Not only is the government (partially) shut down, but now a caravan of truck drivers is looking to shut down traffic around Washington — as part of a bizarre protest against things that are “destroying America.”
They also may or may not be trying to arrest members of Congress.
The group, Truckers Ride for the Constitution, is trying to attract participants for a demonstration on the Capital Beltway starting this Friday.
“Truck drivers will not haul freight! … Truckers will lead the path to saving our country if every American rides with them!” the group’s Facebook page, which had more than 57,000 “likes” as of Tuesday morning, declares.
The truckers reportedly plan to clog the Beltway by driving “three lanes deep” for three days.
