'Bikers for Trump' hold rally outside of Tea Party Convention
MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A small army of bikers lined the entrance of the South Carolina Tea Party Convention in Myrtle Beach Saturday, chanting for Trump as he drove by.
"He says what all my bar patrons say sitting around having a beer or something. He's talking the same lingo. Hard to believe a multi-billionaire could think like a biker," said Bill Barber, who runs a popular biker bar in Murrells Inlet. He says he supports "Bikers for Trump" and everything that the GOP candidate stands for. That's why a rally was held Saturday morning with hundreds of bikers pouring into the favorite hotspot. The rally was organized by Kool-Aid Customs and other bikers in the area who want to show their support for "The Donald."
"The biker community throughout every place that I've been has been amazing. It feels like it's one huge family," said biker "Blind Bob."
Bob is a member of Bikers for Trump, and is also blind. However, friends say he can still operate a motorcycle, and rode with the other bikers as they went to see Trump.
"I'm not quite sure what to tell him or what to say. I'll kind of be speechless," Bob said.
The bikers revved their engines and rolled out as a unit to meet Trump, with signs, T-shirts, and plenty of American flags. Member Stephen Sekelsky says he wants "Bikers for Trump" to be known in the Myrtle Beach community, and more importantly, what they stand for.
"It's time to get away from the government, and run this thing like a corporation. Like a billionaire runs a business. Like he does," Sekelsky said.
The bikers say they will continue to support Trump on his quest to become the next president. They say they come from all walks of life and share two things in common: Love for bikes and The Donald.
