Among cheering crowds in a stadium of 35,000 people that had to be moved from a smaller hotel ballroom, presidential candidate Donald Trump held a rousing ralley for his growing legions. The Trump campaign was forced to change venues twice as the anticipated crowd swelled to sizes much larger than other locations could accommodate.
“We have politicians that don’t have a clue,” said Trump, wearing a red hat on which was printed “Make America Great Again,” his slogan. “They’re all talk, no action. What’s happening to this country is disgraceful.”
He added: “We’re running on fumes. There’s nothing here. . . . We’re not going to have a country left. We need to have our borders. We need to make great deals.”
He is so right and hit the nail on the head. After almost 8 years of having a president that hates America and says it needs to be punished, (just read his book Dreams From My Father) we have to build her back up again with someone who deeply loves America. I believe Trump is that man. He’s used to dealing with leaders of foreign countries to get his buildings established there. He hires people and creates jobs, he loves America and its’ veterans not someone like Obama who has reduced our military to pre- ww11 levels.
When Trump speaks it’ always straight from the heart and he says what’s on his mind. He doesn’t use speech writers and doesn’t use teleprompters. In fact he has said politicians shouldn’t use teleprompters when speaking to the public. I did notice he had a few hand written notes in his hand which is natural with a speech like that and as he walked off he had his notes in his hand and I noticed there were just a few scribbled lines with large margins in between them so it wasn’t written out. He hardly looked down at them anyway and spoke directly to the audience even commenting to a few in attendence. I just wish the camera could have flashed over to the ones he was commenting to.
Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, said in an interview that Trump could “win significant support” in the South, buoyed by his hard-line views on trade and immigration as well as the GOP base’s restive appetite for an outsider. “We’re going to be strong in Iowa, New Hampshire and the other states that start it out,” Lewandowski said. “Then comes the South. That’s the path to the nomination.”
Trump chose Mobile for his big rally in part because it is the hometown of Sen. Jeff Sessions (R), an immigration hard-liner who has been counseling Trump and helped him develop his immigration policy paper. Trump brought Sessions onstage. The senator put on a white “Make America Great Again” hat. (“These hats are hot as a pistol,” Trump quipped.

SEN. SESSIONS JOINS ON STAGE… Biggest event yet? Massive crowd goes wild for Trump
Following Trump’s rally in Mobile, CNN aired an interview taped earlier with him by Chris Cuomo. Trump said basically the same thing to Chris’s questions almost word for word from his Alabama speech. I thought Chris acted a cross between being condescending and argumentative while kissing up to the Donald all at once. During the breaks Chris showed CNN’s bias tone against Trump in the various introductions to each clip. At one time Trump said he admired strong women and cited champion UFC fighter Rhonda Rousey. During the break Chris said, “We contacted Rhonda Rousey and she said she wouldn’t vote for Trump because she doesn’t trust him.” He didn’t have to say that and by doing so clearly shows CNN’s bias against Trump even though they would probably say they were being objective and showing both sides.
Many republican strategists are complaining that Trump has a liberal side and supported democratic principles right up to before he switched sides. Still others say it’s too early to tell yet. To those people I say that at least he’s making sound principles that resonate with the majority of people and besides he and Hillary’s e-mails are all the media is covering now. There’s not a peep out of the other candidates except for Bush when attacking Trump for disagreeing with him. Jeb’s policies are very liberal too on immigration and his support for common core both which are democrat lite. You don’t hear anything from Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindahl,George Pataki and only occasionally from Rand Paul,Ben Carson, Marco Rubio and Carly Fiorina and the rest of the GOP candidates. The one that comes closest to Trump’s coverage is Ted Cruz.
On the democrat side all you hear about is Hillary’s corruption and e-mails and the size of Bernie Sanders rallies.
Rush Limbaugh recently quipped, ”The democratic party used to be the party of hip and cool. Now all they have is three old white dinosaurs running for president, Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden.” You can probably add Al Gore in there too as he’s considering running now.
Meanwhile now things seem to be in reverse. The republicans have a Hispanic in Marco Rubio, an African American in Ben Carson, an Indian in Bobby Jindahl and a woman in Carly Fiorina. Oh what a tangled web we weave.
