Counter protesters in New York City ran Marjorie Taylor Greene out of her own rally intended to show support for former President Donald Trump as he was arraigned in court.
According to The Guardian, Greene, along with the New York Young Republicans, was met with a sea of counter protesters at a Trump-arrest rally in NYC on Tuesday (April 4).
The anti-Trump demonstrators held their own “emergency noise demo” using cowbells and whistles to drown out Greene’s “hate speech” and pro-Trump protesters who chanted “USA.”
After being indicted and arrested on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records, Greene compared President Donald Trump to two legendary Black men.
“President Trump is joining some of the most incredible people who have been arrested in history today,” Taylor Greene said. “Nelson Mandela was arrested and served time in prison. Jesus, Jesus was arrested and murdered by the Roman government. There have been many people throughout history who have been arrested and who have been persecuted by radical, corrupt governments, and it’s beginning today in New York City. I can’t believe it’s happening, but I’ll always support him. He’s done nothing wrong.”
