The Children at the Trump Rallies === What is it like to see young people exposed to so much anger?

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



One of the most poignant photos from that time was of a boy, dressed as a fledgling Trump, in the front row of a rally with his father in Grand Junction, Colo., just two weeks before the election. Together, they chanted, “Lock her up, lock her up!” The father beamed with pride. Vitriol sputtered from his son Jaden’s mouth.

As before, I was drawn to the children, but this time through the lens of 19 months of the Trump administration. The people in that arena supported the actions of a sitting president, not just the musings of a candidate. In that time, the anger I experienced on the trail had taken shape with real-world consequences. The chants of “Build the wall” in 2016 were realized in a haphazard zero-tolerance immigration policy that resulted in nearly 3,000 child separations in 2018.

That night, I photographed 10-year-old Gianna Musolino holding her father’s arm in the most tender and gentle embrace, her arms entwined around his, her head nestled in the soft bend of his elbow. There was no mistaking the comfort and protection she felt under his wing and the pride he felt in providing it.





I thought again about my son, as I have done so many times over these past few months, imagining with deep sadness what it would be like for him to be taken away from us and what it might do to him. How could any parent possibly support a president capable of this?

He's not my president. The main characteristic of Donald Trump is that he is an insufferable asshole. It is written all over him with everything he says and all his mannerisms. I am an Irish kid from the tough parts of the south side of Chicago, and I was brought up to never ever admire an asshole. 

I've heard about enough excuses from Trump supporters who want to paper over the mountainous flaws in this man's personality, and in his words and deeds.

What they don't realize is that assholes are unpredictable and it won't be long before it's shitting on them too. Already the tariffs are taking their toll on those farmers and manufacturing workers who voted for him.

Hmmm, seems to me I remember a LOT of conservatives screaming "he's not MY President" when Obama was elected, along with some "clever" political wags who said "we won't work with this man."

I'm sure McConnell and his righteous crew would have loved to call him something besides a man, or at least add some descriptive words in there. It certainly expressed their respect to the man in office and the office itself.

Some people seem to have short and selective memories. Surprise, surprise.

You've got to be taught
To hate and fear,
You've got to be taught
From year to year,
It's got to be drummed
In your dear little ear
You've got to be carefully taught.

You've got to be taught to be afraid
Of people whose eyes are oddly made,
And people whose skin is a diff'rent shade,
You've got to be carefully taught.

You've got to be taught before it's too late,
Before you are six or seven or eight,
To hate all the people your relatives hate,
You've got to be carefully taught!

Like this cop?

An Arkansas police department said they fired an officer on Wednesday after he was captured in a viral video telling a group of black men they “don’t belong in my city.” 

England, Ark., resident Demarcus Bunch on Tuesday shared footage of the July 21 incident to his Facebook page. The video, which has since picked up traction on social media, shows Bunch and his cousin, Shannon Scribner, being approached by Officer Mike Moore.

Bunch told a local CBS affiliate the two were filming a part of a music video when Moore, who is white, slowed down and parked near them in his patrol vehicle until their crew collected their items and headed to their final shooting location.

“I was wondering, ‘Why is he doing this?'” Bunch told the outlet. “We’re in small England. Everybody knows everybody.”

Seeder, I have challenged you many, many times to provide proof of any of your claims of your seeds, and you have always failed to do so. Here is another opportunity to this seed only.

Point out one part of this rally where there was anger. Not your anger because you don't like Trump, but anger coming from those at the rally that you disapprove of bringing children to.

Otherwise, it is proof that you hate this President for no other reason than he is not named Hillary.

So some of don't like lying racist bully assholes who don't know squat about the job they got.  And as someone who actually has lived outside this country and knows people across the world,  most of the world agrees with me.  As so a majority of Americans.   My conscience and sense of righteousness won't allow me to pretend this behavior is ok and worth a political gain.  And I do have to wonder what allows you to believe and support a person who literally lies multiple times per day, every single day about the most important issues and about the most inane things.  Anything and everything.  do I even need to bring up his cowardice with Putin?  Treason no longer a problem for you either?

Did you see the pics in 4.1? Do they look like they're cheering at a basketball game?

trump and his 29% LOVE to hate, because to hate someone or something you have to be SUPERIOR to them or it. By hating everything and everyone they feel they are the superior elite, how cool can you get?

Without that hate they're NOTHING and they know it deep in their hearts. The only way they feel anything is by hating and screaming as a group it gives them the illusion that they are so much smarter and superior to all, but it lasts only as long as they're hating so they make stuff up to be angry over it doesn't have to have anything to do with reality.

And the fear. If you hate them, they must hate you back. ALL of them must be hating you back. What a life, hate and fear.

 Soooo hate, scream, jump up and down, turn red, have a heart attack, HOLD ON TO THOSE OLD HATE VALUES, or else fade away like the ghosts of history they are, beings of no particular importance who never contributed anything good or special or even noteworthy.

That is your opinion of what he said...nothing more. It is also more than 2 years oldm BEFORE Trump was elected.

Now, how do you spin this.....

https://www.investors.com/politics/editorials/trump-supporters-attacks-violence-hatred-media-bias/

This is only a few of the more than 500 threats/attacks from the left against the right SINCE Trump was elected.

I'm sure you think of these as "standing up to the meanie" instead of violent acts of violence.

Why did supposedly responsible parents take their kids to Hillary rallies?

Was Hillary credibly accused of 19 sexual assaults? Has she admitted on tape when she sees a man she's attracted to she "doesn't even wait" and just grabs them by the dick? No? Well I guess you're comparing apples to orangutans then.

I said "credibly" accused, not whack-a-doodle Cathy "I was mind controlled by the CIA" O'brien accused. 

"According to O'Brien, under hypnosis she was able to recall memories of sexual abuse — of both herself and her daughter — by international pedophile rings, drug barons, and satanists, who allegedly used a form of "trauma based mind control programming" to make her a sex slave". 

"According to scholars, there is no credible evidence for O'Brien's claims and there are numerous inconsistencies with her story."

I think I'll stick with believing scholars to believing an attention seeking nut job claiming hidden memories under hypnosis who has zero evidence of any of her claims.

In case you've forgoten here is the list of credible Trump accusers:

Jessica Leeds “He was like an octopus … His hands were everywhere.”

Jill Harth “He pushed me up against the wall, and had his hands all over me and tried to get up my dress again.”

Kristen Anderson "He did touch my vagina through my underwear."

Lisa Boyne “[Trump] stuck his head right underneath their skirts.”

Cathy Heller “He took my hand, and grabbed me, and went for the lips.”

Temple Taggart “He kissed me directly on the lips."

Mariah Billado (teen at time of incident in dressing room with girls as young as 15 undressing) "I remember putting on my dress really quick because I was like, 'Oh my God, there’s a man in here."

Karena Virginia "Then his hand touched the right side of my breast. I was in shock."

What evidence do you have that any of them are lying? Did any of them claim the CIA abducted them and mid control raped them? Do any of them have histories of being liars? Or is it just that you can't imagine your hero Trump doing exactly what he admitted to on tape and "doesn't even wait" for consent before he just grabs women he finds attractive by their genitals? As you know, opinions are like assholes, everyone got one, and your opinion about his accusers happens to be especially stinky. I could see sticking your head in the sand for one or two, maybe even three accusers who have nothing to gain and everything to lose by making the accusation, but 19? You have to do some serious mental gymnastics (or not care about sexual assault of women) to get past all 19 of them.

he also denied doing the same thing to allies around the world and we found out we spied on all our allies leaders.  Although that one doesn't bother me.  I would expect we have spy's and surveillance in every country

Yeah, we know that scholars and scientist can never be corrupted by Government don't we???

“If government scientists had merely done a bad job, then their results would have been all over the place,” notes Sills. “But all those wrong findings pointed in just one direction—that Vietnam vets weren’t harmed by these chemicals. This couldn’t have been a coincidence. And if the research provided any evidence that veterans might be at risk, they were still publicly described as proving that there was no danger. Also, one study showing increased birth defects in the children of potentially exposed veterans was simply kept secret.”

Just one example of many... Unfortunately, you don't want to believe that your "scientists" and "scholars" are corruptible.

Most of the so called illegals are people that have over stayed their visas, nothing to do with a border.

I want to decide where the money I earn goes..Trump is doing that with tax cuts

I don't know what to make of this. Tax cuts or not, we don't decide how the money is spent. The cuts were also disproportionately geared toward the wealthy.

I want a strong leader that will stand up to other country leaders and get what is best for the US and the other country, not just the other country...Trump is doing that

How is he helping us in that respect? He is putting down our true allies, sucking up to putin, got nowhere with NK, after pulling out of the agreement with Iran basically ignores them. Now his tariffs are going to hurt US consumers.

I want a strong military that will be able to thwart any and all threats...Trump is doing that

I didn't know our military was weak before. All he has done is increase spending. After tax cuts and increased spending, I would say increased debt and deficits is more of a weakness than our military.

It has EVERYTHING to do with a border! It doesn't matter HOW you got here; swam, flew, hiked, or drove in.  The bottom line is that there is indeed a Border between us and the rest of the world. Either you are here legally on THIS side of the Border; or you aren't! If you are--then you are here legally. If you aren't--then you are here ILLEGALLY! How hard is that to comprehend people????

People who get visas to visit here should be tracked as to where they are residing, with random visits during their stay. This is part of having a secure border.

By having a tax cut, I have more money in my pocket to decide what I want to do with it. Just a hypothetical..If you were one of those wealthy, would you give a crap that you got more than someone else. My guess is no. The wealthy get back more because they make more.

None of what you say about our allies and foes are true, only opinion. Trump has managed to get 48 billion out of our allies, fr more than any of his predecessors...exactly 48 billion more. As far as Putin, that is your opinion. As far as NK, we just received 55 true heroes back to American soil, one of which has already been positively IDd....all without paying a dime. Again, something his predecessors have not been able to do.

The spending increase was so our gutted military can once again be as strong as it was during the 80s. I spent 20 years in the Navy, ending in 2005, and saw firsthand the true demolishing of the military. Every ship that was preparing to go on deployment went to other ships in the harbor asking for supplies from ships not going on or just came back from deployment, including aircraft and helo parts.

Thi President has once again instilled  sense of pride in this country not seen since 9/11. We were able to come together as one then.

Building a wall is nothing more than an expensive feelgood measure.

If you were one of those wealthy, would you give a crap that you got more than someone else. My guess is no. The wealthy get back more because they make more.

I don't even know what this means. If I was wealthy, of course I would make more money than everyone else. I don't know what you mean by get back more as the wealthy should not get back anything. If I was extremely wealthy I would expect to pay a lot more in taxes. The wealthy were not hurting at all before the tax cuts and they are certainly not hurting now.

None of what you say about our allies and foes are true, only opinion

My opinion was formed by listening to other counties. Most do not like trump or his policies. The UK protest against trump looked bigger than any rally's in the US. I have seen the way he treats putin. One would have to be blind not to see trump basically being submissive to him.

What is the 48 billion more?
