The former president used his first rally in the city of brotherly love to tie violent crime with illegal immigration, despite the evidence against this

Crooked Joe or Sleepy Joe? Donald Trump wanted to know which nickname his supporters prefer. “That’s the first time Sleepy Joe has ever beaten Crooked Joe!” he said with surprise, after asking the crowd to make noise for each contender.

That, however, is not the branding exercise the former US president cares about most right now. On Saturday night he wanted his followers to go home with three words: Biden. Migrant. Crime.

A month after his audacious campaign stop in the Bronx, New York, Trump held his first ever campaign rally in Philadelphia, the birthplace of American democracy and another Democratic stronghold where Joe Biden won 81.4% of the vote in 2020.

    Man, the projection isn’t so much offensive as tired and pathetic… Don, you’re a convicted felon! The only reason you won in 2016 is because you kept information from voters with illegal campaign payments.

      I’d say the offensive part is that his fans, almost all of whom were adult human beings in America from 2016-2020 buy that shit.

      Jim Leedom, wearing a T-shirt bearing the words “We the people are pissed off”, said: “He’s definitely going to clean that up good. The atrocities that are going on down there, the little girls being raped, the women being raped, the drug cartel has control of the whole area – Biden doesn’t seem to give a shit.”

      “None of that shit went on when Trump was in.”

      And when the FBI announces that crime is down, which they have, Trump just says they’re lying, like he did in this article. They believe that true. Anything Trump says is true and anything anyone else says that contradicts him is false. I guarantee you that tons of them are now repeating his claim that magnets don’t work in water.

    Biden. Migrant. Crime.

    Reminds me of “person, woman, man, camera, TV.” Are these folks cave people or what?
