Saturday’s Trump rally in Anchorage was as enthusiastic as the exactly one week ago, although it didn’t bring in conservative luminaries like Sarah Palin, and there was no DJ spinning the favorites this week.
Nevertheless, music was blaring from a car with a big sound system and all the doors wide open.
Between 75-100 people gathered at Cabela’s Parking lot in South Anchorage, with the rain stopping just before the event started at 1:30 pm. It was a good day for a Trump rally — and a windbreaker.
It was also a good day for prayer, just 30 days before the Nov. 3 election.
The group that gathered bowed their heads and prayed for the health of the President and the First Lady Melania Trump, who have contracted COVID-19.
Mayoral candidate Dave Bronson and rally-caravan organizer Joanna Potter also spoke to a crowd that gathered with trucks, cars, motorcycles, and Trump and American flags.
People have gotten a real civics lesson the past few years about what the media can do to a duly elected president, Bronson said.
“Just because you don’t take an interest in politics, doesn’t mean politics isn’t going to take an interest in you. And boy, it’s really taken an interest in our pocketbooks and our small businesses, and boy our media and the Deep State is sure attacking our president,” Bronson said during his brief remarks.
Then they started their engines and for the second week in a row, drove in a mile-long caravan to Wasilla, where they held a rally at the VFW Hall.
