The White House released its first official response to the women's marches yesterday after Press Secretary Sean Spicer ignored shouted questions about the matter on Saturday, NBC News reported.
The statement from a Trump administration official said it was a "shame" that the March for Life next Friday "will not get anywhere near the same amount of coverage that this march got—and those pro-life members were NOT welcome at the Women’s March."
The White House also called out Madonna, one of many celebrities to speak at marches across the country, for telling crowds that she had "thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House."
State emergency management officials say 11 people are dead and 23 are injured after severe weather struck central Georgia.
Catherine Howden of the Georgia Emergency Management Agency said Sunday morning that the deaths occurred in Cook, Brooks and Berrien counties.
She said the deaths were related to severe weather but could not specify whether tornadoes were the cause. Tornado warnings had been issued for parts of Georgia overnight.
President Donald Trump, who spent his first full day in office berating the media over their coverage of his inauguration, will spend Sunday engaged in more routine matters, like overseeing the swearing in of high-level staffers.
On the second full day of his administration, Trump will see the "assistants to the president" sworn in, according to his press secretary, Sean Spicer. He'll also hold a reception for law enforcement officers and first responders who helped with his inauguration as he celebrates his 12th wedding anniversary.
Trump has said that he'll consider Monday his first real day in office.

Hundreds of thousands of women and men, many wearing pink, pointy-eared "pussyhats" to mock the new president, poured into the nation's capital by bus, car and train Saturday for a march aimed at showing Donald Trump they won't be silent over the next four years. "We march today for the moral core of this nation, against which our new president is waging a war," actress America Ferrera told the crowd in Washington. "Our dignity, our character, our rights have all been under attack and a platform of hate and division assumed power yesterday. But the president is not America. ... We are America and we are here to stay." A massive turnout packed the entire route of the Women's March on Washington, preventing organizers from leading the formal march toward the White House. Instead of trekking en masse to the Ellipse by the White House as planned, the protesters were told to make their way there on their own by way of other streets.

Red, white and blue balloons rained down over crystal chandeliers in the soaring atrium of the Trump International Hotel at midnight in "a new inaugural tradition," its social media account promised.
But while President Donald Trump's hotel in Washington did serve as a hub of Friday's inaugural activities, it also stands as ground zero for what top Democrats and some ethics advisers see as his unique web of conflicts of interest.
The government's General Services Administration previously said it would refrain from commenting on the apparent contract violation until Trump took office, which he did at noon Friday. The agency did not respond to the Associated Press's requests for comment.

The new White House press secretary used his first press briefing to launch a furious tirade against media coverage of President Donald Trump's inauguration, calling it "shameful and wrong" for focusing on the fact that it was noticeably smaller than Barack Obama's in 2009. Sean Spicer harangued the media for not taking the administration's point of view on how to cover Trump's inauguration, and claimed that the National Mall was full during the president's oath of office when photographs from multiple vantage points showed that it wasn't. "This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period, both in person and around the globe," Spicer said. "These attempts to lessen the enthusiasm of the inauguration are shameful and wrong."

Presidents typically avoid facts and figures when delivering inaugural addresses, serving up a blend of broad platitudes and generalities to lay out a vision. President Donald Trump was no different in that regard.
Police are searching for a man accused of attacking a transgender woman while yelling homophobic slurs in Center City Philadelphia Friday.
Ryannah Quigley, 23, of Seattle, Washington, told NBC10 she was attending the Creating Change conference in Philadelphia. She said she was walking along the 1300 block of Filbert Street at 4:40 p.m. Friday with two of her friends when an unidentified man began staring at her. She greeted the man, but he continued to stare at her.
"I said, 'Is there a reason why you're staring at me up and down?' And he stopped and turned and looked and he said, 'Whatever bro.' So that's when I said, 'Please don't call me bro,'" Quigley told NBC10.

Donald Trump promised an “unbelievable, perhaps record-setting turnout” for his inauguration but crowd estimates, though difficult to gauge, appear to cast doubt on that claim.

A spokesperson for George H.W. Bush said the health of the former president and former first lady Barbara Bush is improving.
In a statement, Jim McGrath said the President will remain in the Intensive Care Unit of Houston Methodist Hospital for a few more days. However, he no longer requires mechanical assistance for breathing.
"His spirits are high, and he is looking forward to getting back to a regular schedule. In fact, he called his office last night at 6:30 p.m. to check on his staff," said the statement from McGrath.
