Is it because instead of his much (self) vaunted rallies for 20000- 30000 people he now rallies in front of 2000-5000! Funny how he never bangs on about crowd sizes now.
I'd love to believe that to be true, but is it based on figures or is it just *ahem... choke* Fox News-style scurrilous implication by rhetorical leading question?
Shameless huckster Sean Hannity's "Mueller Crime Family?" piece, and others he did on the Clintons and Comey, spring to mind. I can't watch more than a few moments of such "journalism" because it fills me with homicidal rage - that they'd do it in the first place, that so many people believe it without question, and that that's exactly the reason why they do it in the first place.
His over-exaggerated rally numbers were widely called out by fact checkers when he was claiming 10s of thousands of people attended and fire Marshall’s called him out on the venue sizes. This is why Trump no longer shouts about size because then it can’t be fact checked.
Reading this morning there’s yet another taste (ifyoupardon the pun) of Trump’s wilful destruction of anything with former President Obama’s name on it. In this case it’s Michelle Obama’s campaign for better meals in schools which provided for fresh fruit and vegetables to be offered. Trump now wants to roll out a new standard for what the children of the US gets fed and out goes fresh and in comes fries, burders and pizza. All the kind of junk food that this man child likes to gorge on.
