Trump's Pennsylvania Crowd Got Bored And Started To Leave During 90-Minute Ramble
Trump's unquenchable thirst for media attention over the past five years has made him the most overexposed president in American history.

Trump's charm has lost its magic. They are walking out!

Donald Trump delivered a 90-minute ramble at a campaign stop in Pennsylvania on Thursday night, and not even all of the diehard supporters who showed up could stomach their way through the whole thing.

According to MSNBC's Garrett Haake,"The President has been speaking for about an hour and 20 minutes, and folks are starting to get restless. Many now sitting down, some trickling out."

During Trump's 90-minute, stream-of-consciousness rant, he attacked Biden for wearing a mask, whined about plastic straws being banned, and said he couldn't wait to "get the hell out of" Pennsylvania. Trump also urged his supporters - again - to vote twice in the upcoming election.

Apparently that wasn't enough to keep his crowd interested as the crowd was completely silent toward the end of Trump's speech.

Donald Trump has jumped the shark


When Donald Trump first announced he was running for president in 2015, his rallies often received wall-to-wall coverage on cable news networks.

Like a fiery car crash on the side of the road, it was hard to look away from the presidential campaign of a failed businessman and reality TV star.

But Trump's unquenchable thirst for media attention over the past five years has made him the most overexposed president in American history.

Now, his rallies are boring and his stunts are predictable. Watching him rip into a 90-minute rant is no longer entertaining. His made-for-TV press conferences are a snooze fest.

As we saw on Thursday night in Pennsylvania, even some of Donald Trump's supporters aren't that into it anymore.

Did you see him in India?  They left in droves due to his mispronunciation of their language.  He didn't get that if you see hundreds of people's backs, they are fucking leaving.

Biden makes no news (the media makes it for him)- outside of very short, very scripted and rehearsed, sound bytes, given to very sympathetic talking heads that will ask him only scripted questions. Biden couldn't do 90 minutes of anything- except maybe sleeping.

And that is still better than 90 minutes of Trump being alive.

It would seem that your seeded articles version of events got it all wrong....

The county paper predicted a crowd of 2,000-plus for President Donald Trump's 7 p.m. hangar stop. There are more than twice that many vehicles in the parking lots and fields by 4.

LATROBE, Penn. — There are three roads to Arnold Palmer Regional Airport. The traffic jam stretches 1.5 miles into Unity Township, out a mile toward the country club, and eight miles toward Pittsburgh. Parking by a mailbox and hoping we don’t get towed, we hustle past as the red flag-waving line of packed cars, trucks, station wagons and occasional motorcycles creeps slowly onward toward this evening’s festivities.

The county paper predicted a crowd of 2,000-plus for President Donald Trump’s 7 p.m. hangar stop. There are more than twice that many vehicles in the parking lots and fields by 4, with some camping out overnight and miles more on their way, slowly passing the Trump signs that decorate every other yard. The president won this state by a paper-thin 44,000 votes four years ago, and polls show a razor-tight race.

Rolling Rock drinkers might recognize the town of Latrobe from the cold, green bottles they knock back, but the plant closed in 2006 amid stalling sales talks, eventually moving far away.

Latrobe Brewing had called this city home since 1939 — and left generations of employees behind for the few hard years ahead. “Every bar had Rolling Rock on tap,” the bartender at Touchdown Club tells us. “Everybody boycotted it. Just this year people started drinking it again.”

Stacie Molina, a young-looking 36, tends bar at “the club.” Founded in ’47, it was private for years, and the hand-written membership cards of Steelers legend Terry Bradshaw, founder Art Rooney, owner Art Rooney II, and hometown hero “Mr. Rogers” are framed on the wall. This town has hosted football teams for 125 years, and the Steelers’ training camp is just by the airport.

The old-timers enjoyed old-time steakhouse cocktails like the grasshopper until the last one passed just a few weeks before our visit. “If you sat in one of their seats, they’d just stand there and look at you until you moved,” Stacie laughs. I order a longneck Rolling Rock after assurances I won’t upset any of the mid-afternoon drinkers.

Young and old, men and women, politicos and locals are packing in as we make the near-mile trek from the roadside gravel we hope won’t cause any trouble as a parking spot for the evening. You’ll hear about “the festival atmosphere” from corporate reporters at Black Lives Matter riots as arson’s smoke drifts pasts their cameras, but for years Trump rallies have been more like big classic rock or country music concerts, complete with a tailgating feel, laughter, broad smiles, and a presidential soundtrack ranging from Guns n’ Roses to Celine Dion.

It’s a laugh, reading intrepid reporters’ accounts of the hostile mobs they claim to face at these events when the reality is far closer to the harmless cheers and boos of a medieval fair’s jousting match. There will be thousands who sit in traffic for hours just to get somewhere nearby, but the only frown is on the face of a driver stuck for a moment in the muddy grass of his makeshift “parking spot.”

A helicopter drifts nearby and Phil Collins’ “In The Air Tonight” begins as the loudspeaker announces Air Force One’s imminent arrival to booming cheers, the playlist shifting to “Eye of the Tiger” as the national plane pulls by.

Tears stream down the faces of two older women in the crowd. “I’m just so excited!” one exclaims, embarrassed, while a third friend chuckles and pats her on the back.

Emerging from the iconic presidential backdrop to cheers, applause, and chants of “USA!” the president launches right into it, praising “my late, great friend Arnold Palmer” and promising the crowd “I will keep your jobs in America, and I will bring violent looters, rioters, anarchists, I will bring them to justice.”

“We have more than 400 of them under arrest, these are bad people,” he continues, listing administration accomplishments from defeating ISIS to tackling “the China virus.”

“Now we have to get back to work,” he promises, counting the 61 days “until we win Pennsylvania.”

“We don’t have a lot of farmers in the crowd,” he says, moving off a quick riff on trade. “We have boilermakers. We have a lot of boilermakers in the crowds. You don’t mess with those guys,” he chuckles as fists rise in bandstand to the right, filled with the men and families of Pittsburgh’s Local 154, whose endorsement the president earned. “Those are tough guys.”

“I watch Nancy Pelosi say, ‘You must wear your mask, you have to wear your mask, and we’re gonna keep every beauty salon closed in California, all across the country,” he begins an hour in, launching into a comedy bit with his mock-impersonation of the speaker. “And then I see a picture, I say, “Where’s her mask?’ And I tell ya what, she must have treated that beauty saloon owner very badly. She uses the salon and the salon turned her in!?”

“The salon turned her in!” he continues to the rising laughter. “I don’t think I would have turned her in, I think I would have said, ‘Well, ya know, shes a customer! I gotta take care of my customers, right?’ … How much do they hate Nancy Pelosi?”

“She said ‘I was set up!'” he adds a few moments later. “I want the salon owner to be leading the House of Representatives! … Nancy, you’re not supposed to get set up, you’re leading our country! … She’s a highly overrated person, they give her such good play, she is a highly overrated person.”

“Look they just turned off a camera,” he says, pointing toward the press stands amid roaring boos and laughing thumbs-downs, “because they don’t want me saying that!”

Night has fallen as the 90-minute, non-stop, no-warm-up evening comes to a close and the president turns back to his prepared remarks, lifting the crowd one last time with a rousing closer. “This is the commonwealth where our union was saved by the heroes at Gettysburg, and where generations of tough, strong workers mined the coal, worked the railroads, forged the steel that made America into the greatest, most powerful nation in the history of the world.”

“Proud citizens like you helped build this country, and together we are taking back our country from these very, very deranged people. We are returning power to you, the American people. With your help and your devotion and your drive we are going to keep on working, we are going to keep on fighting, and we are going to keep on winning, winning, winning!”

“We are one movement, one people, one family, and one glorious nation under God. America swill soon be thriving like never before. Next year will be the greatest economic year in the history of our country, and together we will work very hard. … We will make America wealthy again, we will make America strong again, we will make America proud again, and we will make America great again!”

As fans line up to buy hats — “I’ll have the red MAGA one, the blue one, and the USA one” — and folks help elderly relatives with an arm or a cleared path to walk, the crowds empty into the evening. Outside, the fortunate among the thousands of overflow viewers cheer and exchange slogans with the luckiest ones in the hangar.

“I didn’t see any counter-protesters,” a woman says to her husband as they make their way back to the parking lot.

It’s a full moon as we roll through the hills back toward the mountainside highway. It’s been a lively night in Latrobe, and some fans will be heading to the bars, but most will be headed home — the kids are getting tired, and tomorrow is still a workday.

As compared to the leftist Brown Shirt protesters gathering every day right?

At least the one's attending the Trump rally didn't riot, commit assault and arson, and loot. Can't same the same for the left's Brown Shirts.

The president held a rally in Latrobe, Pennsylvania on Thursday and blasted "Joe Hiden" for spending the summer in his basement and failing to condemn the violent leftists terrorizing American cities.

"Joe Biden was silent as far-left rioters viciously attacked law enforcement in Democrat-run cities, burned down businesses, terrorized civilians, and just recently marched through the streets chanting 'Death to America,'" Trump told the enthusiastic crowd of supporters. 

While Biden was in the basement, his staff was donating money to bail out  violent rioters the police were able to catch, which included individuals with rape and murder charges. The Trojan horse candidate's running mate, Kamala Harris, similarly urged her supporters to help bail out the thugs. If you live in a Democrat-run city, you can thank your Democrat leaders for perpetuating the violence.

But now that leftist violence is starting to show up in polls in the president's favor, Biden and the Democrats have finally condemned it. They condemn anything once they realize it helps Trump: a strong economy, ending the lockdowns, getting kids back to school, developing a vaccine, securing the border, etc. 

"Biden will never be able to protect your jobs or your family," Trump warned. "He is a puppet of the socialists, Marxists, and the cop-hating extremists. And they are cop-hating," the president warned, describing Black Lives Matter to a T. 

The president accused Biden of spending "the last 47 years betraying the American people." By contrast, the president said his administration has spent the past four years delivering on promises. Trump cited his USMCA trade deal with Mexico and Canada --  a deal so good even Nancy Pelosi took a break from impeaching Trump to pass it -- as a promise kept to Pennsylvanian voters. 

"Biden supported cutting social security. He voted for the Iraq War. He opposed the mission to take out Osama Bid Laden. He opposed the killing of Soleimani ... He oversaw the rise of ISIS, and he cheered the rise of China as a 'positive development' for America and the entire world," Trump said. 

The president vowed to make the United States the "manufacturing superpower of the world" and promised to end America's reliance on China "once and for all." Trump said his agenda was made in America and Biden's agenda was made in China. 

While the crowd far exceeded Pennsylvania's 250-person limit on outdoor gatherings, Democrats and the media should be relieved to learn that organizers of the rally say the gathering was a "peaceful protest."

Just because a public execution might draw a crowd does not mean the condemned is very popular...

Swamping a seed is not cool. Shouting louder does not convince. That is the subject of the article. 

At some point, people notice that The Prophet is a liar... and worse... a boring liar, forever repeating the same sort of crap.
