What? Are these idiots actually trying to help Trump?

Really? The Dems trying to skewer Trump for schtuping & paying off other women. Have they no memory? How about JFK & Marilyn and anyone else who was a "looker". Or Bill Clinton, who never saw an intern he didn't like. Oh, wait a minute, I remember now, Clinton paid Paula Jones $850,000 to settle her suit that they did the horizontal bop.

Yep, the Dems should hunt with this dog.


Thousands Attend Trump Rally in Waco, Texas, as Potential Indictment Looms

Rally is former president’s first large-scale campaign event as his White House comeback bid accelerates

WACO, Texas— Donald Trump, appearing before thousands of supporters at a rally here, attacked the various legal investigations he is facing, including a potential New York indictment for his role in a hush-money payment to a porn star, declaring “they have nothing.”


“From the beginning it’s been one witch hunt and phony investigation after another,” said Mr. Trump, who is making his third consecutive White House bid and has pledged to continue no matter what charges he faces. He called the “weaponization” of the justice system “the central issue of our time.”


Prosecutors in New York have considered charging Mr. Trump with falsifying business records to hide the payment to Ms. Daniels, which was made ahead of the 2016 election to keep her from going public with her story.


Mr. Trump said the payment to adult film actress Stormy Daniels wasn’t a crime and denied having an affair with her, using a slur to describe Ms. Daniels, who alleges the two had a sexual encounter.


His appearance in this central Texas city came amid the 30th anniversary of the deadly standoff in Waco between federal authorities and Branch Davidian leader David Koresh, though campaign officials denied any connection.


Mr. Trump arrived in Waco on his jet, which performed a fly-over for the crowd, and took the stage to a song performed in part by people sentenced in the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot. He stood with his hand over his heart as images of the assault were shown on video screens.


The former president also attacked his primary rival for the GOP nomination, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, calling him disloyal and reminding the crowd of the former congressman’s support for budget resolutions that would raise the retirement age for Social Security, a position Mr. DeSantis has retreated from. A spokesman for the governor declined to comment.


Mr. Trump hardly had to convince his supporters to stick with him, many of whom were given signs with the slogan Witch Hunt.


“If he’s arrested I think people will stand behind him even tighter,” said B.J. Apgar, 47 years old, who showed up hours early for Mr. Trump’s first traditional rally since launching his campaign in November.


Rick Scordo, 62, of McKinney, Texas, said he doesn’t believe the possible indictment would hurt Mr. Trump. “The prosecutors don’t have a case,” Mr. Scordo said. “If there was anything to the accusations the feds would’ve already gone after him.”


Mr. Trump’s rally remarks followed threatening rhetoric he has used in recent days. On Friday, he asked on social media why he would be charged, “when it is known by all that NO Crime has been committed, & also known that potential death & destruction in such a false charge could be catastrophic for our Country?”


Mr. Trump’s critics and defenders of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg decried the former president’s posts as inappropriate and irresponsible. The district attorney previously has said, “We are investigating thoroughly and following the facts without fear or favor.”


The evening rally was the first large-scale event since Mr. Trump announced his campaign in November. He has done a number of smaller events, while also drawing a packed crowd earlier this month in Davenport, Iowa, where he waded into hot-button issues over education and gender.


He has been eager to return to the larger stage, reveling in the spectacle and enjoying a more free-form style. He boasted Saturday that far more members of the news media registered for the event than normal.


The former president’s supporters arrived at the Waco Regional Airport sporting bright-red shirts with the Trump name on them and “Make America Great Again” hats, and with U.S. flags draped over their shoulders.


Bobbie Swinford, 48, shielded herself from the sun with a blue hat that said “Trump 2024—he will be back.” The Whitney, Texas, resident said she plans on supporting Mr. Trump as the Republican candidate because of his conservative policies and the hope that he will push President Joe Biden out of office.


“Trump stands for what America wants, he’s business savvy and he has great relationships with foreign nations, which is what we need,” Ms. Swinford said. “We’re here to take America back.”


Two of Mr. Trump’s closest GOP allies in Washington helped warm up the crowd—Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida, and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, who said Mr. Trump is the “only one true leader” of the GOP. A number of speakers criticized the U.S. aid provided to Ukraine to defend against the Russian invasion.


The Trump campaign is feeling upbeat over recent polling showing Mr. Trump solidifying his lead over the still-forming GOP primary field. Mr. Trump mainly has been attacking Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who is expected to join the race in a couple months and has begun to push back against Mr. Trump after trying to ignore the former president’s taunts. Addressing the hush-money case, Mr. DeSantis this week criticized the prosecutor but also suggested the tawdry details raised character issues about Mr. Trump.


Mr. Trump is facing a number of other legal problems, including investigations into his attempt to overturn the 2020 election results, the Jan. 6, 2021, assault on the U.S. Capitol by his supporters and a probe into his storage of sensitive documents at his Mar-a-Lago compound in Florida.
