“A Trump rally has the feel of an all-day pep rally mixed with a megachurch service — except with Trumpism as the religion. The rallies are places where a movement largely defined by grievance can be together, away from opponents — not to mention assertions that Trump lies and is harmful to democracy.

They are places to see that for many Americans, Trumpism isn't just about politics; it's a core part of their identities.

[…]

Trump started speaking in Rome at around 6:00 p.m., about an hour late. He would remain on stage for nearly 2 hours — long even for a Trump rally speech.

As usual, the demonization of undocumented immigrants was a key focus and drew loud cheers.

[…]

Even when his particular wording doesn't make headlines, Trump's speeches are full of false — and sometimes strange — rhetoric about migrants.

[…]

The speech went beyond immigration though, meandering toward many more of trump's grievances — yes, against Joe Biden, but also Fulton County, Ga., prosecutor Fani Willis, N.Y. Attorney General Letitia James, Megyn Kelly and Martha Stewart...to name a few.

In addition, he praised Hungarian autocrat Viktor Orban and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.”



The rallies are places where a movement largely defined by warrantless, baseless grievance can be together, away from facts and the truth, a safe place of rightwing disinformation and lies.

Reading his last paragraph of so-called ''original content,'' I noticed it was just a copypasta of the first paragraph of the article he linked with a couple of words added and changed. My goodness. How original. Heh heh heh...

Where's Will Hunting when you really need a good laugh.

Gosh darned amateurs. They're just chasing a ball around...

Warrantless. baseless grievances? Do you really believe the crap that you copy and paste Clayton?

He's just shit stirring for the sake of shit stirring.

He offered no thoughts of his own regarding the content of the author's NPR piece, and certainly nothing at all regarding why he thinks it needs discussion or anything like that. He's not interested in that. He just wants you to chase the ball that he's throwing out there. It's a repetitive routine with him ad nauseam.

And as long as people keep voluntarily chasing his ball, he's gonna keep throwing them out there for them to chase around like a bunch of trained monkeys.

I've been calling them pep rallies since 2015. He holds them because he likes to riff. It's where he's most comfortable. He knows his target audience and what they respond to. Low intelligence. Easily led. He can lie to them, and they eat it up.
The problem with these rallies are, 1) It's just the same grievance and rage rally after rally. Even the faithful get bored with the same old message, 2) As has been said in the past, the ability to pack a stadium does not equate to electoral popularity.
Just like constantly showing a red map of the US with a lot of empty space in counties....it doesn't add up to election wins.

I have a feeling there are a large amount of "groupies" who follow him around to these little events and pump his numbers up. :)

Quite a few of them actually. I always try and pick up the first 30 minutes or so. They're the most interesting.
I like to hear what he starts off with and then pay attention to the reaction of the crowd that his handlers put behind him.
It's always an interesting study in human behavior. I've noticed after about 20 minutes or so, the majority of the crowd behind him
stops with "yeahs" and "right on" looks....and just start looking bored and disinterested.

Again, even the faithful get bored with hearing the Greatest Hits. :)

another closet trumper....you and jones should go to them together...
 
sure you do jackie....
I do, Candace. That's what happens when you don't bring anything new to the table. People get bored.
After a while, even true believers need something new to hold on to. These pep rallies allow him to freeform riff.
The minute he gets into a situation where he's pinned down about actual policy and has to give a coherent answer, he's immediate exposed as
incompetent and completely out of his element. :)

Well, given the choice between the two..Biden is.
He can at least answer a policy question cogently. It might be a career politician answer, but it at least makes sense and stays on the topic.
Biden doesn't riff. Trump does. And that's where Trump's fitness for the job is called into question.

Trump wouldn't know a policy position if it ran up to him and stole his Quarter Pounder with Cheese. :)
