VIDEO: Clay Clark Tells Freedom Plaza Crowd to Hug
Pro-Trump speaker Clay Clark at a Washington, D.C. rally on Tuesday afternoon encouraged fellow Trump supporters to hug each other at the event in Freedom Plaza

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



Pro-Trump speaker Clay Clark at a Washington, D.C. rally on Tuesday afternoon encouraged fellow Trump supporters to hug each other at the event in Freedom Plaza.

"So what do we do, I am going to give everyone three action steps," Clark concluded his speech, which was centered on themes including overturning the 2020 election results and a series of other claims such as touting that he has "irrefutable proof that Dr. [Anthony] Fauci is wrong all the time."

Clark's "step one" featured the baseless claim that the coronavirus pandemic is a hoax, which led to the speaker encouraging the pro-Trump rally-goers hugging one another.

"Turn to the person next to you and give them a hug. Someone you don't know, go hug somebody. Spread it out, mass spreader. It's a mass-spreader event! It's a mass-spreader event!" Clark yelled. "It's a mass-spreader event!"

"There you go, hug it out," he added.

I can't open the video but I'm dying to know, did the crowd do as it was told?  Did they really hug each other?  And were they wearing masks or not?

Also, if there is any humor to be had about this latest idiotic nightmare, it's in the comments on the Mediaite article...especially this one::

trump had planned to go to his property in Scotland on the last day
of his presidency to avoid both the inauguration and incarceration.

Scotland declared a total lockdown and banned international travelers until Feb. 1.

You're welcome Sister. I told Buzz that I would convert the YouTube and other videos that he could not open to a MP4 format and post them for him so he can open them. It only takes a few minutes to do and that way he can stay in the loop, and there may be others that can't open those thy of videos. 

There is an article in Help that has instructions on how to convert videos other than YouTubes to the mpg format which will work in NT as well. It's called...

How To Post A Non-YouTube Video In NT

and it works for other types of videos too. But, I use a third party converter on the Internet that works very well.

Can't this guy be penalized/arrested for holding an event like this?  Encouraging people to spread the disease?

We need to send this moron a text and tell him he's a moron along with all the other morons at his superspreader event.

I think he could be be penalized for deliberately endangering the lives of everyone there by encouraging them to make physical contact and not wearing a face mask or protective clothing, nd not practicing social distancing. 

After all, Trump does not care about their lives, and if any catch the COVID-19 from someone they hug it could be considered deliberate exposure to a known lethal disease. Or something of that nature.

But, like everything else that has been done in Trumps name and Trump himself that endangered peoples lives by exposing them to the coronavirus, they won't be charged or disciplined in any way. 

And if any of those who obeyed what they were told to do and they catch the virus and die....oh well, no one told them they had to play along. Right?

'We will not take it any more,' Trump tells supporters as Congress meets to certify Biden win

Jonathan Landay
Wed, January 6, 2021, 11:30 AM EST

(Note strong language in paragraphs 5 and 6)

By Jonathan Landay

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Outgoing U.S. President Donald Trump addressed thousands of supporters, including members of far-right groups, at a rally in Washington protesting Wednesday's meeting of Congress to confirm his election loss to President-elect Joe Biden in November.

Trump, who has spent much of his time since the Nov. 3 election trying to overturn the results, falsely said he won as he spoke on an outdoor stage framing the White House, which Biden is due to move into in two weeks.

Crowds gathered at the "Save America March" wore Trump-approved red baseball caps and cheered as Trump repeated the groundless conspiracy theories that have consumed his final days in office — a period in which coronavirus infections have surged throughout the United States as the pandemic worsens.

"You don't concede when there's theft involved," Trump, a Republican, said after taking the stage following a playlist blasted over loudspeakers of power ballads by Elton John and Phil Collins. "Our country has had enough and we will not take it any more."

For more than an hour, he aired familiar grievances with the news media and Hillary Clinton, his Democratic rival from the 2016 election, and delighted the crowd by calling Democratic victories the product of what he called "explosions of bullshit."

"Bullshit! Bullshit! Bullshit!" the crowd chanted in reply. Most were not wearing the face masks urged by health experts to stem the spread of COVID-19, which has killed more than 350,000 Americans.

Weeks have passed since the states completed certifying that Biden, a Democrat, won the election by 306 Electoral College votes to Trump's 232, and Trump's extraordinary challenges to Biden's victory have floundered in courts across the country.

Congress was due to confirm Biden's victory on Wednesday. Many of Trump's fellow Republicans have promised a stonewalling effort that could stretch proceedings past midnight but was almost certain to fail.

Vice President Mike Pence opened the proceedings in his constitutional role as president of the Senate. He said in a statement that while he shared the concerns about the "integrity" of the election, it was not correct that he should be able to accept or reject electoral votes unilaterally.

In his remarks at the rally, Trump repeatedly made clear his frustration with Pence if he didn't stop Congress from certifying the result.

"Mike Pence, I hope you're going to stand up for the good of our Constitution and the good of our country," Trump said. "And if you're not, I'm going to be very disappointed in you, I will tell you right now."

POLICE AND PROTESTERS SCUFFLE

Members of militia groups and far-right groups, some in body armor, mingled with the crowds.

Washington police earlier banned from the city Enrique Tarrio, the leader of the Trump-supporting far-right group the Proud Boys, after he was arrested on Monday for destruction of property and possession of a firearm magazine.

Other members of the men's group, which espouses white nationalism, gathered at the U.S. Capitol. Tarrio could not immediately be reached for comment.

Crowd control largely fell to the Metropolitan Police Department, which mobilized all 3,750 officers, the Capitol Police, the Park Police, the U.S. Secret Service, and more than 300 members of the city’s National Guard, according to Washington police chief Robert Contee and other officials.

Police have told protesters not to bring their guns to Washington, which has some of the country's strictest gun laws and bans the open carrying of firearms.

On Tuesday evening, Trump supporters trying to reach Black Lives Matter Plaza near the White House were stopped by police in riot gear who used pepper spray and batons to drive them back. Police said a handful of their officers were injured in scuffles and 10 people were arrested from Tuesday into Wednesday morning, a police spokeswoman said.
