Donald Trump: Clinton Can Only Win Pennsylvania If 'They Cheat'

Trump told a rally in Pennsylvania last night that he could lose the state, where he trails by ten or more points, only by cheating. He ranted about it. How this cheating would occur on the massive scale necessary to turn the election he didn't say. But he called on his supporters to stop it by patrolling "certain" polling places. His obvious purpose in this is to intimidate minority voters from going to the polls. Another class act from the Republican nominee.

I highly doubt this patrolling stuff is gonna happen.

At most, like 3-4 Trump supporters will show up to actually participate in this.

Trump's ego can't take actually losing at anything so he invents excuses to make himself feel better. I doubt anything crazy will happen beyond the rhetoric.

Your title is great

Yeah, more labeling...typical of the school-yard bullying mindset.

"Trump is a racist, misogynistic, xenophobe who loves Russia more than America, and is a mentally ill narcissist to boot! Anyone who supports him must be all of that and also a bunch of ignorant, deluded, and uneducated clods too."

That's American politics today. :coffeepap:

I doubt it too. It's the threat of one that would keep some voters at home rather than risk an unpleasant confrontation. That's the Trumpian hope anyway. The same idea was tried in 2012. It died on the vine after Obama supporters, mainly Afro American men, formed groups that promised to patrol the patrollers.

Sorry. Meant to say - Trump Makes Another of His Calmly Reasoned Appeals.

Complains about labelling

Labels those who disagree with him

No, merely a descriptor of a technique being used...a "term of art" so to speak.

Quite different from people saying "Anyone who supports Trump is a _________ (insert negative label here)."

Hmmm, do you think I am calling you a bully Sangha? Are you using this technique to bully people? :think::
