Fox News cuts away from ‘Save America’ rally after Don Jr.’s expletive-laden, anti-trans rant

Fox News was airing Donald Trump's "Save America" rally live on Wednesday morning when the president's son, Don Jr., went on a bizarre, expletive-laden, anti-transgender rant. "To all of you red-blooded patriotic Americans, thank you for being in this fight with us," Don Jr. told the crowd. "Thank you for standing up to the bullshit. Amen and a-woman, right?" he said, mocking Democratic Congressman Emanuel Cleaver's opening prayer from Sunday, which was a tribute to the record number of women serving in the new Congress. When the crowd booed, Don Jr. added: "I know, but that shows you literally the mentality of where the Democrat Party is, right? I think I put it up on my Instagram, which is being censored to hell right now, but I put it up yesterday. They spent money on a study, that came to the incredible conclusion yesterday, that trans women playing in female sports have a competitive advantage. No shit! Who could have seen that coming? I had no idea!" At that point, even State TV dropped its live feed. Watch:

Trump-loving pastor: If Mike Pence doesn't overturn election, it's  because Dems have blackmail pictures of VP

Trump-loving megachurch pastor Greg Locke says if Vice President Mike Pence doesn't somehow overturn the presidential election on Wednesday (which he can't do), it means that Democrats must have blackmail photos of the vice president. Locke, the radical right-wing leader of Global Vision Bible Church in Tennessee, is among those scheduled to speech at Trump's "March to Save America" rally in Washington on Wednesday. "Mike Pence is about to show his true colors in this nation," Locke said this week during his Sunday sermon, in a clip posted by Right Wing Watch. "He's a principled guy — I thought. This joker may turn out to be one of the worst RINOs we've seen. I know you think I'm crazy right now, but you watch.  Mike Pence ain't got but two plays. He ain't got but two plays, and he's either going to try to bring down the whole house of cards, or he's going to bow out gracefully, because you'll be shocked how many of them Democrats don't have those people on their side, but they got pictures. You better be careful what you've been searching on the Internet, because someone's gonna blackmail you one day." Right Wing Watch reports that Locke also claimed during his sermon that in 2021, God will "dethrone" House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, destroy the state of New York, remove California Gov. Gavin Newsom from power and expose the Clinton’s supposed involvement in “pedophile sex-trafficking rings.” Watch below.

‘We ain’t got your back no more!’: Pro-Trump protesters assault and threaten DC police on eve of ‘Save America’ rally

Two officers were hospitalized Tuesday night after hundreds of Trump supporters reportedly rushed a police line near Black Lives Matter Plaza in Washington.

Video posted to Twitter by Brendan Gutenschwager, an independent journalist, shows the clash that occurred just before 10:15 p.m. at BLM Plaza and I Street NW, on the eve of today's "March for Trump/Save America" rally.

About 200 Trump supporters marched to the police line, according to a report from the Washington Post.

"Punches were thrown at the line and a woman was bloodied," the newspaper reported. "Police used pepper spray to help disperse the crowd. It was unclear how the clash started or whether any arrests were made. A D.C. Fire and EMS Department spokesman said a woman and two D.C. police officers were taken to a hospital with minor injuries."

NBC News reported that as of 9 p.m. Tuesday, six people had been arrested in connection with the protests on the eve of today's rally. Charges included carrying firearms without a license, possession of unregistered ammunition and firearms, and assaulting a police officer.

In another video posted by Gutenschwager, Trump supporters can be seen screaming at police.

"You don't want to fuckin' protect the Constitution, so you lost both sides of support," one protester tells the officers. "We had your fuckin' back, but we don't have your back no more. We're the veterans, we're the business owners, and we had your back, but we ain't got your back no more, because you don't got our back."

"Heads are gonna roll!" another protester screams repeatedly.
