WASHINGTON D.C. (FOX NEWS)– Trump supporters arriving for the “Deploraball” inauguration celebration in Washington Thursday night were greeted by screaming profanities and threats as they entered the National Press Club Building.
Some of the hundreds of protesters sprayed Mace, while others were peaceful as law enforcement officers lined the streets to monitor the chaotic scene. At least one passer-by reported bottles were being thrown as he showed off a gash in his head.
The “Deploraball” was organized by a pro- Trump organization, MAGA3X, and invited over 1,000 guests to celebrate on the eve of the President-Elect’s swearing in.
The main goal of the evening, according to organizers, was to celebrate.
“Deploraball is a coming out party for a new type of Republican,” Jeff Giesea told Foxnews.com. “People are threatening us, and it’s uncalled for.”
