Several hundred protesters on Monday waved signs and gave fiery speeches at the gates to Freedom Hall ahead of President Donald Trump's visit to tout his plan to replace Obamacare.

But by late afternoon, their numbers were dwarfed by the long lines of thousands of Trump supporters wearing red “Make America Great Again” hats that snaked around the fairgrounds hours before Trump appeared. Many scorned the demonstrators, calling them “snowflakes.”

“They need to get over it,” said rallygoer Bonnie Rhome. “Accept that he is the president.”

The ad was directed at a group Obama was acutely aware he had to win over — white, working class men. A quarter of those same men deserted Democrats in 2016, a…
