Trump promotes video showing apparent supporter shouting 'white power'

Source: nbc




Trump said the supporters shown in the video were "great people."

June 28, 2020, 9:42 AM CDT By Allan Smith

President Donald Trump promoted a video on Twitter Sunday morning showing a man in a golf cart with Trump campaign gear shouting "white power."

The video, which Trump said was from the Florida retirement community known as The Villages, featured a parade of golf carts, some with pro-Trump signs, driving past anti-Trump protesters who were shouting curses at them. The man who is heard shouting "white power" was responding to protesters shouting "racist."

"Thank you to the great people of The Villages," Trump wrote. "The Radical Left Do Nothing Democrats will Fall in the Fall. Corrupt Joe is shot. See you soon!!!"

5. The Villages?

Otherwise known as "The STD capitol of Florida"? These are tRumps kind of people for sure. Retired old geezers, fornicating like rabbits. Yeah, Don the Con would fit right in there.

6. Nothing left in the bag of tricks

The one trick pony has nothing left. Nothing...absolutely nothing left but to hope to incite some sort of violent clash to force cancellation of the election. "Corrupt Joe is shot"?!! Was that wording a dog whistle?!! We must win and it must be a whooping leaving zero doubt what the majority of great Americans feel about him and our country.

14. It's no mistake or regret

It's deliberate. Trump is driving up the fear factor. Mischaracterizing the protests as violent looters and shooters, tweets such as this to juice MAGAts and scare the left. Incompetence on the virus too. It's all the same. Fear-based psyops. It's probably an angle on trying to scare people off Joe Biden. Fear all around for everyone.

He's desperate.

16. Fear is the only thing any republican has in order to win.

They have to instill a strong sense of fear in the simpleminded, and of course only republicans can protect them from those fears. Hope isn't in the republican vernacular.

15. When I first retired...

I took a look at homes in 'The Villages'. I was not impressed with the people there, and I'm of a firm belief that you should be exposed to all ages of people in all stages of your life. I could tell right away that there were a plethora of right-wing assholes living there, so I didn't consider that place any further. There are too many places like that in Florida, "55 and over" only. Screw that. I moved to a neighborhood with all ages of people, but after awhile the culture shock (not to mention the heat) were too much for this New York boy to bear. Back to New York, and I haven't regretted it since.

19. I was thinking about this over the weekend

While Trump claims to manage his own twitter feed, I have the feeling that some in his administration have his password.

Because of this, I am starting to think that there are individuals in his administration who are fed up with him and are posting embarrassing things, like this, in an effort to tank his candidacy.
