One of president-elect Donald Trump’s biggest supporters is taking it upon himself to make sure the inauguration event goes smoothly, promising to form a “wall of meat” to guard against any protesters.
“In the event that we are needed, we certainly will form a wall of meat,” Cox told the show.
“What does that mean?” interrupted co-host Abby Huntsman. “What does that mean, ‘A wall of meat’?”
“We’ll be shoulder-to-shoulder with our brothers and we’ll be toe-to-toe with anyone that is going to break through any police barriers, that’s going to be assaulting women, spitting on them, throwing things at them,” Cox explained. “We are anticipating a peaceful transition of power.”
The group obtained a permit and will hold what is likely to be the largest pro-Trump rally put on by a private organization during the same time as the inauguration, the Washington Post reported. The rally will have speakers and musical performances, as well as a ceremony to honor veterans.
As of noon Friday, the nation will have a new leader: Donald J. Trump will become the nation’s 45th president. He will take the oath of office, along with Vice President-elect Mike Pence on Inauguration Day.
