Greg Gutfeld criticized the thousands of protesters who disrupted commerce in Downtown Washington, D.C. on Friday, while, across town on Capitol Hill, Donald Trump was being sworn in as the nation's 45th president.

"Protesters smashed windows at a bank and a Starbucks," he recounted, "Sorry, did I say protesters? I meant cowardly thugs with hygiene issues."

He mocked them for also destroying a WMATA bus shelter: "You really showed those little old ladies."

"It seems only one side engages in this [violence]," he said, a reference to the dearth of similar protests when Democratic President Barack Obama was elected in 2008, "I get it, you're upset; your choice didn't win."

Gutfeld also hammered Madonna for telling a large crowd during a women's march that she "thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House".

To the protesters, he advised, "Despite the outcome, accept that the process is the greatest on Earth."
