Never been to a Trump rally, but a few of my crew went to the one in Fargo yesterday. Small venue (probably 7,000?) but there were tens of thousands of people outside. Lots of Jeeps, lots of flags, a ton of vendors out there too.
They said when the Star Spangled banner was sung you could hear the people outside singing it... from inside.
It raised the hair on their arms. They said the event itself was amazing... everyone happy and having a great time.
I have to ask those who see this as a bad thing... what is wrong with being patriotic and having a great time?
And the woman is correct... you are there on the scene, you go home and watch the news and it is entirely different from what you experienced.
It is no wonder more and more people don't trust the media.
Because they shouldn't.
S&F and this thread should have more action.
That it doesn't just means that the lefties on the site don't have the balls to put in their two cents on an obvious bias in a media that supports the left, almost entirely.

It is not forbidden to have fun on an event.
Whatever comes out of this event might be a problem.
Source: Hofbräuhaus in Munich, 1918. Fun event, many laughs, a relatively unknown speaker called Hitler!
Don't paint only one side of the coin!
Edit: oh and before your fee-fees hurt too much - he wasn't a fascist back then, or a Nazi, that came later after his incarceration (while writing "Mein Kampf"). Back then he was just a highly-skilled demagogue. In which he has a striking similarity to Trump, but Hitler had to use longer words, being German and .. well.. a bit less simple structured in the brain, in my opinion.
