“Change might not happen in our lifetime but that doesn’t mean we don’t do the work.”
Comedian Cristela Alonzo appeared on “The View” this week to talk about her experience participating in the Women’s March on Washington. The panel asked Alonzo to speak about several misconceptions about the march, one of those being that the “march’s official platform called for open access to safe, legal, affordable abortion and birth control for all people.” Alonzo set the record straight, saying that the march was about way more than just birth control, like “equal rights, equal pay, [and] immigration.”
Alonzo’s focus then shifted to talking about “the wall” Trump has promised to build on the U.S.-Mexico border. Pulling from her own stand-up act, Alonzo’s rant about Trump’s proposed wall got the biggest laughs of the segment, saying, “Trump’s going to build a wall? First of all, doesn’t he know we use tunnels now? Did you see that tunnel ‘Chapo’ had? It looked like a Disneyland ride.” Watch the entire clip above.
