Now that Twitter is burying any Donald Trump tweets that directly call for violence or threaten violence, Trump is trying to be a bit more creative and subtle about getting his message across. The trouble is, Trump and his handlers aren’t particularly good at being creative or subtle.
Last night there was a large protest outside the White House, which ultimately led to the White House being briefly locked down, but nothing ugly came of it. Yet now Trump has decided to tweet this in response: “The professionally managed so-called ‘protesters’ at the White House had little to do with the memory of George Floyd. They were just there to cause trouble. The Secret Service handled them easily. Tonight, I understand, is MAGA NIGHT AT THE WHITE HOUSE???”
It couldn’t be much more clear that Trump is calling upon his racist supporters to show up to the White house tonight and get violent against any protesters who might be there. As Palmer Report has explained, the worsening deterioration of America isn’t helping Trump. Instead, every time he makes things worse in this country, his numbers go down. This is all a losing strategy for him. He either doesn’t understand that or he’s too far gone to care. But he sure seems to be enjoying the sadism on his way down.
