Trump advisers hoping string of rallies will make voters forget summer of blunders: report

Published

on

On Saturday, Business Insider reported that President Donald Trump is planning to return to his “comfort zone” by holding a long string of rallies in the fall, ramping up his campaign for re-election next year — in part to try to take his and everyone else’s mind off the litany of embarrassments and scandals that occurred over the summer.

This week, according to Politico, a Trump campaign official suggested he will hold rallies in Minnesota, New Mexico, Colorado and Nevada — all states that Trump lost. At these rallies, he is likely to fall back on his typical patterns — bragging about himself and attacking Democrats.

Even by Trump standards, this summer did not go well. He was accused of rape by advice columnist E. Jean Carroll. He escalated tensions with Iran. He lost a major case over the Census citizenship question in front of a conservative Supreme Court. He faced fresh accusations of racism for telling four congresswomen of color to “go back” where they came from, said Baltimore is a “rodent and rat infested mess,” and a white supremacist mass shooter used his rhetoric against immigrants. In between all that, he shot a campaign video while visiting shooting victims, tried to buy Greenland, and falsified a hurricane forecast with a Sharpie.

He has emerged from this season of scandal with falling approval ratings in every battleground state — including double-digit drops in all four of the states he is planning rallies in.

Published

Republicans in the House of Representatives have put up posters behind their seats that offer a preview of their strategy to defend President Donald Trump in Wednesday's open impeachment hearings.

As reported by Politico's Kyle Cheney, Republicans in the hearings are displaying posters that don't defend the substance of the charges against the president but instead impugn the integrity of Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and the still-anonymous whistleblower who filed the complaint against the president.

Trump aides frantically stalling president from naming whistleblower on Twitter: ‘It is not a matter of if but when’

Published

on

While Fox News and all the major news outlets are refraining from naming the person who is presumed to be the whistleblower whose complaint became the genesis for the House impeachment hearings on Donald Trump, top White House staffers are afraid the president will tweet the name out, setting off a firestorm.

According to a report at The Daily Beast, Trump is aware of a name being bandied about by rightwing websites and has yet to link to the stories, but as his impeachment hearings become a reality there is a fear that he will blurt the name out.
