Do they know something we don't? Trump's DC hotel is hiking prices for March 4th. QAnon Inaugural.

Trump's DC hotel is hiking prices for March 4 — the day QAnon followers think the former president will be sworn in.

QAnon's most dedicated followers still believe that former President Donald Trump, who lost the 2020 presidential election, is yet to be sworn in.

March 4, 2021 is a day they have marked in their diaries, insisting that is the date when Trump will be inaugurated in Washington, DC, and, ultimately, return to power.

Coincidentally, Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC is hiking up the prices of suites around that period. The hotel, just blocks away from the White House, has almost tripled the rates for some rooms on the nights of March 3 and 4, according to Forbes.

Metro Atlanta hotels started doing that in advance of "Freaknik" after the first one caused so many problems. That, coupled with unwavering enforcement of every single solitary traffic law by the Atlanta Police, pushed Freaknik out of Atlanta within a couple years.

Pricing is really one of the best tools to keep the "riff raff" out.

One can only guess what a nice suite went for.

I suppose they only wanted the better class of fantasists to stay there. The ones in the fur-lined Bentley or Cadillac.

It was the original inauguration day, before it was moved.
Speaking of the Ides of March; that's our anniversary! Got married on that date in 1980.
Don't worry, though. Nobody got stabbed in the back at our reception! LOL!
