People’s Convoy Gets Hilarious Trolled By Lone DC Bicyclist

The People’s Convoy tasted its own medicine on Saturday afternoon in Washington, DC, when a lone bicyclist moving at a snail’s pace nearly brought the truck drivers to a halt by taking an entire lane in front of them.

“Hey what are you doing? You’ve got a bunch of trucks behind you,” a convoy livestreamer and YouTuber WYSIWYGTV (pronounced “whizzy-wick”) yelled at the unidentified cyclist as they confronted him. “You’ve got a bunch of trucks behind us.”

The motorcyclist then trolled in response: “What is that? I didn’t hear you… I didn’t hear you, what did you say?”

After the streamer snapped back, “You’ve got a bunch of trucks behind you,” the biker replied, “I’m sorry, I can’t hear you — it’s too loud.” The cyclist rode ahead of the truck drivers at a plodding pace, unmoved by the row of honking large platforms behind him.

The farcical moment came as the right-wing truck convoy entered its third week of repeatedly trying and failing to wreak havoc in the Beltway area.

On Saturday afternoon, The Daily Beast reported that some truck drivers with a vaccine mandate were driving a white Tesla driven by someone who had allegedly been hostile to the convoy. The incident was captured on a live stream by “Sasnak”, a lead participant in the convoy. “A Tesla came in… braked really hard and caused a brake check,” the YouTuber stated, adding that his fellow truckers then brought the car to a stop.

Sasnak then turned on his fellow truckers for their actions towards the Tesla driver. “That is illegal. You can’t. You can’t keep someone like that in,” said the truck driver. “That is considered kidnapping. The person in the car has the right to pop and shoot you!”

Sasnak has not returned a request from The Daily Beast for comment on the incident. But Sunday afternoon, during a YouTube stream, he added: “Have talked it over with a few of them. One man is still mad at me.”

A Maryland state police officer told The Daily Beast late Saturday night that there was “no kidnapping” on the highway. “Kidnapping and boxing a car and road rage are two different things,” the official added.

By Sunday morning meeting, the convoy turned their attention to their absent leader Brian Brase, who had taken the weekend off to visit family at home in northwestern Ohio — a move that confused his fellow truckers.

While camping at Hagerstown Speedway for weeks, the convoy has continued to make daily trips across the Ringway and more recently to DC. The truck drivers apparently struggle to navigate city traffic, but are often split up by red lights. The group was ridiculed in the city by pedestrians and commuters alike, prompting the convoy to label it “antifa”.
