Trump Holds Rally in Mechanicsburg

Trump-MechanicsburgDonald Trump is definitely targeting Pennsylvania.

Even if you didn’t catch the recent articles about how, along with Florida and Ohio, PA is one of the GOP nominee’s must-win states, you would know it from Trump’s frequent visits to the commonwealth.

Another such event occurred last night in Mechanicsburg, a suburb of Harrisburg.

Candy Woodall of the Patriot-News put the attendance at about 3,500 while the candidate asserted that an additional 5,000 had to be turned away. Carley Mossbrook and Steve Esack of the Morning Call reported 3,156 in the gymnasium and another 1,371 in the school’s auditorium.

“Republicans haven’t won in Pennsylvania in 28 years. This year will be different,” he pledged.

While there Trump made national news for his comments about Bernie Sanders’ decision to endorse Hillary Clinton.

“He would’ve been a hero,” the GOP nominee said. “But he made a deal with the devil. She’s the devil. He made a deal with the devil.”

Trump has now made two stops in the Keystone State either during or immediately after the Democratic National Convention, which was held in Philadelphia.

  1. It’s kinda funny Trump went there.

    He likes to rip off mechanics … and welders …. and architects …. …. ….

  2. Agreed, Pat.

    The fun part of this will be watching that POS self-destruct. It has already started.

  3. Trump seems to know he is in over his head. When it comes right down to it – he is just your garden-variety insecure bully. He is a guy who was born on third base and thinks he hit a triple.

  4. Don’t worry, Deborah. The people that Trump has alienated will turn out in record numbers for Hillary. She is already crushing him with voters who have at least half a brain.

  5. Stay away from Pennsylvania….I never like Trump because i am disability. Trump makes fun of disability. He do not respect. I hate him so much.

  6. Bono makes a good point about Trump already sowing the seeds of a Constitutional Crisis. With what seems to be a daily “Trump said what?” headline, one wonders if he truly isn’t trying to throw the fight. Surly he stands to make more money and fame by losing the election and holding court in the Peanut Gallery. (e.g. Sarah Palin) Sadly, it is our democracy which will pay the price of being dragged through the mob’s kangaroo court. Is it rigged? Of course it is! The Founding Father’s knew dangers of pure democracy and installed safeguards against the demagogue.

  7. I went to a Trump rally just to check it out once- scary stuff…
    Well I’m an uppity white liberal elitist however.

  8. By the time November arrives, the whole world will see that Trump is a two-bit grifter fraud.

  9. Lying Sleazebag Donald Trump is already preparing for his loss by claiming the election will be rigged in an attempt to create a constitutional crisis.

  10. Ricky-

    As opposed to the toothless white trash at Trump’s rallies?

    BTW, how come Toomey wasn’t at the rally?

  11. You ever seen a trump rally? Everyone is there. More diverse than Hillary rallies full up uppity white liberal elitists.
