A Trump Rally Thins Out.

Want to start the week off with the best video of all time? Well, maybe not of all time, but certainly in the last couple of weeks.

It’s a video of a ‘huge’ group of pro-Trumpers who held a rally in front of Trump Tower yesterday and then drove out to the Bedminster club where Trump is staying and preparing for next week’s court appearance in New York.

Maybe there were 30–40 so-called ‘protestors’ standing around on 5th Avenue promoting Trump by giving the onlookers the finger or yelling some curse words at anyone taking a selfie or a video pic. Then they drove out to Trump’s golf club in Bedminster and stood around yelling and cursing again.

Trump didn’t appear anywhere near these events, although a guy who dressed up like Trump, including the orange hairdo, actually posed for pictures and mumbled a few words.

Meanwhile, the media carried a story about how Trump-o said a whole bunch of things that weren’t even remotely close to being true when he was interviewed this weekend on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ by Kristen Welker in her debut as the replacement for Chuck Todd.

After more than eight years since Trump-o announced his first Presidential campaign, the Fake News still doesn’t understand Trump-o or his supporters at all. I’m not talking about people who voted for Trump simply because he was the GOP nominee and most people vote for one party line or the other, regardless of whose names appear on the ballot.

I’m talking about the real, die-hard fans who come out to the rallies, who march around with their MAGA flags, who tell any newscaster who sticks a microphone in their face that Trump is the ‘best President we ever had.’

People like that don’t form their political opinions after weighing all the facts. They voted for Trump-o and they support Trump-o because they ‘like’ him — it’s as simple as that.

Why do they like him? Who the fuck knows. They just do.

Facts? Analysis? Who the fuck cares?

I knew an older white guy who loved Trump. After the 2020 election, he told me with a complete lack of doubt that the reason Joe won New Hampshire was because ‘they took them up from Boston on buses to vote twice.’
