Report: Biden’s team worried his inauguration will descend into a ‘MAGA rally’
Joe Biden, Trump suppporters

Reports have surfaced that officials involved in the planning of Joe Biden’s inauguration are concerned his supporters won’t show and they’ll be “left with a mass gathering” of “chumps” and “ugly people.” Those are the names the man who claims to be all Americans’ president conferred on Trump supporters who heckled him at campaign stops.

Daily Beast politics editor Sam Stein published a column in which he discusses the tiptoeing necessary to conduct an inauguration in the age of COVID.

Stein notes that Biden’s previous campaign events were made sparse by design, something that could cause logistical nightmares on January 20th.

The report cites one “official” who is concerned that a “MAGA rally” could break out, which very well could happen: A recent poll found that only 56% of Biden voters say they were voting for him rather than against Donald Trump.

“What do you do if our people don’t show up and his do?” the official, who is involved in inaugural preparations, asked. “They probably will and the last thing you want is a MAGA rally on the Mall when Joe Biden is sworn in as president,” they continued. “I think [Trump] would want to make it as much of a sh*tshow as possible.”

A MAGA Rally at Biden’s Inauguration?

Inaugural planning will go on despite the president’s campaign refusing to concede the election as they pursue litigation in states in which some ballots are in dispute.

Just today, the Trump campaign filed a federal lawsuit in Michigan citing “multiple witness accounts of irregularities, incompetence, and unlawful vote counting.”

The passion for the president’s fight is reflected in his supporters.

Biden’s people know it, and they’re concerned the MAGA crowd is going to show up on Inauguration Day in full force. This has led to speculation that Biden could go into hidin’.

One Democratic fundraiser told the Daily Beast that they could foresee “a mostly virtual event,” while Democratic operative Stephanie Cutter has suggested Biden wouldn’t even need to go to the Capitol. “It is all ceremonial,” she said. “You can do it in the [Capitol] rotunda if you want. You just have to be sworn in by a Supreme Court justice.”

This Could Prove to Be an Embarrassment

If the only requirement is a Supreme Court Justice to swear him in, why not just send John Roberts to Biden’s basement?

We can guarantee there are no MAGA fans there and it’s certainly a safe environment that the presumed president-elect is used to.

Funny how, after an election that was solely about President Trump, that the inauguration would be more of the same.
