My wife met in the lobby a couple from Florida and a Vietnam vet and his AF vet daughter from Delaware. We decided to go as a group on Metro from Virginia to the Washington Monument.
A boarded up statue of MLK?
The crowd was large and happy. Lots of vendors selling Trump flags. It’s possible that Antifa types bought some to use later that day.
We ran into people who were at the center of the rally in the Ellipse. They said that it took them an hour to walk out of the massive crowd. We eventually walked towards the White House. You couldn’t get close to it. Lots of boarded-up buildings near the White House.
A group associated with Eric Schmidt is pro BLM.
Lots of police protecting BLM Plaza. Some things are sacred today.
Antifa types next to BLM plaza. They doubtless have been prosecuted by the DC authorities. That was especially the case when they attacked Rand Paul. /sarc
We left DC around 1:15 and thus did not witness the later events at the Capitol.Published in
