Little girl in a new Pro-Trump ad: "Thank you, President Trump, for letting us say 'Merry Christmas,' again."

It’s a legal fund disguised as a campaign fund.

Are there American antecedents for the sort of cult of personality Trump is building for himself? https://t.co/X3jXNWSK4b

I was *just* listening to a podcast that features Jones sermons, both in Indiana & Guyana. The energy & devotion he was able to generate by violating norms, making his audience complicit in the transgressions, was so spooky and on-the-nose.

Well, it’s a gift, of sorts. Although I don’t think it’s one Trump actually shares — he certainly riles people up at those rallies, but it’s a self-selected bunch of angry racists eager to feed on each others’ negative energy. As in all aspects of his career, he’s a user, not a generator.
On the positive side, Trump’s too much of a physical coward to kill himself. So, in the ever-Trumpian “second time as farce” mode, worse we’re liable to witness is an all-networks media meltdown where he demands — fruitlessly — that his ‘loyal fellow patriots’ use their Second Amendment ‘rights’ to TAKE AMURKKA BACK from the libtards and luzers.
After which, his most trusted Secret Service agents tenderly lead him off-stage, for delivery to a “secure location” with lots of gilded accessories… and doors that lock on the outside.
