Tomorrow is 100 Days Since the Women's March -- What Was Accomplished?

The day after the inauguration of President Trump, the Women's March was held in locations around the country to protest against Trump.  Since right now, 100 day reviews are all in vogue, and since Sunday is the end of 100 days after the march, it's worth a moment to look back to see what the march accomplished during that time.

Let's start with concrete accomplishments.  Simply put, there were none.  Sure, there was massive media coverage and the generation of enormous amounts of trash.  It is also true that a new hat style came into its own.  But was there any lasting effect?  NOPE!

The marchers and their allies in the media and the Democrat party promised that they would stop Trump and perhaps even get him out of office.  They failed; it's just another broken promise.

The marchers did get to spout profanity on national TV; that accomplished nothing.  The marchers did get to call themselves "nasty" which led to one jewelry company making necklaces that say "nasty" but not much else. 

The real truth is that the march had no lasting impact of any sort.
