  1. Ooh look, it’s Apartheid America.

  2. Like attracts like:

    Trump is a weak, insecure whiny “victim”, which to me sounds like a pretty accurate description of the Cult45.

  3. A Nation cannot be truly great without a Moral Compass and the Truth is a moral compass can only point you in the right direction; it can’t make you go there. This Nation need to elect leaders who have a strong moral compass, Leaders who are honest, straightforward, and tough – with a love of justice and fair play. None of which has been exhibited by Trump, The House or Senate Republicans. The Republican Party as of 16th July 2019 is No Longer the Grand Old Party (GOP) but is the Sycophantic Party of Racist Bigoted Xenophobes who prostrate themselves before their Deity a Misogynistic, Egotistical; Megalomaniac; Demagogue, Authoritarian, Xenophobic White Nationalist 73 year old Bigoted/Racist man-child. “… If we ever closed the door to new Americans, our leadership in the world would soon be lost.” President Ronald Reagan 19th January 1989. I wonder what a Real President like Reagan would think of the GOP now.

    If the people who are at his rallies only knew how much he makes fun of them and calls them white trash.

  8. God bless Donald Trump!

  9. The closer it gets the more I’m dreading having to go to Idaho for Thanksgiving…

    He lies. 45 karma will get you.

  14. Lol!! And to think the neoliberal Wall Street Democrat national committee lost to this fascist warthog back in 2016.

    Looked to me like a lot of that audience abstained from chanting. As for doing it deliberately, you can see him stare in the direction of the first chant, and wait for it. The cue was ‘obviously and importantly’.

  16. Provocative hate rally spectacle, coming from a guy who’s grandfather was German and listening to that rhetoric is almost back to the future

  17. You media folks need to quit pandering to Trump. Every time you bring up his stupid antics, you play into his game.

  18. Intentionally stoking racial animus to get attention and applause. Great idea Doony, I’m sure that’ll end well…
