"You don't get paid unless you stay fifteen minutes."

I am Tom Joad's Complete Lack of Surprise: "You don't get paid unless you stay fifteen minutes."


See, you gotta have skin in the game. Unlike socialism Soros, who pays no matter what.

"These are dangerous people who are willing to burn every American institution to the ground," he said.

Said the guy who has been trying to undermine the voting system in the US for the last 7 years.

So same deal as his hookers?

Maybe they didn't understand the unhinged screaming in German and got bored.

You can only go see the same show so many times before you know all the lines by heart and it gets boring

A Trump rally is mostly about the party in the parking lot.

Does hiding in the bathroom count towards to total 15 minutes?   Also, I was there with Heywood Jablowme and Gene Masseth.  I'm supposed to pick up their cash too.

Crazy to think that even these people might get tired of hearing him whine about the same thing over and over again.

You gotta love it when the myth of how they've built up TFG, where he's photoshopped over Stalone's 80's Rambo body and crap come barreling headlong in to reality when they get to see his fat ass slosh on stage to fart in a mic for hours.

Is it too much to hope for that maybe some of his fans are getting tired of the schtick?

He's been serving the same word salad for seven years.

"Play 'Freebird!' "

When your nazi rally is run like a timeshare sales event.

The best case scenario may be that they remain enthralled by him, but become disenchanted enough that he no longer motivates them to get off their fat asses and vote.

I thought it was like a church service, it's all about the community and the comforting ritual of berating other people and blaming them for all your problems.
 
2022-10-03 1:05:54 PM  
Why is he permitted to hold these Nazi/Sedition rallies in the first place, railing against the government he was supposed president of.

It's hard to choose a campsite though. Cross burning, lynching, rolling coal, so many choices.

Attendees began leaving the venue after only 15 minutes as Mr Trump launched into a list of his familiar grievances, Detroit Free Press reporter Paul Egan said in a tweet.

Not surprised.  People do not like complainers, even if you share their point of view.  It works on a small scale -- like if you have a friend, acquaintance, or co-worker who you otherwise like but who just does nothing but complain.  Even if the complaint is valid, when that's basically the only thing they do -- just output negativity constantly -- you get tired of that pretty quickly.  And that's what's happening at a large scale.  Trump isn't offering a way forward (even if it's completely fictional or impossible).  All he's doing is b*tching about stuff.  No one wants to pay whatever stupid price his rallies cost to just listen to a guy whine and complain, especially when they've heard it all before.  They want to hear a plan, or suggestions, or just general "we're gonna do this!" type talk, even if the stuff you're saying you're going to do is awful (which MAGA stuff is).

His first campaign was looking forward -- "build the wall", "lock her up", "jobs are coming back to your sh*thole deserted town that [industry] forgot about 20+ years ago".  His second campaign at least still had some of that...sorta.  Now? 100% rear view mirror.  Even the deplorables won't support that, not like they did before.  He's going to end up with MAGApathy.

Trump rambles for an hour.  I have trouble listening to someone I am interested in for 20 minutes.

It won't change them voting for all the slimy bastards who go out of their way to appease him. Until a while after he's dead and people talk and financials get leaked will the extent of the graft be known.

Well... mastriano held a super Jesus rally in Harrisburg last week and only 50 people showed up.
🤷‍♀

Wow you mean nobody wants to sit there and listen to him belt out his tired as greatest hits that he has been going on about since 2015? Might as well just get him a gig as an of the strip lounge act in Vegas.

They'll still vote for it.  But the excitement of sticking it to the libz fades once you have to hear the droning sock puppet repeat his bullet points for the 76th time.

They want the cruelty, not the speech.  Or, at least not the same speech.
 
2022-10-03 1:10:51 PM  
Cuz It takes a leaking pair of Depends 15 minutes to stank up a whole arena
- if you're a strapping virile butch-lord like TFG, of course.

He's gotta have some cover story for why he is still consuming from all his affiliated PACs. Each one of those events probably requires 10s of million$ of dollars to put on. Finding the right Drumpf-owned companies to reimburse is no small task.

haha good one oldfarthenry

Q: What does a Trump rally smell like?
A: Depends....
 
2022-10-03 1:13:58 PM  
I love the way they bait you with the headline and then gently ratchet you down to reality:
"People leaving Trump rallies in droves!"
"Well, we got video of some people leaving a Trump rally."
"Well, a reporter SAID he saw some people leaving a Trump rally."
"Well, actually, it was on guy taking a whiz, but nevertheless............"

I am satisfied that he can't  fill a 6600 seat arena.  KInda shows that Trump is toast.

Not just trump. A lot of hard core super Jesus evangelical Republicans are also having a very difficult election cycle.
Turns out that outlawing abortion was an incredibly bad idea.

Across the board too. Not just trump.
Republicans are not doing well this election cycle, and not even gerrymandering is the lock solid win the GOP thought it would be for them.
People are mad as hell about outlawing abortion.

I've seen plenty of videos of Trump speaking at supposedly packed to the brim rallies where entire sections of the arena were completely empty.

But..but..but Biden couldn't even get six people to attend a rally! Derp derp

Because even if they're not attending his rallies (or leaving early), they're still willing to vote for him if he runs. And they're happy to keep voting Republican down ballot, too.

This isn't difficult to understand. I wish there was a direct correlation between the number of people who attend his rallies and the number of people who happily and enthusiastically continue to vote for fascism, because that would mean we wouldn't have to worry about Republicans again for a long time... but that's not what's happening. Even as their numbers decrease, they have managed to work their way into our institutions to hold onto their power, to choose the voters they want and to keep the people they don't want voting out of the process. Yes, at some point, their numbers will become small enough to make even that unsustainable... but we're talking decades before that happens, not the next election cycle or two.

Ex president Donald Trump, whiner of Mar-a-Largo, Florida
Made his town hall debut last night
He came well prepared, but unfortunately his presentation
Was not up to contemporary professional standards
His voice lacks the range of faux rage
Necessary to make it consistently interesting
Full time consideration of another endeavor might be in order

"88" would be appropriate.

Being one of the many paid seat fillers must be excruciating.
