage. Some interpreted this as a "sign" of some sort as if the Statue herself was making herself absent from society in support of women. Others felt it was a staged event. In reality, workers at the statue failed to reset the power system which in turn caused the outage. More outages are expected as workers fix damage done by Hurricane Sandy.
