Last night we reported that Donald Trump revoked the Twitter privileges of the National Park Service after it dared to tweet about the low attendance for his inauguration, sending a clear signal that he intends to punish any government agencies which refuse to play along with his propaganda. But it appears the Smithsonian Institution isn’t afraid of Trump, because today it not only tweeted about the huge protests against him, it also made a point of assisting the Women’s March participants.
The official Twitter account for the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian made a point of opening its doors today for Women’s March protesters who needed to use its restrooms. It also announced that it was “working on access for people in need of rest, water.” Then the Smithsonian took things further by tweeting “see photo: Yikes!” along with the hashtag #WomensMarchOnWashington and included this photo of the scene outside its door:
Thus far there’s no word of the Smithsonian having its Twitter privileges taken away by Donald Trump.
