“The President remains convinced the racially tinged culture wars he stoked as a candidate in 2016 and throughout his presidency remain a winning strategy, people familiar with his thinking say. As polls now consistently show him trailing former Vice President Joe Biden by double digits, Trump has insisted on attempting to re-create the political formula that helped propel him to the White House.

“To this point, Trump’s instincts as a culture warrior have been proven correct politically. Combine that with his unwillingness to apologize or back down, and it should come as no surprise that he’s sticking to his guns on the monuments, base names and kneeling during the National Anthem,” one outside adviser to the President said. “So, even though this feels like a national moment unlike anything we’ve experienced before, I still wouldn’t bet against his political instincts.”

Clearly he is betting on the country’s deep current of racism.  For Trump, all this ‘Black Lives Matter’ stuff . . . it’s just momentary wind in the trees.  Unlike all his advisors, Trump has an ‘Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler’ and only he knows what the readings are.

You gotta to give it to him a little. One would think that he was going to sign some executive order to fuck with gay and trans somehow after the Civil Right thing, but he was just like fuck it. Score one for progressive Trump, but then again this might also be his olive branch to all minorities in the hopes that he gets some of the black votes back after he was all about thuggish law and order during their slightly-more-arson-than-expected peaceful protests.

Speaking of the slightly-more-arson-than-expected peaceful protests, notice how Trump is stitching the Black Lives Matter marchers to the looters and arsonists.  https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2020/06/18/trump-campaign-runs-ads-with-marking-once-used-by-nazis-designate-political-prisoners/

On the news tonight -  his supporters are already lining up, camped outside the arena in Tulsa   “I just want to see this man speaking,” one woman explained to the reporter.  Is it the eloquence?


eloquence  noun

fluent or persuasive speaking or writing.
“a preacher of great power and eloquence”

He’s going to make her feel very good about her subjective biases. I suppose that’s power; eloquence depends on if mastering barroom braggadocio is considered eloquent.

Here he’s eloquently threatening any protesters at his Tulsa rally - https://www.aol.com/article/news/2020/06/19/president-trump-threatens-any-protesters-at-his-rally-tulsa-is-a-different-scene-than-liberal-cities/24529334/

If he’s re-elected in November I wonder how long it will take him to threaten the NY Times, The Washington Post and other ‘enemies of the people’?  I mean, physically threaten them via a dog whistle to his armed supporters.  How long will it take him to pull federal funding from PBS, NPR . . . and have the ‘windows’ of FRONTLINE broken . . . reporters roughed up or worse?

Will we see civilian Trump supporters with AR-15’s and brown camouflage shirts outside the gates of the arena in Tulsa?  Considering the law of averages, how many of the 20,000 people entering the arena will be carrying the virus?  https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2020/04/01/population-level-coronavirus-is-almost-literally-everywhere/

You mean all his 2A people with their 2A things, who should stand 2A tall all the time. He’s feeling pretty shot gun blasted in his 2A face with all this gay immigration stuff.

I reckon about 80, soon to be about 240.

Many attendees to the Rally have been driving for days to get there. If one of the persons in the car caught it, they will all have it by the time they are back.

What if it was 6,200 Trump faithful entering the arena, not 20,000?  https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/21/politics/trump-rally-tulsa-attendance/index.html

More than just 13,000 empty seats?  https://www.newyorker.com/news/campaign-chronicles/donald-trumps-empty-campaign-rally-in-tulsa?

quote:  “Meanwhile, on Saturday, even before Trump was finished giving his speech, people were sharing clips on social media of maga-clad fans in the audience, yawning as their President rattled on.”  https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4888115/user-clip-vip-yawntrump-tulsa-rally
