She’s one outspoken Skinnygirl. Bethenny Frankel took to Twitter on Wednesday, November 9, to slam those who participated in demonstrations protesting Donald Trump’s shocking victory in Tuesday’s presidential election.
“Crazy to bully & badger over the election,” the Real Housewives of New York City star, 46, wrote. “We and the media nominated them & we had the right to vote for either.”
She continued, “This protesting is moronic. What is the government going to say? Just kidding. Do over?”
As previously reported, hoards of anti-Trump protesters — including celebrities such as Madonna, Michael Moore and Tyler Oakley — took to the streets of Manhattan on Wednesday to voice their objection to the ex–Celebrity Apprentice host’s takeover of the Oval Office this coming January.
At least 62 were arrested as thousands walked up Fifth Avenue toward Trump Tower (where the president-elect lives) and waved signs that said “Love Trumps Hate.” Together, the demonstrators chanted, “Hey, hey, ho, ho, Donald Trump has got to go.”
Frankel went on to erroneously tweet that Trump won the state of New York (a mistake that she later admitted to) and then criticized participants for their defiant behavior.
“People are burning flags This is not a joke,” she tweeted, telling a fan that peaceful protests were “not happening in New York City right now.”
“She won New York so no reason to burn our city to the ground,” she continued, correcting her earlier tweet. “Cursing and screaming and fighting and burning flags is not productive right now … I’m sorry — processing grief and frustration is one thing. This is another.”
She also described the demonstrators as “imbeciles I saw today cursing, hurting people & burning [the American] flag.”
Not long after Frankel’s rant, one of her followers told her that she might not understand the passion behind the demonstrations as “multimillionaire white women haven’t exactly been the focus of [Trump’s] vitriol for over a year.”
The business mogul — who competed on Trump’s Apprentice spinoff The Apprentice: Martha Stewart in 2005 — clapped back by saying, “You look mighty white to me.”
