There's to many high-falutin' concepts and frankly big words for this discussion to be about Disaster Don any more.

Gotta love the visual of the two kids wearing cartoon prison stripes sitting directly behind Trump at the rally tonight.

(eta)
I only saw the first few minutes, went out to get groceries, and 90 minutes later came back and caught the last few minutes. I'm sure I didn't miss anything. I did also like the look of the very small crowd just appearing like they're at a county fair or something, to listen to a popular local band. Newsmax carried it but I don't think the other major/cable networks have even reported on it yet.

Trump did seem more animated than he has been in a long time. Must be all the extra golfing.

Donald Trump is gathering his unvaccinated supporters together in close quarters as the highly contagious and deadly Delta variant spreads in Ohio. What could go wrong?

The act is getting old among Trump supporters. They are finding that there are better ways to spend a Saturday evening.

I'd rather have a root canal than go to a Trump rally. Scientists need to find a vaccination for stupidity as it seems to be rampant in certain states.

As noted in the Tweet, they sent the guy there to video it. Why didn't they have him ask questions of those people why they were leaving? Poor jounalism, if that's what it was.

Reading the comments on your link revealed that USAA is a sponsor of Tucker Carlson and Fox. I've had USAA car insurance for 50 years. I will be changing my insurance company if they do not pull their sponsorship.

Weird. The Republican commitee in Michagan not only tossed the Trumplican claims of voter fraud right out, it was so bad the invited they MI AG to investigate Trumplican attempts at fraud.

One might think that the Trumplicans might get the damn message, but no.

Skeptics shouldn't just believe everything they see on Youtube or the internet without further investigation.

After watching it and noting that it's dusk, I'm questioning if the rally wasn't just over and people are leaving. It's also possible that they're leaving because Trump had finished speaking and they didn't care about staying any other speaker.

Barr and McConnell confirmed this story:

McConnell urged Barr to speak out on Trump's election claims
Quote:
Then-Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) privately urged former Attorney General William Barr to refute unsubstantiated claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election, in part because he thought it would ensure GOP victories in two Georgia Senate runoff elections.

McConnell had not publicly criticized former President Trump's claims of fraud, in part because he believed it would enrage Trump to the point that he would sabotage the two Georgia runoffs.

But the Kentucky Republican had been telling Barr privately since mid-November that Trump's claims were damaging to the party and to the country, according to an excerpt of the upcoming book "Betrayal" by ABC News chief Washington correspondent Jonathan Karl published in The Atlantic on Sunday.
Quote:
The excerpt also details Barr's relationship with Trump in the final weeks of the administration when he decided to give prosecutors approval to investigate the fraud claims and opened his own unofficial inquiry into the matter.

“My attitude was: It was put-up or shut-up time,” Barr told Karl. “If there was evidence of fraud, I had no motive to suppress it. But my suspicion all the way along was that there was nothing there. It was all ************.”
https://thehill.com/homenews/adminis...lection-claims

The only thing McConnell really cares about is getting his Senate Majority leadership back.

When Barr did speak to Trump:
Quote:
During the conversation, Trump reportedly lambasted Barr for his comment, asking him “How the f--- could you do this to me? Why did you say it?”

“Because it’s true,” Barr responded.

Trump then responded, “You must hate Trump. You must hate Trump.”
Notice the odd use of illeism.

Dump was still speaking. You could hear him in the background.

'Scores of people left early': Trump supporters walked out of rally after his speech 'fell flat'

Maybe he wasn't getting a good feedback loop from the audience but he sounded fairly lackluster. Maybe he's experiencing a bit of depression as mentally ill people are known to do.

I did mention I thought he was more animated than he used to be, but again, it was only the first few minutes and the last few minutes I saw.

If just advertising on a show is considered "sponsoring", they surely spend plenty at CNN also. In fact, when they go to commercial break I often involuntarily shout "AA!" because that's how their incessant commercials start.

People are leaving because people like winners and he’s talking like a loser

He's not talking any differently than he did in 2015. So I guess their idea of "loser" has changed?

You're right. I turned up the volume and Trump was still speaking. As usual, he never said anything new or of substance. He just recycled the same old crap he always does. No wonder people left. But the question is: why did they bother in the first place.? Just the same recycled crap.

Because many of them still believe in the Dump dream. Slowly but surely however, the masses are fading away.

Not really. The same talk takes on a different tone when it's coming from the mouth of a loser than it does from a winner.

I'd say whoever appointed him needs to be taken to task, and why wasn't he fired if he was so bad?

Given that the letter was WAY more than 140 characters, is grammatically correct and spelled properly, and refers to copious details that he could never remember, it's dollars to donuts that the Mango Mussolini had nothing whatever to do with it. A lackey wrote this, probably prompted by a whine from a golf cart. That, or junior wrote it and passed it off as his dad's work. Either way, it's pompous horse-****.

He's not saying the same stuff he said before the election. Now a large chunk, if not all, of any given "speech" he makes is whining about the loss.

Reading Trump's statement about Barr just reinforces that he is mentally ill and totally delusional. Mary Trump and the other psychologists/psychiatrists were absolutely right when they said he would get worse. If this nut ever got back into the WH, we'd be up crap creek. He's insane.

BREAKING—
Sen Josh Hawley & Sen Kyrsten Sinema are now reportedly in possession of previously unseen Jan 6 film footage showing a ‘different narrative’ than what is being shared by Democrats & MSM.

@OANN
is covering additional in-depth details.
Reading other tweets like the one above in your link also confirms what Dr. Bandy Lee said about his followers :


Quote:
I have outlined two major emotional drives: narcissistic symbiosis and shared psychosis. Narcissistic symbiosis refers to the developmental wounds that make the leader-follower relationship magnetically attractive. The leader, hungry for adulation to compensate for an inner lack of self-worth, projects grandiose omnipotence—while the followers, rendered needy by societal stress or developmental injury, yearn for a parental figure. When such wounded individuals are given positions of power, they arouse similar pathology in the population that creates a “lock and key” relationship.

“Shared psychosis”—which is also called “folie à millions” [“madness for millions”] when occurring at the national level or “induced delusions”—refers to the infectiousness of severe symptoms that goes beyond ordinary group psychology. When a highly symptomatic individual is placed in an influential position, the person’s symptoms can spread through the population through emotional bonds, heightening existing pathologies and inducing delusions, paranoia and propensity for violence—even in previously healthy individuals. The treatment is removal of exposure.

He's obsessed with revenge on any and everyone he believes has aggrieved him. And I do mean obsessed literally.

That you're an idiot.

What struck me as I looked back and thought about that exchange between Don Jr. and his father was, first, that Mr. Trump had frequently told me and others that his son Don Jr. had the worst judgment of anyone in the world.
(Michael Cohen testified under oath the above)

Quote:
“He’s not the sharpest knife in the drawer,” the president reportedly said in 2017, after the full extent of Don Jr.'s haphazardly arranged Trump Tower Moscow meeting came to light.
Quote:
“Their father took some regular pleasure in pointing out that [Don Jr. and Eric] were in the back of the room when God was handing out brains,” Wolff wrote (in Fire and Fury).

It's probably video of a Proud Boy getting in a cop's face while shouting, "I'm not attacking you! I'm not attacking you!", which will of course be held up as proof that they weren't attacking the cops.

There's another guy in the background beating a cop with a Thin Blue Line flag.

What's melania up to, trump was asked. She's doing a great job, a really great job. And she's confident. The people love her. Yadda yadda yadda. See for yourself.

When's the last time he actually saw her? Do they still have separate bedrooms?

Worst thing of all is the shtick has gotten boring.

Only thing new is his turning on Barr and the Supreme Court.

Right now that includes over 50% of the US population.

Those against Trump feared his speeches because she was an impulsive brat, but one with Presidential powers. Those who loved him loved them for the same reasons. Now, out of power and only QAnon fantasies getting him back into it he’s just a rambling man bragging about ancient accomplishments that are mostly his delusions. There’s no fear factor any more, and that is boring his fans. He’s become a Harold Stassen with much fewer accomplishments.

Notice he never answered the question about what she is doing now except a single vague reference to "helping people".

Trump never actually answered the question. He never mentioned what she's doing now; it was all about the past including her "very, very successful" modeling career. Which is another lie. She was a second rate model who mostly did nude or semi-nude jobs because that's all she could get. He repeatedly told us how 'confident' she is, how much she's beloved, and how the was badly treated by the press. But what's she doing now we still don't know. I'd bet top dollar she's not "helping other people" as he claims.

Almost every political anylist says that if he is serious about making another run in 2024, he has got to start winning back some of hte people he has alienated.he seems to have no interest in doing that.
