Donald Trump to be indicted by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg this week over the $130,000 he allegedly paid to adult film star Stormy Daniels during his 2016 presidential campaign.Last weekend, Trump called on his supporters to protest his expected indictment.
In response, NYPD set up metal barricades outside the Manhattan Criminal Court, where the 76-year-old, one-term, twice-impeached ex-president is expected to be arraigned, as well as outside nearby Trump Tower.But it turned out the barricades weren’t needed.
When Monday finally rolled around, very few people MAGA maniacs actually heeded Trump’s call. And by “very few” we mean, like, less than 50 of them gathered outside the courthouse.
There were more reporters, onlookers, dogwalkers, nannies with strollers, and other casual passersby.I’m at the pro-Trump protest put on by the NY Young Republicans Club.
