As President Donald Trump took the stage in Orlando, Florida on Tuesday to officially launch his 2020 campaign for re-election, numerous people all over social media expressed their thoughts on the matter.
Predictably, Trump had his fair share of online supporters cheering him on and wishing him luck defeating the evil liberals and “Floppy Joe” Biden — a new nickname Trump coined that joins the ranks of such other juvenile insults as “Sleepy Joe,” “SleepyCreepy Joe,” “Crazy Joe Biden,” “Swampman Joe Biden,” and “1 Percent Joe.”
But at the same time, plenty of commentators noted some of the rally’s more lacking features — as well as the president’s own shortcomings as a leader and as a candidate.
Here are just a few of the opinions that people had to offer about Trump’s rally:
Trump running down a list of accomplishments… noticeably absent, anything on immigration #TrumpOrlandoRally

Took almost a half hour to get to “Build the Wall”. Possibly because it hasn’t been built and Mexico hasn’t paid for it. #TrumpOrlandoRally

Trump referring to Hillary Clinton’s emails from the 2016 presidential race during his 2020 re-election rally.
Clinton is not running as a Democratic candidate in 2020.

‘Belligerent from the get-go’: Dem senator gives blow-by-blow account of Trump’s meltdown on Pelosi
Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) gave a detailed account of the emotional meltdown that President Donald Trump had with congressional Democrats at the White House on Wednesday.
Appearing on CNN Thursday morning, Menendez broke down how Trump started raging at Democrats from the second he entered the room.
"The meeting started off with the president walking in and slamming down his files on the table," Menendez said. "It was belligerent from the get-go... you have the president of the United States, who is supposed to bring our country together, particularly in times of challenges, [calling] the Speaker a third-rate politician."
Grieving British parents react on CNN to seeing Trump’s defense of woman who killed their son
On CNN Thursday, grieving British parents Tim Dunn and Charlotte Charles were shown footage of how President Donald Trump reacted to the motor vehicle death of their teenage son Harry at the hands of American diplomatic wife Anne Sacoolas.
Trump has refused to waive diplomatic immunity for Sacoolas to face punishment for her actions — and tried to defuse the situation by arranging a surprise meeting between Sacoolas and the parents which fortunately never took place.
"Radd, as you watched all of that play out, describe the mood in the room and what you left feeling after that — after that surprise," said anchor Alisyn Camerota.
MSNBC conservative goes down in flames trying to separate Trump’s incompetence from his corruption
MSNBC conservative Noah Rothman met furious pushback when he dismissed poll numbers as insignificant showing a growing majority of Americans support the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
The "Morning Joe" contributor argued that those numbers reflected the president's approval rating and would not exert any pressure on congressional Republicans, but instead place greater pressure on Democrats to make their case for impeachment.
"It's incumbent on Democrats to make this case," Rothman said. "Right now they are presenting a united front because it's still primary season. Once we get into the general (election campaign) there will be more pressure on them to explain their position, but it's incumbent on Democrats to make the case."
