Trump To Launch “Victory Tour” In States He Won

Bloomberg reports:

President-elect Donald Trump will begin a “Thank You Tour” on Thursday in Cincinnati, replicating the arena events that powered his surprise campaign, three of his transition officials said. The Republican has credited his rallies as a central component of his victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton. The events at times drew tens of thousands of people and were often broadcast live and in their entirety on cable news networks, affording him a practically unfiltered channel to voters. His post-election tour may take him to “swing states we flipped over,” George Gigicos, Trump’s director of advance, told reporters on Nov. 17. Trump won Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Florida, all states President Barack Obama won twice. He corrected reporters who called it a “victory tour.” “‘Thank you tour,’ Gigicos said. “It’s not a ‘victory tour.’”

    Yuk. Not much modesty there. Basically, he’s going to klan rallies.

    But hey, he’ll never visit DC. Hell, he might not even stay in DC much even after January 20

    • Stephen Elliot Phillips

      Staying in the house thats paid for by the govt doesnt help donalds business. Having the govt pay for mar-o-shithole and chump tower?
      priceless

    • Librarykid

      He won’t visit here, but we will have to put up with the crowds of his supporters who come for his inauguration.

      • Todd20036

        I’m staying home. And I doubt too many of them will venture into Dupont Circle.

        Those who do are going to see that gay people exist. Horrors!!

    • GayOldLady

      There’s just way to many of the “Others” in DC.

      • Todd20036

        Indeed. We outnumber “them”.

        In fact, in Dupont, there aren’t too many people who aren’t at least accepting of “others”, including white christian men

    • Todd20036

      I need to schedule one of those anyway. Why not have it January 20?

      • another_steve

        Great idea. You can start your pre-inaugural celebrations by doing the prep for the colonoscopy the night of the 19th.

        What better way to celebrate Trump’s victory than by sitting on the bowl and crapping your brains out.

    • Ray Butlers

      But a colonoscopy serves a purpose. And you can sleep through it.

    He has time for this, however, his response to radicalized supporters committing violence against minorities is a stern look at camera and a “Stop it.” Wonderful.

      As I stated below, Clinton carried Hamilton County by 10 points, so I’m guessing, yes.

    • JCF

      Be very careful. All these states have Rethug governors, who will undoubtedly order their cops to protect Drumpf from even SEEING any dissent….

  • Tom

    My prediction: nowhere near the crowds he garnered during the campaign will show up, now that the race is over. What a dumb waste of money and time!

  • Acronym Jim

    Clinton beat Trump by 10 points in Hamilton County where Cincinnati is located. This should be good.

    I can’t believe I have to look at this whiny little bitches face for 4 years.

    To the 51% of college educated women who voted for this asshole-what the fuck were you thinking.

    • Martin

      51% of voting college educated women.

      • Todd20036

        College educated women who didn’t vote should demand a refund on their education.

        It didn’t take.

        • Martin

          I heartily agree.

        • Moebym of the Rebel Alliance

          They should’ve voted to honor the women who died or were ostracized for fighting for women’s right to vote. But they didn’t care – they just didn’t like any of the candidates. *shrug*

      • GayOldLady

        Or the 57% of White people who voted for Trump. Or the 52% of men who voted for Trump. Or the 52% of 45 and older who voted for Trump. Or the 62% of white Gen X’ers who voted for Trump.

        And according to CNN Exit polling College educated women voted for Hillary 51%-44%, but white non-college educated women voted for Trump 61%-34% and white non-college men voted for Trump 71%-23%.

        Gender only:

        Male 52-41 Trump
        Female 54-41 Hillary

        Among Latino’s, AA’s and all other minority groups Hillary cleared the board.

        How I read the election results is that most men and some women were experiencing a major case of sexism when they stepped into the voting booth.

        • That_Looks_Delicious

          And ironically, many in those groups are going to be the people who get shafted the worst by Trump. For example, many of these counties in eastern Kentucky which are among the highest in the nation for percentage dependent on public assistance, and which Trump won overwhelmingly. Oh well, live and learn. If they’re capable of learning, which I’m beginning to doubt.

          • james1200

            It’s even worse that he doesn’t really deny it. He just says he’s “proud of being white”. So you can’t dismiss it as someone who’s grown out of his foolish childhood.

            I occasionally read Str8UpGayPorn, and the number of moronic gay porn performers who support Trump is dispiriting.

          • safari

            I don’t have a problem with people being proud of their heritage, but the symbol of the iron cross and two lightning bolts a la the SS aren’t exactly subtle with their broader meaning.

          • james1200

            The phrase “proud of being white” is code for white supremacists, who don’t have the balls to admit that’s what they are, which is why it’s problematic. Anyway, what is there to be proud of because two white people had sex and they had you? It’s not a fucking achievment. In fact, it’s almost always people, like Dylann Roof, who have nothing else in their life, that latch on to being white as an accomplishment in itself.

            Great miniseries, deeply creepy, well acted. But with one of the most cheesily filmed endings of any movie I’ve ever seen. (The concept of the ending wasn’t bad, the execution was laughable.) Couldn’t help but think, “God, I sat through 4 hours to get to THIS?”

    OK, so Hillary is way outpacing him in the popular vote. He got around 46 percent of the 54 percent who bothered to vote, and apparently more than half of them were actually voting against Clinton more than they were voting for Trump. His base may be loud and obnoxious but it isn’t nearly as large as he’d like to think.

    I can only guess that looking at candidates for the jobs he needs to fill on his team is no fun – he knows that some of his choices may not kiss his ring – and there is too much criticism of him in the news ……. but the “basket cases” will welcome another chance to get in fights and be rude – they currently do not care who gets appointed to what, or what will be happening to social security and medicaid, or the wall, or or any of the promises he made – topics that donald needs to avoid until after the coronation. With luck, the media will recognize the rallies as the diversionary tactics they are, ignore them and instead keep an eye on what the pence is doing.
