.@realDonaldTrump on his loyal supporters:"I could stand in the middle of 5th avenue and shoot people and I wouldnât lose voters."— Jeremy Diamond (@JDiamond1) January 23, 2016
Statement was taken out of context. He was joking, and the Iowa crowd laughed.
Sadly, he’s right....
I heard him essentially saying that support was great but that they need to get out and caucus or it’s worthless.
pulled? why? they don’t want the truth now?
Which Trump feed...there are many all claiming to be his official feed. Remember he says he pays just $3.00 to run many....and he does as well as his followers claiming to be him.
@realDonaldTrump is the one and only.
>>I understand that Trump was joking. Nonetheless, if I were a Trump supporter, I would be offended by this. He has basically called you sheep who will follow their shepherd without thought.<<
Trump supporters are not offended by that conclusion. One thing about Trump; he knows his crowd.
Posted and pulled. I guess all we have to go on is multiple news sources.
He didn’t tweet it. It was a joke in a speech.
IMO his intent is to jerk the media around some more: draw out and defang their ‘megalomaniac’ meme.
Cruz might actually have more support now if he fanboys spent as much time actually promoting him as they do obsessing over Donald Trump’s Twitter feed.
>>This won’t work, either... NOTHING WILL (which was his point).<<
And from your “NOTHING WILL,” his point was dead on accurate.
How do you confirm that?
What a bunch of lemmings his supporters are...
We aren’t attacking Trump on this.
Trump supporters are attacking the messengers. We are defending the messengers (now multiple news sources have the story, not just the tweeter).
Trump is ridiculing you, not me. I agree with him on this point.
Wasn’t a tweet. CNN reported it
Sioux Center, Iowa (CNN)Donald Trump boasted Saturday that support for his presidential campaign would not decline even if he shot someone in the middle of a crowded street.
“I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters,” Trump said at a campaign rally here.
After the event, Trump declined to answer when asked by CNN to clarify his comments.
The GOP front-runner has repeatedly pointed to the loyalty of his supporters, many of whom tell reporters and pollsters that almost nothing could make them change their mind about voting for Trump in the presidential race.
And the butts of the joke are defending him. Let that soak in for a while.
Post #105 and others. That one is Trump’s own website.
It’s the same as our own handles here. How do we know for sure that caww and SamAdams76 are tied to just that one person and only one person. Can I be sure you don’t have your sister using your handle and pretending to be you? What if you post also under a different handle here? No way to know for sure. What if I was to say that caww was my other handle and that I am using both to post here? There would be no way for anybody to disprove it unless they went to Free Republic and pulled our personal data.
Yes. it says that too, but so much more. I can hardly believe the number of lemmings running behind him. Our nation is in grave danger from every direction.
He’s right because his voters are kool-aid drinkers. And he knows it. That’s what makes him so dangerous.
