This is disturbing. He's trashing 'liberal' areas only.

There are major areas in conservative states that have poverty, crime issues -- not one mention.

Excuse me, are you suggesting that Trump cannot personally cure aids and cancer? You must be a socialist Demonrat. Trump is the most successful carbon based life form in existence. He can do ANYTHING. How dare you suggest otherwise. How dare you. Get the hell out of this country, traitor.

I didn't watch the speech, so I don't think I should comment. I do find it funny that it's "news" that he stayed away from racial comments, and even his supporters are so proud he stayed on script, and kept cool in the face of protest. I guess that is a new high-point for him....
I didn't see a whole lot of minorities in his crowd. Perhaps all the Black Americans were working (as I'm sure he reminded the crowd that AA unemployment is at an all-time low, thanks to him) and didn't have time to provide adulation to your heinous King Trump. I didn't see a lot of Hispanics. I guess Cincinnati doesn't have many Hispanics - or they were fearful that they'd get beat up or handcuffed by ICE if they showed up?

I didn't watch either, just reviewed the post-mortem online and posts here provided by the Trumpkins (Bumpkins for Trump).

Seen one, seen them all, imo. He has the same shtick. WWE-Mussolini type of appearance.

It is not possible for the master to do wrong.

Ever.

Period.

Amen.
Not a series of lies, just a series of "fact checking" fake news.
Trump did sign the VA accountability act, so why wouldn't he take credit for it?

And another related bill VA mission act, related to VA choice:

Meh, who cares? It's like QAnon and Alex Jones - unless there's something extraordinarily offensive, no one pays attention to those except those already converted.

Trump said he passed a private-sector health care program, Veterans Choice, after failed attempts by past presidents for the last “40 years.” That’s not true. The Choice program, which allows veterans to see doctors outside the government-run VA system at taxpayer expense, was first passed in 2014 under President Barack Obama. Trump signed a bill that revamped and consolidated.

But it wasn't his creation - he tweaked it.

Frequently administrations update existing Acts to tweak them -- it is what admins. do. Most of the Presidents don't take credit for the tweaking part.

I guess Trump NEEDS to.

But he most definitely has stated on numerous occasions it took 45 years to get the Act signed -- and that's not true -- Obama got the Choice Act signed.


My question - -if what Trump did was so amazing -- why can't he just say what he did - -why does he lie about it?

Trump never said he passed the original bill, nor did he ever refer to the name of the original bill. He did make veterans choice from the veteran's access to care act permanent, instead of a temporary measure, and greatly expanded the scope of the program, among other tweaks and he did pass a law called colloquially as "VA Accountability". The original program was started under Obama, but it was very limited in scope and it was a temporary measure, not a permanent program. The original program also originated with the Republicans and eventually got bipartisan support.

You believing that he lied isn't the same thing as, he lied. You have several times in this topic made statements as fact which as it turns out were things that Trump didn't say. The previous post is prime example.

Hope this clears it up for you since you asked.

And yes he is amazing. If he wasn't, 120,000 people wouldn't have tried to go to that event. The venue was beyond full. He's packing them in in even greater numbers than 2016. Unprecedented for a President running for 2nd term.

The crowd size argument is totally ridiculous.. 16,000 people fill up an NBA arena for home games doesn't mean that more than half the town or area gives a rats &** about the NBA team, especially if they are playing mediocre or poorly. If all you have to brag about is rallies you may as well start bragging about attendance of your local NFL team.. (oh thats right the NFL is bad now, kneeling players)

Trump signed VA Acts that continue the work started in the Obama administration -- OBAMA for the win.

That's the facts.

Trump thinks that the lottery system is a country putting in names of citizens and then when they get chosen they get right in.

Be worried people.

He believes tariffs are a tax on China.

You can't deny he says those things.
You can't deny he is misinformed, lying, making !@#$ up.
