He continued, “The courts aren’t going to decide who the next president of the United States is going to be. We the people decide.”
Flynn’s sister also attended and gave a hilarious rendition of “God Bless America” by forgetting the song’s basic lyrics.

Even minor MAGA celebrity Mike Lindell, AKA the My Pillow guy, tried to inject hope into the crowd. “Last night, about two in the morning, I got a text from [Trump lawyer] Sidney Powell’s team, and the Texas lawsuit [rejected by the Supreme Court] had nothing to do with what she’s been working hard on,” he said. “And she filed her lawsuits with the Supreme Court for Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan and Arizona… I have seen it, the fraud is 100 percent, and Donald Trump will be our president for four more years!”
But Jones delivered a less hopeful message. “The system is publicly stealing this election from the biggest landslide and the biggest political realignment since 1776,” Jones screamed to cheers from the crowd.

Also in attendance were members of the hate group Proud Boys, which the Southern Poverty Law Center describes as “anti-Muslim and misogynistic.” And Enrique Tarrio, the group’s leader, even posted on Parler a photo of the White House, claiming that he was invited there. The White House, however, claims that Tarrio only attended a public tour. As White House spokesman Judd Deere told The Daily Beast, “He was on a public WH Christmas tour. He did not have a meeting with the President nor did the WH invite him.”
