Standing among the crowd wearing Make America Great Again caps and T-shirts while some of them screamed “Shove gun control up your a**” and “Trump Rambo”, I was nervous.
Typically I’d cover Donald Trump’s rallies from either behind the penned barricades or from the safety of a live feed off a TV news channel.
But this time it was different.
For, after braving five hours waiting to board the Trump Train at the President’s latest 2020 re-election rally, I joined thousands of his supporters in Cincinnati’s 33C heat to become just another face in the crowd.
Like the President, I was more interested in how his base responded, and to what, opting this time to just listen to what they were saying to each other, and to Trump, instead of fact-checking his every word.

Donald Trump and his line-up of deplorable warm-up speakers used their platform at Trump’s El Paso MAGA rally to bash teachers, the media, and anyone else who doesn’t agree with them. They worked the crowd into a frenzy, and one MAGA fan just couldn’t help himself, yelling, “Fuck the media!” and jumping onto a media riser to attack a BBC cameraman.
Update: For now, no charges will be filed. From The Daily Beast:
“We are looking into the situation and the released video of the incident but we are not pressing charges at this time,” District Attorney Jaime Esparza told The Daily Beast on Tuesday. “If there are any changes to our course of action, we will inform the public.”
