On Friday, Trump exercised his right to free speech.
Seeking to win over California’s Republican voters, he announced in the second Trump administration:
“We will immediately stop all of the pillaging and theft. Very simply…if you rob a store, you can fully expect to be shot as you are leaving that store. Shot!”
The crowd loved it and began to chant his name.
This should terrify every law-abiding American. Trump's cultists are too stupid to understand what he is selling them. They chanted his name like a mob of drugged animals.
Shoot on sight anyone looting? This is exactly how authoritarian regimes handle problems they don't know how to handle. Shoot on sight!
Trump feels perfectly free to tell his blood-thirsty cultists he will kill anyone looting without due process, as is guaranteed in our Constitution. He said it; they cheered.
I remember when Republicans were enraged because they said President Obama was going to fundamentally change America.
What the hell do they think Trump has done?
Americans CHEERED HIM WHEN HE SAID HE'D SHOOT AMERICANS ON SIGHT! WITHOUT DUE PROCESS.
Trump is anti-democracy, anti-American. And he's already fundamentally changing America.
When Americans cheer shooting other Americans on sight, that is a signal that we've lost our way.
And we are fundamentally changed by the evil that is Trump.

Everything about Trump is fake. It's astounding that his cultists refuse to see him for the ugly fraud that he has always been and still is.
Trump's "union" visit:
UAW president Shawn Fain said, “I find it odd he’s going to go to a non-union business to talk to union workers. I don’t think he gets it.”
Craig Mauger of the Detroit News noted that one woman holding a “union members for Trump” sign acknowledged she wasn’t a union member, while a man with a sign that said “auto workers for Trump” said he wasn’t an autoworker. The plant where Trump was speaking employs about 150 people, but 400–500 Trump supporters were there for his speech.
The Trump-ordered fake impeachment inquiry hearings on President Biden:
"Frustration in the GOP over 1st impeachment hearing, as the GOP witnesses undercut their narrative and say no evidence of crimes.
“Picking witnesses that refute House Republicans' arguments for impeachment is mind blowing. This is an unmitigated disaster," said senior Republican aide.

"The first problem with it is that the cult of Trumpism demands absolute fealty. One moment of honest dissent, and you are cast from the ranks.
The second problem is that loyalty to Trump is ultimately enforced by the threat of violence. There were Republicans who chose not to vote yes on impeachment or conviction...because they didn’t want potential assassins coming after them or their families." from "Mitt Romney Has Given Us a Gift" 9/14/23

A New York judge ruled on Tuesday that Donald J. Trump persistently committed fraud by inflating the value of his assets, and stripped the former president of control over some of his signature New York properties.
"The decision by Justice Arthur F. Engoron is a major victory for Attorney General Letitia James in her lawsuit against Mr. Trump, effectively deciding that no trial was needed to determine that he had fraudulently secured favorable terms on loans and insurance deals.
Ms. James has argued that Mr. Trump inflated the value of his properties by as much as $2.2 billion and is seeking a penalty of about $250 million in a trial scheduled to begin as early as Monday."
The current Republican/Trumpublican Party wants TRUMP, who repeatedly cheated and defrauded people, is currently under 91 felony indictments, and was found liable for raping a woman, to lead this country and represent America and American values!
I'm not kidding. That's how twistedly sick 30 to 35% of the American voting public is.
Anyone who still supports this corrupt malignant narcissist has to have more than the proverbial screw loose.
Career military men who've honorably served their country have this to say about Trump:
Trump has 91 felony counts against him, was found, by a judge, to have persistently committed fraud, was found liable, by a judge, for raping a woman, incited an insurrection against the United States of America, and was the first POTUS to break the American tradition of a peaceful transfer of power (there's much, much more, but I haven't the time right now to list them all).
And the former Republican Party wants Trump to represent them and their values as well as represent our country and its values to the rest of the world.
Can someone explain this madness to me?
