In Washington, the last stand of the Trumpists

“Hey, do you have a flag with a Q?” Bob is at his third stand with “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) items. And he still hasn’t found his happiness.

A salesperson answers him with a very curt “No!”. “We want real news, not fake news from the media!” Bob exclaims as he walks, motivated, towards Freedom Plaza.
