This commentary on the ‘March 4 Trump’ rallies, by Andy Campbell of the Huffington Post, reveals the spectacular failure of pro-Trump rallies that had been organised across the country. More so, when compared to the huge crowds of hundreds of thousands that have been participating in anti-Trump-rallies. This is important, because it indicates that everything is not well in Trumpland. Perhaps the bandwagon is already losing momentum.
And with the help of Trump protesters, many of the crowds appeared to top dozens of people or more.
To be sure, there were throngs of people in cities like Nashville, Tennessee, parts of Florida and some other states. And crowds were decidedly bigger than that really sad, lonely one in Maine. But the “March 4 Trump” rallies Saturday showed a stark contrast between crowds in support of the president and the hundreds of thousands of people who swept the nation in protest over the past few months.
According to organizers at March4Trump.org, the rallies were held for just that ― support of the president:
Speakers at various demonstrations railed against the media and protesters, called for Obama and 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to be jailed, accused Democrats of “forgetting 9/11” by electing the 44th president and generally lamented people lamenting Trump.
“Hoping that our president fails ― our president who is the captain of the American ship ― if you hope he fails, we will all sink on that ship,” one speaker said at a rally in Washington, D.C.
Trump, who was scheduled to stay at the Mar-a-Lago Club over the weekend, reportedly stopped a motorcade in Palm Beach to wave at supporters.
