As Kentucky's Shadow Looms, Trump Scrambles To Avoid Recurrence In Louisiana

Source: TPM



November 7, 2019 8:11 a.m.

A sweaty President Donald Trump, flanked by the mustachioed stars of “Duck Dynasty,” took to the stage last night to lend his support to Republican Eddie Rispone, the candidate trying to unseat Democratic Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards in a runoff election.

Trump served up his usual helping of “Democratic hoaxes,” whistleblower “coups” and “deranged” impeachment proceedings to an adoring crowd clad in red hats and bearing signs of “[insert particular demographic] for Trump.”

But despite the all-business-as-usual appearance of the rally, a Kentucky-shaped pall hung over the room as next Saturday’s election inches closer.

Despite his blustering tweets to the contrary, Trump realizes — and even warned before a ballot was cast — that Gov. Matt Bevin’s (R) loss to Democratic Attorney General Andy Beshear Tuesday night was a direct commentary on the limitations of his coattails. Just a day before Kentuckians took to the polls, Trump was giving a similar speech before a similar crowd, endorsing another candidate who crafted himself in the President’s image.

Now, Trump has gone all in again. He has another trip planned to Louisiana two days before the runoff election on the 16th, and will attend the barn burner LSU-Alabama game this Saturday — coincidentally, the last day of early voting.

1. Waiting to see if ah, AF1 has a last minute engine problem and Trumpy can't appear.

Their candidate is a fool if he allows Trumpenstein within 100 miles of this rally!

2. It gives me great pleasure to know that Trump despises those swamp-billies.

I can call them swamp-billies . . . I live in Louisiana.

Being a New Yorker, he has to loathe those bearded Robinson fools, and John Kennedy and Eddie Rispone with their thick southern accents.

He has no choice but to suck up to them now. I hope he regrets his decision to run for president every day for the rest of his life.

3. I am not sure Trump understands the passion of SEC football fans.

Regardless of party fans only want their team thinking about the game on Saturday. On the LSU Football boards I read, no one wants him at the game.

7. Duck Dynasty is still a thing? They really need some new celebrities.

Although I'm sure they would pull from the same group of assholes, so...
