That’s a sight, I have to admit, I never thought I’d see. Gave me s chill.
do you think Secret Service Agents have had more fun with any other President?
I'm not a big NASCAR fan, so maybe what this DU poster thinks of those who are doesn't apply to me. This lifted from a thread over there about the President's visit to Daytona.
"Unfortunately, its an event dominated by racists who are cheering the leader of the pack.
Trump is just a another demagogue who shares the same attributes as Hitler. In Germany it was the Jews who were the blame for German's failures, today its the Blacks and Hispanics. The White racists are dominated by the lower educated people who have failed to equip themselves to thrive in today's economy and blame their plight on the minorities who will soon be the majority. Trump is their man and he has proven it by giving the highest civilian honor to one of the most powerful disseminators of racism in our times.
They are going to be caught in a two edged sword; no talents to survive and soon to in the minority. Also it is not surprising the many of these people have been convinced by religious charlatans that the end of the world is at hand. It is nothing new. Their ilk have been predicting it as being emanate for the last 2,000 years."
These folks on DU are like caricatures of crazed liberals. I've been over there a few times; it's the same old tired tropes, over & over.
I hear the same sort of things from some of my liberal friends. Not all. These are intelligent educated people. Most just admit they personally dislike Trump for his personality & demeanor, and resent the GOP benefitting from his popularity, because they prefer more liberal policies: more progressive taxation, unrestricted abortion, gun control, LG...BLT "rights", a smaller military, etc.
But some are rabidly anti Trump claiming racism and corruption and "pawn of Putin" whenever they discuss politics. They are like schizophrenics with their delusions of being Jesus or the government is spying on them or whatever they have fixated on. They really do sound and appear to be mentally ill, harping on the same ideas over and over and over, with no evidence to support their claims and despite material evidence to the contrary.
"Racist" is all the left knows to call anyone who disagrees with them. Against illegal immigrants? Racist! Are you for ICE and law enforcement? Racist! Against abortion after birth? Racist! Against free college, free healthcare, universal basic income? Racist! Against grown men going to the restroom with your daughter? Racist!
I'm glad he made the appearance at Daytona. Seeing Trump and the First Lady in person had to be thrilling for most of the race fans. He is, after all, the most powerful man in the world.
I'm also relieved that Air Force 1 wasn't attacked landing or taking off. It seems like such an easy target. This has to be a high risk exposure every time the President travels. Maybe I worry for nought.
I could go on about DU but I won't - vapid tripe.
The entire airspace around Daytona was cleared, as is always the protocol when AF1 is landing/departing. If there was anything in the air that wasn't supposed to be there, it would quickly be dispatched.
I used to work in a building near the end of the main runway at Cleveland Hopkins airport. On two occasions, I got so see AF1 land. About 5 minutes before landing, there is a helicopter that circles around the approach area to the runway, looking for any threats.
they just spin the wheel-of-misfortune and pick an epithet-de-jour.
Now that’s an entrance!!
Apparently Goodyear blimp is no threat, AF1 flew right by it. I was wondering how they got some of the cool in flight footage.
My work truck used be parked at the storage units across from Hopkins. One day, I was loading my truck, and both AF1 and AF2 flew in.
I went over to an overlooking parking lot, where others had gathered.
A few minutes before they came in, a badass looking black Suburban pulled in to keep an eye on us.
If the blimp was flying, most likely there were USSS agents on board.
Not just at DU. I've perused the comments sections of a few different news websites, and the lefties are spinning it... Trump pandering to his redneck/hillbilly/white supremacist voter base.
Meanwhile, Obama claims credit for the economy. LOL What a Joker.
At least, they agree that the economy is worth taking credit for.
