Last night — Feb 11 — Trump held a rally in the El Paso Coliseum (capacity 6,500) to kick off his 2020 Presidential campaign. In spite of his claims of 35,000 attending, it was clear to all that the crowd did not quite fill the 6,500-capacity hall.
Let’s check out some of the nasty and bizarre shit that emerged from this spectacle of stupidity.
Trump claims that babies are born; doctors talk to the mother; then, the doctor executes the baby
President Donald Trump alleged that liberals “execute” babies as they come out of their mother’s womb. But it was the details he provided about this baby after it’s born that was a little bizarre.
Trump was referring to Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, who the president thanked for taking the heat off of his White House. ” We should find more guys like this one. He wanted to moonwalk!”
“I like him. He keeps us out of the paper. I like him,” Trump said.
Northam was doing a radio interview where he talked about terminally ill fetuses being born. He said that the child would be born and the mother and doctors would do whatever they could to make the baby comfortable. Conservatives twisted that to mean make the baby comfortable before they killed it. Northam meant before the baby succumbed to the illness.
“The governor stated that he would even allow a newborn baby to come out into the world and wrap the baby and make the baby comfortable,” Trump said. “And then talk to the mother. And talk to the father and then execute the baby. Execute the baby. Incredible.”
“They get punished when they get home.” ??????
President Donald Trump’s rally was constantly interrupted with protesters Monday. It’s unclear how many there were but there were at least four interruptions where Trump paused and pointed out the protesters.
“Where do these people come from? Where do they come from? They go back home to mommy. They get punished when they get home,” Trump said, using an odd phrase.
With sweat forming on his top lip, Trump returned to his typical 2016 and 2018 campaign chants. He told El Paso that the wall was being erected in the middle of the Rio Grande. He also alleged that former rival Hillary Clinton colluded with Russia and lead the crowd in a “lock her up chant.”
Trump mob attacks BBC cameraman
A raving Trump supporter wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat attacked a BBC cameraman during the president’s rally in El Paso.
BBC’s Ron Skeans was recording video of President Donald Trump speaking about immigration when he was knocked off balance by a man in the crowd, who can be seen moments later being restrained by another man wearing a red MAGA hat.
The assailant screams “fuck the media” as he’s pulled away from Skeans, and the crowd begins to chant “let him go” as they become aware of the disturbance.
Skeans later told the BBC that the man, who has not been identified, shoved him hard from his blind side, and the cameraman was not sure what had happened at first.
BBC Washington editor Eleanor Montague, who was at the event with Skeans, tweeted out footage of the incident, which she blamed on the president’s hostile rhetoric.
“The crowd had been whipped up into a frenzy against the media by Trump and other speakers all night,” Montague tweeted.
