Trump 2020 campaign ruthlessly mocked as a ‘bunch of morons’ for sending fake bricks to Pelosi and Schumer

The Daily Beast’s Gideon Resnick noted that the phony bricks have a number and a call to action about Fentanyl on them — which makes the tactic all the more confusing.

"We have had some huge one-day demonstrations, e.g. March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom (1963); antinuclear march in NYC (1982), and Women's March (2017). We have widespread, simultaneous protests, such as in the days following MLK, Jr.'s assassination (1968)," he explained. "But the two together--very unusual."

The East Texas town has long had a reputation for racism.

Vidor is a small city of about 11,000 people near the Texas Gulf Coast, not too far from the Louisiana border. Despite the fact that Beaumont, a much bigger city just 10 minutes away, is quite integrated, Vidor is not. There are very few blacks there; it's mostly white.
