In light of today’s white supremacist terror incident in El Paso, let’s revisit this moment from a trump rally in Florida from a few months back, in which trump laughs off a comment from someone in the crowd yelling “shoot them!” about immigrants, and follows it up with a joke.
trump lies. About everything. Even when there is video or audio proof that shows that he is lying.
The most recent, glaring example of this is his recent attempt to distance himself from one of his racist rally crowds (this one in North Carolina) chanting “send her back!” – in reference to Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, who is a favorite target for trump.
The day after this disgusting, fascistic and racist display happened, trump attempted to gaslight the nation once again, and said that he had started speaking faster in order to discourage the chanting. As you can see in the video, trump does not do this. He pauses and allows the crowd’s chanting to continue.
