Trump Aides Use Rallies To Keep Him from Melting Down

Good Day World!

Two rallies in two days.

Trump's aides are pulling rabbits out of hats to keep Trump entertained so he doesn't have a complete meltdown. 

The first rally in Minnesota was the longest one Trump's had since coming into office. It also bore the distinction of being his most profane yet, in a 104 minute rant.  

Meanwhile...

While more evidence of dirty dealing with the Ukraine unfolds daily, Trump played "Wag the Dog" and gave Turkey the okay to invade Northern Syria, to the dismay of our partners the Kurds.

On rallies:

I suspect there's going to be a lot more rallies in the days and weeks ahead. Trump's minions know he's barely clinging to sanity while trying to deal with the assault of an impeachment inquiry that's moving swiftly. 

The rallies serve two purposes. 

One, they put Trump in an alternate universe where he's so popular he could shoot someone on 5th Avenue in New York and no one cares. And his lies get cheers!

Two, the rallies are a distraction from the bad news coming out, providing the right wing media with meat to chew on in these troubled times. Nothing like videos with cheering supporters.

But...

According to a collection of major polls Trump is losing supporters and independents rapidly. 

The Trump administration - especially the big players like AG Barr and Pompeo - are barely treading water in a turbulent sea of criminal evidence.

It's getting harder every day for Republican lawmakers to support Trump as more evidence of his corruption becomes public knowledge.

The White House messaging department is non-existent. Trump took that job over, and is doing a poor job of defending himself by asking other nations to investigate his political rival Joe Biden.



The only place Trump is going to hear shouts of adulation in the future are at his rallies. The White House is no longer a safe place for our moron-in-charge.

Related: Trump makes at least 12 false claims at his longest rally.

Thought for the day: Trump in prison with African-Americans, and Hispanics, when the lights go out at night. 

Time for me to walk on down the road....
