Fetid pooh-face Donald Trump continued his reign of flappy-jawed terror at a rally in Kissimmee, Florida on August 11th, speaking to his devoted fans about God knows what. And, because his constituents are super-tolerant people, someone thought it would be totally fine to hang a Confederate flag just right of the stage.
The New York Times reports that the flag stayed up there for about an hour before being removed by local police. It was purchased just outside of the rally by a Trump supporter named Brandon Partin who was “irritated” that he had to take the goddamn thing down:
As he bundled up the flag, he said that if the man who had asked him to take it down was from the campaign, “then that might have just changed my vote.”
But in a brief interview afterward, Mr. Partin acknowledged that he said that in “the heat of the moment” and that he would still support Mr. Trump.
“It kind of upsets me a little bit,” he said, adding that he didn’t think Mr. Trump himself would have asked him to remove the flag.
He’s probably right. Donald Trump would’ve let the flag live, while flapping his jaw some more about how Obama founded ISIS. The bloated Oompa-Loompa has been advised to tone down his rhetoric and soften his approach. Clearly, he’s listening!
In an interview with Time, Trump made it clear that he’s totally fine with the way he’s been running things, thank you very much:
“I am now listening to people that are telling me to be easier, nicer, be softer. And you know, that’s O.K., and I’m doing that,” he says. “Personally, I don’t know if that’s what the country wants.”
The country wants you to go away, sir. Please just go away.
