A speaker at a pro-Trump rally in Washington, D.C. encouraged mask-free protesters to hug each other while bragging that it was a "mass-spreader event" on Tuesday.

The so-called "Prayer to Save America" protest was part of a larger "Stop the Steal" effort to overturn President Donald Trump's 2020 election loss.

"Turn the person next to him and give him a hug, someone you don't know," the speaker said. "Go hug somebody. Go ahead and spread it out, mass spreader. It's a mass-spreader event! It's a mass-spreader event! It's a mass-spreader event!"

"There you go. Hug it out!" he added. "I'm married but if you want to give me a hug too, you can do that."

The protest is expected to increase in size before Congress meets to accept the results of the Electoral College on Wednesday.
