Last week, those in the mainstream media gleefully called the final battleground states that provided them with the opportunity to declare former Vice President Joe Biden as America’s newly-minted president-elect.
But as we all know, there are tens of millions of Americans who refuse to accept the media’s declaration of a Biden victory and that’s why, according to The Hill, tens of thousands of Trump supporters flocked to Washington D.C. for a peaceful protest over the weekend to show their solidarity for President Donald Trump.
Who showed up?
In the wake of the November 3 election, several large pro-Trump groups like “Women For Trump,” “Million MAGA March” and others agreed to come together to show support for Trump as his lawyers continue battling in court to preserve American election integrity.
Tea Party leader Amy Kremer and her group “Women For America First” kicked off the large event, which garnered tens of thousands of red, white and blue-clad supporters of the president breaking into chants of “Four more years!”
Many supporters raised handmade signs in protest of perceived ballot and voter fraud that they believe took place during the 2020 election, with sayings like “Count every legal vote” and “StopTheSteal” painted on them.
Even controversial radio host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones made an appearance, telling an audience, “It will be weeks, maybe months, but we will stick with this president, Donald J. Trump.”
Not surprisingly, while the media’s overall coverage of the event was faint, they were quick to report that roughly 100 members of the “Proud Boys” were in attendance — the group that the mainstream media associates with white supremacy at every turn.
After teasing that he might make an appearance at the friendly protest, Trump came through on his promise as he had his motorcade make a pass through the swelling crowds so that he could wave and acknowledge their support.
Many in the crowd immediately burst into a chant of “USA, USA, USA!” and other chants of support as Trump rolled through in his presidential vehicle.

Perhaps one of the finest moments at the rally happened when a large number of those in attendance began singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” in unison, videos of which immediately went viral, according to the Washington Examiner.
