Trump will resume MAGA rallies ‘in the next two weeks’

The MAGA rallies will resume until morale improves … or MAGAs start dropping like flies.  Donald Trump has lately been jonesing for his rallies because 1) he loves the mirroring he gets from other racists and 2) rambling incoherently and telling silly lies are pretty much the only things he’s good at.

Well, surprise! The rallies are returning before COVID-19 has left the building. In fact, they’re set to return in the next two weeks, according to a report in Politico.

The president has been itching to resume his boisterous rallies, his favorite way to connect with supporters and let off steam. He’s planning to use the events to drive home what is expected to be a major theme of his campaign: that he is the leader of the country’s reopening and economic rebound. Trump held a hastily-called press conference Friday to celebrate an unexpectedly strong jobs report, and his campaign immediately began running a massive ad campaign seizing on the news.

“Americans are ready to get back to action and so is President Trump. The great American comeback is real and the rallies will be tremendous,” Parscale said in a statement. “You’ll again see the kind of crowds and enthusiasm that sleepy Joe Biden can only dream of.”

So what’s the Trump campaign slogan going to be now? “Make America Great Again, Again — We Mean It This Time”? Or maybe “Trump 2020: Whatever Doesn’t Kill You Will Kill You Next Term.”

Of course, this is a bad idea for a lot of reasons — not least of which is the continued prevalence and virulence of the novel coronavirus.

But Trump and Co. think they’ve solved that problem:

While Trump is likely to face blowback for resuming in-person events while the coronavirus pandemic is still ravaging the country, his advisers contend that the recent massive protests in metropolitan areas will make it harder for liberals to criticize him.

1) Yes, fighting against racism is exactly the same thing as fighting for racism. Sure.

2) The MAGA crowd almost certainly won’t be social distancing or wearing masks, even as the Trump spittle flies like watermelon detritus at a Gallagher concert. Because Trump thinks masks are for losers and nerds, and Trump’s fans think whatever Trump thinks.

3) Well, as long as liberals can’t criticize you for it, yes, by all means, kill your voters.

I have a feeling this will end badly. The coronavirus hasn’t disappeared, after all. The only thing that’s really changed is our focus on it. And, again, Trump is showing that his desperate need to be acknowledged and to win reelection supersedes the health and very lives of his own followers, whom he very clearly hates.

Trump is a essentially a war criminal , responsible for 113.000 deaths of American citizens due to his purposeful, considered negligence, omission ,incompetence and delay in the response to the pandemic.A 9-11 type commission needs to be instituted to investigate the full culpability of Trump Administration. GOP investigated BenGhazi(4 deaths) for 4 years and after 10 investigations,didn’t find anything incriminatory.That was just to defeat Hillary Clinton,as the GOP admitted later. Trump has real culpability and had instigated over 28,000 BenGhazis on USA.He needs to pay for it.

Hell nothing changed since 2016, Same old bull shit and 18 000 lies. More sniffing, and DEMENTIA settling in deeper, he needs hospital help ASAP. Hope his sick base can help, and he won’t have a stroke on stage or demented seiger . He should get off the stuff he is using, so he won’t make a mistake and sell his country out plus his off spring.. Resign and get help for that sickness.

What great news! Let them all gather under one roof to hail their magnificent orange god. There will be less of them to vote for him after they’ve all contracted covid19 and died. That’s unless he dies with them. But then again he is god and can’t be defeated.

I hate to be crass, but if Donald is willing to sacrifice his base on the altar of his Ego, let’s help. Only allow the “Trump Circus” to perform in states with exploding COVIC cases (most of whom are deeply Republican) and further, fire-wall his base from society by demanding when the first cases start popping out of his “Death Rallies”, that all his attendees be quarantined. Many will perish, the remainder will hate Donald for treating them as disposable, and we win on both counts.

By Fall, his support is mostly dead or terminally pissed off.

Five states have turned his fat ass down who in the hell could be that stupid to let this liar, con, fraud, mass murder, yellow coward, SCARED OF HIS FAT SHADOW AS IN BUNKER BOY, OR BONE SPUR.

LOSER AND LATER STOLE HIS FATHERS MONEY WHEN HE WAS DYING DEMENTIA, BUT WHO THE HELL… Read more »
