Nazis and White Supremacists were largely outnumbered by the counter protests in Washington, DC, Sunday. But their numbers were so few that even police vastly outnumbered the far-right, according to CNN.
Police surrounded the United the Right protesters as they marched to Layfete Square clad in khakis. Police surrounded them as counter-protesters and media walked along the sidewalk beside them.

More media and supporters watched the burning of Nazi and Confederate flags than who attended the United the Right Rally.

Counter-protesters were so overwhelming that they spilled out into the sidewalks surrounding Freedom Plaza.

‘Don’t you dare!’ CNN’s Brian Stelter gets into shouting match with conservative over Hunter Biden story
CNN media correspondent Brian Stelter and Washington Examiner correspondent Susan Ferrechio tangled on BBC radio on Wednesday during a discussion about how conservative media have hyped a political attack on Joe Biden's son.
During a panel discussion that included the corruption allegations against Biden and his son, Ferrechio complained that most mainstream media outlets have not publicized the report, which was first published by the New York Post.
"The bottom line is it deserves scrutiny by all media outlets," Ferrechio said. "And if they pick and choose this and decide it's not worth their time, I think that's showing real bias."
REVEALED: Trump’s racist attitude toward Black workers detailed in former associate’s new book
On CNN's "New Day" Wednesday, former Trump Organization executive Barbara Res opened up and provided new details about a racist incident she described in her new book about President Donald Trump.
"There was a Black man grinding the concrete on the second floor of the building when it was wide open and you could see — you could see it from the street and that's — and he saw it from his office or the building lobby, and that's what upset him, and he called me and another person and he said, I don't want that to happen again. We don't want people thinking that this is being built by Black people," said Res. "Later, I was interviewing architectural students for a plant clerk job, and I had a young man waiting for me in the lobby, I was across the building and after I interviewed him I saw Donald, he grabbed someone, told me he needs to see you. He said don't ever let that happen again, I don't want black kids sitting in my lobby where millionaires are coming in to buy apartments. Don't let that happen."
