We Spoke to a Lone Trump Supporter at Biden's Inauguration

With heightened security and pandemic precautions, the streets of Washington, DC were mostly empty on the day of Joe Biden’s inauguration. Despite vowing to once again storm the Capitol, Trump supporters were nowhere to be seen. We spoke to one man in a MAGA hat who traveled from New York for a rally that never happened.

    An rather nuanced and knowledgeable man. I hope more Trump supporters will take his example, as time goes by. What he suggests at the end of the interview is that there will be a Trump party, or something, while probably only Trumpists and traditional Republicans combined stand a chance to win future elections. I'm curious what he would think about that.

    If he’s the only one there supporting Trump and he’s a hard-core Trump supporter he makes no sense in what he saying. This guy is fake!!! No way a guy he would speaks against Republicans in the way he is. His probably in an antifa dressed up as a Trump supporter to instigate. Trump supporters did not fall in the trap of being set up again.

    You guys are all idiots 🙄😒 huh take a look at this video really analyze it. If you can't that's OK I will do it for you. First off who has heard of this news station honestly. Second the man he interviewed is not wearing a mask why is this important because people that you know you usually don't mind having there mask off. Third if you remember the inauguration ceremony wasn't supposed to have anyone there in the first place it was supposed to be the political figures and military do to the raid on the capital and covid-19. Forth literally every single Trumper that was in that city went to capital hill and now most likely have a warrant out for there arrest or have already been arrested. Fifth of all in that entire video you only saw 3 people that were supporters of Biden 1 was the man walking down the street with a flag for Biden and 2 was a happy couple holding a flag from what the man said and what the video shows there were more Trump people than Biden people. They try and confuse you with the flags and Biden merchandise because this is supposed to be a diss on Trump and Trump supporters making it seem like we are down and out like a sore Loser.

    D Trump and all his family screwed his supporting rioters (and the ones that died) at the capitol hill raid by denying he incited anything to them, yet it was clear they where acting under his words. -- Once his reputation is in danger, he will drop you so quick, you wont see it coming -- -- Trump supporters are IDIOTS who dont do enough research about him, he's just another Walter mitty --

Half the people scream no jobs, but Mexicans can come here and make damned good livings. Half the people want to rob the rich, yet if you took that same percentage daily from them they would kill you. Half the people just have been so used to getting their own way, they cant stand to be told no. The country is made up by the people, so is the government, so if the country sucks for either side, look in the mirror for the reason, THATS the only thing "you" can change.....
