The Women's March on Washington in protest of Donald Trump's presidency was a "vulgar" and "sexist" display by leftists who seemed more like members of a religious cult than legitimate demonstrators, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee says.
"Supporters claim this rally shows how big the rabid anti-Trump movement is and how the left is going to come back strong and win every future election," Huckabee wrote on his blog, MikeHuckabee.com.
"Personally, I think it resembles more the evolution of a religious cult, becoming more extreme but smaller as it drives away all but the most hardcore believers.
"I suspect that all it accomplished was to convince Trump voters, both male and female, that they were right, and possibly even convince some Hillary voters that they dodged a bullet."
Huckabee, who ran for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination before dropping out and supporting Trump, said he couldn't figure out what the gathering was all about.
"That you 'spread love' through violent, eliminationist rhetoric? That you protest vulgar public references to women's genitals by dressing up in public as women's genitals?" Huckabee asked.
"That Donald Trump has turned back the clock to the Middle Ages by stripping away women's rights and to the 1940s by putting dissenters in concentration camps and gas chambers? That's quite a lot to have done, considering he'd been in office all of 24 hours."
