Hours after President Donald Trump first acknowledged that he lost the presidential election, dozens of his supporters Sunday reaffirmed their allegiance with marches past the homes of two of his Westchester County political rivals.
Playing music, honking horns and shouting through megaphones, they marched past the New Castle homes of Bill and Hillary Clinton and Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Sunday.

CUOMO HOUSE: Sandra Lee deal on New Castle home reveals tax inequities
Dozens of people were seen walking past the Clintons’ home on Old House Lane in Chappaqua and the Bittersweet Lane house that Cuomo formerly shared with Sandra Lee.
Chelsea Clinton tweeted at 5:03 p.m. that Trump supporters were outside her parents’ home shouting “Lock her up.”
There are Trump supporters outside my parents’ house shouting through megaphones “Lock Her Up,” and I just keep thinking, I hope they’re wearing masks and some day get over 2016.

New Castle police said at 6:45 p.m. that the marching had ended without any arrests or trouble. Town police and state troopers were seen parked on Bittersweet Lane as people carrying flags with Trump’s name walked by.
People held signs that read “Cuomo sucks,” “Expose the corruption,” and “Dead people don’t vote!”
Dawn Greenberg, who lives in Chappaqua, said she found the episode “incredibly distressing.”
“I’m sad for the Clintons. I feel like they can’t win. I feel like they’re being targeted. Of course the secret service will keep them safe,” said Greenberg, who founded the Chappaqua Friends of Hillary in 2015 when Clinton announced her candidacy for president. “I just think it’s beyond the pale. It’s like, where are we going with this? It just keeps getting ratcheted up more and more emotion. It makes me sad and scared at the same time.”
