"SNIP.....


Comedy Central

When Jordan Klepper returned to The Last Laugh podcast this month, he revealed that the biggest difference between Trump rallies in 2016 and 2020 is the “desperation” in the air.

“It’s hard to keep the party going with 200,000 dead,” he said. “There are smaller numbers, partially because you could die going to these now. But there’s also a different feeling than there was before.”

It seems to be getting worse. In his final dispatch for The Daily Show before the election next week, Klepper went to Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and was immediately struck by how “subdued” the crowd in the parking lot was. “In this rally, in the final week of election season, I noticed something different,” he said. “It was quiet.”

Klepper even got some Trump fans to admit that they were “exhausted” and “ready to move on.” Or as he put it, “It’s eerily quiet. You can hear a QAnon push notification ding in someone’s pocket.”

3. " . . . there's also a different feeling than there was before."

Most observant people are good at reading the general mood of a crowd, looking at faces, body language, general level of energy, etc.

You can get an overall feeling of joy, anger, happiness, sadness - and in this case, desperation.

But really no surprise. If you really believed all of Trump's promises over the years, disappointment and desperation about those not being delivered, would be normal, for even the thickest of human brains.

“exhausted” and “ready to move on” covers it, really. Hope they act on that when they vote.

4. This is all just so insane, I mean really insane.

Quiet desperation... for what?

Loss of a chance to completely destroy the country
and many more lives, including their own...

Loss of the freedom to show their white supremacist
hate and aggression openly and egregiously...

Loss of the chance to elect more looters and grifters
hellbent on ruining the economy and the planet’s
ability to support our lives...

Give me a big fucking break!

6. The red stripes in the E of Biden's name

are communist banners???

Wonder what she thinks of the red stripes in the US flag? Good ol' Betsy Ross was ahead of her time. Created a commie flag before there was a commie party.

7. I think the whole nation is "exhausted" and "ready to move on."

Especially from Trump and COVID-19.
