Villagers for Trump show support for president as impeachment hearings kick off

Horns were honking and area residents were waving this week as members of Villagers for Trump – armed with American flags and signs – staged a rally in Florida’s Friendliest Hometown.

Signs showing support for President Trump and American flags blanketed the intersection of Morse Boulevard and County Road 466 on Monday.

As members have done in the past, they blanketed the corners of the busy Villages intersection and displayed a variety of signs backing the Trump administration – while also sending clear messages to their Democratic counterparts. Signs reading everything from “This is MAGA country” to “We Love You, Prez Trump” to “Support the NRA” to “Close the Borders” to “Choose Freedom Not Socialism” were on display. And American flags of all sizes were aplenty.

Villagers for Trump is known for staging golf cart rallies and these flag- and sign-waving rallies at various locations across the community. In August, rain couldn’t stop about 90 members of the group from participating in an event at the intersection of U.S. Hwy. 27/441 and Avenida Central.

In July, they held a similar rally at the busy intersection of State Road 44 and U.S. 301 – an event that brought long blasts from air horns as hundreds of truckers rolled by. And on June 14, they were at the intersection of Morse Boulevard and CR 466 celebrating Flag Day and Trump’s birthday, while also showing support for the president’s rally in Orlando four days later to announce his re-election campaign.

Villagers for Trump members received plenty of reactions from passing motorists during Monday’s rally at the intersection of Morse Boulevard and County Road 466.

Last week, a large contingent of Villagers for Trump members were in the same area by the nearby Sumter County Government Annex building as they staged a rally against a golf cart caravan of Democrats who were heading to Congressman Daniel Webster’s office to protest his vote against the impeachment hearings.

The Democrats gathered at Barnes & Noble in Lake Sumter Landing and made the trek across the bridge at Lake Sumter, where they were met by Villagers for Trump members showing their support for Webster and the president. It was an event that at times got heated, with at least one Democrat expressing fear, another flying her middle finger as she drove by GOP supporters and loud cries of “Communists,” “Stalin’s men” and “This is democracy at its meant to be” ringing out.
