Tuesday night in Phoenix Arizona, US President Donald Trump hammered the “fake news” media and defended his comments on the Charlottesville violence, re-reading his earlier statements at a rally to show you how damned dishonest these people are.”
“For the most part these are really, really dishonest people,” President Trump told a rally of 19,000+ people at the Phoenix Convention Center. “They are bad people.
“I really think they do not like our country. I really believe that.
“I don’t believe they are going to change and that’s why I do this,” President Trump said. “The only people giving a platform to these hate groups is the media itself and the “fake news.”
“If you want to discover the source of the division and our country, look no further than the fake news and the crooked media, which would rather get ratings and clicks than tell the truth,” President Trump said.
Arizona’s 2 GOP Senators, Jeff Flake and John McCain, boycotted the rally, and were called out by our President, as he encouraged voters to lobby them to support repealing and replacing Barack Obamacare.
“One vote away,” Trump said, hinting at McCain. “I won’t mention any names. Very Presidential.
“And nobody wants me to talk about your other Senator, who is weak on borders, weak on crime,” he added, in a reference to Senator Flake. “So, I won’t talk about him.”
President Trump asked the crowd: “I am curious: Do the people in this room like Sheriff Joe?”
The question sparked loud cheers and chants of “Pardon Sheriff Joe.”
“So, was Sheriff Joe convicted for doing his job?” he asked. “He should have had a jury.
“But you know what? I will make a prediction,” President Trump said. “I think he’s going to be just fine, OK?
“But I won’t do it tonight, because I don’t want to cause any controversy.
“Is that OK? All right? But Sheriff Joe can feel good.”
He also bashed “the obstructionist Democrats” and vowed if “we have to close down our government, we are building that Wall” on the southern US border with Mexico. “Let me be very clear.
“The Democrats in Congress, who oppose the border Wall and stand in the way of border security, you are putting all of America’s safety at risk.”
Our President pointed to his accomplishments so far in the Oval Office, noting NKorean dictator Kim Jong Un might have renewed respect for the US in light of their oral showdown over Guam in recent weeks.
“I respect the fact that I believe he is starting to respect us,” President Trump told the crowd. “I respect that fact very much.
“And maybe, probably not, but maybe something positive can come about.
“They won’t tell you that,” he added, referring to the media. “Maybe something positive can come about.”
Before the rally, thousands of protesters lined the streets outside the Phoenix Convention Center, leading police to cordon them off across the street as supporters entered into the venue.
Demonstrators shouted that those entering the venue were taking a “Walk of Shame,” while some of the President’s supporters smiled and waved back.
The unruly protesters including a group of black clad Antifa’s were dispersed by police in full riot gear with smoke, tear gas and rubber bullets.
Mr. President, Drain the Swamp!
