    from that tweet it seems like Trump didn't pay the bill for the buses, so they just left. no shirt no shoes no mask no money, no service.

    I'll wait for a credible source, but until then, it was probably literally freezing when this (allegedly) happened/

    It was. At least nine people so far have been rushed to the ER, likely for hypothermia.

    The buses that were supposed to take people were delayed and the spot at the airport Trump held his rally at was nearly 4 miles away from the economy parking lot.

    Wind chill supposedly brought things down to like 20 to 15 degrees. I wasn't there, obviously, so I can't attest to that.

    It's also what happens when you rerun the same scandal as last election. People are only hearing another "But Her Emails...."

    As I've been trying to coin, this is the Disney remake of scandals. It's got all the same major plot points of the previous email scandal just with slight changes.

    But regardless of the outcome of the Texas or presidential election, democrats should really be smelling blood in the water there. A hard push over the next few years to empower and attract voters might cement Texas as a legitimate toss-up.

    well there goes pennsylvania,
    biden literally cant win without pennsylvania
    so if biden loses you can thank these thugs rioting over a guy charging the officer with a knife,
    im supportive of blm when its an actually unarmed guy, but this is a clear case of he was a threat to the officers lives
    and all there going to do is make otherwise liberal people in phily ( big liberal town) not go out and vote for democrats

    no chance texas goes blue with 1 drop box for 4.7 million people
    unless all of those people end up voting in person, but with covid and general laziness probably not

    Idiots have been pushing this narrative since the protests over Floyd started. Provide the evidence that it's true.

    Here's a Twitter account that was keeping track of everything as it happened, I won't link an individual tweet since the event was spread across several tweets with other information from unrelated events being reported on in between.

    And you know what happened AFTER this came out? Comey's useless press conference about Anthony Weiner's laptop that had nothing new or incriminating on it.

    Think Comey had the stupid conference the 23rd about, somewhere in there, and it dropped her average from 6 point lead to a 1 to 2 point lead.

    At least one tweet was posted with video from the aftermath of Trumps super spreader event.

    Seems safe to assume that the optics of this aren't going to help him much, that his campaign was either unprepared or too broke to make sure that buses were waiting to get people back to their cars or what not.

    i mean we already know people are willing to die for him, just look at chris christy getting covid, im glad he recovered, but the fact someone in a high risk group was flouting all social distancing to show loyalty to this man, all his followers will do the same

    Like I said, the optics of this are TERRIBLE for Trump. Either he didn't care enough to make sure his campaign had everything in place for his supporters or it's too cash strapped to actually pay for buses to get people back to their cars.

    new ABC news poll has biden leading by 17 points in wisconsin

    I mean, maybe an outlier, but with covid out of control there and trump waving the white flag(not that he really tried to stop this to begin with,) maybe not...

Although, to be fait, how do you measure when a Trump stops fucking up, to create a gradient?

    Now... none of this is saying there is a conspiracy. It’s extremely obvious why they needed to do this... But, it does change perception, even if that wasn’t the intent.
