WASHINGTON – 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 “People are threatening us, and it’s uncalled for.”
The event had earlier been reported to be the target of threats from anti-Trump groups, but the FBI and D.C. law enforcement told that they did not know of any credible threats surrounding any inauguration events.

“Just look at which way their guns are facing!” one protester told about the police presence “US! Not them.”
“We’re not attacking anyone!,” another protester said.
But, that was not the case for James Allsup, 21, from Seattle, Wash., whose head was gushing blood, as he sat surrounded by police officers on the side of the road.

“I was wearing my ‘Make America Great Again’ hat, and a white male came up behind me and swung at me with a flagpole – I kind of blacked out for a minute,” Allsup told “Before I knew it my head was gushing blood—there’s blood on my Trump hat.”
