Remember when Trump insulted his way through the primaries?

It was how he won. He gave everybody a nasty nickname, made fun of the handicapped, insulted women’s look, trashed dead soldier and his family for being Muslim, dismissed the judge for being Mexican, said Mexicans are rapists. He did it to win the Primary. It was the way he campaigns.

That is what he’s doing now. He’s in full on campaign mode.


So naturally he’s pulling the media’s and the American people’s chain and sure enough! He’s got everyone’s attention again. Suddenly he’s getting completely free coverage again. We’re being bombarded with endless damn clips of his latest insults.

Does the world really need to hear every splatter of diarrhea that spews from his anal mouth? Is there actually anyone left who hasn’t made up their mind about him yet? Fuck!

3. This hateful man

The only way he knows, is to spew out his hate speech, the way he acts puts people against people. Does anyone else see a comparison to the Hitler rallies, they were full of hate against jews, immigrants and anyone a little different. This was the beginning of WW2. Trump's two years in the White House have been two years of hate rallies. I can see it, he is the one who should be locked up!

Two years of this shit he doesn't get the benefit of the doubt from independents and blue collar Democrats, soft Republican women who couldn't bring themselves to pull the lever for her even though Emperor dumb ass was a obviously a lying pig. Many Bernie or busters have seen enough of this shit show and so have the non political types who voted the pig because of name recognition.

He’s gotten to the point where he has to make them happy now. He’s in essence, their puppet though he doesn’t realize it yet.

If and when we take back the House the tune will change and his hoards will get frustrated and angrier and more disappointed. Sure, they’ll rail at us, but he won’t get anything done.

At least we have less than a month of 24/7 Trump in campaign mode.

Since I’ve seen when he put on his worst behavior is when he was in the Primaries. He’ll stoop to levels even he doesn’t normally go to when he wants to win. Right now he wants to win the midterms. He truly believes his tactics just need to be revived during this last month.

Even Fox news quit showin his rallies because the ratings dropped.

This is h he is pullng stunts like Kanya West. Raving about how Trump is his daddy who would play baseball with him while we see a good portion of the county wiped off the map, devastating millions of people.

How awful his is for them, lives, homes destroyed while the president poses wih a raving, mentally ill man, then goes out,calls protesters angry mobs.

Sickening!

The huge republican field of candidates played right into Trumps one-liners. In those "debates" - one line is about all they got!

I think FOX just announced they won't be televising every rally...bad ratings apparently.

This time he added Christine Blasey Ford to his list of women to insult.

If there’s a hell it probably has a special hole reserved just for him and his toothless followers.

If not then Maybe he’ll get a karma adjustment.

14. "Is there actually anyone left who hasn't made up their mind about him yet?"

Doubtful. And contrary to wishful thinking, his approval rating has been incredibly steady. None of his predecessors have had such a steady approval rating. He has a cult following and nothing he says or does will dissuade Cult45.

54. True. They become the snowflakiest snowflakes ever...

You’re 100% correct. My example: For years now, 45’s rallies have featured that psycho-buffoon’s taunting, bullying, encouraging rough stuff, leading chants about imprisoning defeated political foes, etc.

This past week, Eric Holder told an audience, "When they go low, we kick them." He continued, though, saying he did not want people to actually kick Republicans: "When I say we kick them, I don’t mean we do anything inappropriate, we don’t do anything illegal, but we have to be tough and we have to fight," Holder said.

The noise from the right was one big butthurt chorus. Hannity (Sorry): “Liberal rage. Eric Holder seemingly endorsed the scenes of rage and protests taking place throughout the nation in the aftermath of Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation.”

It always, always, comes down to IOKIYAR.
