Can't be the White House, due to Hatch Act. No one but the Pres & Pence can legally show up.

Actually, if Gettysburg is federal property, that's out - too.

But I've got to ask:

"Does anyone believe Trump can add up "four score & seven years"?

I'm not sure. The White House is tempting to Donnie.

We taxpayers would be stuck with the bill for hosting a Trump political event.
It would be illegal. Hatch Act violation.

"Let's do 'X'."
"Sir, that's against the law."
"Oh, okay. What are our other options?"

"Let's do 'X'."
"Sir, that's against the law."

Makes it that much more appealing!
But when you're a Red State President, why Gettysburg? Wouldn't that symbolism alienate them? Or do they see it as the South coming back to claim victory? Do they take over the town on day three, rather than retreat?

So many questions ...

FFS, can we please vote Dunderhead Lincoln out soon?

Four score and seven hookers ago, our forefathers facepalmed a nation of imbeciles who have achieved idiocracy five hundred years early. The world will not remember the word salad I spewed here as it will be watching cat videos, but it will long remember the milk war with Canada and person, woman, man, camera, TV. Person, woman, man, camera, tv. See, I did it again? Take that.

He should do it from one of his resorts, that way he can have cheering fans (who paid thousands to be there),

I see a huge difference.

Mt Rushmore was legally classified a 4th of July address. This is a convention. I sure as hell would bring suit, if I had standing.

I can see Gettysburg being more in line with the narrative Trump likes to push about being under attack by those who want to change things.

Every time Trump steps up to a microphone, it becomes a political event.

So...let me get this straight....

Trumpy is considering to have his acceptance speech at Gettysburg? The man who believes that it is okay to fly the Confederate battle flag and to keep monuments to those who gave orders that purposely killed their fellow Americans to protect a way of life that included slavery?

The same sight were Lincoln wrote his famous speech...honoring the Union soldiers and their deeds, their sacrifices and those who gave their "last, full measure" to preserve the Union?

When I go to Gettysburg, there is a part of the battlefield where the Union forces barely held line. I go there every time. They held against the Confederate onslaught. They held against an enemy that wanted America to split, to die, to give up on its ideals and allow them to lead a life that included slavery. And those Union boys and men, fought and died where they stood. Holding the line. Almost breaking. But they held on, beat back those who would destroy America.

And this president, who supports waving the Confederate battle flag around...a flag used not in peaceful protest but as a banner to follow to kill fellow Americans...and thinks we should keep the monuments of those not only wanted to destroy America...but raised armies to kill their fellow Americans for the very purpose...wants to do his acceptance speech there?

That hallowed ground? Such disrespect. How DARE he!?!?

I was going to say, "Mr. Trump...you are no Lincoln." But honestly...the more correct thing to say is, "Mr. Trump...you are no American."

He should do it at the site of the Bowling Green massacre.

It fits.

I still cry when I think about that terrible dark event in our history. It made 9/11 and Sandy Hook look like a holiday.
