If you haven't been to a grassroots Trump rally you are missing out on a good time. The folks supporting the President of the United States are enjoying life.

I don't normally go to rallies or protests, regardless of the cause. However, in the interest of gathering news and offering the best information to my radio audience, I have been observing local Trump rallies.

The rallies to support President Trump in Massachusetts also have a "Back the Blue" theme. The slogan "Back the Blue" and the American flags with a blue stripe are supporting the men and women who serve and protect our communities as police officers.

What you see at a local Trump rally are people having fun. They are waving American flags and smiling. They are holding up signs with slogans like "Veterans for Trump" and "Moms for President Trump" and they are waving at the cars going by them. They are enjoying the opportunity to celebrate the man they elected to office to stand up for their country.

There are also mobile Trump rallies. People get together in a location and then caravan around their community in cars and trucks adorned with Trump signs and flags. There are also Trump motorcycle parades cruising the roads of America.

Nobody is rioting or destroying property at these rallies. There are people who hate police officers and the current president who try to disrupt these rallies but they are generally unsuccessful.

You may not like President Trump, but you have to appreciate his supporters.
