Millions of people across the world marched this weekend to protest the inauguration of US President Donald Trump.
More than 10,000 attended the Women’s March in Sydney and thousands more carried their placards in Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and Canberra on Saturday.
One Aussie woman who did not turn out with a sassy sign in hand was One Nation leader, Pauline Hanson.
Although they weren’t scrawled on a piece of cardboard, Hanson – a vocal Trump supporter – did have some words for her sisters on the streets.
She posed the following, rather bizarre, question on Twitter this morning:
“I want you to ask yourself- Where is the #WomensMarch to protest the suffering of women in countries under the rule of Islamic Extremists?”
The Queensland senator also shared a video of protesters in Brisbane’s King George Square on her Facebook page on Sunday morning calling them “clowns”.
“Don’t these clowns have anything else better to do with their time other than to hold sad, anti-democracy protests?” she wrote.
“Why on earth would anyone want to walk around in this heat chanting about One Nation and the new President of the United States of America, Donald Trump?”
In the video, originally posted by The Courier Mail, the group can be heard shouting: “Donald Trump go to hell. Send One Nation there as well.”
Hanson also scolded the protesters in Washington, whom she accused of “vandalising businesses and committing assaults”.
The new President also tweeted his thoughts on the the rallies, suggesting protesters should have voted in the November election.
An hour-and-a-half later he added that peaceful protests are one of the “hallmarks of democracy”.
Last week, Hanson bragged about receiving an invite to Trump’s inauguration before it turned out one of her party members had requested them.
In the end she didn’t attend, which is a pity because he could’ve used some seat-fillers.
