If you can’t beat them, hijack their narrative. That’s the apparent strategy behind Donald Trump’s latest tweet addressing the hundreds of thousands of women (and sympathetic men) marching to promote increased access to reproductive healthcare services, women’s rights in general, LGBTQ rights, ending violence against minority groups and a host of progressive causes completely antithetical to the Trump agenda.
Many of the women marching were appalled at the President’s gall in turning a march protesting his agenda into a celebration of his supposed economic achievements, albeit if only in his own mind. They and their male fellow travelers also took to Twitter to reprimand Trump for his inability to discern their very obvious messages.
You do realize we are marching against YOU and the GOP, right?

That's not why they're marching, #IdiotTrump
They're marching because they want YOU & your corruption out of our WH!

The irony is mind boggling here
Umm. Dude. The women and men marching today seek your impeachment.

I laughed just as hard when I read that! Only he would make it about himself in a positive way
I don’t believe this March is in any way, a celebration of you. But, you keep thinking that if it makes you feel better. One year in, babies have no healthcare, thousands of hard-working, good college kids are facing deportation. Not much to celebrate.

You’re so vain, you probably think this march is about you!
