[COMMENTARY] QAnons and Proud Boys Rally in Front of White House
Donald Trump lost the 2020 Presidential Election, and it wasn’t even close. But you can’t tell that to his willfully obtuse remaining faithful, who continue to insist on social media that the election is going to be overturned and Joe Biden will never set foot in the White House. It’s kind of fascinating to see this level of groupthink even after Trump has lost 56 appeals to overturn the results, including Friday’s rejection from the Supreme Court. Trump loves the poorly educated because they’re the easiest to keep grifting even after historic losses.
Why does Trump draw the dregs of society? The has-been 80s actors, the lunatics on the fringe, the less educated, the aggro males, and the women they subjugate? These are people who can be shown scientific proof of a deadly pandemic and mathematical proof Trump lost the election, and they will happily and aggressively deny it. You cannot win an argument with any of them, because they will not believe anything you show them. However, those same people–Proud Boys and QAnons–also believe JFK Jr is alive and well and was walking amongst them at a pro-Trump rally in front of the White House on Saturday.
No, really, they believe this.

Ahead of the Denial Rally, one of the leaders of the far-right Proud Boys tried to pass off a White House public tour as an official visit Saturday. Enrique Tarrio posted a picture on Parler above a photo of the main entrance to the White House. “Last minute invite to an undisclosed location,” he commented. A second post showed the main portico, with the comment, “Never thought I’d be here.”
Just before noon at the Freedom Plaza in DC for the “March for Trump.” Crowd is chanting “USA!” and “Stop The Steal” ahead of things officially kicking off. Members of the far-right group Proud Boys can be seen throughout the crowd. Covering today on @MSNBC pic.twitter.com/9tStG3D4jK

But the White House said Tarrio was just on a public White House Christmas tour. “He did not have a meeting with the president, nor did the White House invite him,” a statement said.
These people can’t even lie well, it’s painfully pathetic.
Pro-Trump rallies are getting underway, though turnout is less than it was in Nov. when thousands of Trump loyalists packed the city. Already though, fights broke out overnight as Proud Boys roamed #DC streets. Five people were arrested. Read more here: https://t.co/Vyp4EBG0nx

So they’re out there in front of the White House, whining and crying and causing fights over not accepting their loss when Hillary Clinton managed to concede the day after the 2016 Presidential Election was called for Trump. Every day they continue this nonsense is another day where they look even dumber than the day before.
The 2020 Presidential Election has been called for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. The Electoral College meets on Monday to officially cast their ballots, which will be counted and certified by Congress on January 6, 2021.
JFK Jr is not expected to attend, but maybe the My Pillow Guy will.
This is a cult.
