Rachel Maddow highlights Trump’s humiliating lack of protesters
Rachel Maddow shows the humiliation of Trump calling for protests and no one showing up.
I mean, it’s one thing if people don’t come out and protest in your defense. But if you specifically ask them to, if you actually tell them to, and they don’t, what does that say about you? Trump said last year that if any prosecutor indicted him, quote, the United States would have the biggest protest we’ve ever had. He said in Washington, DC, in New York, in Atlanta and elsewhere. We’re going to have the biggest protest we’ve ever had in this country. He said that would be the outcome in all jurisdictions, he said again in September.
He was asked if he would be charged, he replied I think it might happen. I think you would have problems in this country like perhaps we have never seen before. I don’t think the people of the United States would stand for it now, we know the people of the United States stand for it, it turns out, and we’ll see how it is tomorrow, we’ll see If tomorrow there will be millions of people filling the streets protesting in Manhattan, maybe there will be. Who knows?
He urged people to protest, protest, protest, in response to the news of his indictment, his demands, his demands, were for people to take to the streets in record numbers for him. A number we have never seen before. Protests like we’ve never seen in America before. So far his people are not doing what he told them and what he said confidently, but who knows? Who knows? We’ll see what happens tomorrow.
Rachel Maddow was right. What does it say about Trump when he asked his supporters to show up and they didn’t? Trump has promised that if he is indicted, violence will be used on his behalf.
Now that he’s been indicted, Trump has been trying to get these people out on the streets and they haven’t shown up.
Trump’s ability to incite violence on his behalf has been exposed.
Donald Trump called for protests and got nothing.
