Trump used manipulation and race-baiting four years ago. He’s at it again. We are weary and worried but we shall persist.

Thank you TNWP.

Adding to the previous thread, antifa starting to resemble intifada, if they are throwing bricks and cans and being shot in return. hmm

That picture of Nana and her plaid trolley on the last thread is priceless.

I plan to buy a trolley just like that to take to my next rally. I will wear a plastic rain bonnet like an iron helmet. I will wear a beige raincoat like the shiniest of armour. I shall brandish an extra large size can of SOUP like a grenade!!!

I will strike TERROR into the hearts of all!! Look upon me and FEAR MY MIGHT, all ye who oppose me!

Thank you for the new thread.

Thanks for the new thread. I mostly lurk these days but was thinking back over the 4+ years they've been going. We all knew it was going to be bad, but I don't think anyone realised just how bad.

Still, at least he hasn't nuked anyone. Yet.

AskingQuestionsAllTheTime Wed 02-Sep-20 17:28:29

Oh, hush. Turn your coat inside out and put it back on that way, spin three times clockwise and spit over your left shoulder, quick!

Oooh only 2 months?



Heffalooomia Wed 02-Sep-20 18:01:22

Yay, new thread, settling in for the final act!
I've been following these podcasts and he seems convinced that due to dementia/failing health trump wont make it to the election

Lweji Wed 02-Sep-20 18:14:58

Yes, I can't believe it's 4 years already!

I don't think anyone realised just how bad.

I some ways, I expected worse, but he has been a low energy President. There's still time, I guess.

*BREAKING: Chris Wallace, Steve Scully And Kristen Welker will moderate the 3 Presidential Debate between Trump and Biden.

Get ready to see Trump and his people try and smear all three of these individuals as being "part of the deep state."

I know Chris Wallace... but no idea about the other two, does anyone know anything about them?
Is Trump going to complain about this?

Lweji Wed 02-Sep-20 18:25:25

Kristen Welker works for NBC. And she's black too.

Steve is a C-SPAN senior producer and political editor. Former President of the WH Correspondents' Association. (That little thing which dinners DJT has been missing)
Known for evenhandedness and "the most patient man on TV" (John Oliver).

Roussette Wed 02-Sep-20 18:26:34

Oh deary me... shock
Worth watching...

Roussette Wed 02-Sep-20 18:27:48

Should be interesting... no doubt he wont be happy with Chris Wallace given the interview he gave him !

Lweji Wed 02-Sep-20 18:39:41

The Adventures of the Most Patient Man on Television - Last Week Tonight With John Oliver

We'll know when he says those short "sure", "ahah" and "OK" and ends with "we'll leave it at that" with DJT.
In fact, we could have a drinking game out of it, I suspect.

Lweji Wed 02-Sep-20 18:53:17

The unflappable Kristen Welker.

If she can dodge lighting equipment and continue as if nothing happened, she can deal with Trump.

Not sure he likes her or not. He did congratulate her on her new job, but was it only to avoid answering a question?

Ouch, ouch, OUCH

Lweji Wed 02-Sep-20 19:01:28

Remember this one?

Why weren't the US prepared with more testing (if you sensed a pandemic was coming)?
Blame the media.

I like her.

Roussette Wed 02-Sep-20 19:49:11

Thanks for the clips. Good to watch. Strong people

Chris Wallace, Trump and the elephant grin

lionheart Wed 02-Sep-20 20:28:31

I'd just like to say 'Not all soups ...' and thanks for the new thread North. smile

Cash flow problem (maybe to do with a cash siphoning issue):

'WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump has pulled most of his advertising from TV over the past week, ceding the airwaves to Democratic rival Joe Biden, who is currently outspending him by more than 10-to-1, advertising data shows.

Though Trump has an outsized ability to command national attention, it is unusual for a White House contender to go mostly dark on TV the week after their presidential convention. The election is just over two months away and early voting will begin in September in some states.'
