On March 4th, 2017, my 17-year old  son David and I attended a Trump support rally (See Attending A Trump Support Rally–It Was Fun, There Were Demonstrators And They Had Interesting Signs ).

Well, on March 25th, 2017,  there was another one at the same location, in front of our state capitol.  David and I went again, along with my other son Raphael (14) and my niece Ginger (17), also an avid Trumpster.

It was fun, although with fewer people there.  It was colder.   Just  as before,  seeing the crowd and meeting people was the high point.

We met a pro-Trump Mexican-born lady there, brandishing a   sign that said “Dios Bendiga U.S.A.” (God bless the U.S.A.)  She was talking about how her mother (a U.S. citizen) watches Univision and is now afraid the  government is going to take away her citizenship.  Well, what do you expect after a steady diet of Univision?

There were a few protesters at the previous rally, but at this one there was only one, a high school student bearing a “Love Trumps Hate” sign.  It wasn’t entirely clear  what sort of  love was supposed to trump what sort of hate, and in what way.   But, the protester wasn’t mistreated, wasn’t treated badly, nor did people seem to mind his presence.  One of the speakers  publicly recognized the protester and expressed admiration for his showing up.  Photo- David, Ginger and Raphael Wall at Trump Rally – with Love Trumps Hate Guy

Here’s an article on the rally, with a video.  My sons and niece appear right near the beginning, brandishing Trump signs.  My niece was interviewed at the rally and excerpts of her interview appear three times.   At other times thoughout the short video, my sons and very briefly, yours truly, are visible.

It was fun. And, my son David made a tidy profit selling Trump hats he’d purchased online.  David Wall, Trump Rally March 25
