Hundreds of Trump supporters stuck on freezing cold Omaha airfield after rally, 7 taken to hospitals


Hundreds of President Donald Trump's supporters were left in the freezing cold for hours after a rally at an airfield in Omaha, Nebraska, on Tuesday night, with some walking around 3 miles to waiting buses and others being taken away in ambulances.

Seven people were taken to area hospitals, suffering from a variety of conditions, and there were a total of 30 "contacted" for medical reasons, the Omaha Police Department said in a statement. The Omaha Airport Authority had a slightly different figure of the number taken to hospitals — it said six were "throughout the duration of the event" and added that it could not confirm that the people were taken to hospitals because of the cold.

Twice Biden brought up the Russian bounty and twice Trump went silent.

Biden brought the matter up in both debates Trump never answered the question. And when Biden brought it up last night it was about the only time Trump was silent.

The moderator for all the rave reviews failed to push for a response.

The Republican-owned media is pretty worthless.

It's coming from inside the house!

How I feel listening to Newz readers talk about Russia and Iran tampering with the election while ignoring rampant Republican tampering and suppression.

I guess it’s pretty fitting since it’s Halloween season.

For all the work done to GOTV and oust hIM

in spite of unprecedented turnout it’s the 11th hour and the media is ramping up to downplay a Democratic victory.

After Kimmel tonight I didn’t turn from ABC fast enough and the next thing I knew I was hearing Nightline’s “story” on Pennsylvania students who apparently are now the election equivalent of Groundhog Day. Their mock 2016 election led to predictions that Hillary would lose. This year’s mock had Biden winning but by a super-slim margin.

That was followed on by a story on the unprecedented number of women of color running for congressional office –- the majority featured were black or Hispanic Republicans.

I suppose it’s a story but in 2016 many women and people of color also ran and people are turning out in droves to vote. The media focus is as narrow as the zoomed in camera angles that make it seem like he has an overwhelming crowd at Trump super spreader events.

Borat is back and funny as ever

Jimmy Kimmel tonight ... made Jimmy take off his pants you had to see it. I’m sure it’ll be on Youtube.

I have to see Borat’s new movie.

Trump did every possible thing not to get reelected and acts as if he should

He, Barr, McConnell, Graham and Republicans’ in-your-face actions have resulted in nothing for the People.

From impeachment; to the ACA; to Social Security; to the supreme court; to coronavirus; to the trade war and tax/tariffs with China; to 400 untouched Democratic bills; to embracing dictators like John Ill and Putin and turning his back on diplomacy with the UN— this man has abused the very people who might have supported him. His incessant lies, lack of civility and absence of simple courtesy as a human being put him in perpetual DGAF mode long ago.

It’s so bad he pretty likely even faked coronavirus to get out of a debate because he absolutely has nothing to offer the American people or to show for his time on our dime.

How in the world does he think this sets him up to be re-appointed?

The fact that anybody does what they do and still thinks they deserve to stick around is either crazy [he is not] or believes that they don’t have to do anything of merit because they cannot lose.

This is the real problem. The foundation they’ve built that requires a Herculean effort to oust them must be destroyed.

We will kick him out but he will never go away completely.

Even if he’s defeated in the election he will spend the rest of his miserable attention-seeking life continuing to divide the country and say inappropriate things. And the complicit media will gladly oblige.
