Juneau: Through rain and snow, they poured out the love for President Trump

Hundreds of cars and trucks took part in the quickly organized Trump parade in Juneau on Sunday. And the weather could not have been worse.

It was blowing wet snow and rain when the group started gathering at the bronze whale statue near the Department of Labor downtown.

After a few photos, they got going in their vehicles, warming back up and winding through downtown, along Calhoun Avenue by the Governor’s House, and finally out to Egan Drive to drive to Auke Bay.

The length of the procession, according to citizen journalists reporting for Must Read Alaska, went from the Pioneers Home to the hospital along Egan Drive. The observers said there were over 200 people participating.

The event was organized by a young man from Juneau who is not typically involved in party politics.

“These are all young people. People who have never been involved in politics. Young men and women. I’ve never seen anything like it in the 40-plus years I’ve lived in Juneau,” said our reporter.

Cars and trucks line up in Juneau on Sunday for the Trump road rally to Auke Bay.

“I talked to one of the young men earlier today. It’s not about Republican or Democrat to him. It’s about our country and support of our president who has made us a great country again.”

Across the state, communities had parades this weekend, many of them organized by people who, like in Juneau, are unknown to the political establishment.

“These young people are excited,” our correspondent reported. “People are waving at us from their houses, from their doorways.”

  • Yeah it’s happening down here and all over. Every stop 30,000 plus people are there waiting to cheer on the president and break into a chant we love you. How many times have you ever heard a crowd that large chant we love you to a sitting president of the United States? Fake news and the fake poles are doing their best to suppress the vote by saying that Trump is down in numbers because they hope people will stay home and not vote if their vote isn’t going to mean anything. I can tell you this strategy has backfired and has angered the moral majority and has brought even more of them out to vote securing a landslide victory for the president. 304, that’s my best educated guess on the electoral college numbers for Trump when all the court battles have been fought. Down here at the polling place, they have a sign that says no campaigning within 100 ft of this sign and a fool Hillary lover put a Biden Harris sign 2 in away from that in an attempt to manipulate Trump voters. He sits there in his lawn chair all day everyday. Such a lame attempt at votor suppression and manipulation. But we allow it to happen because of those two inches. Let him cross the line by a half an inch and see what these rednecks down here do to him.

  • Not too shabby for a Trump rally to go down in a town run by Democrats!
