As Trump's World Turns: Jokes? Shooting Immigrants? White Power Sign?

 Image result for jokes

Joking? Watch a recent broadcast segment from MSNBC" Jokes?" No, the segment isn't laced with funny items from the Trump carnival show. Give the video a watch ......and think of how leadership impacts people.

MSNBC's The Last Word w/Lawrence O'Donnell

It was a joke.

Let's take "joke" to another level and another arena.

First this...

And this week there is this flash during a broadcast of a Chicago Cubs Baseball game.

Well, a Cubs fan allowed his inner core beliefs and vision of what supremacy overshadow his common sense and judgment. After being reported to have been banned form Cubs games, he spoke. CBS Link, here.   

Inner core judgment? Joke? Think about the Lawrence O'Donnell segment at the top of this piece.  People laughed, smiled and relished the moment at public lynchings of black people during the decades of Jim Crow. 

Let's end with a reminder from Business Insider: Since Trump, hate crimes have increased by 226 percent.

As Trump's World Turns: "Wind doesn't blow", "Pencil-neck", "Michelle OBama"

...Yup, another Trump rally

First a look and listen to the hordes who line-up for Trump's Grand Rapids rally.

Now let's visit inside the cesspool.

A Trump Grand Rapids Michigan carnival show rally included personal insults, forays into a Chicago criminal case, profanity and general stands as yet another free-to-attend oozest. Would you consider viewing a few samples from the podium?

We're 2 minutes in and Trump has already goaded his fans into booing the media twice— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) March 28, 2019
Trump's audience sits with a presidential demagogue railing about our world (nothing related to policy other than slamming immigrants) while calling Democrats in Congress "sick people". Sick people? Have you ever heard of strategy related to deflection accompanied by a person with a lack of personal perception? Trump's crowd seems imbued as such. 

In another moment we find the short-sightedness of Trump and his sycophant supporters. MSNBC ratings drop? Really? How is that different from celebrating a gas price drop when prices will inevitably go up. Or, celebrating pool numbers when the same pollers could withing weeks report lowered polling numbers.
Did the crowd partake-in  "Lock-her-up" with the reality of legal action against Trump's cabal? It seems his crowds are either reacting to crowd ques from Trump's handler's or they use "lock-her-up" as if at a football game doing the "wave". I suspect the latter as the aforementioned would surely draw attention from the media.
Remember this?

Now take a look and read about the reality of Trump current rally Lock-her-up chants as nothing more than an audience wave.

Well, actually sometimes the wave fails to develop ad it looks like this.


But at Trump rallies with people who very well may attend rallies to exercise their opportunity to chant "lock-her-up". The moments of chanting is comparable to this.

If you have a few minutes the psychology of the wave is an interesting study in human behavior.  A behavior with roots back to 1981 and captured via this quote from former sportscaster Joe Garagiola. (link)
“Crescendo rising here. It’s amazing, I’ve never seen anything like this…”
-Sportscaster Joe Garagiola describing the first documented appearance of a "stadium wave" at the Oakland Alameda Coliseum on October 15, 1981.
Grab that Red MAGA cap and partake in a ritual chant. 

Alas, Trump moved to Michelle Obama. We will forego the rightful tendency to post pictures of Trump's arm-candy model prior to their marriage. It would be equally appropriate to post his wife's visit to the View at which she joined in racist birtherism. But, we will pass and simply post the Aaron Ruper tweet.
Huge boos when Trump mentions Michelle Obama 
— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) March 28, 2019
"The wind doesn't always blow."

I will bring the post to an end at this point. You can visit Aaron Rupar's Twitter page via this link

Question. While I recognize Trump's rallies are campaign visits to communities in which he has great support,  I must ask: Is there anything about the Twitter post above you find even remotely respectful, decent or "presidential?" 

Before I close, consider this as you think about our nation.

As Trump's World Turns: Central Park Five, Mocks Dr. Ford; A Reminder To Vote

Image result for trump circus clown

A Day In The Life

Yesterday Trump spent an unusually long time on the White House lawn yielded questions for reporters, and lying. While we have grown to expect lies form Trump, we continue to respond in awe and shock when his words literally contradict the manner in which he lived his past. Remember the Central Park Five; linked, here and here?
Didn't Trump publicly state the FBI could "go anyplace they wished" in their one-week investigation into accusations against his SCOTUS nominee. I wonder what is the number assigned tot hat lie We long ago passed 5,000 lies in 18 months in the Oval Office. Have we reached 6,000 lies yet?
It seems Trump lied about an open investigation of matters related to Kavanaugh There is nothing new there, but consider what comes next.

A US President travels to the pits of social America (the State of Mississippi) and openly mocks Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Kavanaugh's accuser. One the day of Fords Senate Hearing testimony Trump indicated his thought so Ford as a credible person.

Watch your President as he reminds of another inhumane act from the 2016 campaign:

Again Trump reminds rational Americans of the horrors of staying home on election day, and he reminds of a flawed electoral system which ended with Trump taking the Oval Office despite the reality of finishing the election 2.8 million votes behind his opponent. 

It is critical to notice the extent to which irrational Americans find Trump entertaining.  Watch as the crowd roars with approval.  

A President of the United States of America!

If you have a need to read a few words about Trump's Mississippi oozfest, I have linked a New York Magazine piece, here

A Day In The Life. Remember, these are things we know of his day, only the heavens know what acts and manifest he enacted outside of our scrutiny.

Trump Rally: Utter Insanity

A snippet from Trumps Tampa Rally.

 Image may contain: 1 person, smiling

How did the White House Press Secretary address the Food Purchase ID. Forty-four seconds of utter and shameful lying to prop up the pathological lying and carnival barking oratory of an unstable mind.

If you think all of which preceded is farfetched insanity from a small group of deplorables (despite looking as such), check out one supporter who obviously has a prime residence of Trumpenstien.

Of course, last night included the growing exhibition of Trump deplorables harassing cable media other than Fox News.

Trump Rallys Continue To Reveal Trump BrownShirt Behavior

Do you notice anything about the man in the picture below?  He is not exactly the prototype of the American conservative. He is olive skinned and has what some might consider middle eastern Persian features. 

You know what that means to Donald Trump's hordes of bigots: Muslim. Subsequently, the man is uniquely qualified as a potential victim of Amercian bigotry and racism so willingly nurtured and supported by Donald Trump.

Mediaite ran a piece this morning with the young reporter as the central theme of the piece and the unfortunate latest victim of Trump's Third Reich Brown Shirt mentality supporters. 


CBS Reporter: Trump Supporter Asked Me If I Was Taking Pictures for ISIS

A CBS News reporter covering Donald Trump in Reno today tweeted out that one Trump supporter approached him and asked if he was shooting pictures for ISIS.

Sopan Deb recounted the entire conversation and how this man told him, “Be glad that you’re here.”

Here’s what Deb recounted:

Sopan Deb 
@SopanDebA Trump supporter just asked me at Reno event if I was taking pictures for ISIS. When I looked shocked, he said, "yeah, I'm talking to you."1:13 PM - 10 Jan 2016

@SopanDebThe man then repeated the accusation multiple times. I told him, politely, I was with CBS and that what he said was inappropriate.1:14 PM - 10 Jan 2016

Trump Handlers Plant A Black Face In An Event Audience; It Backfires (VIDEO)

AddictingInfo's Vera and the Trump rally insurgent reader

This is what happens when political event handlers grab a black face for VP seating (right behind the candidate) for misleading television audiences. It has been reported the event was noticeably absent of other than white faces. What does a good Trump handler do......?


Woman Brilliantly Protests Trump Rally After Being Seated Behind Him ‘Because She’s Black’ (VIDEO)

AUTHOR NOVEMBER 12, 2015 7:26 PM
Never underestimate the power of a well-timed silent protest. Johari Osayi Idusuyi, a writer and student at Lincoln Land Community College in Springfield, Illinois, recently went viral for her impromptu protest at a Donald Trump rally – and how she did it was truly brilliant.
The 20-year-old woman wasn’t a Trump fan, but was open-minded and willing to give him a chance to change her perception of him. When she arrived at the rally, she and a few friends ended up right behind the GOP candidate in the VIP section. In an interview with Jezebel, Idusuyi says she believed it was mostly because they were black.
“I think we were chosen for obvious reasons. We are minorities and there weren’t a lot of minorities there. He also instructed us to sit in the middle, so we kind of already knew what this was.”
Idusuyi tried to keep an open mind during Trump’s campaign speech, but once he called for protesters to be removed and a Trump supporter was applauded for taking a woman’s Obama hat off her head and throwing it into the audience, Idusuyi changed her mind.
“I thought, ‘That’s bullying, that’s aggressive.’ I don’t think Trump handled it with grace. I thought, ‘Oh, you’re really not empathetic at all.’ That’s when the shift happened.”
It just so happened that Idusuyi had brought the award-winning book “Citizen”with her. Once she noticed that she was on camera behind Trump, she realized she had the perfect way to protest. Written by Claudia Rankine, “Citizen” is a book on everyday racism and microaggressions in America – and you can’t get more anti-Trump than that. Idusuyi decided to read the book in full view, as Trump blabbered on. She explained:
“Why not use the opportunity to promote a great book?”
She thought she’d be making a statement, but she never expected it to go viral. Idusuyi became an internet celebrity after a video showed her telling off an older white man& who angrily asked her to stop reading the book while Trump was speaking. She then puts the book right back in front of her face. Here’s that clip:
According to Idusuyi, the man was bothered that she was reading through the rally, but his spouse was even more furious and refused to leave her alone.
“The woman kept saying, ‘If you don’t want to be here then leave. You didn’t even stand for the Pledge of Allegiance.’ I said, ‘I do want to be here, that’s why I’m here. You don’t know who I am. I’m reading my book because I’m uninterested. Did you not just see what happened? This person disrespects women, minorities, everybody and you’re still supporting him. He’s not saying anything of substance.’”
As you might guess, Idusuyi will not be voting for Trump. She was less than impressed by him and his supporters:
“I came here, yes, to observe a man that I already had low expectations for, but I thought maybe he could change my mind. Maybe it was just a media thing, and I’m judging too fast based on what the media says, and I was wrong — (but) I wasn’t. He was exactly what I expected him to be and his supporters are exactly what I expected them to be.”

MSNBC's Rachel Maddow booked the insurgent reader on her show last night. The interview is a bit discombobulated due to signal lapses and the subjects choice of speech patterns, but nonetheless the live protester reveals tidbits not reported by others.
