Trucker Tells Megyn Kelly D.C. Trucker Protest is America’s ‘Egypt Moment’

On Thursday night, Megyn Kelly spoke to two people outraged over the government shutdown: a trucker organizing a protest, and a man who actually spent his time mowing the grass outside the Lincoln Memorial.

Ernest Lee is one of the many truckers backing the Ride for the Constitution protest to “get the attention of our unrepresenting representatives” by “causing the world’s biggest traffic jam” in DC. Lee said, “This is an Egypt moment for the entire country to say ‘We have had enough.'”

Meanwhile, Chris Cox told Kelly about why he decided to take his lawnmower to the National Mall and start mowing the grass. He said he was “embarrassed” at how messy the district looked, and so he took action instead of complaining about it. He encouraged others to do their part and help the National Park Service as the shutdown continues.

As for the shutdown itself, Cox quipped, “We should take away all the limousines and we should pick ’em up in a bunch of short yellow buses.” Lee encouraged more people to “join the fight” to take a stand against big government.
