History Repeats Itself on Donald Trump's NATO Trip

Dur­ing the Pres­i­den­tial cam­paign Don­ald Trump came to Worces­ter and though I had to be at work for 10:30 PM that night I went and cov­ered the event.

For a week there had been a bunch of buzz about the event and peo­ple of the left in deep blue Mass­a­chu­setts assured peo­ple that Don­ald Trump’s rally in the deep blue 2nd largest city in New Eng­land, a city with not one, not two but TEN col­leges in it would draw a huge amount of pro­test­ers so I was deter­mined to get down there to see and report myself.

I dis­cov­ered that the one thing miss­ing from the promised mas­sive protest was pro­test­ers.

The doors had just opened and peo­ple were fil­ing in but the press entrance was in the back so I went around see­ing a pair of guys sell­ing but­tons and a small group of pro­tes­tors, around 1015 some of whom were being inter­viewed.
Now granted that it was early but Worces­ter is the 2nd biggest city in New Eng­land, and a Demo­c­rat and Union Strong­hold it was kind of pathetic.

I com­mented on this and one of the women shouted back “some of us have to work you know.” I wasn’t aware that Gov­er­nor Baker was so suc­cess­ful that mil­lions of Democ­rats were now gain­fully employed that were not just a year ago. Given the buildup for days it was a joke almost as bad as the draw­ing 200 in NYC the largest city in the nation.

Dur­ing the press avail­abil­ity I asked then can­di­date Trump about this lack of promised protesters.

His com­ple­men­tary line graces my busi­ness card which doesn’t make me a lot of friends in Massachusetts.

Well appar­ently in Brus­sels where they were expect­ing thou­sands to protest Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump last week his­tory repeated itself:

But only a cou­ple of dozen peo­ple actu­ally showed up.

“Euro News’ Damon Embling reported that orga­niz­ers were expect­ing a few thou­sand peo­ple to attend the protest, but just a few dozen turned out,” NTK Net­work reported.

The pro­test­ers were ral­ly­ing around the slo­gan “Make Peace Great Again,” a play on Trump’s 2016 cam­paign slo­gan, “Make Amer­ica Great Again.”

Embling asked one of the orga­niz­ers why only a cou­ple dozen demon­stra­tors showed up at the protest.

“I think it’s, what went wrong is not the good ques­tion to ask,” the clearly frus­trated orga­nizer said.

The orga­nizer blamed Brus­sels being on lock­down for the low turnout before Embling ended the interview.

Alas I was not there to ask him about the lack of pro­test­ers I think his response would be news­wor­thy, but I seri­ously doubt that any­one in the MSM would dare ask such a ques­tion that might expose their read­ers and view­ers to this reality.

Oh and that sup­pos­edly mas­sive bal­loon? That was a bust too.

During the Presidential campaign Donald Trump came to Worcester and though I had to be at work for 10:30 PM that night I went and covered the event.

For a week there had been a bunch of buzz about the event and people of the left in deep blue Massachusetts assured people that Donald Trump’s rally in the deep blue 2nd largest city in New England, a city with not one, not two but TEN colleges in it would draw a huge amount of protesters so I was determined to get down there to see and report myself.

I discovered that the one thing missing from the promised massive protest was protesters.

The doors had just opened and people were filing in but the press entrance was in the back so I went around seeing a pair of guys selling buttons and a small group of protestors, around 10-15 some of whom were being interviewed.
Now granted that it was early but Worcester is the 2nd biggest city in New England, and a Democrat and Union Stronghold it was kind of pathetic.

I commented on this and one of the women shouted back “some of us have to work you know.” I wasn’t aware that Governor Baker was so successful that millions of Democrats were now gainfully employed that were not just a year ago. Given the buildup for days it was a joke almost as bad as the drawing 200 in NYC the largest city in the nation.

During the press availability I asked then candidate Trump about this lack of promised protesters.

His complementary line graces my business card which doesn’t make me a lot of friends in Massachusetts.

Well apparently in Brussels where they were expecting thousands to protest President Donald Trump last week history repeated itself:

But only a couple of dozen people actually showed up.

“Euro News’ Damon Embling reported that organizers were expecting a few thousand people to attend the protest, but just a few dozen turned out,” NTK Network reported.

The protesters were rallying around the slogan “Make Peace Great Again,” a play on Trump’s 2016 campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again.”

Embling asked one of the organizers why only a couple dozen demonstrators showed up at the protest.

“I think it’s, what went wrong is not the good question to ask,” the clearly frustrated organizer said.

The organizer blamed Brussels being on lockdown for the low turnout before Embling ended the interview.

Alas I was not there to ask him about the lack of protesters I think his response would be newsworthy, but I seriously doubt that anyone in the MSM would dare ask such a question that might expose their readers and viewers to this reality.

Oh and that supposedly massive balloon?  That was a bust too.
