Trump is holding a pro-Trump rally in Phoenix but why? Has anyone alerted him that he won and there is no need to continue campaigning?

I'm just wondering why he is still holding these rallies....I can't think of any another politician who has done this before and I'm a little puzzled by it.

But seriously, what's the point of it? I think I would spend my time governing not taking the victory lap.

Probably so he can back someone other than McCain and get support from voters to have that person win.

The previous guy was called "Campaigner in Chief" for the same thing. I don't like the whole "it's ok though when it's our guy" thing.

Rally support and show public approval despite the media's best efforts to undermine him. He knows what he's doing, talking directly to the people.

Also, rallies and Twitter are pretty much the only ways to get his message directly to the people. Apparently, most of the MSM didn't even play his speech on the Afghanistan war strategy.

One reason is to remove Jeff Flake from office.

The other reason is to keep people focused and dedicated to draining the swamp.

If you haven't noticed, Congress has turned on Trump in literally 7 months. Rallies will hopefully get rid of the bad apples in congress so his agenda can carried out.
Link Posted: 8/22/2017 9:46:21 AM EST
Like a modern day Nosferatu, Trump draws his energy from the life force of the rally crowd.

Actually, he was the entertainer in chief. Selfie stick videos, making videos of playing grab ass in the White House, going on all th hip TV shows all the time, and hanging out with Beyoncé and Jayz.

Trumps message is constantly trashed and twisted by the MSM.

This is one way to keep his message intact.

I personally would like to see more speeches like last nights.

Trump's been doing them to show RINOs that we want 0'care gone.

Pretty sure someone else is holding the rally and asked President Trump if he would stop in and speak...

He certainly isn't being allowed to get his message out via a global hostile media so personal stops are a good way to do that I guess.
Link Posted: 8/22/2017 9:53:24 AM EST
The President is supposed to be the leader of the people.

How can he be the leader of the people if he never goes out and talks to the people?
Link Posted: 8/22/2017 9:56:25 AM EST
So what you want is for him to sit in the white house and trust the media to get his words out to the people who hired him? Maybe he should be more presidential right. Just like all the other fucking slugs who've held the job.

The previous guy had the media in his pocket for his entire tenure. Trump is hated by EVERYONE if you were to believe the media. These tours do two things, let him speak to his people without the media twisting his words and show his people that the media is full of shit and he does in fact have support.
Link Posted: 8/22/2017 10:02:51 AM EST
With the media constantly bashing him this is his way of getting his message to the people without the media spin.
I wish he would do a rally every week to set shit straight ,that would put so much pressure on the RINO's and the media their heads might explode. 



Nothing has changed for me in regards to President Trump.  TRUMP, TRUMP, TRUMP, TRUMP !!!!!!!

I agree, but his preferred method (to this point) is bullshit and completely inefficient. This guy is a media "mogul", supposedly. Where the flock is the White House media network? Where is the White House podcast? Where is the "thing" that will crush Twitter (and hopefully provide a platform that can actually have educated, well-spoken people tweek his thoughts before they go mainstream)?? Still strongly in his corner, but this amateur hour hortseshit has got to stop. Don't you even neo-media, bro-Trump??!

Years ago, Regan started the Sat. Noon Presser. Because the Media was not telling what he said, and what he had accomplished. So he went around them. And like Trump using Twitter, he was hated by the Media for it.

The same with Trump......

Obama had the dems and republicans in congress to do whatever the fuck he wanted at the drop of a hat and the media to spread his "message" however and whenever. Trump doesn't have that, or the media he has to go straight to the people so they can put whatever pressure they can on their elected officials for any hope of getting anything done.

Barry also had ZERO executive experience, all he knew how to do was campaign. As previously mentioned, he was also getting ridiculously powder puff media coverage.

Trump knows how to get shit done but is getting the polar opposite treatment by the media.

oh there you are, I wonder how long until your other CTR buds show up. Kind of hard to deliver any change when you have a congress unwilling to do ANYTHING. Perhaps you should revisit 2nd grade social studies and figure out who writes and passes laws.... hint it ISN'T the POTUS. There is only so much one can do via EO or EA.

I remember Obama catching all kinds of hate in GD for doing the exact same thing.

I think Trump does rallies because it energizes him. DC is a pretty hostile place on a good day, so getting in front of a cheering crowd of supporters probably feels pretty good after that. After he gets reaffirmed by his supporters, he returns to DC ready to do work.
