AL.com’s Anna Clare Vollers has a rough weekend playing journalist, but don’t worry, she FEELS like she did a good job.

Alabama has their own “Resistance” and AL.com is there to screw the story up…

The Birmingham march was the official “sister march” of the Women’s March on Washington, which began as a march on the nation’s capital but spread across the United States and the world, with hundreds of thousands gathering in cities to march in support of a variety of civil and human rights, and in protest of a new presidential agenda they don’t support.

“Our rights are going to be taken away from us and if we don’t do something collectively, we’re going to be in big trouble,” said Yancey del Rio of Helena, who was attending the march with her daughter Maria Holland. Del Rio held a sign that said ‘Granny is Pissed.’ “With this president, I am literally scared to death.”

Although the march was not billed as an anti-Trump protest, many marchers expressed their disapproval of the new president, and some chants railed against his remarks about women and his stance on a variety of civil rights issues.

“We came to show solidarity for all people,” said Averee Patton of Birmingham, who attended with her husband, their two children, her mother and a family friend. They held signs including “We shall overcome,” “A woman’s place is in the resistance” and “When they go low, we go high.”

“Peoples’ rights are already being taken away, so we want them to know that we’re with them and we support them,” said Patton.

Couple of problems…

What rights?

Here is how the journalist covering the march responded…

They “feel” their rights are being taken away.

The FEEL it.

Just like she FEELS like a journalist…

Alabama Sen. Cam Ward (R-Alabaster) kicked up a tweetstorm Sunday after posting on Twitter about this weekend’s protests with a photo that was several years old and showed multiple women in revealing clothing.

The photo was from an event in 2013 called SlutWalk Chicago, an annual parade that protests sexual assault and violence.

Ward’s tweet soon attracted dozens of angry tweets, many pointing out that the photo was not taken at a women’s march, and accusing Ward of spreading “fake news” or “alternative facts.”

Ward stood by his statement, tweeting “Never said it was from yesterday. Pointing out how ‘civil protests’ have been anything but lately. Both right & left have discarded civility”.

Ol’ Anna Clair Vollers is 0-2 this weekend, she just FEELS like she is good at her job.
