I Listened to All Six Trump Rallies
in October. You Should, Too

The New Yorker, by Susan B. Glasser

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 10/12/2018 8:35:53 AM

From the start of the Trump Presidency, many Beltway wise men, and more than a few of Donald Trump’s own advisers, said, Don’t pay attention to the tweets; forget the overheated language and the alarming one-liners coming out of Trump’s constant campaign-style rallies. Pay attention to the policy. They repeated this even after Trump fired his White House chief of staff and Secretary of State on Twitter, and started making policy announcements to his followers that his advisers didn’t know about. They are still, essentially, telling us to disregard what the President says. On T

Susie, you want some cheese with your whine?

This article is a liberal rant about why she thinks Trump should be unpopular and how Trump repeats himself at rallies while telling "lies". And that news networks don´t televise him anymore (including Fox) but they should because he keeps telling "lies". And she really hates his tweeting. Does she hate the Hollywood tweeters?

Another NYer who doesn´t get Trump or those of us who think he´s doing a great job. Ms. Glasser needs a pacifier.

Love Trump rallies! Love the crowds! Love to hear libs whine!

MAGA!!! KAG!!! Keep on keeping on PDT!

FTA: The problem is that there are so many outrages, we are in danger of ignoring them, (SNIP) The torrent of Trump’s words is exhausting, contradictory, annoying, and more than occasionally amusing, and it’s fair to ask what some of it amounts to.

Doesn´t even consider that broadcasting all Trump´s speech might actually increase his appeal...

Words mean so much more than deeds to the left and to NeverTrumps. In fact they get wrapped around the axel over words as does Susan Glasser here. Obama got that... Had a ton of pretty works for Dems. Deeds, Red Lines, etc...Not so much
Give me deeds every time as PDJT does so well.

Repeating? No! A band would never do a concert tour by playing the same songs over and over. Or actors repeating the same lines... Lady, its the first time tens of thousand of people get to hear those lines, (since you won´t broadcast them). One reporter has been paid to hear it 5 times, so she thinks they should produce a new rally just for her. She´s so very important... to herself.

Redundancy?? No. Staying “on message” is THE key to every successful national marketing campaign ever. To whit: when was the last time ANYone outside of retired academics in New York, LA, SF, or Chicago read one of those rambling 30,000 word political hit jobs in the New Yorker or NYT that start out with a five page personal anecdote? I’m going to guess never.

Article put me nn mind of the old strategy:

"There are those who know and those who don´t know and there is no point in talking to those who know because they already know and no point in talking to those who don´t know because they will never know."

Deplorables already know. Liberals don´t know and are too close minded and ignorant to ever know. And I guess never-Trumpers just can´t figure it out since it´s not in their playbook.

While at the rallies Trump is just being a politician.

Trump’s policies regarding the economy and jobs that benefit all Americans are sure a lot better than Obama’s hope and change policies that in the end did not leave Americans better off when they ended then when Obama assumed office, but instead just ended up dividing the country.

Thursday on MSNBC’s “Live,” Harvard Law professor Laurence Tribe said President Donald Trump removing Attorney General Jeff Sessions and appointing Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general was a “slow motion constitutional crisis.” When asked why he believes the appointment of Whittaker is illegal, Tribe said, “The fundamental reason is the U.S. Constitution in Article 2, Section 2, Clause 2 makes it absolutely clear that a principal officer of the United States, that is somebody who exercises enough power so he’s answerable only to the president,

With his investiture ceremony Thursday, Brett Kavanaugh is finally, formally Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. But the fight over his nomination goes on. The battle is not being fought by Democratic dead-enders who cannot accept that Kavanaugh won confirmation despite the sexual misconduct allegations against him. Instead, the fight is being led by Sen. Charles Grassley, the Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, who is still angry at the way those unverified and in some cases evidence-free allegations sidetracked his committee´s work, and nearly the nomination itself.

U.S. stocks soared with the Dow Jones Industrial Average jumping 545 points, moving above the 26,000 level for the first time in a month. Investors celebrated the outcome of the midterm elections that had the Democrats taking back the house and the Republicans maintaining hold of the Senate. A "best case scenario" for U.S. equities, according to several strategists. All three major U.S. averages jumped a healthy 2 percent plus.

SAN FRANCISCO – Acting on a tip from law enforcement, Facebook has removed more than 100 accounts – 30 on Facebook, 85 on Instagram – engaging in coordinated activity in French, English and Russian, raising the possibility that foreign actors are attempting to meddle on the eve of the U.S. midterm elections.

A talking point has taken hold in the final hours of midterm election campaigning. The economy is booming, the story goes, but President Trump won´t talk about it at his massive rallies, preferring instead to dwell on illegal immigration, the caravan, and "fear." Republicans, locked in tough re-election races, are tearing their hair out, panicked, at Trump´s refusal to emphasize the nation´s economic progress, which is their strongest campaign pitch. The journalists and other political types who are repeating the talkin

House Speaker Paul Ryan got President Donald Trump on the phone Sunday for one final plea on behalf of anxious Republicans: Please, please talk up the booming economy in the final hours before Election Day. But Trump, unsurprisingly, had another issue on his mind. He boasted to Ryan that his focus on immigration has fired up the base, according to a source familiar with the call. Two days out from an expected Democratic takeover of the House, Republicans focused on the chamber are profoundly worried that

Dominic Chacon, a Field Manager for the O’Rourke campaign in El Paso, Texas, expressed his concern in getting supplies to the caravan migrants. “I’m going to go get some food right now, like just some stuff to drop off, cause they need food and blankets,” said Chacon. “Do you know of anybody that has blankets and s**t?” We got permission to give them some of

A press conference intended to publicize sexual assault claims against special counsel Robert Mueller collapsed in spectacular fashion on Thursday, after the pro-Trump operatives behind the event failed to demonstrate a grasp of even basic details about their accuser or explain why they had repeatedly lied about their project. Mueller has asked the FBI to investigate the effort from publicity-hungry Washington lobbyist Jack Burkman and pro-Trump Twitter personality Jacob Wohl, which has been dogged by accusations

We have an illegal alien horde approaching our southern border. No, we have multiple hordes approaching the border. With local police in Mexico unable to stop them, the closest caravan is 1,000 miles away from the border. The Trump administration has decided to deploy thousands of troops in hopes of preventing scores of illegal aliens from flooding into the country. It’s been slammed as a 2018 election ploy. For Secretary of Defense James Mattis, this isn’t a stunt. Yesterday, he shot down a reporter who made that insinuation during a presser with South Korea’s defense minister (via Fox News):

Pauline Kael, movie critic for The New Yorker, famously commented: “I live in a rather special world. I only know one person who voted for Nixon. Where they are I don’t know. They’re outside my ken. But sometimes when I’m in a theater I can feel them.” Kael’s isolation was profound. When her observation first appeared in print, Richard Nixon had just carried 49 states. Members of the American aristocracy—the so-called “one-percenters”—live in a different world from that of regular, working-class, and small-business-class Americans.

It has been speculated that Mitt Romney’s Utah Senate seat could serve as a prelude to another Presidential run. In the most ambitious version of events, he could even challenge Donald Trump in the 2020 primaries, newly legitimized and augmented by his actions in the Capitol Building. This would allow moderate Republicans to reclaim their party’s mantle and unroot alt-right influences. But would Romney do it? His willingness to unequivocally challenge Trump could be seen either as a pro or con by Republicans, depending on their opinions of the sitting president.

A top elections official in Florida who endured national humiliation after missing a midterms recount deadline by two minutes has told the Guardian that racism is “probably” a factor in the backlash against her.

Democrat Stacey Abrams ended her bid to be Georgia governor late Friday in a speech which she said was not a ´concession´ but an acknowledgment that she cannot win. She said Brian Kemp, the Republican candidate, would win the vote count which was due to be certified at 5 p.m., just as she made the speech. But she ended her bid to be the nation´s first black female governor defiantly saying that she would be suing in federal court over the election´s ´gross mismanagement´, taking a bitter election with claims of racist voter suppression into a new arena.

Broward County’s ballot recount hit yet another snag Saturday with 2,040 ballots lost or misplaced. The county’s eternally beleaguered Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes said they were either misplaced, misfiled or mixed in with another stack. One thing she said she was sure of was that the ballots were still in the building. “The ballots are in this building. There would be nowhere else for them to be,” Snipes said. “The ballots are in the building.

To look back at the moment John Kerry entered US public life, addressing the Senate foreign relations committee on 22 April 1971, is to be struck by many things. There are the famous words, of course: “How do you ask a man to be the last man to die in Vietnam? How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?” There is the shock of dark, Beatles-inspired hair, the distinctly British-tinged accent. Above all, there is the self-possession.

Championing the cause of the poor, Pope Francis on Sunday lamented that "the wealthy few" enjoy what, "in justice, belongs to all" and said Christians cannot remain indifferent to the growing cries of the exploited and the indigent, including migrants. Francis invited about 6,000 poor people as well as some of the volunteers who help them to the splendor of St. Peter´s Basilica where he celebrated Mass on a day the Catholic Church dedicates to the needy. Later, he sat down with 1,500 of the indigent for a lunch of lasagna, chicken, mashed potatoes and tiramisu in a Vatican auditorium.
