Why does everyone keep calling Trumps rally a fail? It was way more people than Biden has ever drawn in or Hillary or Obama. So there was some tickets that were sent to the democrat thugs to leave seats empty there was people outside and people watching on TV. Doesn't mean that he has less votes. How many did Joe Biden draw to Liberty Memorial? Wasn't even enough to fill the yard out front. You democrats must really be scared. I kinda hope Biden does well though because he hates blacks and wanted to keep segregation and that's what we need right now. I would even try to help him if he wins.

Poor Trump. The parade has passed him by, and he still thinks he's the cheerleader. Sad.

ABC's Martha Raddatz must have had a terrible childhood.

She is such a hateful individual.

Every second of every day she is angry at Trump. Trump is so in her head. Maybe Martha has a Daddy complex and Trump is her surrogate Daddy.

What a miserable life Raddatz must have.

And yet the Tulsa rally is evidence Trump may be the Norma Desmond of 2020--"I'm ready for my closeup, Mr. DeMille."

odds are you can't even get up from you chair without getting dizzy just like most readers of this blog.

The only thing you "crush" is your seat cushion when you fart into it all day.

6:19 - You're funny. Obama has pulled plenty of fucking huge crowds. Seriously though, it doesn't really matter. The reason everyone is mocking Trump is he hyped this thing up like it was going to be Woodstock part whatever. And it was Spinal Tap. It was laughable. And Trump is absolutely butt hurt over it. He's a clinical definition of a narcissist and he was pissed that the thing wasn't packed. They had an outdoor stage planned for chrissakes and began dismantling the stage right away due to pathetic attendance. They sent out texts saying "there's plenty of room".

And then those in attendance yawned their way through listening to the typical Trump diatribe of personal greivances. Yay, Trump can drink water with one hand and walk down a ramp! The way political opponents live in the empty head rent free is quite humorous.

Now Trump is claiming that "phony Ballots" are being printed in unnamed "foreign Countries"!

No sane person ever felt that Trump would willingly leave Office if he lost the Election, now the only question is whether the Republican Party has the integrity and Patriotism to support the Constitution of this Republic or has sold its soul irrevocably to support of this would-be Dictator!

9:44 - Trump knows this is bullshit but it's also a tool for voter suppression. It's already happening in places during primaries. In the name of safety during a pandemic, Republican administrations are taking away polling places. As if that makes any sense at all. It now forces voters in 'certain' districts to stand in line for hours due to minimal polling locations.

Suppression is the new Republican strategy.
