Trump Will "Rally" In Phoenix Today

Image
Luke Barnett and Brendon Zastrow of Dream City Church

The President has an event scheduled for today in Phoenix, Arizona. He will deliver a speech at Dream City Church, addressing parishioners at the church, as well as members of a group called Students for Trump. This was planned before the Tulsa fiasco this weekend.

Some of the folks helping to organize the event are calling it a rally, but it's not entirely clear that term is apropos. To start, the church seats only 3,000 people, which is a pretty good-sized crowd these days, it would seem, but is pretty small by Trump's past standards. Further, the event is not being organized by the campaign. And consistent with that, you would barely know it was happening if you examined Trump's twitter account or the various websites associated with Trump 2020. Clearly, expectations are going to be kept low this time. If turnout is decent and the photographs of the crowd look good, then probably a series of tweets crowing about a successful rally will be forthcoming.

Whether or not Trump gets some good PR from the event, and whether or not it is successful enough to wash away some of the embarrassment of Tulsa, he still might get to suffer the downside, namely responsibility for another superspreader event. On one hand, Phoenix requires masks for any gathering of this size, and the city's mayor, Kate Gallego (D), urged attendees to abide by that rule. On the other hand, the social pressure not to wear masks will be great. On top of that, two high-ranking officials of the Dream City Church, Senior Pastor Luke Barnett and Chief Operations Officer Brendon Zastrow, have announced that the COVID-19 issue is moot because the church has installed a new air-purification system that kills 99.9 percent of coronavirus germs. They have thus solved a problem that has thus far confounded an army of bioligists, virologists, and other researchers. Oh, and the company that makes this air-purification system? It just so happens to be owned by . . . Luke Barnett and Brendon Zastrow.

We'll soon know how many Arizona Trump supporters decide to play some Russian roulette based on social pressure and/or some rather-less-than-peer-reviewed scientific claims. Maybe the score is Air Conditioning 1, Virus 0, but no one is sure, yet. Meanwhile, signs of trouble from Tulsa continue to present themselves. Two more Trump campaign staffers who worked in Tulsa have tested positive for COVID-19 (bringing the total to 8), and so too have two Secret Service agents. It's probably safe to guess they won't be the last.

It's only 15h30 and there's been 2091 deaths so far today in USA caused by COVID-19

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/us/

IF YOU EVER NEED A PROOF THAT COVID-19 IS STILL GOING STRONG IN USA NO MATTER WHAT TRUMP SAYS, YOU HAVE IT

IF YOU EVER NEED A PROOF THAT TRUMP IS AN INCOMPETENT ASSHOLE ASKING TO STOP TESTINGS, YOU HAVE IT

IF YOU EVER NEED A PROOF THAT TRUMP SUPPORTERS ARE A BUNCH OF STUPID FOLKS, YOU HAVE IT

Sorry Pedro !

^^^I must agree Mig, well I can accept a difference of opinion on political matters, when it comes to science that has every bit of data around you need...you must not be able to handle an 8th grade science problem if you down play the reality of Covid-19 or don't wear a mask... :idea:

In a normal democratic country, I would say that we're witnessing the downfall of Trump.
I refrain from saying that for 2 reasons:
1 - The Electoral College allows a perfect cretin to be President when he didn't get the majority vote, making USA NOT a normal
democratic country.
2 - Never underestimate mass stupidity. It may happen anytime, anywhere on Earth. Emotions can get the best of reasons sometime.

Other than that, sure, I rejoice to see Trump going down.
Not because he pretends to be a Republican (we know now he's not really) but because he's a stupid leader
with too much power in his hands and it has proved to be dangerous (COVID-19) and could be, in the long run,
more dangerous given time (a major conflict).

I pity the fools who still hang up to that guy.

I've written an encyclopedia entry for Trump, one of them one volume encyclopedias they used to sell when we still used books for that kind of stuff:

Donald Trump, 1946-2021, 45th President of the United States

Image

Donald Trump was a reality TV-host and billionaire, who also had a line of failing casinos. His real estate business was run by professionals, Trump was rarely involved in anything but meeting leaders of countries and getting his name in big letters on the hotel. He was basically a brand, sold to anyone he cared to be involved with.

Trump took it upon himself to destroy the legacy of Barack Obama, including the healthcare plan still in use by tens of millions who do not have work related insurance. Trump resented a black man using presidential powers and making a fool of Trump at a correspondents' dinner. Trump had to run for president.

So it was that he also landed in the campaign when a lot of white working class folks had lost their factory and mining jobs. Catching just 100 000 of these people in the right states, Trump convinced them that foreigners, Democrats and the Deep State were at fault. It was a bad time for many, so someone had to be at fault! Trump then captured enough votes in the antiquated electoral college to win the election, as it was. Perhaps Russia and an army of internet trolls helped.

Trump proceeded to go directly into his America First program. He fashioned himself an autocrat. We will build a wall with Mexico. Trump did not realize how the federal government works, or even the presidency. He also did not want it to work, as far as government agencies go. They merely slow down enterprise and give money away to...liberals and the poor. But fortunately for us he failed in many ambitious projects, as he did not work well with congress and really did not understand funding. At first, he seemed to operate only with executive orders, blocking visas from foreigners, in a list of countries that seemed to all be Muslim countries. Except of course Saudi Arabia. We all had to witness a strange ritual of Trump and Saudi royalty with a strange glowing globe. It was a lesson to us all in just how wide the powers of a US president are. Obama tried some of the same, with severe criticism from the right.

Image

The foreigners actually continued to come. Some had lived in Europe before. It turns out we do not have enough college educated people from the US in many fields, from Silicon Valley to the health care industry to engineers to doctors.

Congress two years later changed enough to slow him down even more. Through his four years, Trump did learn that the court system was as difficult for him now as it was when he was just a billionaire. Careful manipulation of courts would need to be put in. "Get me someone who can fix this." It did not help any that Trump attempted to make deals with foreign governments with no state department team involved. Some of these deals benefited Trump politically and personally and were seen as illegal by many.

Trump decided foreign countries were bad for America, aside from Russia. Also, international agencies were bad. He liked to pull out of everything and cancel anything that Obama signed. He pulled out of climate agreements, WHO and would have destroyed NATO in his second term.

The simple-minded folk who voted for him ( see Just How Stupid Are We? by Rick Shenkman) were in the dark for most of the four years of Trump's only term, never realizing they paid for tariffs Trump placed on goods from China that they buy at Wal Mart. Another thing that Trump was very successful at was interpreting science to his "base." They had been trained by Foxnews and Alex Jones to be suspicious of science. Trump was just the man to explain that coronavirus was nothing really bad, it's like the flu. And you don't have to believe in global warming anymore. Because it's still cold in the winter.

Trump is telling the same stories about Democrats (abortion, Biden etc.) for the fifth year in a row. They still pile in to listen to him. Even with coronavirus in the arenas. Just seconds ago he rambled on to talk about Brazil and the virus and going "herd" (herd immunity) after rambling about stock markets. And Obama is still "giving Iran 150 billion dollars." It was the Iranians' own money frozen in bank accounts.

Almost a year of the Trump "presidency" was wasted chasing real or concocted evidence in Ukraine against Joe Biden and his son Hunter. He was impeached by the House for the attempted quid pro quo (holding off aid to Ukraine for weeks).

Trump was briefly shaken by this disloyalty by his own congress, but finally saved by his Senate where red states still hold power. And things that he failed at always nagged him, even after the bluster in his Tweets about "I won." So he would sick his most skillful and also most crooked Attorney General Bill Barr on assorted enemies, firing officials and judges left and right. Barr never acted for the US, he was always just Trump's survival machine. Trump also had many loose ends in his private matters. The story for four years was that a sitting president could not be taken to court.

Fortunately for the US, the voters drawn to Trump in 2016 and 2018 were not as dominant in 2020 by election time. Black Live Matter protests brought in a lot of black and Democrats voters who somehow forgot to vote in 2016. And the Trump followers did not care for any Republicans after him trying to cash in on this populist movement. They failed to act dumb and regular while speaking, and appeared pretty much like the politicians that they were.

In November we were done with Trump, though he actually caused a lot of trouble for months after. But he was a one time phenomenon, he was not coming back.

In June of 2021 Trump choked on a chicken nugget at his Mar-a-Lago resort. Secret service failed to dislodge it, when called in to check on him 20 minutes later. He is buried at Mar-a-Lago.

Funny.
I like the "he was a one time phenomenon".
It could be added that he served WorldWide as the "What not to do" perfect example.
And that Pedro and DB cried till they became a pool of bubbles and tears.
No one cared about them. . .
So the Story goes
