President Trump was hailed by a Judge for getting 'fat women' to walk
In a Facebook post which he later deleted, Judge Bailey Moseley who serves in Texarkana, Texas’ 6th Court of Appeals, also slapped down the demonstrations as “nothing more than a hissy fit”.
Judge Moseley’s subsequently deleted Facebook post read: “Just think about this. After just one day in office, Trump managed to achieve something that no one else has been able to do: he got a million fat women out walking.”
Shortly after he deleted his post, a fellow Facebook user commented on his page, saying, “I noticed you deleted a derogatory comment you made about women, good think I saved a screenshot!”.
The Judge claimed he mistakenly deleted the “derogatory” comment but added: “I think the march last Saturday was nothing more than a hissy fit with no defined purpose.” He later also deactivated his Facebook account.

Celebrities including Charlotte Church and Lily Allen took part in London’s Women’s March which began outside the US embassy and finished at Trafalgar Square.
Charlotte Church, who was raised as a Roman Catholic, held a placard which read: “I didn’t come from your rib, you came from my vagina”, which seemed as an attempt to slap down the Biblical story of how Eve was created from Adam’s rib bone.
