We don’t have exact figures, but the crowd is not remotely close to a million people. https://t.co/J4y0IJp2xm

Thousands of flag-bearing and camouflaged Trump supporters — including Proud Boys and Boogaloo Boys — took to the streets of the nation’s capital on Saturday for what has been dubbed the “Million MAGA March,” a protest in support of President Donald Trump’s false claim that he was cheated out of an election win.
The president, who has yet to concede his loss to President-elect Joe Biden, even made an appearance at the march. Just after 10 am, Trump’s motorcade took a spin down Pennsylvania Avenue, with the president smiling and waving to a throng of fans — most not wearing masks — in Freedom Plaza. Trump quickly left the protest area, on his way to Trump National Golf Club in the Virginia suburbs.
What kind of politician ignores his supporters to go golfing when they’re at his own rally?

Here is how the sheep responded when they saw Trump’s motorcade approach.

Kind of like cockroaches responding to dropped food.
The cockroaches of course were thrilled to glimpse their hero.

“He drove right past me. I saw him. He waved right past me,” one man said, squatting to collect himself.
I wonder how that guy felt when he heard that Trump drove through them so that he could get to a golf course and relax while they marched on the streets in support of his right to keep living rent-free in the White House?
There were a number of clashes with counter-protesters but since Washington DC is not an open-carry state nobody was badly hurt.
I am not sure these Proud Boys are actually capable of hurting anyone based on their candy ass initiation ritual.

So clearly this exercise in stupidity is not going to prolong Trump’s time in office and I don’t think anybody needs to be too concerned about any civil war busting out if these yahoos are the ones who threatened to take on the National Guard.
