During the campaign season Antonio Sabato, Jr. (ex-Jagger Cates, “General Hospital”) spoke earlier this year at the Republican National convention in support of Donald Trump. Afterward he said he felt ostracized in left-leaning Hollywood because of this. However, he has remained steadfast. He not only went to the inauguration Friday, but Tweeted about it often.

Supporters of the March

On Saturday, hundreds of thousands of protesters gathered in Washington, D.C., just blocks from the White  House inspired by their opposition to Trump. Gatherers convened under the banner, “Women’s March on Washington.” Sister marches took place around the country and world. Among attendees in D.C. and other U.S. cities were soap stars who penned online posts about attendance at the marches or in support of them. Other daytime notables couldn’t be there, but voiced their support of marchers.

Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis Davis, “General Hospital), Karla Mosley (Maya Avant, “Bold and the Beautiful”), and Greg Rikaart (Kevin Fisher) counted themselves among the marches’ supporters. All three voiced opposition to Trump during the campaign season or since he was elected.
