President Trump appeared at what could be the very last rally of his presidency on Wednesday morning, which later sparked mass chaos.
Although the mainstream media characterized yesterday’s events as “terrorism” and “treasonous,” I’m here to give you the facts as I was there to witness them firsthand.
On Wednesday morning, hundreds of thousands of patriots flocked to The Ellipse on the South Lawn of the White House, where President Trump later took the stage.
The event, which began at 9 AM, saw what could be close to a million Trump supporters who came to hear headliners such as Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, Eric Trump, and the president himself speak on the issue of voter fraud.
Not a single one of those supporters caused even a hint of violence at the rally, which went on for several hours.

The president urged Vice President Mike Pence to use his power under the U.S. Constitution to overturn the awaited January 6th certification of the Electoral College.
To answer questions as to whether Pence did or didn’t actually have that power—he did, however, the precedent it sets is dangerous for the future of elections.
Jenna Ellis said it best on Twitter, “I am deeply disappointed in @Mike_Pence. The Constitution constrains, yes, and that’s why we worked hard to provide him with a constitutional option to protect election integrity.”
“BUT, he should not have been in that position—state leadership was cowardly first; SCOTUS was also.”
There was a pathway for Pence to object, but it is an unprecedented path that could lead to tyranny later on.
Nevertheless, President Trump urged his loyal Vice President to overturn the results, in which case “we win,” as he described it.
Later in the afternoon, Pence issued a statement where he said he does not believe he has the Constitutional authority to overturn the results.
“As a student of history who loves the Constitution and reveres its Framers, I do not believe that the Founders of our country intended to invest the Vice President with unilateral authority to decide which electoral votes should be counted during the Joint Session of Congress, and no Vice President in American history has ever asserted such authority,” Pence wrote.

Following the completely peaceful rally of close to a million attendees, Trump supporters marched down towards the U.S. Capitol…and then complete chaos ensued.
Around 2 PM, reports broke out that hundreds of people had stormed the Capitol where they vandalized and looted the building.
When some attempted to attack the Joint Session, one woman was fatally shot in the neck by police. Three more reportedly died following the violence, although it is unconfirmed whether they were affiliated with the Capitol scene.
After a citywide 6 PM curfew was ordered and the National Guard pushed protestors out, crowds appeared to have completely dispersed by around 8 PM.
No additional rioting is reported to have occurred overnight. Even the streets of BLM Plaza were completely silent.
However, the mainstream media is having a field day painting the situation as if Trump supporters spent the entire day terrorizing the city at large. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Trump supporters spent most of the day peacefully rallying with the president near the White House, not scaling the walls of the Capitol and setting the city on fire.
Furthermore, while I am in no way justifying the violence that occurred yesterday, it’s ironic that the Left has the nerve to suddenly condemn rioting and call for peace. Leftist extremist groups BLM and ANTIFA spent half of 2020 rioting across America, including in DC, and the Left said nothing.
The hypocrisy of the Left is unmatched.
But regardless of the facts, the MSM and the Left will continue to perpetuate the narrative they’ve created. Under a Joe Biden presidency, it’s only going to get worse.
