President Trump is about to deliver a speech at his campaign rally in Greenville, North Carolina. Follow along for a video thread.
Trump begins his speech by saying it could be a long one because he has "nothing to do." Good gig if you can get it.
Trump gloats over Wednesday's failed attempt to impeach him, thanks the Democrats who voted against his impeachment
Trump tries to goad the crowd into booing the "fake news" but in an unusual twist they don't really take the bait this time
It's July 17, 2019 and Trump is still out here reminiscing about the 2016 election
Trump's human backdrop in North Carolina is very white but there are a lot of women
TRUMP, echoing someone in the crowd, refers to the Mueller probe as "bullshit." The crowd goes wild.
TRUMP praises himself with some hyperbole: "Nobody in their first two and a half years has done anywhere close to what we -- not me -- what we have all done."
Trump says that "all" the world leaders who visit him in the White House, "including dictators ... start off by saying Mr President, I would look to congratulate you on the incredible economy you have created, the greatest anywhere in the world by far."
Trump, alluding to Democratic congresswoman of color, says they "want to demolish our constitution, weaken our military, eliminate the values that built this magnificent country." The crowd boos them loudly.
Trump mentions Ilhan Omar, and the loudest boos of the night break out. Trump's speech is then interrupted by a protester.

"He goes home now to mommy and he gets reprimanded and that's the end. 'Sorry mommy. Sorry mom. Didn't mean to embarrass you, mom,'" Trump says.
Trump fans eventually break out in "send her back!" chants directed toward Ilhan Omar, a Somali refugee who serves in Congress who Trump viciously smeared.
Trump on AOC: "I don't have time to go with three different names. We'll call her Cortez. Too much time. Takes too much time."
Trump suggests migrant detention camps really aren't that bad because they have air conditioning and are "clean." (There's video evidence they are not clean.)
TRUMP: "Tonight I have a suggestion for the hate-filled extremists who are constantly trying to tear our country down. They never have anything good to say. That's why I say 'hey, if they don't like it, let them leave. Let them leave. Let them leave!'"
TRUMP on Elizabeth Warren: "Pocahontas is gaining a little bit because we probably used the 'Pocahontas' a little bit too early, but that's okay, we will bring it out of retirement very soon." #BeBest
Republican candidate Greg Murphy claps into the microphone like a madman
Trump's brain short circuits when he tries to say "ninth congressional district"
Trump pushes an egregious lie: "The Democrats want to spend more money on health care for illegal immigrants more than the citizens of the United States."
Trump dehumanizes & pushes gore pore about MS-13, including mimicking how they purportedly stab people.

"These are sick people. When I called them 'animals' Nancy Pelosi said, 'how dare he use that name?' ... these are savage beasts."
TRUMP: "Hey Bernie, let me save you a lot of time and effort, Bernie. You missed your time. It got taken from you four years ago, Bernie. Not doing too well ... [but] you've gotta hand it to him, he's up there ranting & raving like a lunatic."

Trump then mockingly mimics Sanders
TRUMP on Brad Parscale: "He just told me our poll numbers are through the roof ... he just told me that so I'll take that. I mean, we are a year & a half away, but we're doing well."
Trump says this with a straight face: "The Democrats' vision on healthcare is deception and disruption ... patients with pre-existing conditions are protected by Republicans much more so than were protected by Democrats who can never pull it off."
While (again) trashing Elizabeth Warren as "Pocahontas," Trump reveals that he's still hopelessly confused about how fractions work.

"She then went out and got that test. 1000/24th! ... 1000/24th ... 1000/24th."

(He has it backward.)
TRUMP: "You know, it's interesting with women. So, women want to have strong military protection. They want to have strong borders. They want to have strong law enforcement. They want to have great education ... why wouldn't they want Trump more than anybody else?"
Trump spends a couple minutes "joking" about staying in office for longer than two terms.
TRUMP: "If we don't win in 2020, everything that we've done, seriously, everything we have done -- your 401[ks], it will crashing down like a stack of cards ... it can disappear very very quickly."
Trump tells a complete BS story about a businessman who doesn't like him personally but supports him anyway because he's such a great president. If a guy at the bar talked to you like this you'd slide down a couple stools.
Trump complains that he has no friends: "I lost all my friends! They've tightened up. They've choked. They can't breathe. Because people have such respect for the office of the president."
LOL -- Trump starts talking about "apprenticeships and job training," while leads to him talking about The Apprentice, which leads to him trashing Arnold Schwarzenegger -- and then he abruptly says, "I proudly signed 4 bipartisan human trafficking laws." #StableGenius
TRUMP: "A vote for any Democrat in 2020 is a vote for the rise of radical socialism ... frankly, the destruction of our country." 😳
Trump tells a "sir" story about a general and mentions how the general is good looking and is straight out of "central casting"
“Send her back!” Trump’s rally in North Carolina was an orgy of bigotry vox.com/2019/7/17/2069…
Here's Trump praising a "beautiful baby" adorned with a Qanon logo during same rally in which his fans serenaded one of America's first Muslim congresswoman with "send her back!” chants.

Classy, normal stuff.
Former White House comms director and current Trump campaign staffer @mercedesschlapp dunks on Trump's base for being racist 🤔
Here's full clip of Trump attacking Omar & ensuing "send her back!" chants. Couple things to note:

1) The hypnotic way Trump puts words in her mouth to make it seem like she's an al-Qaeda supporter
2) The jingoistic grunts emanating from crowd, reminiscent of an Idiocracy scene
Trump's brain misfired and he made an odd hissing sound when he mentioned AOC's name
Trump mentioned 8 women by name during his speech on Wednesday night in North Carolina. He said disparaging things about each of them, and positive things about none. vox.com/2019/7/18/2069…
Trump's attempt to do damage control by distancing himself from the "send her back!" chants he incited is a big lie. Here are the receipts. vox.com/policy-and-pol…
