Last Thursday, January 19. at approximately 6 pm cst. seventeen hours before Donald Trump’s Inauguration, Wisconsin’s David Fuller is hanging at home with his cousin Matt. Out of nowhere, Matt says “Hey. Let’s go to D.C. to see Trump sworn in. ROAD TRIP!”
Just like that, David and Matt set off from outside Milwaukee (David as @RNRWisconsin helped turn WI from Blue to Red) to see the transition of power from Blue Dem Obama to America’s President — the man who turned all those counties conservative Red, baby, RED — Donald Trump!
Other than their highway route and an address of a DC Metro train station, these fellas had no plans. Basically, eight hundred (800) miles in the car overnight, park, short train ride, then the one mile walk. Sounds like the Blues Brothers, but they’re conservative red-blooded patriots, all the way. Their mission? Be present for Donald Trump’s Inauguration to witness the rebirth of America.
By midnight our guys were making good time. Six hours plus drive time and these RNR boys had passed Toledo, Ohio. Wisconsin warriors braving the Ohio Turnpike in the formerly blue and now red again Buckeye state.
Oh-Hi-O! A great midwestern state, truly unique in America, Ohio played the pendulum President Trump needed to turn America’s tide from liberal, destructive Blue to positive, conservative Red. He did it. Thus, David and Matt wanted to say, “#ThankYouTrump!”
At 8 am est Friday, January 20th, 2017, David and Matt arrived at the parking garage in the DC area. They readied themselves to reclaim America from the grassroots. On the street in our capitol. Together with hundreds of thousands of other good, decent Americans who caught the Metro D.C. line that morning (that really WAS the #TrumpTrain) they’d cross town and walk a mile to the National Mall.
Were David and Matt photographed from above by the NY Times while they were there? Who cares? The two guys were part of an undeniably large crowd. How large? Well, the total audience set records! The Inauguration of Donald Trump was the largest audience to witness a Presidential Inauguration ever. (Sean Spicer told the truth!) David, a Navy veteran, and his cousin Matt care. That’s why they went.
That day the men canvassed their surroundings for about an hour and a half before making their way past — and giving fist bumps to — the heavy security of military blockades and personnel guarding the area.
With all the helicopters flying above, David felt like he was back in Iraq, fighting a different dictatorial Hussein… Blue Dem Barry. But it was twenty six years after his service in Iraq, and while David will never stop fighting the never ending battle to bring bad regimes to swift end, it was surreal for David to be answering the call — again — to help see good capture bad here in America. David was in Washington, DC for the reclamation of our country.
With his loyal and patriotic cousin Matt, both troops stood ready. They were fully prepared to participate in any further actions needed in defense of Country, Constitution, and Family. To fulfill the oath which NEVER ends.
It got closer to noon, when Trump would be officially sworn in as America’s 45th President. The most powerful man in the world. Meanwhile, on the ground, the Milwaukee Boys ran into quite a group of different types of people also in DC. Of course there was Trump supporters. There was also a dark cult wearing black robes marching to the beat of a single bongo drum led by a head wizard. Plus, women’s rights protesters, BLM, and most every other freak show group you might imagine. All together assembled with David and Matt and other American Patriots. What a battle we are fighting… what a trip!
Presented with the opportunity to engage in person with such characters, David and Matt merged in to watch the event unfold. What a setting to be a part of American history. There on the National Mall, gritting their teeth as the leftist morons jeered a hallmark of our political process, the peaceful transition of power, David and Matt cheered and clapped!
They laughed off the “mean” mugs from the disruptors surrounding them. They cheered even louder. David and Matt stood their ground. Soon, others in the crowd felt inspired to get loud in support of Trump too. It felt nice knowing you were not alone. Because David and Matt refused to back down, because they got louder and louder with their positive messages, others broke their silence and applauded our new President.
Win for the boyos! Win for the Trump supporters in that section and watching at home or work. We are not alone. We have a President. The winning spreads and it’s time us regular folk start piling up victories again.
Matt wore an American flag scarf type thing around his neck with pride that day and night. To the both of them, a new mission emerged. Protect that flag wrapped around Matt’s neck in other sections of the city.
After the Inauguration David and Matt walked around for a bit. Soon they found a nice strip of bars in the U Street Corridor. For them it was the perfect spot to imbibe and battle the haters. They’d educate, defend that American flag, and stand ground as proud Trump supporters in our nation’s capitol over some drinks in an area they felt was swarming with Big Govt Blue Dem liberals. For David, at times it felt like he was back overseas in enemy territory. He was part of a team of two soldiers on a mission where they had to have each other’s six at all times.
It was fun for a guy with life experiences including military combat service and some Patrick Swayze type Road House stuff. A freaking blast. He and Matt found themselves in the highest of spirits. The two dudes tried to hit every bar on U Street, and seen as conservatives they were surely charged a premium for those liquid spirits!
David and Matt rose. They made the most of it. Yes, they often felt shipwrecked on an island of liberal, progressive natives. But they adapted and turned it into an adventure to take in and celebrate the great occasion. While we may not yet be in a safe harbor, it sure feels like we are no longer a nation in distress.
On Twitter, David volunteers his time and manages plus his personal handle @dwfictus. Cousin Matt goes to work everyday to take care of his kids. On Twitter he is @mattv04.
Keep rising like David and Matt!
