CBS News reported that an estimated 87,000 people traveled to the National Mall in Washington to attend the August 28 rally as the conservative commentator called for "a return to traditional American values."
The rally was considered controversial by some, in part because it was held on the 47th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I have a dream" speech.
While President Obama had not watched the rally, he said he supported the right to rally. A number of Democrats spoke publicly against it and many Republicans had avoided mentioning it all together, according to The Washington Post.
The rally followed weeks of news coverage surrounding a poll that said one in five Americans believe President Obama is a Muslim.
