Trump's rally lies are growing much more preposterous as he pulls his old pal abject fear out of his kit
In MI & Wis yesterday he accused Dems of wanting to 'erase American history'
And his crowds now chant 'lock HIM up'
If only..
2-"President Donald Trump leaned into fear tactics Saturday as he accused the left of trying to ‘destroy the American way of life’ in a late reelection pitch to voters in Michigan and Wisconsin — two Midwestern states that were instrumental to his 2016 victory but may now be
3-"slipping from his grasp. In back-to-back rallies, Trump accused the left of wanting to ‘erase American history’ and ‘purge American values.’ He claimed, with no basis, that Democratic rival Joe Biden would put communities at risk.
4-"Trump offered the dark message as he faces headwinds not only in national polling, which shows Biden leading, but also in key battleground surveys. His comments come after his campaign, with far less cash than Biden’s, largely retreated from TV advertising in the Midwest,
5-"shifting much of its money to Sun Belt states such as Florida, North Carolina, Arizona and Georgia, as well as Pennsylvania.
6-"As he tries to energize his base and keep on-the-fence voters from turning against him, Trump sought to paint Democrats as ‘anti-American radicals’ and said moderates had ‘a moral duty’ to join the Republican Party. ‘The Democrat Party you once knew doesn’t exist,’ he said.”

NYT Jon Martin on Trump as his own campaign impediment: "In the week since he restarted in-person campaigning, Mr. Trump has continued to prove he is his own biggest impediment by drawing more attention to himself each day than to Mr. Biden.
2-"The president is blurting out snippets of his inner monologue by musing about how embarrassing it would be to lose to Mr. Biden — and how he’d never return to whatever state he happens to be in if its voters don’t help re-elect him.
3-"He’s highlighting his difficulties with key constituencies, like women and older voters, by wondering out loud why they’ve forsaken him, rather than offering a message to bring more of them back into his camp.

Info was very similar to what Rudy tried to peddle this wk
2-"U.S. intelligence agencies warned the White House last year that President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani was the target of an influence operation by Russian intelligence, according to four former officials familiar with the matter.

2-"Defiant as ever about the coronavirus, President Donald Trump on Monday turned his first campaign rally since contracting COVID-19 into a full-throated defense of his handling of the pandemic that has killed 215,000 Americans, joking that he was healthy enough to plunge
3-"into the crowd and give voters ‘a big fat kiss.’ There was no social distancing and mask-wearing was spotty among the thousands who came to see Trump’s return to Florida. He held forth for an hour, trying to get his struggling campaign back on track with just weeks left
