My good friend Mary Gerace took part in the Chicago Women’s March yesterday and has prepared this report on the signs that TV didn’t show us.
“After marching from Columbus and Congress to Michigan Avenue, I stepped up on the sidewalk to do some serious sign reading; I then did the same on Jackson Blvd. These were memorable:
- I’ve seen better cabinets at Ikea
- 2018 We shall overcomb!
- And you thought we were mad last year
- So, Trump who?
- Prevent Truth Decay
- Super Callous Fragile Sexist Racist Nazi Potus
(Must be of a certain age to get it, I’d say; Mary Poppins would approve.)
- Witchhunt: I’m a witch and I’m hunting you
- Respect Existence or Expect Resistance
- The power of the people is stronger than the people in power! We Decide
- Does this ass (drawing of Trump) make my country look smaller?
- (Under photos of Trump, Pence, Ryan and McConnell) Do these asses make my sign look fat?
- (Drawing of the White House) Sex offenders CANNOT live in government housing!
- If HILLARY were PRESIDENT we’d all be at BRUNCH
- EMERGENCY ALERT: Threat to democracy – Inbound to Mar-a-Lago – Seek immediate impeachment -This is not a drill
- Without Hermione, Harry would have died in Book One
- Remove the Malicious Mango
- Out with the Dope, In with the Hope
- Snowflakes turn into avalanches
- It takes a snowflake to start an avalanche
- I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change; I am changing the things I cannot accept.
- Vote with heart because they don’t have one
- White people renovating houses, Congressional edition
- My mom is pissed!!!
- If you’re not terrified, you’re not paying attention
- If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention
- Too depressed to be funny!
- The reasons why I march will not fit on just one sign
- Global warming is not a liberal conspiracy
- Make America Hate Again! Oh, you thought he meant GREAT?
Well, you know how he tends to say one thing and do the exact opposite.
He’s very presidential like that.

- Girls just want to have FUNdamental human rights
- Grab them by the Ballot Box
- Grab ’em by the Mid-Terms
- Grab him by the Putin
- New Public Trust Poll: Trump 24% Gas Station Sushi 26%
- So sex offenders can’t live within 1000 feet of a park or school but Trump lives in the White House?
- (Drawing of Trump) I don’t always use mouthwash but when I do it’s Fleet
- I will not go quietly back to the 1950s
- So bad, even introverts are here
- (Photo of Robert Mueller) Make America Great Again
- Vaginas brought you into the world; Vaginas will vote you out
- We aren’t going anywhere except to the polls
- RIP GOP
- Trump Shutdown: Nice deal, Donny

- I didn’t see my favorite sign from last year this time, but here it is:
- Give him hell until he goes back there
And that’s your report from the field.”
