Trump Stirs Up more Violence
Trump warns of violence if GOP loses midterms
President Donald Trump warned there will be "violence" if the Republicans lose their majority in Congress as a result of the 2018 midterms, in a recording now heard by CNN.
Trump warned of violence and rigged elections if he lost the presidential election in 2016.
Now he's warning of violence again if the Democrats win the mid-terms.
Just this past week, Trump said he likes people who "body-slam journalists." That's inciting violence.
Trump is blaming the media for the violence that HE incites in his mob rallies.
Trump is a morally diseased, demagogue, who has incited violence at all his bund rallies by tolerating his mobs' screaming "LOCK HER UP!" and by calling America's media "enemies of the people."
All that we are seeing lies squarely on the shoulders of this cowardly, weak, morally diseased man-child.
VOTE BLUE NOVEMBER. SEND THIS S.O.B. A MESSAGE!
Gail Collins, NYTimes:
Donald Trump was on the road trying to rev up the country against a pitiful caravan of poor people struggling through Mexico. Meanwhile, there was a spate of bombing attempts directed at some of the president’s regular tirade targets, from Hillary Clinton to George Soros to CNN. The F.B.I. is working on the bombs. Trump has urged the country to unify, to which the country presumably replied, “Now you tell us?”
At his rally in Wisconsin on Wednesday night, Trump did have some early words for peace and harmony. Then he demanded that the media “set a civil tone and to stop the endless hostility and constant negative and often time false attacks.” You would think that for at least one evening he’d just mention the importance of a free press. Or even suggest that, say, body-slamming reporters is a bad thing. This is getting scarier and scarier.
The president has been on a rally marathon in which he alternates between saying things that are meant to whip his audience into rage and things that are just wildly egocentric and imaginary. He’ll never improve. All we can do is hope he sticks to his less dangerous form of awfulness."
