Rikkitic:

 

MSNBC says only 6200 people showed up to the rally. Trump is so full of hubris it is coming out his orifices.

 

 

6,200 is 0.62% of "1,000,000 tickets".

TRUMP TO HOLD NEXT RALLY IN BUNKER

 

TULSA (The Borowitz Report)—Stung by the paltry turnout at his Saturday-night rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Donald J. Trump’s campaign chairman, Brad Parscale, has announced plans to hold the next rally in the  White House bunker.

 

He denied that the choice of venue reflected a tepid level of enthusiasm to see the candidate speak.

 

“The bunker holds forty people,” Parscale said. “That's more than enough.”

 

Despite the choice of such an intimate venue, however, Trump campaign sources are privately worried that they may have difficulty filling the bunker.

 

According to one source, Jared Kushner spent all of Sunday morning on the phone begging people to attend the bunker rally.

 

“All of Jared’s friends are coming, so that’s five seats right there,” the source said.





'Ask not what you can do for your country: ask what you can do for me'. Donald J.Trump. US President 2016 - 2020.

NPR: Facebook And Twitter Remove 'Racist Baby' Video Posted By President Trump

Facebook and Twitter said Friday that a post shared by President Trump about a "racist baby" has been removed from the platforms following a copyright complaint from one of the children's parents.

Officials at both social media companies confirmed to NPR that the president's video was deleted from the platforms following a request from the rights holder.

The action comes after Twitter on Thursday added a label to the tweet warning that the content contained manipulated media intended to deceive viewers.

The tweet included deceptively doctored footage of two toddlers, one black, one white, running down a sidewalk with the fake CNN headline: "Terrified toddler runs from racist baby," as suspenseful music plays.

"Racist baby probably a Trump voter," the fabricated headline then says.

Then the video shows viral footage from last year of the two babies sprinting toward each other and hugging, falsely suggesting that CNN had manipulated what happened to create a fake news story. That never happened.

Now, when viewers try to play the video shared by the president, a message appears saying the media has been disabled.

Trump did not immediately respond to Facebook and Twitter removing the footage.

I realise the video was doctored, but I think I missed something - Trump said the white baby would have voted for him, and was also racist? Why would he post something like this?

quickymart:Why would he post something like this?

 

Because: "He is Trump!"

 

(Need anyone to say any more?)

Good news for Bush!

From Wikipedia:
Donald J. Trump—entering the SCRI survey for the first time—joined Andrew Johnson, James Buchanan, Warren G. Harding, and Franklin Pierce among the bottom five US presidents.

George W. Bush, who presidential scholars had rated among the bottom five in the previous 2010 survey, improved to a position in the third quartile.

In a time when morbidly obese was rare, Taft supposedly became stuck in the White House bathtub, and was buried in a piano box.

Harrison was only in office for a month before dying.

So the Republican presidents of the last years have been criminal (Nixon), senile (Reagan) incompetent (Bush) and all three (Trump). That is quite a record.

Remember this last month?

 

 

In an exchange with reporters in the White House briefing room last month, Trump was pressed for more information on the scheme he has taken to calling “Obamagate.” What crime, a reporter asked him, was he accusing the former president of committing?

 

“You know what the crime is,” Trump responded, providing no details. “The crime is very obvious to everybody. All you have to do is read the newspapers -- except yours.”

CNN: Trump aides debate future size and look of signature rallies after Tulsa debacle

Swaths of empty blue seats and a vacant overflow venue in Oklahoma have led President Donald Trump's aides to begin debating what his signature campaign rallies will look like going forward, people familiar with the matter say.

Ahead of the President's visit on Saturday to Tulsa, there had been tentative plans to announce another rally for the near future, perhaps as early as the next two weeks.

Now, it remains unclear when -- and how -- Trump will move forward with his flagship political events. Some advisers suggested it could be weeks or even months before Trump attempts another rally, though as of Monday morning no decisions had been made on how to proceed.

Biden may well end up running against Pence. Trump seems to be drifting pretty close to 25th Amendment territory.

Trump is claiming there will be millions of fake mail in votes. Epic trolling from Trump. It's either that or a request ; ).

Washington Post explains reasons this kind of fraud is unlikely to succeed.
