Florida retirement community descends into civil war as Trump supporters plot sabotage of opponents’ golf carts

Published

on

The Villages, a sprawling retirement community in Florida, came under the national spotlight this weekend when President Donald Trump approvingly promoted a video that featured an elderly supporter who lives there chanting, “White power!”

The Daily Beast reports that Democratic residents in The Villages feel increasingly under siege from their Trump-loving counterparts, who recently plotted to sabotage the Democrats’ plans to hold a golf cart rally to kick off the 2020 election season.

Chris Stanley, the president of The Villages Democratic Club, tells the publication that he caught Trump-supporting residents plotting online to toss nails in the path that the Democrats were planning to use to drive to their planned golf cart rally.

The Daily Beast reviewed a local discussion forum in which it did find comments promoting the idea of littering the golf cart path with nails, as well as hurling eggs at the Democrats’ carts as they drove by.

When the rally actually happened, however, Stanley said there were no nails in the path.

“They were laying in wait for us with foul signs and name-calling and threatening gestures,” Stanley said. “It was ugly. It was very ugly… That’s what life is like for us now in the Villages. I hope that starting Nov. 4, things get better.”

"Trump has no idea what words like fascism and totalitarianism mean," McFaul, now a professor at Stanford, declared.

"To those who wrote this speech and those senior [White House] officials who approved this speech, shame on you. Perhaps the most un-American speech ever delivered by an American president and on the July 4th weekend no less," he explained.

Veteran Nevada political reporter Jon Ralston, the editor of The Nevada Independent, tweeted out a screenshot of the email sent by Michael McDonald, the chairman of the state GOP.

Ralston described the email as a "microcosm of NV GOP's incompetence (and illiteracy)" and mocked the party by saying "English is a difficult language to master."

Here is Ralston's thread on the Fourth of July message:

Microcosm of NV GOP's incompetence (and illiteracy) in Chairman @McDonaldNV's Independence Day message, which begins (I kid you not.):

Trump has gone from ‘merely losing’ to ‘flailing’ in one month as he faces a November election wipeout: report

Published

on

On Saturday, Politico reported that President Donald Trump's campaign is in freefall — and that, despite there still being hypothetical ways former Vice President Joe Biden could snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, the president and his party are in dire straits.

"As recently as one month ago, Donald Trump was merely losing," reported David Siders. "Now he is flailing, trudging into the Independence Day weekend at the nadir of his presidency, trailing by double digits in recent polls and in danger of dragging the Republican Senate down with him."
