Tiny Crowd Reveals Up To Help Trump At Trial

Though a “couple million” Trump supporters dwell inside an hour of his trial on Monday, solely an estimated 50 confirmed up.

Lawrence O’Donnell shared:

This tepid present of assist isn’t new for Trump throughout his authorized battles, it began final 12 months.

A few of this may be attributed to the truth that as of January of 2024, roughly “749 federal defendants have had their cases adjudicated and received sentences for their criminal activity on Jan. 6. Approximately 467 have been sentenced to periods of incarceration,” in keeping with the District of Columbia.

So it may very well be that Trump’s supporters concern authorized ramifications for any potential mob sort exercise they may get ensnared in, which might be an ironic results of Trump enablers conflating peaceable protests with what Trump and his supporters truly did on January sixth, which was described by Dir. Wray as a terrorist assault.

The opposite a part of that is it may very well be extra of what we witness on the bottom in Trump nation, which is a big drop in seen assist even from his most ardent supporters.

This may very well be as a consequence of Trump fatigue, which isn’t the identical factor as individuals who aren’t going to vote for his or her candidate once more. However no political candidate would hope to enter an election sans enthusiasm from their largest supporters.

Somebody replied that whereas Trump supporters didn’t present up in big numbers, Trump critics actually made an look:

Donald Trump is being upheld as a viable political candidate by the get together he’s taken over and by a craven media in search of the Trump bucks courtesy of his 2016 marketing campaign and his 4 chaotic years.
