11:00 am
>> the oligarch has to go. we need new leadership, young leadership, women leadership. >> president trump. i did not vote for you. that said, i respect that you are our president-elect and i want to be able to support you, but first, i ask that you support me. support my sister, support my mother, support my best friend and all of our girlfriends. >> i wish every single one of them could see you are beautiful, some in congress are terrifying one. >> i got it. and organizers of the women's march on washington say there are 2.5 million demonstrators participating in sister marches all over the world today. i can tell you, i was in the thick of it covering it. we'll play some coming up.
11:01 am
kerstin gillibrand to cory booker to america ferrera. this is monumentous. we have all of these pictures for you. the live pictures, huge crowds gathered across all of these major streets. we have reporters here at cnn covering these marches nationwide for you. kyung lah is live. jessica schneider standing by. miguel marquez. with you here in washington, all with the sea of pink, paint the picture for me. >> reporter: janelle is taking the stage. the march scheduled right now but running slightly behind schedule but you were just talking about the sea of pink. i want you to look at some of the people in the crowd here. the sea of pink are generally pink hats that they're wearing. it started out as something that is is shared socially about trying to knit your own hat and
11:02 am
what you're seeing here are all of these pink hats descending on washington, dc. what they want to tell donald trump. because we've talked to women. these ladies are from california. we've talked to people from alaska, new york, and all wanted to come to donald trump's backyard so he could look out the window and hear from them. i'll stop here but some of the women if you look past into the crowd, you could see that they're ready to march. we heard janelle said they want to shut washington down and brooke, you know from being out here, it's incredibly packed. it is going to be logistically difficult to get all the women to turn and try to march in one way. they're supposed to start soon so we'll see what happens. brooke? >> we'll see. we'll take it live.
11:03 am
all the ladies marching all across washington and the country, kyung, we'll check back with you and new york where not only where one of the major marches are, but the home. jessica, people couldn't even totally eyeball how many would show up and i think the initial estimates just blew these organizers away. >> reporter: it's overwhelming. this is the women's march. for two hours, we stood in absolute gridlock. here's a shot of 2nd avenue extending north. this march was supposed to begin at 47th street but as you can see, we're at 46th. you are seeing crowds as far as
11:04 am
the eye can see. more of a saunter than a march. thousands of people right now on the east side of manhattan near the united nations. we're walking a little bit south to make a right-hand turn and head up fifth avenue where the protests will be ending at trump tower, of course, the president in washington, dc but many of the people i've spoken with out here say they don't care the president's in washington. they still want to get their message out and home here in new york city, you hear the yeah of the crowd here. there have been chants out here. but people i've spoken with say it's not just about women's rights but human rights, it's about civil rights. i talked to young and old men and women, even talking to a 10-year-old boy this morning who said he's out here because he's also concerned about climate change issues and immigration. so this crowd, if we can get one more look to show you the enormity of it, it's really incredible. organizers out here had worked
11:05 am
for weeks to put this together but a lot of people are saying, there may be a lot more people out here than actually rsvp'd. it's a sight out here in the middle of new york city all to get the message to president trump. brooke? >> they knew it would be big. i don't think they knew quite how big it would. janelle monet back in washington on stage. ♪ hell you talk about ♪ sandra bland ♪ sandra bland >> band, drop it in. ♪

so he can feel us and we're doing this for his mother who gave birth to him. we are proud of you for standing up here with us today. i'm giving you to mike because this is not about you. >> jordan dais. >> we're going to do it right because this is a hoemoment whe we're in tune, we're in tune, right? >> jordan davis. >> say the name. >> jordan davis. >> say her name. >> jordan davis. >> say her name. >> jordan davis. >> say her name. >> jordan davis. >> say her name. >> jordan davis. >> say her name. say her name. say her name. say her name. >> we've got another mother,

11:11 am
that's just a piece of this major story that is, you know, making its way through the streets. look at all these women. from seattle, west coast. we know you're watching as well. sara sidner is in los angeles. tell me why they wanted to show up. >> reporter: you know, there are women from all different backgrounds here. we talked to a military veteran. she was in the army corps. she was in a wheelchair trying to get through these crowds here because she said she's concerned about america's democracy, particularly pointed comments towards donald trump saying you better include us. we love our country and we're a part of america too. and some of the comments that he made as he was on the trail to the presidency really disturbed a lot of people here. they're also very concerned about what his policies are going to look like but it got so big here, the crowd broke apart and actually started going along a route that was not a sanctioned route that was not a
11:12 am
permitted route. it just got too big. the organizers thought there would be somewhere between 70,000 to 100,000 people here and what we're seeing is the crowd literally breaking apart and going down streets that have cars on them because they have decided they cannot move and want to be a part of the march. you are looking at the street that goes up at an angle there, with the hill and on the hill, it is literally stopped. the people aren't moving anywhere but you could see the march going and where this is going is from the square in the heart of downtown los angeles to city hall. we're also expecting a lot of celebrities to show up including someone at the crowd. we expect barbra streisand and mayor is expected as well but the people today, it's really about those who showed up. it's obviously not just women, although, that's the majority of the crowd. there's some men saying they're
11:13 am
concerned. >> sarah, we're going to pull away from you. a lot of women, a lot of cell phones. some audio issues. just roll with it. we'll come back to you. let's go to boston now. miguel marquez at the massive march there. what are you seeing there, miguel? >> reporter: brooke, to say that organizers are overwhelmed by the turnout here is an underestimate. these are still marchers waiting to get on to the march route. it's a mile long and the start, if you look back around to boston common and they don't have enough room basically on the route to get people out of the park and marching along. they planned for about 25,000 people for this march. a senior source with the boston police department said they have 120,000 to 125,000 people out here. and it's not just women's groups. hundreds of groups across new england have found boston for this march saying this is the beginning of something for them. this is the beginning of a
11:14 am
movement for their first nationwide organizational meeting, putting the trump administration on notice that they're being watched and these numbers and these people will be more politically engaged than ever and they will be watching every move this new administration makes. brooke? >> miguel, thank you. miguel marquez in boston. i've got a huge panel here in washington. i promise you, we're going to keep an eye on the screen though and keep watching this march as it progresses through the day but let me begin with a tweet that came in. let's all read this together from hillary clinton. right? who we did see yesterday at the inauguration and saying, thanks for standing, speaking, and marching for our values, women's march. important as ever. i truly believe we're always stronger together. i was out in the thick of it. a lot of women brought up trump and hillary clinton but i don't think it's just about that. and it's also not just women's issues. i heard a lot about climate
11:15 am
change and environment. what do you make of all of these people? i'm running out of adjectives to describe this. >> it's remarkable but i think what miguel said at the end there is critical. this is an extraordinary show of democracy, right? of how democracy can and should work. no matter what side you're on. it just is. but then the question is, how are they going to take this and as miguel said, perhaps, start a more politically directed movement? in a way that, you know, it was there and looking over at hillary rosen. certainly, democrats did try and in many cases, did succeed to motivate democrats but clearly, not enough when it came to the electoral college. what is unclear is whether or not the women and men in this crowd, just look at the next elections, the midterm elections. do they live in districts where it's even going to make a difference because it jerry mandered? we don't know.
11:16 am
likely not. and then if not, are they going to be able to make a difference with, for example, the 10 democratic senators who are up for reelection in states that donald trump won including pennsylvania where david irving helped donald trump win which is traditionally much more blue? we'll see what happens in the midterms. that's the question beyond just the awesomeness of these pictures and what this movement means but what are they going to do about it. >> david irvin, let me go to you because you were a donald trump supporter, he's the president. they said, he's not my president and i had to say, yes, he is. yes, he is your president. how does he bring these women though in the fold? >> brooke, it's the first day of his presidency. let's give the guy a break. i think he's going to prove with the people in his inner circle, people like deena powell, his daughter, who has spoken on
11:17 am
equal pay and on child care and important issues to women. give the guy a break. >> hillary is laughing. >> because my trefriend david saying he has women to handle the women. that is kind of what you said, but that's okay. dana raises a good point about what this means politically but it's worth a moment to talk about what this means emotionally today. this is democracy in action, but this is dissent. aggressive dissent against a president they feel has, in essence, squandered the last two months of this transition, lost an opportunity to bring people together to lessen the fears where he's really done nothing to make women feel like, oh, yeah. you are going to be included with his appointments to make immigrants feel like, you know what? you don't have to worry about being deported. he's done lgbt eepeople.
11:18 am
there's no part of what this president has done over the last few weeks to make these people feel like they have any choice. >> i think a piece is is a trust issue, just talking to some women. they just don't believe the president, despite david, your point. they just don't believe him and it's less about what he says he'll do and it's more about what he will do for them and the country but mary katherine, you were chatting earlier and i said, where were you a year ago? where were you a couple of months before the election? >> many of them were probably involved. >> this is amazing. >> trump critical conservative. i empathize with the idea of making your voice heard and tactically, a giant rally in an urban center featuring lots of celebrities is what got hillary elected. but it is exciting in a time where it's patriotic and celebrating again. not so exciting for hillary but i'm enjoying it.
11:19 am
>> jim acosgy jim sciutto, do y he'll address these women? this movement happening across the country? >> the cia, i'm sure not. enough issues with the cia. he's got a battle. this is dissent. you've got dissent in the ranks inside the intelligence services, largely because the president-elect has taken them off in the midst of an ongoing investigation of whether and how much russia helped him win the election. that's an open question. will not assessed if it's helped but looking at russian influence on the election. one. and two, let's state this, part of cnn's reporting. we know that law enforcement and intelligence continues to look at ties between donald trump and russia. so you're going to have continuing investigations and why do i mention that now in the context of this? the dissent is from within the government, really, his own party and crucial agencies but
11:20 am
at a time when he's going to have enormous power to that dissent conceivably and putting people in the positions. it seems to me you've got the party to party dissent, somewhat expected and then the internal dissent which is unresolved and going to continue. it's concrete and real. >> great points but that's a no. that's what i heard at the top of the hour from the cia. but not from washington. thank you for that. what about just in terms of, i don't know, giving an acknowledgment to these women? this is how they're sort of banging their proverbial fists and say, we are walking to the white house. we want you to hear us. does he acknowledge that in some way? would it behoove him to? >> you've seen presidents bend, most notably, lbj. he said, we shall overcome. i don't know if donald trump gets there. wasn't the case over the 15 months of the election.
11:21 am
two months of the transition. seems unlikely, but there's no two ways about it. when he talks about a movement, he's clearly helped unleash a movement here of and you're right, mari katherine. wasn't as active during the campaign and i'm sure there's a lot of people saying, boy, i wish this kind of energy was involved instead of hillary clinton winning by 3 or 4 million votes. maybe 8 to 10 million votes jim comey notwithstanding. >> mark? >> a couple of things. one, is this a feel good moment on a saturday afternoon for people who are frustrated at the election results and could be. if that's the case, next week, this will have never happened and forgotten this. when we saw donald trump get these huge rallies all across the country, dana and i and jim, and we saw these things happen, we didn't think they would come out and actually vote for donald trump. we thought they were there for the spectacle and guess what? they did come out and vote for donald trump. the question is going to the midterm elections, are all these men and women, these different
11:22 am
coalitions, it's not just about women's rights but the liberal party agenda, not the democratic party agenda, but the liberal party coalesce to defeat republicans? >> i don't know about the voting because i don't think this is just about electing people. what we have is is an agenda and congress going to enact policy over the next two years, well prior to the next election so what these folks are saying is, you know, we don't want you to end planned parenthood. we want you to feel the pressure on some of these policies. we want you to feel pressure on appointments and feel pressure on repealing dacca rules for the dreamers. i think of the energy not about the politics but that will matter in 18 months but today, these people are worried about what's going to happen.
11:23 am
>> what comes out of it? do they go back to the cities across the country and then nothing happens? >> i don't know if everyone caught that. they were saying helel no. there's so much emotion beyond politics. it's like how people felt post-katrina and that led up to obama and a good question to ask if it's just occupied. >> very conservative. >> you know donald trump. you know donald trump. you work with him and helped him win pennsylvania. knowing him as you do, what do you think he's thinking when he watches? >> i think he thinks these people were active in new york,
11:24 am
san francisco, boston. everywhere we're seeing around the world. >> do you think he'll acknowledge them? >> i don't think today. not at the cia. >> it means reaching people who aren't liberal. >> how accessible he has as a president. i could count the times i know that barack obama watched cable tv or read more than his clips, but donald trump actually does pay attention and we have seen. what happened in obamacare and we've seen him react to public opinion and so when public opinion goes hard enough, if he feels like there is a huge backlash with women, he will, it could have an impact on what he lets republicans in congress do.
11:25 am
i do think that it's not going to get dismissed entirely about from the coast and by the way, he does live in new york and he considers himself. that's his base in many ways. so i think there's an opportunity there. >> we had weird pockets of violence yesterday but today, a joyful thing in the city but i think it's funny. right now, they're bowling inside in the white house with the kids. there's two things. the trumps this morning attending the church service. doing something very traditional and going along their way, going back with their kids, bowling, taking advantage of the weekend and yet you're right.
11:26 am
where is he? there hasn't been a peep or a tweet that we've seen today about this. unclear but in the meantime, we have this trump family very much enjoying the pageantry and if they can ignore this, i'm not sure that they will but certainly seem to be going along. >> let's hit pause on the conversation. so much more to ask everyone. it's just a huge day. yesterday was a huge day. today is massive. more scities this moment and lie on cnn, a short time from now as we mentioned, president trump will speak live from cia headquarters. will he address these women and this movement happening across the country? i'm brooke bald liwin live here washington, dc. this is cnn's special live coverage. la quinta presents "how to win at business." step one: suck on and point decisively with the arm of your glasses. it is no longer eyewear, it is your wand of business wizardry.

11:29 am
welcome back. watching cnn. brooke baldwin. live special coverage. women marches across america as president trump has taken office. this is officially his first full day. the white house, but juxtapose the images we played for you yesterday with this. thousands of marchers flooding the streets across the country and major cities including downtown denver. ana cabrera is there for us. tell me what you're seeing. >> reporter: hi, brooke.
11:30 am
we're here in the heart of denver, colorado, where you can see a sea of people as far as the eye can see here at this civic center park which is just across from the colorado state capital. we're going on four or five hours of demonstrations happening here in colorado today. it began with a march that wound through about a mile stretch of the downtown denver street that organizers had seen about 50,000 people rsvp for this event but we were just told, again, organizers unofficial estimates at least 100,000, they believe, turned out here in colorado today. and a lot of the people we're talking to of all ages, races, and really, all walks of life are saying a similar message, saying they want the current president and his administration to see this and to hear that they are all united and their voices supporting all people, human rights, social justice, women's rights. civil rights. all of these are pieces of
11:31 am
what's important to the folks here in colorado and what we're hearing all around the world when it comes to these demonstrations and an organizer said it's not a protest against something. it's for something and the goal for these folks isn't just to have this event and be one and done, but to take action moving forward. so they want this to be a sign of the vigilance and the sheer numbers of supporters who are going to be standing up for these different human rights and equality for all moving forward as the administration continues to pursue policies and plan out the next four years but again, you can look at the folks here and when you read some of the signs, when you see them, a lot of the signs are talking about notions of also being respectful and really being one as humankind no matter where you're from or what color your skin or your gender, brooke.
11:32 am
>> we could do an entire photo gallery just with the signs. ana cabrera, thank you. this is not just here in washington, dc, but throughout the country and honestly, throughout the world. these massive demonstrations are under way. we'll ping-pong live pictures but president trump, just a little while from now, set to speak from the cia. we'll take that live. we'll be right back. you could spend the next few days weeding through w2s, pay stubs and bank statements to refinance your home. or you could push that button.

11:35 am
we're back with the breaking news. so glad you're with me on this saturday. there's so much to talk about here in washington. cnn special live coverage as demonstrations erupt across america. for a myriad of reasons. this is not just about donald trump or hillary clinton but issues and the white house listening to what these women and men have to say. let's talk though now about how the white house ordered a stop to the tweeting at the national park service. let's go to manu raju, the senior congressional reporter who has the scoop on this. set up the story. what happened? >> a new york time reporter tweeted images of the inauguration in roughly, and the
11:36 am
times reported an image of that including with yesterday and it appeared and trump's inauguration compared with trump's inauguration and that was not very popular after that tweet came out. the park service retweeted that times report the tweet and that was not going over well with the white house. and there was an instruction that came down from the national park service that there will be no more tweeting or retweeting until further guidance comes out on monday. we know donald trump on the campaign trail time and again talk about the size of his crowd, really pointing to the size of his crowds as the sign of major enthusiasm and now his presidency. and so this is obviously, had me
11:37 am
rub donald trump and his team the wrong way and issuing an apology of sorts for that retweet. and also a sign that while donald trump will be running the white house, a lot of career folks in these different bureaucracies. the federal agencies and then different views than the white house and they do things that are not very popular with the white house so as trump comes in and all on the same page but with so many trfederal official out there, people may try to do things to undermine. >> thank you, manu. kat kate, we were talking about this earlier. not only the comparisons yesterday with the obama inauguration and today compared to yesterday and of course, mr. trump says, it's not fair, it's not okay. >> i'm actually struck today by this picture behind us on the set of the capital where he was just sworn in yesterday. it feels very sort of deserted
11:38 am
and desolate about on the right of the mall, it's packed with people. obviously, it's not the optics, i think, that we wanted the trump administration to kick off his big weekend with, however, this march has been planned and it's a march so big. they can't march. >> can i just add something to that? when i saw the reporting on the fact that the trump administration asked the park service to pull that tweet back, let me just say, to start with, the national park service, their job is to, part of their job is to estimate crowd size. so if they didn't know the numbers, then they should be careful about what they retweet, particularly since that's their job. having said that, the fact that on day one of a full trump administration, the white house is saying, please don't tweet something that clearly would
11:39 am
upset the president who admits is obsessed is a little bit alarming because it is a slippery slope. and you know what? there are going to be things his agencies are going to report he's not going to like. and you know what? it's what happens when you're not running your own organization or your campaign. you have got to get used to it. you're the leader of the government. >> let me come back in a second because i've been told, as we've been talking about crowd size, you've got news on the cia. >> just 20 minutes away from when the new president goes to address the cia. it's mike pompeo, not yet confirmed choice to run the cia, written answers said he's open to reinstate water boarding, a form of torture. we talk about how elections matter and of course, they do but appointments matter because this has been really, excuse the phrase, torture issue for the cia in recent years because when
11:40 am
the cia allowed torture to be used in the wake of 9/11 against terror suspects, just in the wake of that, first of all, legal issues but there was enormous regret inside, worry about damage to the organization and damage to american values. the cia has only begun to recover from. so now you have the incoming director saying he might reinstate it and keep in mind, that's in defiance of other senior military officers in the trump administration, secretary mattis among them who sat down with trump. >> if i could weigh? i went to school with mike pompeo. i went to west point. i've known mike pompeo since july of 1982. >> wow. >> and i can state unequivocally, unbelievable patriot and great individual of sterling character and what he said in his testimony during his testimony was he would ask the general council's office to re-examine all of those types of issues. he didn't say he was open to reinstating water boarding or
11:41 am
water board anybody but ask the general council's office. >> why don't i read it exactly. if confirmed, i will consult with experts of the agency and the u.s. government whether the army field manual which sets standard for interrogation is an impediment to gathering vital intelligence to protect the country. >> it doesn't say he's going to reinstate water boarding. >> i didn't say that. and here, he's making a judgment here. he's making a statement saying if it's an impediment, i might reconsider. i'm fairly certain i'm not reading into the comments. >> reinstate water boarding? >> i didn't say that, but he's open to it. >> the nomination delayed could now be delayed further down the road because you do have the likes of john mccain and lindsey graham and those 100% behind mike pompeo that might say, let us take a step back and learn about this further. >> this is the reason why mike
11:42 am
pompeo wasn't confirmed yesterday. ron wyden, the senator from oregon. he saw this testimony and said, whoa, whoa. i'm going to use my right as a senator to hold this up and there was a big blow-up on the senate floor about it and agreed to hold the vote. >> this is part of a bigger issue that the trump administration is facing in terms of their nominees. first of all, they've gotten a very slow start in confirmations as of this time with george bush and barack obama. they each had 7 or 8 of their cabinet already confirmed. donald trump only has two of them. and what, you know, i found over the last couple of days is that the number of appointments that they have made in these agencies and goes to the interior department where they're ready for what was happening. no, they're not ready anywhere because they hardly have any people in place to fill these jobs. >> got to go to break. >> one problem is the filibuster
11:43 am
because the democrats took it away from themselves. >> back to mike pompeo. >> it was 89-11, miami pompeo forward. so no doubt he's confirmed as the cia director. they're just slow walking him. >> cia, again, just a reminder to you watching and following along on this busy saturday with me, we will be seeing president trump from the cia giving remarks. of course, we'll take it live at the top of the hour but also watching these throngs of men and women, younger and older out today in full force marching for what they believe in. different issues they want mr. trump to listen to. we'll hear from some of these women coming upment rodney and his new business. he teaches lessons to stanley... and that's kind of it right now. but rodney knew just what to do...he got quickbooks. it organizes all his accounts, so he knows where he stands in an instant.
11:44 am
ahhh...that's a profit. which gave him the idea to spend a little cash on some brilliant marketing! ha, clever. wow, look at all these new students! way to grow, rodney! know where you stand instantly. visit

11:47 am
look live at these pictures in washington, dc, pennsylvania avenue shoulder to shoulder including our own suzanne melvoe. what are these people talking about? >> reporter: there was a moment with so many people packed here down and heading up towards the constitution. shoulder to shoulder and hard to breathe. people were a little afraid that there was going to be somewhat of a crush or a stampede. they candidaasked people not to because there was a sense of anxiety and concern in a sense, cleared out now and people are beginning to move a little bit but people are asking for calm here. i talked to a lot of women here, brooke, and their messages are are very simple and yet different. there was a woman who lost her mother that was very concerned about the change in the health care system. other young women for brooklyn who had come to praise obama and thank obama.
11:48 am
i talked to a man who was afraid gay rights go backwards. and that was something he was concerned about. so many different people and their concerns and madonna, i've been told. >> i'm going to cut you off, for give me. let's go to madonna. >> are you ready to shake up up the world? >> welcome to the revolution of love. to the rebellion. to our refusal as women to accept this new age of tyranny. where not just women are in danger but all marginalized

people. where people uniquely different might be considered a crime. it took us this darkness to wake us the up. it seems as though we had all slipped into a false sense of comfort. that justice would prevail and that good would win in the end. well, good did not win this election but good will win in the end. so what today means is that we are far from the end. today marks the beginning, the beginning of our story.
11:50 am
the revolution starts here. the fight for the right to be fr free, to be who we are, to be equal. let's march together through this darkness and with each step, know that we are not afraid. that we are not alone, that we will not back down. that there is power in our unity and that no opposing force stands a chance in the face of true solidarity.
11:51 am
and to our detractors that insist that this march will never add up to anything, f you. it is the beginning of much needed change. >> okay, we're going to pull out of that because of some of the language used. it was madonna. we didn't know what she was going to say. the one and only material girl on the stage. i spy amy schumer. it's a show of force with all of these celebrities. we heard donald trump say i don't need the celebrities ask the man won the election, but what do you make of her message? >> i think that this is
11:52 am
incredibly powerful and important, and the fact that there are so many people out there who suddenly feel like they have, as she was saying before she dropped the f bomb that they felt like at the end of the day, these are hillary clinton's supporters i'm talking about. that good would triumph over bad and that it didn't happen. that that was a wake-up call on election day to get people, especially young people, saw a lot of young people out there who have not known an adult life without barack obama whom they supported and were jarred, like, what happened? the question is whether or not the celebrities on stage who were out in full force, madonna, amy schumer, out in full force.
11:53 am
>> i just want to sit here and apologize for the multiple f-bombs by madonna that happen. we apologize at cnn for that. not often i get to say i was talking to cher this morning, but she was saying to me, brooke, i'm 70 and i've been through 12 presidents and she said, you know, when i think back to how far we've come as women and her thought was, it's incredible seeing all the young women out and about but they have no idea what it was like for her growing up and she got very serious talking about rape issues and women's voice and i think at least to see these young women out and about. >> she used some colorful language. let's remember, 24 hours ago and i'm not equating it but people during the inauguration chanting lock her up.
11:54 am
toke phu folks know the level of emotion on each side can reach a crescendo, not, these are people we love, right? we've all had debates like this around the table on a number of issues, is you see, frankly, i'm not surprised. that's what she's speaking to there and i'm sure were like, right on, just as when we were at the inauguration, is that the right place? but there were people high-fiving in the audience there because there's a level of emotion behind these political events. >> watching donald trump give his address and she was, i mean, i could just hear her moaning her, her weeping, her feeling what he was saying, it was. >> in support. >> in support. like she was a church and he was preaching and she was just so overwhelmed by the promise to the country and another woman this morning weeping for a very
