I guess he needs another fix for his campaign rush. He's been battered over Puerto Rico, his backed senator lost, and Trumpcare died again. Having the resident mouth breathers give full-throated adulation will be welcomed.

fark him, and everything he stands for.

So, you can make it to West Virginia for a bit of ass-kissing from and for Trumpanzees, but you can't make it to Puerto Rico for some real assistance from and for Americans?

Fark you, Trump.

Actually I'd prefer he stay away from there.  It would be perfectly Trumpian to hand out infected jars of Play-Doh.

The manufacturer of the Epi Pen is headquartered in Morgantown.  There is a joke in there somewhere I am just not sure what it is...

When it's invitation-only they really shouldn't be able to call it a town hall.

Let's see. Last week he told the nation how every citizen should stand for the anthem.

This week I think he's going to tell us all how to hold our hands when we pray.

Next month it will be how to say Merry Christmas.

It's rather terrifying to think how much of a confirmed and triple-vetted Trump suck-up you're going have to be to score an invite.

Invitation only with Hannity.  LOL that is not a town hall meeting, it is more like a klan gathering.

There are actually a number of retiree types who are so dyed in the wool with nothing better to do they travel the country just to attend these farking rallies and feel a part of something delusional.  They are kind of like Phish fans or something.....but much, much worse.

Shouldn't he be, you know, farking working?  This is enough. People are dying, but since their names aren't Donald Trump, screw 'em... let's have a Klan-lite rally because Donny needs the affirmation of people chanting his name.

Not just the invitees, the questions will have to be vetted in advance as well.  In all the years that I've worked with people from W. Virginia, they have always been exemplary at not holding anything back, even to people they like.

I certainly hope that the President will address the heroin problem since West Virginia has the highest rate of OD deaths in the country. A multipronged approach that features education, social work interventions, and economic developement should help.

He was going to have one of these meetings in southwest Missouri this summer, but since I didn't hear anything about it, I wonder if it got cancelled.  Or he decided not to leave his own time zone.

Morgantown is a college town. Home of WVU, West Virginia University. Probably the most educated, most liberal place in West Virginia. He will almost certainly NOT be welcome there.

Is that his problem?  Is it mad cow from shiatty trump steaks?  Because you know he would totally use diseased meat.

Yes I know it's CJD in humans but I'm not sure if that  would apply to trump.

I don't think there's even an idiom for how low a bar that is.  ... most comfortable stall in the Auschwitz showers, maybe?  That at least connects back to about where the political center rests in WV.

He did win the county that Morgantown was in but it was probably one of the smallest margins in the state.

Remember, once they are born, they will suffer and die just like the rest of us. Well, except for those blessed few that are born into money. They are God's chosen after all.

I just threw up in my mouth after saying that. That is, however, what most of the GOP base and leadership believes. They seem to forget the table flipping and whipping of money changers, taking care of each other and not being a total dick through life. The entire second half of the book collection just doesn't seem to exist to them, except for Letters and Revelations maybe.

That one guy was plugging his conspiracy website, so at one level it makes sense to sit where the cameras are always pointed at you. Plus you don't have to actually look at Trump's face.
