I used to take the 8:15 into the city when I lived in Hotlanta.

As their marketing dept. used to say "It's Smarta to take Marta"

They weren't that good at their job, much like the Marta security.

RasIanI: fernt: phrawgh: fernt: RasIanI: Brian The Fist: bloobeary: This speech is also going to be all about how Biden is cheating in the election by having you people vote, isn't it?

No way he makes it through without a racist gaffe.

Agreed. How do we set up the pool?

if "I love black people," counts as racist, I'm all in.

He "loves" the uneducated too, so you're covered there as well.

/resists obvious joke

Well, when you have a history of not loving black people, lying to their faces casually, in public, to the incredulous, would definitely register as a slight borne of a racist disposition.


Once again, 14 flags on either side of the stage. This cannot be an ongoing coincidental accident. 13 would make obvious sense. 14 makes sense considering for whom they are the backdrop.

14 words: "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children."

Herman Cain spoke briefly after all!

There's a certain spacing (give or take a bit) that looks pleasant (either with some space between them, or slightly overlapped), so the number of flags is dependent on the width of the stage. Larger stage = more flags. Having the same number of flags but different size platforms is braindead, or, as you pointed out, a signal that he's really a friend of someone else.

The blank is fine, it's an easy win with the content that actually comes out of his mouth.

Yep. Look how they had to cram them in there closer together on either end. 13 would have fit better at a pleasant, even spacing. Looks like it was very important, for someone, to manage getting 14 in there.

I can't tell for sure, but it looks like prefab platforms that hold eight each, but the rear one has been purposely positioned to hide the rightmost two behind the curtain so they're completely not visible. On the other hand, the spacing of the eagles at the top of the poles isn't close to consistent, which I'd expect if this was prefab stage setup.

So many people saw it immediately
 
2020-09-25 2:34:23 PM  
Ok, what agency got told to show up and fill out those seats or face budget cut backs next year?

There simply can't be that many non-whites in ATL voting for that man.
 
2020-09-25 2:37:14 PM  
Do we know what his record delay for one of these things is?  Are we getting close?

tymothil: Do we know what his record delay for one of these things is?  Are we getting close?


Doesn't matter... The latest this is starting is about 3:20. He has a 4:05 flight back to DC to beg for donations from people with actual money at his hotel. If it gets close enough he will blow this event off for that flight.

Now officially into "late" after the first re-schedule

Looks like Ben Carson is the warm up. Because he speaks for so many in Buckhead, Decatur and SWATS
 
2020-09-25 2:48:00 PM  
He brought out Ben
 
2020-09-25 2:48:54 PM

I forgot he was anywhere in the Trump universe. DeVos gets more airtime in his administration
 
2020-09-25 2:51:40 PM  
Some local dude saying that Trump is somehow investing in black communities, comparing him to Harriet Tubbman.
 
2020-09-25 2:52:21 PM  

phrawgh: How long will it take for his handlers to whisper in his ear that he has an "emergency call."

/guessing not long



Exactly as long as it takes for the first person to ask him which specific policy that he initiated was, in his opinion, the most helpful, and specifically how.
 
2020-09-25 2:52:46 PM  

Armchair_Invective: With a name like "Trump speaks on Black Economy Empowerment," it's got to be good.

2020-09-25 2:54:17 PM  
Who the fark is this guy talking about baby genocide?
 
2020-09-25 2:54:19 PM  
Invokes and turns on its head, Tubbman's quote: "I could have freed 1000 more if only they knew they were slaves". The inference is that the 90% of the black electorate not voting for Trump are "slavish" in their thinking.

Gross.
 
2020-09-25 2:54:43 PM  
I just heard a speaker pretty much equate Donald Trump with Harriet Tubman and freeing slaves.

Yeah.  I gotta go.  Feeling a little stabby right now.

This guy must get a commission every time he mentions, in full, "Donald J. Trump"
 
2020-09-25 2:58:18 PM  
Newsflash: We've never met anyone like this guy either
 
2020-09-25 2:58:26 PM  
Your education wasn't free. OTHER PEOPLE BELIEVED in you and gave you money to go to school. They are now shaking their heads, shamefully.
 
2020-09-25 2:59:20 PM  
He says what he feels...we mistake this for racism.
 
2020-09-25 2:59:38 PM  
He can't say, "strong hands"
 
2020-09-25 2:59:52 PM  
These guys are a farking joke.
 
2020-09-25 3:00:36 PM  
That "furnace you feel" is the Flames of Hell that your flirting with, dude

BeansNfranks: I'm not sure i understand. What's the context here?


Well, be careful.  Just do not google 14 and 88 if at work.  If not, and you do not mind being watched, go right ahead there and get all caught up on racist codes.
 
2020-09-25 3:01:52 PM  
Oh, you believe in police reform? But not eliminating the police? Well, that's Biden's position - not Trump's
 
2020-09-25 3:02:31 PM  
It sounds like there's maybe 20 people top in the crowd... I'll bet, seriously, that every one of these preachers has a bigger congregation they speak to.
 
2020-09-25 3:03:01 PM  
Man is endorsing Manifest Destiny, and Trump as its captains. "God made this man President"

I had to tap out once the abortion talk started.  Can't take that particular crazy very well.
