Trump Inauguration Looking At Almost 1 Million Attendees

It’s funny how the Left thinks protesting the Inauguration will make a difference. The celebrities attending protests on the Mall may not yet realize it, but the Trump supporters they are insulting are the very people who purchase the majority of their products. The far Left aren’t the ones going out buying CDs, paying for movie tickets, and buying all the other crap that comes to Hollywood audiences. They’re the ones who expect everything for free while living in their parents’ basement.

Middle class America makes up the majority of their Hollywood meal tickets, and the stars are poking the bear with their constant pandering to the socialist left. Trump supporters aren’t your typical American fan who forgets when a Hollywood celeb insults them. They will remember the next time a new song or CD comes out, the next time a movie stars one of these dimwits on parade. And they will voice their opinions by not showing up, by never supporting said dimwits again. Either way, Trump will be inaugurated on January 20.

Officials expect almost 1 million people to attend Donald Trump’s Jan. 20 inauguration — and they also worry about the potential arrival of hundreds of thousands of protestors who are expected to attend a protest march the next day.

“Obama drew an estimated 1.8 million people to the National Mall eight years ago, according to federal and local agencies. Planners say they are expecting no more than 900,000 people to attend Trump’s ceremonies Jan. 20,” NBC reported.

The military is using a 60 feet x 40 feet map to map out January 20 inauguration activities.

“Obama drew an estimated 1.8 million people to the National Mall eight years ago, according to federal and local agencies. Planners say they are expecting no more than 900,000 people to attend Trump’s ceremonies Jan. 20,” NBC reported.

Meanwhile, varying crowd estimates were provided by different sources. According to NBC, the D.C. Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management is reportedly planning for 800,000 to 900,000 attendees attend at the swearing-in ceremony and inaugural parade, while the U.S. Armed Forces Joint Task Force-National Capital Region (JTF-NCR), is expecting 800,000 people and the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Activities (JCCIC) has suggested 750,000 people would be present.

Some have suggested the inauguration could see up to 750,000 demonstrators, partly because many people are expected to attend a formal protest march the next day.

Hundreds of people involved with the planning process reportedly gathered Wednesday for a day-long rehearsal and authorities will also be on alert for the “Women’s March” on Washington the next day. Nearly 200 progressive groups have signed up for the protest.

Katy Perry, Cher, Scarlett Johansson, America Ferrera, Zendaya, Amy Schumer and Chelsea Handler will also participate in the protests.

Obama’s 2013 inauguration reportedly saw approximately 1 million people. Bill Clinton’s 1993 inauguration saw 800,000 guests and George W. Bush’s 2005 inauguration had 400,000 attendees.

Security costs for the event have already crossed $100 million, according to the International Business Times. There will reportedly be over 3,200 police officers, 8,000 members of the National Guard and nearly 5,000 active-duty military members monitoring the day’s proceedings in the nation’s Capitol. The Capitol Police, FBI, Secret Service, National Park Service and National Guard, will reportedly be covering the events.

“Dealing with protests and demonstrations is something we deal with all of the time,” said Chris Geldart, director of D.C.’s Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency, according to the IB Times. “We will see more protesters here than we have seen in past inaugurations. But we will be ready.”
