28. bandage - like tape across the knuckles

Illegal in the NHL, for instance.

If you punch someone, the tape catches and rips the skin on their face.

60. funny, sad, but true story

I speak some Italian, and was practicing a bit with a native born Italian friend while we were grocer shopping. This fat, ugly guy comes up and yells at me to go back to Mexico if I want to speak Spanish. And I and my friend are both about as "white" looking as they come. The stupidity of these MAGAts is truly amazing. God only knows what they would do is someone spoke French around them

63. They've called ICE to report Native Americans speaking Navajo

and ICE has detained many US citizens who were even born in the US but are nonwhite or speak a second language.

Trump probably spoke German with his grandparents. Supposedly Barron speaks Slovenian.

Who wears a baseball cap and looks at their phone during the pledge, though? And does the dude in the hideous shirt think that he looks military by saluting? Ironic that the shirt has lady liberty on it given that he is at an anti-immigrant rally.

30. I remember when Nancy Reagan was addressing a crowd and started out

with an appreciative comment about “all these beautiful white faces” in the audience. And then she realized how that might look, and quickly added “and black faces” (although I suspect she was right the first time, considering the composition of a majority of Reagan’s supporters).

For those of you back East, just a reminder, Western States are really large geographic areas. So Tucson (closest large AZ population center) to El Paso is at least five hours, one way. Phoenix is an a additional two hours.

It boggles the mind!

I love the 2 people in the back that, disrespectfully, leave their MAGA hats on during the National Anthem. In my opinion, that's a far greater affront than kneeling during that song.

56. I have been at events (most often concerts)

where the Fire Marshals have halted the proceedings, announced that the venue was over-capacity and that for everyone's safety, they were shutting it down. I always thought that was extreme until 2003, when a fire broke out at a concert for Great White in Rhode Island due to pyrotechnics that went horribly awry and 100 people died and over 200 were injured.

So when Fire Marshals do an estimate of crowd size, they're generally bang on.

If you are still supporting dRumpf and his racist and alternate reality, supported by many more lies and fabrications than facts....you are supporting a cult, and nothing more.

You don't care that your idol is a disgusting pervert in every sense of the word..you don't care that he lies openly and continually. You have fox cable and right wing propaganda pushing his lies and deceitful ambitions and directing his failed and unAmerican agenda. You belong to a cult. You are the modern day "NAZI" German citizen. You embarrass yourself and your fellow citizens who wear your ignorant shame.

Be careful of the koolaide you drink.
