Here is the real reason that Trump staged that 4th of July spectacle. A new campaign ad.

That what all of those millions of dollars in taxpayer money was used for yesterday.

You may ask “Wait isn’t this illegal?”

Yes, it is, but who is going to hold him accountable? 

Are you listening, Speaker Pelosi?

BTW this is what it actually looked like on the ground. 

Trump apparently used some footage from a 2008 concert to splice in a larger, non-drenched audience.

    Donald Trump wants to be a dictator. It’s not enough just to laugh at him

    He cages children, he holds a military parade, he muses about being president for life. Yet we fail to see him for what he is

    @waltshaub
    There you have it. A taxpayer- funded campaign ad. Your tax dollars coopted for the benefit of a man whose idea of public service is the public serving him. Tens of millions effectively given to the Trump Campaign. This is what it was all about. This and revenue for his hotel.

    Certainly explains all the barriers, couldn’t have the bubba supporters mess up the audio with their chanting lock her up .

    Let’s see if Senator Udall follows up on this.

    Not only did he scam millions for this charade, but he is off golfing again on our dime.

      What’s sad is ‘he was sent by God’ evangelicals. Oh HELL NO he wasn’t, but whatever as I giggle.

      I’m 75 and I certainly never thought I’d see the day when our system of government was so quickly turned upside down.

    If he gets away with not paying for turning the 4th of July into a campaign ad, the DNC needs to take clips and run an ad how trump is screwing the taxpayer out of OUR MONEY ON OUR HOLIDAY!!!

    Also could someone explain to me, why they were passing out fans with the photo of John Kennedy Jr wearing a MAGA hat? First of all he is dead,second of all John John would never support trump, hope Caroline sues on behalf of his estate.

    Hmm, so not squeegeeing the plexi barrier was subversive genius. Ruined the shot. Love it!!!!!! And the hero who let it be wet.

    So just his paid maga supporters showed up? And now the bill comes. He will not pay it. Trump is famous for not paying unless it’s to porn stars. He sure is paying for those pee tapes. And yes, he is working overtime to be America’s first dictator.

    NBC aired it live. By the time he was speaking the weather was fine and the mall was packed. Most were there to see the fireworks though, not him; just like every other year.

    (Gawd help us as every fucking body slides around on alternate facts.)

    • Anon July 6, 2019 at 12:53 pm

      This is sarcasm, correct? About the mall being packed?

    • Anon July 6, 2019 at 1:11 pm

      SNOPES says it is true there was a large crowd along the mall. They also say the distributed photo was to from the 2008 concert.

    ~IT~ turns out that Trump’s base isn’t in this because they’re bamboozled by fascist theatrics or swept up in Trump’s gaudy, cheap version of glamour. What this has always been about for the Trumpers is making a stand for white supremacy and male domination.

    ” Trump stole from the taxpayers to help his campaign, and in the process created an event that allowed him to jack up the rates at his DC hotel. It was all a con. Trump didn’t get the fawning media coverage that he was hoping for, but he did get a free campaign ad that he and his supporters will use through Election Day 2020.

    Donald Trump and his family view the presidency as an ATM that keeps giving, which is why the Trumps will break any law to remain in the White House.”

    Digital writer Caroline Orr reported that the makers of a solid steel cane are advertising it online as a means of beating up unruly liberals and “Antifa” demonstrators.

    “#Antifa knows to attack where legal gun owners aren’t allowed to carry a gun,” said one ad for “Patriot Canes.” “They know we’re honest, law abiding citizens. They are why we changed the design of our canes to fight back against their solid steel bike locks.”

    “Chief Justice John Roberts argued in a majority ruling that because Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross had provided a “contrived” justification for including the question, falsely citing concern for the Voting Rights Act as his even in light of contradictory evidence, the department would be blocked from moving forward.”

    According to Benjamin J. Rhodes, who served as former deputy national security adviser to Mr. Obama, the current president lashes out at Obama whenever he feels he’s cornered — often making up stories to diminish his predecessor.

    “Trump fed them this kind of red-meat faux patriotism for 47 minutes. The crowd adored the man who delivered his fourth-grade-level history lesson in robotic, singsong cadences that had nothing to do with the words he spoke. His crowd went wild. They loved every smarmy, self-satisfied syllable. They cheered his attempts to stand at attention. Democrats would do well to start paying attention to Trump’s rallies, starting with the one that happened on the Mall in Washington on Thursday. He uses them to road-test his lies. He learned all his best-selling lines in front of crowds just like the one he faced on the Fourth.

    We are not the country we like to think we are. Trump won in 2016. “Make America Great Again” carried the day for him.
    His “basket of deplorables” turned out for him. They can do it again.”

      Trump isn’t the first one to use slogans and music to rally a crowd, St. Ronnie was the first and he was a much better actor than trump, which isn’t saying much considering the B rated films he was in.

  20. Anonymous July 6, 2019 at 9:56 am

    Notice they edited out the part about George Washington closing the airports, when trump said he was working on July 4th, he meant he was doing the voice over for his commercial, then went to play golf on our dime.
