The morons that I saw lined up around Municipal Auditorium that morning were very typical Trump lovers, white males, white elderly women, extremely vocal and clearly out of work to be standing all day in the first part of the week, an irony given that they loathe the unemployed.
The local cat litter liner, The Tennessean, actually printed this op-ed from a Trump supporter. She is not a Nashville resident which was frankly surprising as there is no loss of them here they are just like Gays were in the 50's, in the closet. I reprint her words as her lack of literacy, stating of facts and rambling incoherent bullshit is something that is best left for a blog - like I do! But no the local tear sheet has this on the online issue versus say something essential, such as news. But he we are in day ten of mourning the dead Cop from an adjacent "county" so whatever takes that off the front page I will gladly take.
In the glow of my president: a Trump supporter's report of the Nashville rally | Opinion
I never tire of the excitement and anticipation I feel prior to hearing my president speak, but it pales in comparison to the thrill of the moment he walks out on stage and conveys his heartfelt projection for the country he loves so deeply.
On May 29, he spoke to a crowd that fire officials placed at 5,500 people in Nashville’s Municipal Auditorium.
My friend Paulette Vee and I joined the first seven Trumpsters at midnight Monday night, waiting for the doors to open Tuesday at 4 p.m., some 16 hours away.
One friend, Pat Morgan, arrived Monday at noon.
Rain showers became heavy as late morning turned into afternoon, and I’m sure that accounted for the 1,500-plus empty seats in the venue. The police presence and secret service also increased as the hours passed.
As much as I respect law enforcement and appreciate their service, I must add, during both rallies that I’ve been to in Nashville, officers were curt and sometimes rude to folks who were there to hear the president.
It surprised me several times to hear and watch as they had any type of interaction with Trump supporters, especially when President Trump is such a staunch supporter of law enforcement.
I was located front and center, 18 feet from the podium. The Issacs sang the best rendition of the national anthem I’ve ever heard and country singer Trace Atkins performed next. A fine specimen of a man, I must say, by the way.
Then, the moment came that we had waited for. The man who has one goal: to lead our country back into prosperity and greatness.
President Donald J. Trump walked on stage.
The crowd chanted, screamed, clapped and cheered with deafening volume. Red Trump hats, banners, flags and signs waved to show support and beckon his glance or attention.
He always reviews his accomplishments since being elected, and please believe me when I say you have no idea what this man has done because no news source has ever reported it all. He always adds personal details as to how his goals were approached, planned or completed.
The president described one such detail concerning moving the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. After speaking to contacts about land, location and the actual building of the embassy, the president was told that the cost and time involved for the move would be large. He said that although the country had plenty of money to spend, he as a business man just couldn’t do it. **HUH?
I would never be able to convey in written words, or even if I could repeat verbally word for word his speech, how this man connects to every single person in his presence.
Each one knows for a fact that he or she is the one he’s speaking to, that he or she is the one he’s working for, that he or she is the most important person in Donald Trump’s life and that he or she matters most in his plans.
If news sources reported as they should, this president would win this country by a flood, where there’s not a segment of blue left to be noticed.
I would love to know that every person who thinks they like Donald J. Trump or if they might be undecided on their opinion of him would do everything in their power to attend just one of his rallies. Then, I’d like to hear their take on his leadership.
