Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder, his wife Jill, and Chris Cornell’s daughter Lily attended the Women’s March on Saturday protesting President Donald Trump.
The President tweeted in response to the march, “Beautiful weather all over our great country, a perfect day for all Women to March. Get out there now to celebrate the historic milestones and unprecedented economic success and wealth creation that has taken place over the last 12 months. Lowest female unemployment in 18 years!”

Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder made a surprise appearance during Liam Finn’s set at the Ohana Festival last year in Dana Point, CA. Vedder performed Pearl Jam’s “Habit” with Finn, and changed the lyric ‘speaking as a child of the 90’s’ to ‘speaking as a child of the fucked up Trump generation.’
During Vedder’s headlining set at Ohana on Saturday, he discussed climate change and President Trump’s administration dismantling the EPA. “I’m not talking about politics. I am talking about love. Love for the planet. So this is for everyone in the Southeast. I hope they get through the weekend.”
Also during Vedder’s headlining set, he changed the lyrics of the Pearl Jam track “Sometimes” to diss President Trump. He sang, “You’re Trump and you got small hands, the orange blends, the challenges you give man.” The ‘small hands’ comment was a reference to opponents of Trump, including Senator Marco Rubio, saying during the 2016 campaign that he had ‘small hands’ which implied that he had a small penis. Trump then shot back at a debate that there was ‘no problem’ with the size of his hands, or ‘anything else.’
A woman in the crowd shouted at Eddie to “just play songs” every time he made a political comment. Another fan shouted “shut up and play your damn guitar.” Many fans though seemed fine with Vedder’s liberal comments.
