Trump retweets, then deletes video that includes protester shouting 'white power'
[thehill.com]

President Trump retweeted, and then deleted, a video on Sunday that included an apparently pro-Trump demonstrator shouting “white power” during protests in Florida.
-
The clip begins with the Trump supporter driving in a cart with “Trump 2020” and “America First” signs. Amid yelling, one protester yells “Raise your white voice.” Soon after, the man in the golf car shouts, “white power,” to which a demonstrator off-camera responds, “There you go, white power.”

The video, which has 3.8 million views on Twitter, also shows an anti-Trump protester shouting “F**k Trump” at the passing golf carts and calling on one of his supporters a “f***ing Nazi racist pig.”

The pro-Trump demonstrator who yelled “white power” is also shown outside of his golf cart before a protester shouts, “Get back in your cart @#$%&.” After an anti-Trump protester is moved from in front of his cart, the demonstrator drives past, and his passenger gives the protesters the middle finger.

...and now, back to denying he was told about the Russian bounty on American and UK soldiers in Afghanistan.

The Villagers turning on each other is quite the ugly spectacle.

At least there are a few anti-Trumpers in The Villages.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

There probably would be a good episode of Seinfeld in all this.

Play nice when Trump is involved?

Just wait. We'll get to witness firsthand the cyclone of poison they've prepared for us this election cycle.

The Villages is one county over from me. It's a very strange place.

Fervently pro-Trump, more golf carts than cars on the streets, massive swinger community (and STD rate to go with it). Very much an I got mine mindset.

President Donald Trump set off a "five-alarm fire" in the White House on Sunday morning after he retweeted a video of one of his supporters saying "white power," according to two White House officials.

The video remained on the president's Twitter page, where he has 82 million followers, for more than three hours because White House officials couldn't reach him to ask him to delete it, the two officials said. The president was at his golf club in Virginia and had put his phone down, the officials said.

He was too busy “defending law and order” on the golf course to be reached? Vaguely reminiscent of a certain German strongarm leader of some 80 years ago who was left sleeping by his staff because no one wanted to wake him to give him the news that the invasion had started...
