Connecticut is pure blue. So I understand. Republican party is afterthought there. So I'm told. Trump was criticized, he says so, for even campaigning there for it being considered a waste of time and resources.
I'm curious. Do you follow his rallies? For some odd reason I find them addictive. They are the one bright spot in this whole miserable season. I find myself laughing out loud by myself here at home usually three or four times by something he says, something audacious, or merely by his style. I think the people who attend his rallies are tickled as I am. He really is entertaining.
At Connecticut he begins by introducing a young man who made contact through Make A Wish Foundation. Trump jokes on himself saying, "We have a problem. He's smart, I think he could have done better." (make a better wish than seeing Trump) Trump says, "Look at him. When he comes up here you'll see, he looks like a movie star. He's in remission now. He looks great. His whole family looks great. Get up here Jockamo," (Jock-a-mō, what a handle) The lad said he wanted to meet Trump, and there he is.
Jockamo hardly says anything at all, that he supports Trump, but you can tell it's the thrill of his life. His family is on, then off. It's very short.
If you choose to see for yourself, notice he really is a good looking lad. I noticed right off that the suit Jockamo is wearing is tailored more finely than anything I ever owned. In fact, it matches exactly the suit Trump is wearing himself. And he is the only person in his family dressed up.
This makes me suspect that there is much more to the Make A Wish fulfillment than appearing onstage at Connecticut. I'll bet $10.00 (eh, I'm not a betting person, maybe I should make it $100.00 or $1,000.00) that Trump had his own personal tailor fit Jockomo for a suit. And probably a tour of his plane. I don't know. See for yourself.
By comparison, I noticed also, in another of the Graydon Parrish videos that he is wearing a suit, and his suit doesn't fit nearly as well, it wrinkles in the back and doesn't hang nearly so well and the materials are not as high quality. All this is apparent on my tiny laptop.
The rally in Connecticut is excellent. I notice Trump doing a lot more repetition. He says his line, then repeats the line more softly. It's a technique of rhetorical conduplicatio that for him is very effective. His audience accepts it as part of his schtick. He traduces the media, takes note of their doings, he points out when they turn off their cameras and chides them throughout. If you were part of the media covering him then you'd become angry at having to even be there subjected to his abuse. The audience roars its approval. He reiterates that more people are outside than allowed inside to see him. He asks the crowd, "Anyone here care to give up their place so some others can come inside?" "No!' The audience roars back. They waited for hours in sweltering heat just to be there.
Thankfully, this is the first rally I noticed Trump not wearing the requisite plain red tie. Also, I was surprised he doing this on a Saturday. I understood he takes weekends off from his rallies. Maybe it's only Sunday that he gives it a rest.
The video I watched lost its feed near the end so I switched to another. That too was cut off at the same place so I tried another, then another. I don't understand why nor how all of them lost contact but it hardly mattered. The bulk got through and they're pretty much all the same material restated with current issues inserted here and there.
