I didn’t find out until around 3 PM this afternoon that I wasn’t going to get to go. Something unexpected came up at the last minute that derailed my plans – yet again – for this weekend.
As for the speech, there was nothing really noteworthy about it. I’ve already seen Trump make the same pitch several times now. I was watching the live broadcast on CNN when I swear that I heard someone shout out “White Power” which made me wonder if Jim Giles had made it from Jackson. The Washington Post is reporting that Olaf Childress was there handing out literature.
The most interesting part of this event can be summed up in two photos:
A small plane, the kind you would see at the beach, tows a banner that reads: TRUMP 4 HIGHER TAXES. JEB 4 PREZ.
Trump’s Boeing 757 circles Ladd-Peebles Stadium twice, tilts its wing toward the side, as a crowd of 30,000 people roar their approval.
