Yah. But i don’t want to protest on a nice day. I want to hang with my kids. That said, i don’t want to protest on bad days either so

I also think the fact that people actually got prosecuted for 1/6 has his supporters second guessing whether it’s worth going to jail for this guy (who definitely doesn’t care about them - or anyone besides himself for that matter).

I heard there are actually thousands if not tens of thousands of patriots there protesting, but the fake news media is just lying about the numbers like they always do. Any photos showing the lack of protestors are actually edited personally by George Soros. /s

It’s sad to see how an obsolete corrupt politician still lives rent free in people’s head. Meanwhile we have our own politicians in NYC, lowering our quality of life, yet they never seem to get criticized. The masses are too easily distracted.

In which case, perhaps the media should stop covering those protests. I've seen far bigger protests at City Hall that struggled to get any press coverage.

Stop coverage? It’s trump related- so it will be CNN headlines for at least the next 2 weeks. Nothing else important going on in the world except trump protest.

Sounds good to me. Biggest block party ever is definitely warranted IMHO if he actually gets convicted and goes to jail. As a convicted felon he'd be barred from office and that would be an awesome reason to celebrate.

Democrat or Republican I don't get why anyone would think of supporting Trump now. The man is clearly mentally ill and unfit for office. Only his most diehard, fascist followers are left now.

Even if he is not convicted on this he will not land in the Oval Office again. This whole farce of a presidential campaign is just to line his pockets one more time and to puff up his ego. No way he will get the nomination. The Republicans have got to know what a disaster it would be.

They could run a donkey up against Trump and the donkey would win. Except for his diehard followers, and they are fewer by the day, everybody loathes him and thinks he's crazy. Nobody wants him near the nuclear launch codes at this point. The very thought is just alarming.

Shocking

There's so much gassing up about a hoard of right wingers descending, like the "planned day of hate"; it turns out to be a fucking hoax; and there's zero reflection about any of it or what the motivations of those promoting these ideas might be.

But summer 2020 vandalism and arson stretching from Union Square into Chinatown (including residential blocks), Fordham Road, all over the city? Probably millions of dollars of damage in Midtown?

Just "burning the Target", as some goblin described it here...140 cities, one Target each. I guess. "Peaceful but fiery" and virtuous. You still see the remnants walking through Lower Manhattan, all the disgusting graffiti.

Fuck the media and fuck the political agents who own the coasts to an absurd extent, who mysteriously dominate every election from the top to the bottom of the ballot, even when they run candidates that would probably be better suited to a shitty NGO internship (or a mental ward) than public office...but still have to gaslight about a big scary oppositional bogeyman in blue America to leverage power. It's disgusting. It's not even QAnon levels of conspiratory, it's just openly mendacious and stupid.

nonlawyer t1_jd4bkcu wrote

What?

Trump got the date wrong because he doesn’t know when the indictment will drop. No one does except Bragg’s office, unless it leaks.

And an indictment isn’t really a “verdict,” it’s an indictment.

Trump isn’t playing 5D chess he’s just kind of an idiot
