MANHATTAN MAGA: Trumper with knife arrested near NY grand jury courthouse

A woman carrying an “I stand with Trump, do you?” sign was arrested near the Manhattan courthouse where Trump’s grand jury convenes on Tuesday.

After an altercation with a pedestrian, the woman reportedly pulled out a knife before cops arrived.

Watch the clip below. 

The grand jury meets on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, but has yet to make a decision on the case – despite Trump falsely telling his followers that he was going to be arrested.

If an indictment were to be handed down, it wouldn’t have been today.

Donald Trump has been whipping his base into a frenzy after his former attorney, Michael Cohen, testified before the grand jury a final time as they decide if Trump committed a crime in the $130,000 hush-money investigation.

As talk of a possible indictment dominated social media, the former President did what he does best and lied.

Playing the victim, and insisting he did nothing wrong, Trump seized on the opportunity to fundraise and incite violence with repeated social media calls for MAGA to “protest.”

Relentless racially charged social media attacks on Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg resulted in the prosecutor receiving a reportedly credible death threat.

A bomb threat was called into the courthouse where New York Attorney General Letitia James was to begin her $250 million civil lawsuit against the Trump Organization.

Though no one was hurt, the action of Trump’s supporters is continued proof that MAGA fanatics continue to be loyal to the ex-President and should be taken seriously regardless of how crazy they may seem.

Temperatures continue to rise on the ultra-MAGA right with Donald Trump fanning the flames of fear and hate.

The protester may have dropped the knife when police arrived, but that in no way overshadows the fact that she pulled it out at all — and was seemingly prepared to use it.
