March4Trump Patriots gathered to Support Our President.
Standing Rock Climate Leftist Loons and their Comrades-in-arms
The march to Trump Tower was set to start at about 2 pm. While waiting, there was lots of music. In spite of the cold, the musicians seemed to manage.
Including a familiar pro-Trump patriot.
Never dull, visually: Donald Puppets, expected.
And disenchanted, brain-washed millennials, like this mother and her dutiful spawn.
Always disappointed to see such sweet children sent down this path of global, anti-Americanism.
The themes and complaints from the Leftists were many, as the Flickr slide show reveals:
Couldn't walk with them – still dealing with my plantar churl – so bussed it to 56th street where I caught up with the March4Trump Rally.
Surprised to locate them at 57th street, a block from Trump Tower. The police had moved them further from the tower (and these are the GOOD guys!)
Scheduled from Noon to 3 pm, it was about 2:30, and they had a great group assembled. Diverse as always, NOT a group of WHITE supremacists. Never.
Considering the COLD, and CONTRARY to the odd media counts of only125, this late in the rally I saw a healthy turnout; the March4Trumpers still filled the block.
They were in the midst of a SPIRITED exchange with some anti-Trump stragglers (who obviously had not gone to the library).
The police kindly reminded the anti-Trumpers (who politely resisted) that they must go to their assigned location at 55th and Fifth. SLOWLY they agreed to go back to 56th st., puppets and all.
From the NYPL on 42nd street, to 57th and Fifth, found a LOUD show of Support or Resistance (depending on whose side they were on) with signs, shouting and cheering. (video)
It was a civilized exit EXCEPT for the rude finger-jabbing from this well-dressed “lady”. She very much enjoyed flipping-off the PRO-Trumpers.
Becoming a bit shy once she saw my camera.

Typically from the LEFT their strolling musicians brought a bit of NOLA Mardi Gras to the scene. I must admit it was pleasing to the ear. (video)
In conclusion, as I looked for media recaps, found this report from the NY Post. It mentions the separating of the opposing factions before I arrived .
++ Also, found a video dealing with that relocation of the March4Trumpers ++
Another day on the streets of Manhattan. The Left never rests. Neither should we. March on. March on.
