‘A sh*tshow of the highest order’: Twitter was NOT having Trump’s racist rally in Phoenix last night

Did you watch Donald Trump’s speech from Phoenix last night? No? That’s OK. You didn’t miss much.

Per usual, Trump spent much of his time attacking the “fake news” media and at one point accused CNN of shutting off its live feed (it didn’t). He also defended his response to the white supremacy rally in Charlottesville, which he blamed on “both sides,” and spent several minutes insisting he’s not racist. Oh, and he took aim at John McCain, who is currently undergoing treatment for brain cancer, for voting against the GOP’s ObamaCare repeal bill.

It was your typical unhinged, embarrassing, unscripted Trump hate speech. The only thing that made it semi-interesting were the live tweets.

Check out what people were saying…

    Well, I think the tweets basically sums up this comment section:)

    Oh boy! What will our witty leader come up with next. Tune in next time, when the country goes up in flames.

  • KaiserVonScheiss

    In other words he didn’t actually say anything racist. Because if he did, you would have mentioned it.

    Basically racism means whatever leftists want it to mean. It’s as if the word has no real meaning.

      You do realize Queerty is fake news, right? It’s actually good that the dem party keep talking about racism that does not exist so they’d keep losing election. Can’t wait for the midterm election. The dem party will be obliterated. Good riddance. Thanks, Queerty!!!!

      Regardless of what Trump does or doesn’t do, they’ll continue to command everyone see him as a racist, fascist, misogynist, Nazi, white supremacist, Islamaphobe, homophobe, xenophobe . . . and the irony is that these buzzwords have been flung around so frequently and recklessly that their meaning has evaporated to the point where it’s little more than the equivalent of white noise coming from tantruming children.

    Eventually his head will explode from more and more people not liking him. That means more to him than this country, its people, the flag, the military, his wife, his kids. He has spent more time whining about who doesn’t like him or agrees with him than doing presidential stuff. And it’s escalating.

    • leobaga

      You are really out of touch. You do realize the dem party is dead, right? They are powerless and irrelevant.

      Trump keeps attacking senators from his own party for not liking him enough – McCain, Heller, Flake, even the majority leader won’t speak to him. It’s almost as if Trump wants a Democratic senate.

      @HeywoodJablowme

      Because those senators are neocons, losers, and RINOs. I rather have a President who sides with country over party.

      No one cares what John McCain or Mitch McConnell think. No one cares what Nancy Pelosi thinks. They are establishment politicians who do not have your interests, my interests, or your neighbors’ interests in mind.

      Republicans had years to prepare a solution for Obamacare and are failing in that regard. I see no problem with President Trump calling them out on this. Republican voters want them to actually do something.

      The American people elected Trump because we’re sick of government politicians not looking out for the interests of the American people. If the public wanted an establishment politician, they would’ve elected one. You seem a similar movement on the other side of the political spectrum with the Bernie Sanders movement – problem being that the people he attracted simply couldn’t motivate themselves to vote because they were too busy destroying property and protesting Trump rallies. Yet the movements are the same of people getting tired of Washington and wanting fresh people and ideas in that environment.

      If you disagree, look at the disapproval ratings for government. They have a 9% approval rating from voters, just lower than the approval rating of mainstream media.

      Your comment shows that you value party over ideals

    • Brody

      BGB –
      His approval ratings are up.
      Democrats’ ratings are in the crapper.

      Heywood –
      It’s not “like he wants a Democratic senate,” it’s that he wants to honor the wishes of the people who elected him, not the congress who is acting like the elitist snots they are (or, in McCain’s case, a vengeful prick with a personal vendetta).

      @mhoffman953: To focus on the example of the failed Obamacare repeal:

      Trump held a ridiculous celebration when the House voted to “repeal & replace” Obamacare, then a few weeks later Trump criticized that very same version of the bill as “mean”! (Which it was. And he’s certainly an authority on “mean,” I’ll grant that.)

      Trump has no understanding of the governmental process. He keeps going on & on & on & on & on about how if only the Senate got rid of the filibuster they’d pass the repeal. Totally irrelevant! The repeal was a simple majority vote and it couldn’t even get that.

      There was no Republican agreement on Obamacare – unless you count keeping Democrats entirely out of the process, lol. There’s a split between the R purists who think gov’t shouldn’t be involved at all, and the R pragmatists who don’t want to throw millions of people off insurance entirely and essentially just want to improve the system. Turned out there was no way to reconcile these two factions. Trump veered wildly between the two sides without displaying any actual comprehension of either of them. So much for “country over party,” he just wanted a personal “win.” Now he either ignores all this (and blames the whole thing, illogically, on McConnell) or else he literally does not understand anything that happened.

    Here’s the really scary thing… If you compare Trump’s rallies with Hitler’s rallies, it’s not hard to see that Hitler was infinitely more sophisticated. A better speaker, more coherent, and much, much less scary looking. And yet Trump’s dopey acolytes are every bit as convinced and enthusiastic, even as he’s spewing nonsense and hate. He could easily start outlining a Final Solution and they’d all cheer. History has been pretty harsh in its judgement of Germans in the 1930s and 1940s. I don’t expect Trump supporters will come off much better.

    Trump is becoming increasingly unhinged.

    • Bob LaBlah

      I’m willing to bet the Joint Chiefs of Staff have told all commanders worldwide not to obey orders coming from the White House. His intentions is to leave the country unstable if he is removed from power. Its too hard to see any other strategy coming from his twisted mind.

    • Heywood Jablowme

      @Bob LaBlah: Agree!

      Any “order” coming from the White House is likely to be just a tweet anyway, and Trump is apparently too stupid to realize that tweets don’t count.

    Trump – Making America great again

  • GayEGO

    Trump is simply talking and listening to himself because he likes what he says, regardless of what his advisors, Americans, news media says about him. He is a loser, a word he hates.
