Trumpers Staged a Protest of Fox News. Eight People Showed Up. One Was a Child.

Since election night as the network was the first to name the State of Arizona for Joe Biden, Donald Trump fans are angry about Fox News.
However as the hardcore MAGA gathered outside Fox's Washington, D.C. office on Wednesday, they could attract just eight people, including a boy.
Officially the case was classified as "Stop Steal."
But one would be apologized if they could scarcely realize it among the other rainstormed citizens right by the Capitol buildings.
Simply stated, the seriousness of the proclaimed aim of the demonstration (literally, a reversal of the outcome of a presidential election) and the real citizens there to struggle for this became drastic imbalances.
The group Ed Martin dismissed the argument that crowdsizing is necessary because of the issue why the demonstration against Fox' alleged anti-Trump prejudice attracted very few people—even after saying that "hundreds of miles of people" were behind their efforts.
Martin said, accompanied by a masked protestant in a pro-Trump shirt who vowed to "scream liberals again" "We care about measuring the votes and not measuring what you tell me."

The Anti-Fox Rally was a disgraceful start off for a weekend, where both establishment Trump backers and radical right-wing activists vowed to crowd Washington, DC, in a latest bid to avoid the simple reelection loss of Trump.
Trump backers are scheduled to come together outside the white house and the Supreme Court for a protest in a variety of gatherings with titles such as the "Million MAGA March," "Stop Steal" and "March for Trump."
In a presidential discussion, the far-right Proud Boys, the Trump Party, said "stand up and stand by will appear at the Million MAGA March.
A caravane headed by the host Owen Shroyers in InfoWars is snatching across the South and scheduled on Friday to arrive in Washington. The Oath Keepers militia organization has stated that its representatives would close by to detain some "antifas."
Other extremist organizations have revealed preparations for Washington to surface.
Right-wing figure Nick Fuentes has encouraged his racial fans to fly to Washington, who named themselves "groypers." He has marched in Charlottesville in the 2017 White Nationalist protest "Unite the Right."
The sources shared by the Social Networking software Telegram. "GROYPERS ARE TO STOP THIS COUP."
The attendance outside Fox's studio would most definitely be even more robust than the company on Wednesday.
This may be partially because more major Republican leaders promoted demonstrations over the weekend.
The promo photo "March for Trump" was tweeting at Tuesday's Fox host Sean Hannity in a park outside the white house, which is scheduled to commence at noon.
But even then the rally would inevitably disappoint any internal paranoia.
Enrique Tarrio, head of proud Boys, told The Daily Beast that the name of "Million MAGA March" might overemphasize the amount of citizens in Washington.
"To call it 'million MAGA March' I think it is poor marketing as well," Tarrio said.
"We might have up to 100,000 participants, let's say.
It will always be short.
We're not going to get 100,000, I don't believe."
The numerous rallies represent, in some measure, various signals behind the protests at the weekend: outrage at Democrats, anger at Fox News for calling Biden polls and local and state election officers refuting references of electoral fraud.
A protestor made a new argument on Martin's rally, carrying a sign reading "Fox = UN."
"The institutions that told us the truth were not tellers of the truth," said Martin.
Fox anchor Neil Cavuto has come to the rally for special criticism, and a female close Martin has declared a "Stop the Neal" — an obvious, but misguided, comparison of Cavuto's cutting off the false allegations of electoral fraud from White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany.
Martin said of the moment that Cavuto had interrupted the coverage by Fox of the McEnany press conference "I thought it was disrespectful to the Americans.'
Fox's frustration can contribute to unprecedented struggles within the ranks, since the conservative network frequently encourages such rallies, rather than their disdain.
However, analysts still fear that the events of Saturday give the far right an opening for more Republican citizens to deliver their tweets.
"I just hope that those who are not extremists can identify with the extremists among them," said Oren Segal, Vice-President of the Centre on Bigotry, the Anti-Defamation League.
