Just for the sake of comparison THIS is how a real President handles protesters in Chicago.

Gee look at that.

No name calling, no violence, no police being called to clear the building.

    I just finished watching Trump's speech live. I'll bet he planted "protestors" in his audience so he spent the first half hour of his speech talking about the protestors. Put them in prison. Arrest her! They'll have police records and it'll ruin their lives....on and on ad nauseum. He has tripled down on ramping up the violence. He loves it! It will be interesting to see what happens and it's only escalating abetted by Trump himself. I won't be surprised if someone is eventually killed.

    Just an aside, Trump's rallies in the south have been peaceful and polite. People respect the announcement that any rude comments or hate will get you ejected. And thus far, the few racist (people who dress in kkk garb) are tossed before they enter the building.

    So, it's very telling that the controversial rallies that involve violence are in cities known for thuggery. ie Chicago where a hated mayor resides.

    On the west coast they were putting a former first lady to rest beside her husband. She had to be the secret president since he was not all there for so long. She was famous for her decorum, style and grace. It must have killed Trump he was not invited. Can you imagine Melainia keeping his sickness a secret and acting as a secret president?

    The White House just hosted our neighbors from Canada. It was a beautiful event with brilliant gracious people.

    Trump would like to brag how much better his family could host events, but so far he shows his vulgar nature and that he has to lie.

    I am not surprised he would choose this time to stage a spectacular distraction. How horrible for a Trump campaign reality show to be upstaged by an old school GOP happening from the Reagan era. It spoiled what Trump has going and the momentum he has been building up. He has to look like the strong man that can do it all and save the country from the mean ones. How dare the president also be doing something with style and grace at the same time as the GOP funeral.

    Trump had to do what he could to have all the attention on him. Check out his awesome ride.

      He and his supporters are becoming more and more out of control as this campaign continues. I don't know how he's going to make it another 4 months without a serious im/explosion. If he is somehow able to do that, he then has to face Hillary for another 4 months. It's NOT going to be pretty.

    Trump Supporter To Dutch Reporter: 'Go To Auschwitz!'

    I know I don't have to post all the instances of fascist Trump supporters, but this one really hit me pretty hard.

    This came after a rally where Trump taunted protesters about going to prison for exercising their First Amendment rights, used lyrics from the song "The Snake" in his speech, and really exposed himself as a Hitler wannabe.

    Then this, said to a reporter for a Dutch publication:

    Trump's 'peaceful' revolutionary supporters: "Go to Auschwitz. Go to fucking Auschwitz." pic.twitter.com/KA7E2cCns2
    — Sakir Khader (@sakirkhader) March 13, 2016

    At this rally, police pepper-sprayed protesters outside the venue. Inside, Trump pointed out a protester and speculated that perhaps he had ties to ISIS, just days after a protester at a North Carolina rally said "next time they might have to kill protesters" because they might be ISIS.

    Corners have been turned that mean we cannot go back. There is a snake in this story, but the snake is Donald Trump, who has now sprayed his venom deep into the Republican Party. As President Obama so adeptly pointed out last night, they've created him, and he's their monster.

    Here's video of peaceful protesters being pepper-sprayed.

Unlike the clown car candidates and their supporters. $palin incited the disrespect and racism in 2008, and continues down the same path to this day, insulting the President at every turn. Trump has been nothing but arrogant, nasty, and crude during the debates and his rallies. It is such a pleasure to see our President behave like a decent, respectable person, rather than an arrogant, insulting, narcissist.

    Okay, so I'm going to go ahead and share my experience at Donald Trump's rally in Warren, MI today. We'll start with why I went. I am a firm believer in being educated on ALL candidates, not just the one you're rooting for, so Stephanie and I decided to attend. If you know me, it's no surprise that I am not a fan of Trump due to his racist, misogynist, and popularity-searching "campaign". But I try to keep an open mind, understanding that people have different views and everyone is entitled to their own. I wore a shirt bashing Trump, and Stephanie wore a pro-Bernie Sanders baseball hat. We had no intentions of causing a scene, starting any fights, or even speaking negatively towards any Trump-supporters. We stood in the crowd with everyone else, even made small talk with a few different people, asking back and forth about each other's views. A women supporting Trump even complimented our hat and shirt. This is not a post to bash all Trump-supporters. Most of the people we spoke to were very kind to us, as we were to them. Trump came out and started his speech. As hard as it was, we ignored the screams and chants of building walls and exporting citizens. We stood quietly and listened to the man speak. Every 15 or so minutes, a scene would happen where the crowd would yell about protestors and Trump would scream, "Get them out, send them out of here!" and the crowd would scream "USA, USA, USA" until the attendees who were asked to leave were escorted out. So, about 45 minutes to an hour into his speech, a group of teenage boys (who had been harassing us the entire time while we ignored their comments) screamed and pointed at us, yelling for us to be kicked out. At first we laughed it off, of course we couldn't be kicked out, we were just standing here silently. Wrong. A secret service member and a police officer were there within the minute, grabbed Stephanie and I by our arms, and started to lead us out. One of the Trump supporters we were chatting with even stood up for us, explaining that we weren't doing anything and weren't being disruptive. By now the crowd was chanting their USA run and a large portion was also booing us out. The walk through the crowd was very upsetting, being screamed at and filmed, even one man said "Go to China if you like communism so much!" (Communism?? Don't you mean democratic socialism??). But also, along the walk out, some attendees would high five us or shake our hands, and thank us for coming and supporting Bernie. It felt weird to be thanked, due to us not doing anything besides standing quietly. As the two men walked us out, one explained that if we returned we would be arrested. Stephanie quickly asked why that was. The man replied with "They don't want you here," to which she said "Isn't it a constitutional right to silently protest?" The officer replied "Not here." The rude remarks and yells didn't stop at the door, for Trump-supporters who didn't get in greeted us with just as much hatred. The walk back to my truck even included a man yelling from his car about how this was for Trump people and that we didn't belong here and shouldn't have come. This kind of hatred is what is ruining this country. To think that my right to protest was taken from me AT A RALLY, scares the hell out of me for if Trump actually became president and got that power. What else would he take away from us if he can't even stand two teenage girls standing silently at a FREE, PUBLIC, OPEN-TO-EVERYONE event? If you're thinking of voting Trump this year, please rethink your stance. This much hate belongs nowhere near the presidency.
