The 48-year-old actress also opened up about how she was angered by family members who voted for Trump despite his scandals coming to light.
“For me, it’s not about the wall, it’s not about any of that stuff,” Ashley said. “It’s about, you voted for a p-ssy grabber. You voted for someone who calls his wife a piece of ass, whose daughter is his favorite sex symbol. It really boils down, to me, to the sexual assault and misogyny piece.”
“I am a nasty woman,” Ashley read during the slam poem written by a 19-year-old woman, “but not as nasty as a man who looks like he bathes in Cheeto dust, a man whose words are a dis to America, Electoral College-sanctioned hate speech… I didn’t know devils could be resurrected, but I feel Hitler in these streets, a moustache traded for a toupee, Nazis renamed.”
There have been rumors swirling for over half a year that Martin would appear in the film, though there has not been an official confirmation. He previously appeared as Everett K. Ross, an ally to Black Panther, in the movie Captain America: Civil War.
Black Panther is set to be released on February 16, 2018.
The Price is Right host and comedian Drew Carey is okay after narrowly missing a violent protest in the Washington, DC area. There were pepper spray fumes, burning signs and apparent violent protesters and he walked right through them. Watch Drew afterwards...
The 32-year-old actress was one of the first speakers at the event and she reminded the people in attendance that they represent America, not the new president.
“It’s been a heartrending time to be both a woman and an immigrant in this country,” she said. “Our dignity, our character, our rights have all been under attack, and a platform of hate and division assumed power yesterday. But the president is not America. His cabinet is not America. Congress is not America. We are America. And we are here to stay.”
“We march today for our families and our neighbors, for our future, for the causes we claim and for the causes that claim us. We march today for the moral core of this nation, against which our new president is waging a war. He would like us to forget the words, ‘Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses, yearning to breathe free,’ and instead, take up a credo of hatred,” America added.
