I’ve got two tickets to the Trump rally next week!

Our President is holding another campaign rally (doesn’t he have important things to do? Like golfing some more?) on 10 October, in Minneapolis. So I reserved my tickets right away. I sure hope nothing comes up that Thursday, like classes maybe, or a spider eruption, or a little indigestion, to prevent me from filling that seat. We’ll see.

Mary wants to protest the visit, but there may be some personal conflicts with that, since she’s also flying off to Texas to spend time with her favorite grandson.

I guess we’ll just have to let the Minneapolis mayor speak for us.

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, a Democrat, declared Trump an unwelcome visitor.

“Under ordinary circumstances, it would be an honor to welcome a sitting president of the United States to Minneapolis and to showcase all our city has to offer on the national stage,” Frey said in a statement Thursday. ”But these aren’t ordinary circumstances. Since taking office President Trump’s actions have been reprehensible and his rhetoric has made it clear that he does not value the perspectives or rights of Minneapolis’ diverse communities.”

Frey added, “While there is no legal mechanism to prevent the president from visiting, his message of hatred will never be welcome in Minneapolis.”

Trump Go Home.

    Mayor Frey should demand Dumpf pays the town in advance for the costs incurred by police support, traffic diversions etc. Otherwise he will just ignore the bill.

    …also, if you study him in situ, you might give us advice about who ought to play him in the inevitable film about his presidency.
    Rowan Atkinson? Zombie Benny Hill?

    I can’t say I wouldn’t be tempted to go. No matter what else, this is a historic presidency and he will be particularly whiny right now.

    The only things that would keep me from going would be concern for my safety when people realize I’m not a supporter, and every person there pumps up the numbers that keep him happy.

    re @6:

    I would. Maybe with one of those big foam #1 hands, modified to be a “one finger salute”.
    I suspect all the signs the sheeple hold at his rallies are handed out at the entrance as a requirement to stay in the stands.

    Hey, if you can’t make it, you should send minions to represent you.
    I wonder how many spiders could fit in those seats?

    Get lots of people to reserve space and fill it with emptiness. Then watch the fun begin as monster baby declares it the biggest rally ever.

  7. llyris says

    While he’s wasting his time at relatively pointless rallies in places he isn’t welcome he isn’t drumming up support in more volatile areas.
    Maybe a lot of people could show up to stare at him in deep profound silence while holding various progressive placards. That might also intimidate any trump supporters who show up.
