We’ve reached a point over the last week and a half or so that you’d really begin to think that things couldn’t possibly get much worse for Donald Trump. The state of the former guy’s life is about as rock bottom as rock bottom gets. But we’ve learned the hard way over the years (and sometimes the hilarious way) that it can always, always get worse.
And it got worse.
Following the bombshell raid on the ex-president’s Palm Beach compound, his supporters were quick to swing into action, most of them just effectively making complete and utter asses out of themselves, while others have gotten downright violent — ranging from the scene outside of Mar-a-Lago in the immediate aftermath of the raid, to the MAGA-loving man who attacked the Ohio FBI headquarters in Cincinnati, presumably as a result of the FBI raid against the ex-president.
But as it turns out, the support for the former guy isn’t as resounding as I’m sure he hopes.
New reporting out from the Daily Beast this weekend is shaping up to be pretty humiliating for the scandal-ridden ex-president after a pro-Trump rally that was slated for out in front of the FBI’s Washington, D.C. headquarters on Sunday turned out to be a massive, embarrassing flop — literally, not a single soul showed up.

The Beast reports:
A pro-Trump protest in front of the FBI’s Washington, D.C. headquarters flopped on Sunday with no one showing up at the event. After days of promotion within right-wing media, the far-right Falun Gong-backed Epoch Times reported Thursday that the event had been canceled, citing fears it might be co-opted. Chatter in pro-Trump forums had also speculated the event might be a ‘trap.’ By Sunday afternoon, not a single protester had gathered, leaving a larger than usual group of FBI police officers to speak among themselves. Nevertheless, threats continue to be directed at the federal agency. On Friday night, ex-Trump aide Garrett Ziegler attempted to sic MAGA fans on the families of the FBI agents he believed to have searched Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home. ‘We have to have faces,’ he said. ‘There are people ruining America, and they have names, and emails, and addresses.'”

Social media was living for the humiliation:
Is it finally sinking in that they believed lies?
