Finally, we’ve have made it another week.
Fall is right around the corner, can you believe it?
About the headline.
Never fear dear readers, I will not be re-hashing the 90 minute rally, this will just be short section.
As the News Blender covered on Thursday night, the President held a campaign rally from New Hampshire.
The rally itself, was a standard Trump campaign rally.
Bash everyone, praise those that love Trump, scream fake news.
One newish feature from last nights rally, was President Trump openly mocked a “protester” calling the man fat, telling the man, to go home and “exercise.”
Wow. Trump mocks a protester for purportedly being overweight.— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) August 16, 2019
“That guy has got a serious weight problem. Go home, get some exercise,” he says. pic.twitter.com/Nsk1RxvQMf
Right after the President mocked the “protester” he went on to say, that his political movement is “built on love.”
Incredible: mere seconds after he demeaned a protester for being overweight, one of the very first things Trump read from the teleprompter was “our movement is a movement of love.” pic.twitter.com/it5bNh75td— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) August 16, 2019
But wait there’s more.
It turns out apparently according to AP News, that the protester, was not in fact a protester at all, he is a President Trump supporter.
According to the Daily Mail’s David Martosko, the President Trump supporter is named Frank Dawson.
It seems that @realDonaldTrump called Frank Dawson, the fan who he mistakenly identified as an overweight protester. @foxandfriends will have Dawson on tomorrow. He told Fox last night: “Everything’s good! I love the guy! He’s the best thing that ever happened to this country.”— David Martosko (@dmartosko) August 16, 2019
I guess Frank should just be pleased the President refrained from telling the gathered crowd how much he’d like to punch him in the face.
President Trump called and left a voicemail apologizing to the man he mocked as overweight, a White House official says. He confused him for a protester last night in New Hampshire. “That guy’s got a serious weight problem,” Trump said. “Go home. Start exercising.”— Kaitlan Collins (@kaitlancollins) August 16, 2019
Correction: Trump did not apologize, a White House official tells me. He phoned the supporter, left him a message thanking him for his support, but did not use the words "sorry" or "apologize." https://t.co/0G32RSHI1G— Kaitlan Collins (@kaitlancollins) August 16, 2019
Another new addition to the rally, was a light show, similar to that of a UFC fighter entrance light show, prior to President Trump entering the arena. As Vox’s Aaron Rupar notes, the weird light show song intro finished before the President entered the arena.
They just did some sort of light show accompanied by AC/DC before Trump’s speech in New Hampshire … but oddly he didn’t come out until after it ended pic.twitter.com/o0i4fKMOlT— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) August 15, 2019
Twitter user Woke Dystopia has a longer view of the weird light show.

Onward with the tweets.
So far for Finally Friday, the President has tweeted 4 times and re-tweeted, 6 times.
Thank you Rudy! https://t.co/u0InDTYA9f— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 16, 2019
A great evening, with incredible people, in New Hampshire! https://t.co/XvqQCgorIW— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 16, 2019
Thank you to my good friend Chuck Canterbury for 16 years of service to the Fraternal Order of Police and our great men and women in blue. You are an incredible patriot!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 16, 2019
Congratulations to Patrick Yoes for his election as National President of the great Fraternal Order of Police. Together we will fight for our incredible Law Enforcement Officers!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 16, 2019
Shorter Rudy: it’s a cult.
The lack of morning tweets, might be because:
According to the pool report, Trump started his day at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, NJ.— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) August 16, 2019
This is Trump’s 222nd day at a Trump golf club and 290th day at a Trump property as president.
He must be done golfing.
This post will be updated within reason.
This is an Open Thread.
HAPPY FRIDAY Y’all.
