In a particularly bizarre protest, people angry at the Trump administration gathered in cities around the country to “scream helplessly at the sky” on the anniversary of Election Day.
“Let’s have a primal scream for the current state of our democracy!” organizers at an event in Philadelphia said.
Glenn found this method of protest puzzling to say the least. Who has that kind of time on their hands? Wouldn’t you rather spend time with friends or family or at least watch some TV?
“Were there no reruns of ‘Friends’ or even ‘The Golden Girls’ to watch last night?” Glenn asked. “No paint to watch dry?”

GLENN: You could hear the screams from a block away. The shrieks. The shrieks. Desperate, filled with agony.
The screaming went on for what seemed like hours, but their cries for help would not be answered. Because there was really nothing to save them from. They were just screaming at the sky. So…
I don’t really understand this. But it was powerful. It was powerful. There were people last night that gathered in cities all across America to scream at the sky, literal just screaming at the sky.
The activists gathered together on the street corners in New York City and Chicago and Washington, DC, to attend a Facebook event called Scream Helplessly At the Sky, at the anniversary of the election. My gosh. We are going to be remembered as a society of geniuses, really, seriously. People are going to look back and say, my gosh, those people had it in control. People would RSVP. They literally RSVPed and showed up in major cities to shout into the night sky, about how much they hated Trump.
Sure, there’s a better way to relieve frustration than patrolling people in social media and typing nasty messages to those with with different political views. But really, screaming at the sky.
Do you — and I’m talked to the protesters. Do you have friends? Have you ever dated a girl or a boy — and I’m not suggesting that you have to. You could date anything you want. A matchbox car. And I support that.
Do you have families? Were there no reruns of Friends or even the Golden Girls to watch last night? No fresh paint to watch to dry?
It amazes me that we live in a sea of people that have no idea about how valuable time is and how to use your intellect. If you are a leftist activist, at least take some peaceful action or come up with a witty limerick to chant. I mean — I mean, at least Jesse Jackson came up with rhymes. Screaming at the descry helplessly just makes you look pretty ridiculous.
And I don’t know if you know this, but it’s not going to get him out of office. But I — I want to have a serious conversation with you. I just — I want to point this out. And I don’t want to upset you. I don’t want to create an unsafe feeling here, because I want you to feel safe. But I just want to point out that screaming out like that, and just (sound effect), you added a ton of unnecessary CO2 to the atmosphere. And I don’t think you want to do that. Do you?
