President Donald Trump on Saturday amused himself on Twitter after holding a fundraiser at his DC hotel and before a controversial rally in Nevada.
After claiming that Hispanic voters were “strongly favoring” his campaign, Trump praised his supporters by tweeting a photo of a wedding at a house that was painted as a giant campaign sign.

The photos generated a great deal of commentary online, here’s some of what people were saying:
These images aren’t encouraging – they are disturbing. People who become obsessed with a politician and idolize them in this way need help. Most sane people don’t want a cult leader as president – they want a decent person who will do right by the American people.

You’re congratulating people for having the ability to put up signs?
You sure set the bar low for your supporters.

Nothing more romantic for a wedding than having an 18-foot cutout of Donald Trump there.

Recent actions by the U.S. Attorney General, said chairs of key House committees, "clearly appear intended to benefit President Trump politically."

‘Now we have all these victims’: Trump 2016 voter bolting GOP because president ‘can’t handle the job’
According to New York Times/Sienna College poll, Donald Trump has yet to recover with voters from his mismanagement of the coronavirus pandemic, and his collapse in the polls is mirrored by at least three Republican senators who are all facing ouster in November.
With the embattled president still fighting with his own public health officials over precautions the public should take to avoid being infected by the deadly COVID-19 virus, his own campaign is watching his numbers flounder as voters express their unhappiness at his fumbling of the first real crisis of his presidency.
‘Hip hip, hooray!’: Nikki Haley mocked for ‘endorsing’ Biden after she warns he would move US ‘pretty dramatically’ left
Former Trump Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is once again being mocked for a tweet that appears to many as an endorsement for the Joe Biden – Kamala Harris Democratic presidential ticket.

"Electing Biden would move the country pretty dramatically to the left in all but the most optimistic scenarios. A vote for Biden may well turn out to be a vote for Kamala Harris."
