A weekend gathering in Palm Beach, Florida, garnered more than 3,000 people who got together to march against President Trump’s policies. The infamous Casey Anthony, rarely seen in public, was spotted in the crowd.
WPTV reports that Anthony, notorious for her acquittal in the 2011 murder trial of her daughter, Caylee Anthony, was spotted on Saturday near the Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, where she joined others who chanted and marched with picket signs. Trump was inside the resort over the weekend.

Although local reporters asked Anthony for an on-air interview, she declined. She did, however, indicate she was in attendance because she didn’t agree with some of Trump’s policies.
Many people found irony in the situation. One Twitter user wrote that while protesters stood next to someone like Casey Anthony and welcomed her, they continued to bash someone who wants to “make America great again.” Another Twitter user wrote, “Moms who murder their kids against Trump.”

The protest march, which covered a little over 2 miles, was organized by South Florida Activism and Women’s March Florida PBC.
The event marked one of the first times Anthony has been seen in public since her acquittal. In 2015, she was spotted leaving a building in NYC with her public relations executive. A number of people speculated she was in New York making a deal for an upcoming TV interview with a prominent network; so far, she’s not given any public interviews.
Casey Anthony, who filed for bankruptcy a few years ago, currently lives in a 2,000 square-foot-home in West Palm Beach.
