“I love this statement “We’re gonna have to see about a peaceful transfer of power.” No trump, there is no ‘seeing about a peaceful transfer of power.’  There will be and you will not be the one who makes that decision either.  Trump has never understood how our Democracy works.”

— Lisa Hoffman

“So he really doesn’t believe in ‘law and order’?  Well, the American people do and we will be happy to make sure there is no doubt.”

— Amanda Anderson

“What does it mean? It means that a big, Republican government is trying to restrict a woman’s freedom, her right to privacy and her right to make her own personal health care decisions. This is no one’s business but the woman’s. No one’s. Republicans are all about taking away our freedom and controlling women.”

— Rio Dellagrande

— Sarah Stone

“It has never been more apparent That our judicial system needs a complete overhaul. When people like Trump can ignore subpoenas without recourse, play games to tie up the courts at the expense of taxpayers, it is broken. There is no justice and we need to fix it.”

— Irene Ryding
