There was something highly unusual about Donald Trump’s rally Thursday afternoon in Billings, Montana.

Although the crowd was huge — estimates ran as high as 12,000 — there wasn’t a single protester. None, nada, zero, zip, zilch.

No one was there to halt traffic trying to attend the event at Rimrock Auto Arena. No one walked away with a black eye or bloody nose. No one was ejected from the arena, no one tried to shout down the presumptive Republican presidential nominee and no police cruisers got trashed.

“People of Billings and the surrounding areas in the state of Montana can be extremely proud of their respect of this potential president,” rally attendee Sandy Petersen told local NBC affiliate KULR Channel 8 News. “There were no people in there protesting. They were all courteous. I think that’s probably a first for Donald Trump. But that’s Montana for you.”

The first group in line to attend the event arrived at 10:00 o’clock Wednesday evening.

Canadian Ryan Parker was a member of that group, even though he can’t vote in the election.

“Canada is completely engaged in this American election just like the rest of the world,” he told the station. “And if you can have an opportunity to see somebody in your back yard, to be a part of it, to understand what people are thinking, how they’re feeling, and actually to just be a part of it, I think that it’s a win-win situation.”

Imagine that… thousands of Trump fans peacefully assemble. Shhhh…
