Maggie Haberman, Sabrina Tavernise, Zolan Kanno-Youngs and Zach Montague, reporting for The New York Times:

President Trump in his motorcade drove by hundreds of his supporters who showed up in Washington on Saturday for demonstrations protesting the outcome of the 2020 election. Mr. Trump has refused to concede the election even as his loss in the Electoral College grew this week.

The president drove by in the motorcade on his way to his private golf club in Sterling, Va., and was greeted by applause and cheers. Supporters nearby carried signs reading “Best prez ever” and “Stop the steal.”

Crowds fanned out for several blocks around Freedom Plaza as thousands of supporters filled in, though the crowd was not overwhelming by most measures.

On Twitter, the White House press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, offered an exaggerated assessment of the event, called the “Million MAGA March,” claiming that a million supporters had turned out.

Accounts on the ground suggested that estimate was wildly inflated.

This comment, tho:

They’re trying to get a count of how many people are at the MAGA March in Washington but every time they reach 270, someone screams for a recount and they have to start over.

Basically.. a LOSERPALOOZA 2020.
