I just watched the Trump rally.

There is no way to fact check him in real time.

He tells 3 or 4 lies in one sentence.

It would take hours to go through his speech and point out each lie he told.

The crowd believes everything he says.

They are all insane.

1. And THAT is why Trump prefers rallies.

The faithful never question him.

His parents ignored him, and we all suffer for that.

24. We should not dismiss Trump going to places like that.

I think that his campaign simply did a better job than our side did in that regard in 2016. If he can elevate his vote by a few hundred votes by going to a place like that, there are so many of them that he can blunt the effect of our power in the cities. I hope in 2020, our General campaign makes a point of getting to places like that, President Obama did two times to great effect.

42. Yes and no

Agree Clinton's campaign wrote off places like this to concentrate on the vote rich areas, but after 40 years of non-stop attacks on her and Bill, there were a lot of voters who simply did not like her. It's not like the state didn't vote for Dems, we swept all the statewide row offices and picked up a couple of seats on the superior(?) court. With a better candidate, we'd have picked up Toomey's sentate seat, too. Last year, Casey and Wolf were easily re-elected, we picked up 5 CDs, 6 state senate seats and 11 state house seats. If Philadelphia had voted at the same rate as the lightly populated areas, she'd have won.

Trump is seriously unpopular here and has been for awhile, that's why he has to go to a tiny place like Montoursville.

34. Looked like a Press Gang swept through town, and rounded up some 'constituents' who needed a per

diem. Interesting to hear what's said from the crowd.
He needs to do some fkin work. He's not just some 'show pony'....groan . My god,
He's been on a 2 year pampering spree...of himself. As if this miserable excuse, even approximates a reward response. Whatever.happened to 'I'll never leave the WH. I'd be too busy."guy?
He does NOTHING but plot his future, and our demise.
Cut him off Congress. You have standing to make an argument for the American People that the election was not legit, nor reason for any mandate by he and his cronies, and we don't consent to footing the bill for it either. Cut him off please.

They have added a new chant to their repertoire, Lock Them Up.

The chant came after he mentioned the 'fake' Russia investigation.

27. Jeff Daniels, discussing the play "To Kill a Mockingbird," said something to the effect

that being a member of a mob relieves people of their consciences, and that this is what happens at Trump rallies.

OK, I found it:

"Daniels said, “A mob is a place where people go to take a break from their conscience. … That’s what I see when I look at Donald Trump’s rallies, that’s when I see the lies he’s spewing at these people, and people going, ‘I gotta believe in something,’ and he said he’d bring my manufacturing job back and she didn’t, and I’m all in.’ But … at the end of the day, it’s race. It’s race.”" https://deadline.com/2019/05/jeff-daniels-donald-trump-republican-party-msnbc-the-end-of-democracy-1202619265/

a few hundred racist ignorant liars on 1500 unchallenged radio stations have already prechewed his talking points and pounded them into the earholes of 50 mil a week for months and years.

we're the insane ones doing nothing different, always ignoring talk radio, getting trashed by these assholes and their propaganda operation every year since the late 80's

Needless to say, I didn't actually WATCH it. I don't think I could stomach that.

I did read about on the Hill.

43. All according to plan

"We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors … and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do."
