South Carolina’s Lake Murray played host to a massive flotilla of maritime vessels piloted by extremely enthusiastic Trump supporters this past 4th of July weekend. The “Trumptilla,” as these events have become affectionately known, have become a common occurrence in coastal states. Florida, for example, has seen several Trumptillas over the last few months.
South Carolina’s 4th of July Trumptilla, however, may be the largest of these events yet. The Trumptilla’s organizers had set up a Facebook page for the event where over 2,700 people said they would attend the event. More than 5,000 people expressed interest.
The actual count, however, is much more than that. The Trumptilla’s organizers reported that over 3,400 boats and 30,000 people attended the massive event last Saturday.

Newsweek reported that, given those numbers, South Carolina’s Trumptilla easily shattered the Guinness world record for the largest boat parade on record.
According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the current largest boat parade saw 1,080 vessels, which was set in Terengganu, Malaysia, on 13 September 2014. This means Sunday’s event will be more than three times larger than the current record if confirmed.
You just know some poor fake news intern was crying into their Starbucks soy latte as they were typing that.
We’ve been told time and again that President Trump is trailing Joe “Joementia” Biden in all the polls that matter. Pundits on both sides of the aisle assure us that President Trump is in trouble, and stands to lose bigly unless he changes whatever item bothers the fake news media on that particular date.
Yet here we have an event not even organized by the Trump campaign that boasts at least as many people as you’d have found at any 2016 Trump rally. Tens of thousands of people from across the country flocked to Lake Murray to show their support for President Trump without him even asking. This is despite the Chinese Coronavirus and Black Lives Matter riots. Clearly all of the voter enthusiasm is on our side.
Events like this are exactly why I haven’t lost hope…and why you shouldn’t either.
