Brace Yourself: Trump Starts Up His Rallies Again This Weekend


He’s bringing the MAGA circus to Ohio. Here’s why.

by DANIEL MCGRAW JUNE 25, 2021 5:30 AM

When former president Donald Trump announced he was relaunching his rally roadshow—with the first stop being in Wellington, Ohio tomorrow—the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram had this reaction in an op-ed: “Why us? . . . It’s enough to inspire both anticipation and dread.”

While Trump supporters will dismiss such expressions with their usual disdain for the media, his appearance in Ohio should, indeed, inspire some dread. It is very much a singular act, focused on targeting one GOP member of Congress.

Rep. Anthony Gonzalez was one of ten Republicans to vote for Trump’s second impeachment, and his district runs close to this part of Ohio. For that reason, Trump is going to take over the Lorain County Fairgrounds tomorrow to blast a sitting congressman who won his district in 2020 by more than 25 percent, and even ran ahead of Trump by 15,000 votes.

“No, I just don’t think Gonzalez is good. I don’t think he represents the people. I think he’s not somebody that thinks the way I do and others do,” Trump said in a recent podcast, explaining his rationale for the rally.

With a stage set up in the fairgrounds of a small town that is little more than an intersection in farm country, what should we expect?

2. That thought also crossed my mind.

I felt sort of bad about it, but that herd needs to be thinned a bit. Condolences in advance to any collateral damage.

But alas there will be 10 threads about it tomorrow I’m sure. I’d love to be wrong and nobody gives him a second of attention especially on here.

I respect you for not feeling the way I do, but I honestly don't care anymore about these assholes. The world will be a better place IMO with fewer of them around.

24. I just don't think you understand what you're hoping for

The virus can't tell the difference between Republicans and Democrats. While you're wishing for it to spread among Trump fans, you're also wishing for it to spread among Trump opponents.

You're hoping that it has more time to mutate into new variants that can resist the vaccinations. The Delta Variant apparently can fly right past the vaccine, as currently seen in Israel, where half the covid-19 victims are people who've already been vaccinated because of the mutations

You've apparently glommed onto the notion that you can fight ignorance with ignorance. But that opinion is literally pro-ignorant. It's as dumb as being a Trump supporter or a vaccine denier

28. That Is An Inescapable Fact

Yeah, the unvaccinated Morons are going to cause it to spread and mutate. That's going to happen, and there's Nothing that can be done to prevent it, since these assholes can't be reasoned with.

I'm just going to quit now, and end this discussion by saying that so far as those at the rally are concerned, I won't mind if some of them die, and I will feel very saddened that through their actions, they may very well cause others to die, and prolong the pandemic significantly.

29. Yeah, I'm Stooping To Their Level

I 100% assure you that almost every single person at that rally, would wish death upon me and other Democrats, and those who won't get vaccinated, generally don't care about Anybody's health and well being, and they probably never have.

9. I find that the

Rolling stones sound great when high.

I'm doing pretty good over-all. I love the summer. I did re-injure my hip & leg last week -- weeding a rose garden on a steep bank. But my younger son stops in most days, and he and his brother take pretty good care of me, and are doing all the lawn & garden work for me. With crutches, I can get out and sit in a lawn chair, listen to great music, and thank the boys for all they do. And remember the days when I did all of the work! Thanks for asking!

sucks to be you guys. Maybe some super-spreader events of the Delta variant will cull their herd a bit.

7. No matter how many people attend

We should whip up a campaign to mock such poor turnout.

Do that long enough and loud enough and he will stop the rallies. We have seen that from him before, when he feels belittled, he throws a hissy-fit then stops whatever it was that caused him to get taunted.

But that may not work with the rallies. Even if only ten people show up to worship his holiness, that's still sycophants worshipping him... and he is desperate for that.

He’s never been a president; he’s a celebrity. He’s jumped the shark.

so we will see if it goes forward. You know he will never pay, so it will only be if another group pays.

event in the fair grounds so they are relegated to the parking lot

Much hilarity would ensue (if you were watching from a safe distance).

OK, I'm awake again from my great daydream.
