What happens if his rhetoric triggers another MAGA-bomber whose bombs go off? Or instead of driving a car into a crowd, what if a neo-Nazi takes a few AR-15's and shoots up the Democratic side of a state legislature of a state Trump says stole the election from him? Then Trump says something like, "I warned you it would be very bad if you stole an election from me..." and away we go.

I mean, ****, I wouldn't be surprised at all to see neo-Nazis with guns or Bikers for Trump looking all tough hanging out around polling places in 2020. In fact, I'd be surprised if this does NOT happen somewhere. They already had the big ICE/CBP/whatever demonstrations in El Paso during the midterms.

We don't live in a totally free, fair, safe democracy that has free, fair elections without any intimidation anymore.
anymore? we never have cuse.

Trump is nothing without his enablers and I just don't see there being any institutional support for craziness like that.
I don't think there would be enough support either so I agree with your overall point, but the answer to the bolded is obviously "yes".

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Before deciding to ground Boeing 737s, Trump privately said they ‘sucked’

The quiet shade in this article is great

Quote:
In his words, it “sucked.”

The president said Boeing 737s paled in comparison to the Boeing 757, known as Trump Force One, which he owns as a personal jet, according to White House and transportation officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. He questioned why Boeing would keep building the model and opined that he never would have bought a 737 for the Trump Shuttle, the small airline he briefly ran three decades ago that relied on 727s before going bankrupt, the officials said.
Quote:
Trump, who claims to have personally renegotiated Boeing’s contract to build Air Force One, relinquished his failed Trump Shuttle between Boston, New York and Washington in 1991 after never making a profit. His criticism of the 737 — the best-selling jetliner model in history — came just weeks after he attended an event in Hanoi celebrating Vietnam’s purchase of 100 of the Boeing jets.
As for the actual grounding decision: ground them, or don't, does it really matter?

Quote:
Trump added to the confusion Wednesday by suggesting that the decision to ground the plane was “psychologically” important but was neither urgent nor conclusive.

“We didn’t have to make this decision today. We could have delayed it,” he said Wednesday. “We maybe didn’t have to make it at all. But I felt it was important both psychologically and in a lot of other ways.”

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

The next norm/barrier to crack is when Trump starts linking to/quoting directly from Breitbart "articles". (I say this hoping and praying that he hasn't done so yet.)

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Important to note that by 11:05 Eastern (the time of that tweet), the fact that a massive shooting in New Zealand had occurred was well known.

Instead of offering condolences to our Kiwi friends, this piece of **** sends out a tweet linking to the Breitbart homepage.

If this tub of lard utters the phrase "good guy with a gun" or any variant thereof, I should probably be placed on an FBI watch list.

I guess maybe they'll pump the brakes on the good guy with a gun stuff this time around, since what that would mean in this case is Muslims with guns.

Not only does he link Breitbart, he does it after an awful mass shooting of Muslims (it appears it’s going to be dozens of dead Muslims), and of course the Breitbart comments on the story are full blown Thet deserved it Islam has no redeeming value takes.

There is blurb going around that the gunman is a Trump admirer.

Breitbart's got you. Apparently a good guy with a gun chased away the shooter. This **** is just so ****ing predictable.

Things that will simultaneously be true.

It’s NZs fault for allowing immigration.
This shows that gun laws don’t work
These people are crazy. No way to stop them.
It’s a false flag. Why is it so far away?
