On Saturday night in the small, South Texas city of Robstown, supporters of former President Donald Trump turned out in force for a “Save America” rally.
During the rally, which drew thousands according to images posted to social media, the former president hammered Democrats over the House Jan. 6 committee. He dialed in on Republican Reps. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger — the only two GOP lawmakers on the committee.
As he leveled sharp attacks against the two Republicans, Trump suddenly stopped speaking because the enthusiastic audience had spontaneously broken into song, singing the national anthem while the former president flashed several warm smiles and nods of approval.
Trump: “Corrupt press, they says Liz Cheney has a great future in politics. She lost by 40 points.”
Then: “Kinzinger cries every time he talks.”
Then: Crowd sings National Anthem.

“She lost by 40 points,” Trump said of Cheney’s results in the Wyoming primary election earlier this year. “The single biggest margin a congressman or woman has ever lost by in history.”
The former president trained his sights on the press, mocking members of the media for praising Cheney and predicting she would still have a successful political career. “I don’t think so,” Trump said.
“All she has is Jan. 6, she’s like obsessed,” Trump said before taking a shot at Kinzinger, who Trump said “cries, every time he talks he cries,” drawing laughter from the crowd.
