WASHINGTON (AP) — Fervent supporters of President Donald Trump rallied in
Washington on Saturday behind his spurious claim of a stolen election and
swarmed his motorcade when he detoured for a drive-by on his way out of
town.

“I just want to keep up his spirits and let him know we support him,” one
loyalist, Anthony Whittaker of Winchester, Virginia, said from outside the
Supreme Court, where a few thousand assembled after a march along
Pennsylvania Avenue from Freedom Plaza, near the White House.

A week after the presidential race was called for Democrat Joe Biden,
their fury at the prospect of a transfer of executive power showed no
signs of abating, taking a cue from a president unrelenting in asserting
he won an election he actually lost.

Trump persists even though a broad coalition of top government and
industry officials has declared that the Nov. 3 voting and the following
count unfolded smoothly with no more than the usual minor hiccups — “the
most secure in American history,” they said, repudiating his efforts to
undermine the integrity of the contest.

The crowd was beginning to gather in the morning when cheers rang out as
Trump’s limousine neared Freedom Plaza. People lined both sides of the
street. Some stood just a few feet away from Trump’s vehicle; others
showed their enthusiasm by running along with the caravan.

They chanted “USA, USA” and “four more years,” and many carried American
flags and signs to show their displeasure with the vote tally. After
making the short detour for the slow drive around the site, the motorcade
headed to the president’s Virginia golf club.

Among the speakers was a Georgia Republican newly elected to the U.S.
House. Marjorie Taylor Greene, who has expressed racist views and support
for QAnon conspiracy theories, urged people to march peacefully toward the
Supreme Court.

The marchers included members of the Proud Boys, a neo-fascist group known
for street brawling with ideological opponents at political rallies.

The march was largely peaceful, with some tension along the margins as
counterdemonstrators heckled the Trump supporters with chants of “You
lost!”

The “Million MAGA March” was heavily promoted on social media, raising
concerns that it could spark conflict with anti-Trump demonstrators, who
have gathered near the White House in Black Lives Matter Plaza for weeks.

In preparation, police closed off wide swaths of downtown, where many
stores and offices have been boarded up since Election Day. Chris
Rodriguez, director of the city’s Homeland Security and Emergency
Management Agency, said the police were experienced at keeping the peace.

The issues that Trump’s campaign and its allies have pointed to are
typical in every election: problems with signatures, secrecy envelopes and
postal marks on mail-in ballots, as well as the potential for a small
number of ballots miscast or lost. With Biden leading Trump by wide
margins in key battleground states, none of those issues would have any
impact on the outcome of the election.

Trump’s campaign has also filed legal challenges complaining that their
poll watchers were unable to scrutinize the voting process. Many of those
challenges have been tossed out by judges, some within hours of their
filing.

A former administration official, Sebastian Gorka, whipped up the crowd by
the Supreme Court by saying, “We can win because he did win.” But, he
added, “It’s going to be tough.”

If that's the case...

Nothing like circling the drain as a group effort...

Thousands profess their love for Trump
and he won't even speak to them.

The same cold shoulder treatment he
gave to all his wives, it seems.........
