Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, October 10, 2021

Not one year removed from surviving a second impeachment, the former president rallied before thousands of his most loyal supporters across the Iowa State Fairgrounds on a balmy Midwestern evening. He regaled them with his stories from the White House, his falsehoods and complaints about the 2020 election results, and his criticisms of the Biden administration on everything from immigration to the withdrawal from Afghanistan. The bulk of Trump's speech was devoted to his baseless claim that the 2020 election was stolen " a false belief that was supported by the crowd, who broke out into chants of "Trump won! Trump won! Trump won!"

But the notable elements were not what was said by Trump, but who was there with him. Appearing alongside the former president was a who's who of influential Republicans in the Hawkeye state, including Sen. Chuck Grassley and Gov. Kim Reynolds, Iowa Reps. Mariannette Miller-Meeks and Ashley Hinson, former acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker and Iowa GOP Chair Jeff Kaufmann.

Trump has held rallies since leaving the White House. But never have elected Republicans of such tenure and stature appeared with him. And the presence of Grassley in particular signified that whatever qualms the GOP may have had with Trump are now faded memories; whatever questions they had about the direction of the party have been resolved.

When are the deplorables going to admit that the racist orange turd lost by 7 million votes after sabotaging the USPS and closing thousands of polling places?

This does not bode well. If the Dems don't start pushing back, Trump's delusions may become everyone's nightmare.

I'll be so happy when I can see these fools bleed out on Main Street - the ones that aren't hacking up blood from the Covid, that is.

The Trumpites will start killing people, and a thoughtful man might predict when. Two examples:

1) Trump runs in 2024 and loses.

2) Trump runs in 2024 and looks like he will lose. In this case, there will be bombs at polling places and targeted assassinations as low as the city level.

3) If Trump drops dead suddenly, the Trumpites will kill people.

4) If Trump drops dead slowly, like with cancer, Trumpites will kill people. They'll say it was Polonium.

5) If Trump is indicted on any serious charge whatsoever, Trumpites will kill people.

6) If Trump is convicted, Trumpites will kill more people.

He will never admit defeat so long as he can keep raising money off of the numbnuts that believe him.
