Trump thought biker rally crowd would resemble ‘I Have a Dream’ speech



Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump thought the crowd at Sunday's Rolling Thunder rally would resemble Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech.

“I thought this would be like Dr. Martin Luther King where people were lined up from here all the way to the Washington Monument,” Trump said Sunday at the annual Rolling Thunder rally, where thousands of motorcyclists honor U.S. prisoners of war and missing-in-action troops.

The billionaire claimed that more than half a million people attempted to attend his speech, “but unfortunately they aren’t allowed to come in.”

Trump seemed caught off guard by the size of the crowd, according to Bloomberg Politics. He suggested that many had been prevented from attending, without offering any evidence, Bloomberg noted.

When Republicans spend frivolously it brings "class" back to the White House.

Contrary to popular belief, hearing voices isn't the core symptome of schizophrenia. Schizophrenia is the inability to tell internal imaginations from external facts. Hallucinations and voices are merely the results of this mix-up.
