Trump’s Moon, PA Death Rant

By Therealmcteag @therealmcteag

In a spectacular display of gaslighting Trump’s just spent about 5 minutes insisting a drug dealer kills at least 5000 people in their lives and must be killed themselves.

This came after a long screed about the Wall that’s never getting built and impromptu imitations of other world leaders.

Trump also found time to make some pejorative racial cracks about Elizabeth Warren before lacing into repeated long stories about ICE and MS-13. It was pretty hard to figure out if the crowd was chanting ‘Build that Wall” or “Kill Them All”

Later Trump helicoptered back to MS-13 and compared the ICE raids on Long Island to the liberation of a city during war-time and scapegoated immigrants again as he called for penalties for sanctuary cities. The on to chain migration and that Visa Lottery he hates for no apparent reason.

Then he praised the ICE agents s mean brutes, which is the way Trump wants all law enforcement to act (except Mueller, of course). All remarks on criminal justice revolved around the death penalty and 19th Century Opium War analogies which also were about the death penalty. He held up Singapore and China as paragons of justice. As usual his overall tone could be called “Un-American”.

He didn’t seem scripted at all tonight. Maybe all the staff defections prevented anyone from putting any kind of speech. It was just boasting and vitriol.

It was disturbing to have him use imprisonment, the death penalty and nuclear war as punch lines. Whatever.

The unbroken boiler plate technique of never reaching out to the other side remained. as the Trump base becomes less angrier and more volatile. In a particularly unhinged moment he bought Maxine Waters just to bash her intelligence.

And for the first time Ronald Reagan started to take a beating. Trump portrayed himself as not a Carnival Barker but a better version of Ols Dutch and then mentioned some stuff he did better than Reagan.

Then he called himself the most successful first term president in all American History. So Lincoln? Washington? all just a warmup for Trump? The idiots in the crowd bought it.

Political violence doesn’t seem like its far off when you see the way Trump irresponsibly manipulates the fools who cling to him still. I guess its tempting to live in a World where everyone but you and Trump are wrong.

On to an attack on the Democrats. Is there any doubt he’ll launch a criminal probe of any opponent in the next General Election?

Hillary got bashed, Obama got bashed. Even George W Bush got trashed. Lets face it these people were member of Cult 45.

Boasting about his tax plan while using a theoretical nuclear attack on the Olympics as a laugh line. Then he took all the credit for the success of the Olympics themselves.

75 minutes in he’s again boasting of the size of the crowd he drew and criticizing how the media covers it, trying to floor direct the news coverage through sheer bullying.

Like Dana Loesch at CPAC and every other republican for the last 18 months he extolled the crowd by denigratung the media. Lots of Stalin Era terms like Fake News were used by the president in his fuhrer furor.

Over and over he stated that since he’s good news copy he’s a good president. He the imitated himself as a politician. It was better than his serious comments to be honest.

Throwing people in jail, arresting people, killing drug dealers come up over and over. Of course no mention of the chaos or Stormy Daniels as the most secretive least transparent president ever just basically kept puffin’ away with coded racism and one whack idea after another.

He found time to talk about some sort of Secret Weakness of Oprah’s. Personally if another TV personality gets close to the president its off to Canada for me.

And he spent a lot of time interrupting himself as one thought pushed out another. Its hard not to notice the heavy no necked guy behind Trump on my TV’s left who looks seriously inbred next to the lone minorities, 2 people holding up shirts referring to China (Jared’s fans?) at the rally.

The whole speech as disparate and weird. Using violent analogues as a crutch as he wheeled from one idea to another we could tell two things-

-Donald Trump loves the Death Penalty

– Donald Trump wings it at speeches when given the choice.

Then of course it was back to election night and recounting his “Historic’ Russian influenced fluke victory.

Now as trump moves you can see there is in fact one black person there. I guess good for her?

The whole story of election night has become like Hitler talking about World War 1, but with Bones Spurs.

And then an attack ion CNN and more puffery about election night. The margin of victory was either razor slim or Historic from moment to moment.

He did whine about the idea he would be Impeached. Wonder why he thinks that? The he misrepresented his education again and claimed he went to Wharton. He went to the Wharton Campus and took Real Estate Programs (that didn’t last at the school). Maybe he took a management class that some actual Wharton students took. Im sure the school is proud a man who went bankrupt 3 times attributes his success to them. I don’t think they’re ever going to be a “Trump Hall” at the school, unless its Sexual Assault Trauma Counseling Center.

Then Militarism was up for a few boasts and lies where he talked about an incredible American weakness Kim Jong-Un must have loved hearing about.

Finally, having spewed hate apparently off the top of his head for nearly 90 minutes, Trump finally started to introduce the keynote speaker, GOP Hater Rick Saccone, a man who sounded like he had just swallowed broken glass. And the mercifully the coverage ended.

Seriously this was pure Nazi brainwashing. Gaslighting, lies, exaggerations, some pure bullshitting about his popularity being at an all time high when its stagnant below 40 since weeks into his presidency.

And we all had to hear the Keep America Great slogan he’s already unveiled for 2020 re-election effort, which started November 9th 2016.

It was a deep dive into a non reality in the guise of a campaign rally. In fact he barely mentioned the candidate at all.

As the misappropriated legally forbidden Rolling Stones song he wont stop playing sadly played to the collected losers and racists who showed up on a cold winter night to watch a madman it was about as disturbing as could be. Every box checked off on the “Tin  Pot Dictator Fascinated with Hitler” checklist.

Like all Trump speeches it was based largely on the first 5 minutes of 1970’s “Patton”  docu-drama about the hard charging World War Two general. He deeply misunderstands this movie, but his political style is pretty much wholly based on it.
