Monday pro-Trump rallies a massive flop as event photos show tiny crowds

Published

on

President Donald Trump last week called on his supporters to hold massive rallies on his behalf, and on Monday some of them did their best to meet his demands.

However, although Trump predicted that pro-Trump rallies would be the “biggest of them all,” photos from around the country show sparsely attended events that at most show a couple hundred people in a given location.

Toronto Star reporter Daniel Dale posted some photos that he’s seen around Twitter that show tiny crowds at assorted Trump rallies. Dale notes that pro-Trump news website Breitbart predicted the events would be “massive.”

Taking a look at specific locations, the pro-Trump rally in Raleigh, North Carolina featured a tiny crowd of dozens of people:

The crowds were similarly small in downtown Atlanta.

In St. Augustine, Florida, meanwhile, it appeared that maybe 100 people showed up to rally behind the president.

And in Denver, a local photographer estimates that around 200 people attended a pro-Trump rally in front of the state capitol.

Here, meanwhile, was the scene in Bellingham, Washington:

For comparison, the first anti-Trump Women’s March in Washington, D.C. drew hundreds of thousands of demonstrators, while millions more marched with them in solidarity in cities around the country.

The only option open to the Democrats has been to go to court with their case outlining how the White House is breaking the law. Thus far, they've won two lawsuits about their investigations, and they will likely gain more.

Trump says if GOP paid for Steele dossier ‘there’d be hell to pay’ — Republicans paid for half of it

Published

on

President Donald Trump tweeted out once again that he doesn't know the difference between a man hired to do opposition research and an entire country intruding on an election to sway the result.

In a Sunday Twitter rant, Trump proclaimed that if Republicans had done something like that, "there'd be hell to pay."

......If Republicans ever did that to the Democrats, there would be all hell to pay. It would be a scandal like no other!

Donald Trump: ‘I’m actually a very honest guy’

Published

on

During an interview with ABC News that aired on Sunday, President Donald Trump said that he resented former special counsel Robert Mueller's report because it didn't tell "the truth" and he is an "honest guy"... but also said that he would not have a problem with accepting dirt on a political opponent from a foreign power.

The comments about Trump being an "honest guy" occurred when the president segued to the topic of the Mueller report after an unrelated question about polling in the upcoming 2020 presidential election.
