Bethenny Frankel: Donald Trump Protesters Should Make a Plan, Not Revolt


This Real Housewife may have gotten too real. Bethenny Frankel took to Twitter on Friday, November 11, to justify the negative remarks she made about Donald Trump protesters in New York City earlier this week.

The Real Housewives of New York City star, 46, began her latest series of tweets by responding to a fan who criticized her for “[taking] the future loss of LGBTQ/women’s rights lying down.”

“I don’t think we take it lying down. I’m a believer in the content,” Frankel replied, referring to the message behind the anti-Trump demonstrations. “But the delivery is crucial.”

The Skinnygirl mogul added in a subsequent tweet: “Whether LGBT, roe v wade, immigration, racism etc, people have the right to be scared & sad. Now it’s time to collect & make a plan vs revolt.”

When one of Frankel’s 1.52 million Twitter followers reached out on Friday morning to tell her that they were “devastated” by Trump’s shocking defeat over Hillary Clinton in Tuesday’s presidential election, the Bravolebrity expressed that she was also having a difficult time processing the results of this year’s election.

“I understand,” she responded. “It has been the most tumultuous experience we have seen in a while.”

She continued in a follow-up tweet: “If you don’t know what to do sit still. Clarity comes from reflection vs reaction.”

As previously reported, Frankel branded those who participated in recent Manhattan protests against Trump as “imbeciles” and slammed their demonstrations as “moronic.”

Legions of anti-Trump protesters took to the streets of NYC on Wednesday to voice their opposition to the real estate tycoon’s impending presidency. At least 62 were arrested as thousands walked up Fifth Avenue toward the president-elect’s home at Trump Tower. They waved signs that said “Love Trumps Hate” and chanted, “Hey, hey, ho, ho, Donald Trump has got to go.”

“Cursing and screaming and fighting and burning flags is not productive right now … ,” the reality personality wrote in response to the protests on Wednesday. “I’m sorry — processing grief and frustration is one thing. This is another.”

On Thursday evening, Frankel — who competed on Trump’s Apprentice spinoff The Apprentice: Martha Stewart in 2005 — applauded Clinton’s ability to bounce back after her stunning loss.

“Wow,” she tweeted, accompanied by a link to a story about the Democratic candidate’s Thursday hike in Chappaqua, New York. “I wouldn’t be able to crawl much yet hike. #badass #truth.”
