On January 21, the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration as the 45th President of the United States, hundreds of thousands of people staged anti-Trump protests in American cities. Actress Ashley Judd appeared at a Woman’s March protest in Washington D.C., at which she recited a vitriolic poem written by Nina Donovan, a 19-year old Tennessee woman. The title of the poem is ‘Nasty Woman.’
The poem, delivered by Ms. Judd in a melodramatic, over-the-top manner, lays out a litany of standard leftist allegations and slanders of Trump, those in his administration, and supporters. The title appears to be inspired by Trump’s reference to Hillary Clinton during the recent presidential campaign as a “nasty woman.”
These include the standard and tiresome defamatory accusations of racism, mysogyny, homophobia, etc.
Some of the more lewd and nasty lines in bile-laced composition claimed that the President viewed daughter Ivanka as “your favorite sex symbol,” with additional lyrics that strongly implied incestuous feelings. As disgraceful as Ashley Judd’s performance was, the same can said of many of those in attendance, who heartily applauded and cheered Judd’s rant.
Of course, social media venues were soon lit up with comments both praising and condemning Judd’s poem recitation.
Wynonna Judd, country music star and sister of Ashley, responded to followers on Twitter who requested her views on Ashley’s speech.
After commenting that “I don’t do politics on here,” Wynonna tweeted: “I have supported my country for 52yrs, I’ve sung for 5 presidents, & I will support my country until I take my last breath.”
Wynonna’s measured response earned approval from her fans on Twitter.
‘David Weissman’ tweeted: “you have my respect Wynonna, if only more celebrities were like you.”
‘Yolanda Jones’ commented: “Thank you Wy for being so positive in such negativity.”
‘Mary Ella Earle’ praised Wynonna while getting in a dig at Ashley: “Too bad your sister doesn’t have your good sense or patriotism.”
In a time of extreme national division, with the hate of the left reaching before unseen levels, it is encouraging and comforting to know that there are still celebrities who think, speak, and behave like adults.
