Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, June 04, 2020

Washington Post reporter Aaron Blake published the Trump/Pence campaign's latest "FOR PATRIOTS ONLY" email. In it, the campaign says it is assembling a "Trump Army." It is unconcerned with subtlety, directly extending Trump's own calls for, as he put it, "Second Amendment" responses to Americans protesting police violence.

I have difficulty seeing how this ends well for Americans and the Country.

We have a running joke in our family where anytime we see someone in camo we act like we can't see the body part covered in camo so a dude wearing camo pants wow look at that floating torso.

So given a camo hat and our running joke it will be look at that person without a brain, it will work on just so many levels.

And when it appears that he's about to lose the election, will he 'call-up' his Army and order them to take to the streets to prevent an impending coup?

Far between sundown's finish an' midnight's broken toll
We ducked inside the doorway, thunder crashing
As majestic bells of bolts struck shadows in the sounds
Seeming to be the chimes of freedom flashing
Flashing for the warriors whose strength is not to fight
Flashing for the refugees on the unarmed road of flight
An' for each an' ev'ry underdog soldier in the night
An' we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing

The MEGA hats were a good seller. I saw a lot of women wearing them.

So this TRUMP'S ARMY hat is just another con job to make people think they're "special."

Trump's campaign manager usually comes up with these bright ideas. Like the "Trump/Pence 2020" face masks.

There's no "coup" ~~ no call to arms ~~ no "army" ~ no second amendment solutions. This is just a stupid hat sale.

@#17 .... This is just a stupid hat sale. ...

I would characterize it more as a campaign funding sale with an attempt to increase "the base" as a secondary benefit.

Pres Trump apparently likes to divide people based upon how they look, and whether or not you are wearing a camo Trump hat is one major-simple way to identify people who are seen by Trump supporters.

He already has his own army. It's out on his front lawn assaulting peacefully Protesting American citizens.

@#19 ... He already has his own army. It's out on his front lawn assaulting peacefully Protesting American citizens. ...

I would be reluctant to characterize it as "his own Army."

It is the military of the United States. Those in charge of said military have criticized how that military has been used recently by Pres Trump.

Which is probably why Pres Trump sees the need to create his own "Trump Army" with those overpriced hats.

The military that has sworn to uphold the Constitution doesn't want anything to do with Pres Trump's "army.".

And knowing Trump's campaign manager's past dealings, he probably set-up the company that arranged for these to be manufactured in China (or Vietnam) and he'll end up putting about 40% of the proceeds in his own pocket. Five years ago Trump campaign manager, Brad Parscale, was just a independent contractor working an occasional job doing webpage design for the Trump Organization. Now he's running a half-billion dollar operation while skimming the cream off the top, to the tune of multiple pieces of real estate in Florida, several high-priced autos, including at least one Ferrari, and a bank account reported to be in the millions.

Yet the 'joe-six-packs' are still buying those $35 MAGA hats and sending in $25 every time they get an email from the Trump 2020 Campaign thinking that they're saving America from the likes of Hillary and that 'colored family' that squatted in the White House for eight years.

Trump supporters never cease to amaze me just how ignorant and disingenuous they are.

March 25 2018

The former US president said his nonprofit the Obama Foundation could create a "platform for young, up-and-coming leaders" to exchange information with each other about projects they were working on.

"If I could do that effectively, then " you know " I would create a hundred or a thousand or a million young Barack Obamas or Michelle Obamas," Obama . "Or, the next group of people who could take that baton in that relay race that is human progress."

The Guardian

Obama wasn't talking about any army and he wasn't even currently President.

So Trumpy is jealous And wants all of all the attention and wants his own Horde?

I am sure he can round up a few Proud Boys or some Oath Keepers or some Boogaloo boys.

None of them have jobs as they aren't allowed to kill black people right now so they are all available.

Too bad he can't just walk outside and talk to the crowds surrounding his house and win them over.

So what cause will the Horde be supporting?
