Donald Trump and his campaign are failing on every level, to put it mildly. They’re out of money, to the point that they can’t even properly run TV ads in swing states. They have no strategy, no message, no clue, and a braindead candidate who keeps finding new ways to sabotage himself. Now Trump is trying to hold rallies in a pandemic, which are going poorly, and the Trump campaign is panicking about it.
New York Times correspondent Kathy Gray, who was covering the Trump rally, tweeted a photo and added this caption: “Crammed in crowd in the rain for trump rally in michigan. Not many masks.” Then twenty minutes later, she tweeted this: “I’ve just been kicked out of the trump rally … First for me: Trump campaign tracked me down from pics i tweeted and escorted me out.”
That’s right, the Trump campaign was so worried about the photos that Gray was tweeting of the unsafe rally conditions, it hunted her down and kicked her out of the rally. Yes, this is an evil instance of censorship. Yes, it’s abusive and overreaching. But it’s also unmistakably a sign that the Trump campaign is so deep into panic mode, they’re making stupid moves like this instead of trying to figure out a way to win the election.
