During an all-women panel brought together to discuss the Women’s March on Washington for Don Lemon’s Friday night show, Hilary Rosen wasn’t letting conservative Kayleigh McEnany say the march was negative.
McEnany attempted to claim that she and many anti-choice activists were treated badly when they attempted to walk through the march. She claimed that there were threats of violence and horrible things said about the president of the United States.
Rosen refused to let her play the victim, saying that the day was about feminists and pro-choice women everywhere coming together for something positive.
“An entire day filled with love, no violence, not a single arrest, huge amount of good energy,” Rosen said. “I can’t accept the characterization of close to a million women coming to Washington being in communities around the country and you characterizing it as negative. It was not negative.”
She did concede that it was absolutely tough on those that fight against women’s rights and women’s choice but it wasn’t about “random violence.”
McEnany attempted to push the talking point that she wasn’t welcome and people were mean to her and other anti-choice people.
“Here’s the thing, people are afraid of being deported,” Rosen said. “People are afraid of having health care taken away, people are afraid of their rights being stripped by courts. Don’t act like that should be sunshine to Donald Trump and people against it. The president next week is going to appoint a Supreme Court justice if they get a majority votes will do all those things.”

Google tells workers to avoid arguing politics in house
Google on Friday told employees to focus on work instead of heated debates about politics with colleagues at the internet company, which has long been known for encouraging people to speak their minds.
Updated workplace guidelines for "Googlers" called on them to be responsible, helpful, and thoughtful during exchanges on internal message boards or other conversation forums.
"While sharing information and ideas with colleagues helps build community, disrupting the workday to have a raging debate over politics or the latest news story does not," the updated guidelines stated.
"Our primary responsibility is to do the work we?ve each been hired to do, not to spend working time on debates about non-work topics."
