He was jumping and screaming as though he was at a revival meeting where some snake oil preacher was "casting out the demons!" He must have had head lice as he kept massaging his head with his MAGA hat. I know he will sleep like a baby tonight! You should google the feed from this "rally event." Why is Trump stuck in campaign mode. He won but he keeps bringing up his "historical" upset. He doesn't pay attention to recent history. Recall the history lesson, "Dewey defeats Truman?" That was an upset.
    Donald Trump's win was a giant upset though. Pretty much everyone was expecting Clinton to win. Me included.

    It may have not have been the biggest upset in US history, but it was still very significant.

    I did not say it wasn't. His upset pales in comparison to the 1948 election. Did I satisfy your question as to the cult-like quality of the "rally?"

    Yes, you did. The way you interpret it, you make it sound very peculiar. That doesn't mean, however, that it WAS.

    In West Virginia, Trump Hails Conservatism and a New G.O.P. Governor

    "Mr. Justice said he would officially change his voter registration on Friday. “I will tell you with lots of prayers and lots of thinking, today I will tell you as West Virginians that I can’t help you anymore being a Democrat governor,” he said. He imagined his mother, who has passed away, saying, “Jimmy, it’s about damn time you came to your senses.”"

    West Virginia’s governor is switching parties. And Democrats just hit a new low.

    "With one politician's decision to switch parties, Democrats now hold a record-low number of governorships — and Republicans hold a record high.

    Justice will be the 34th Republican governor, tying an all-time high for the party. Republicans now control both the governor's mansions and state legislatures in 26 states. Democrats have total control in just six states."
    Thank you

    I am certain that he, Gov. Justice has his people's interest at heart. He is listed as one of the most wealthy men in West Virginia, which ranks only in front of Arkansas and Mississippi, as the poorest state in the country. Surely Gov. Justice can relate to his people. The Republicans blast the "elite class" every chance they get. Oh the irony. Bet the Donald does not like looking up at the newest Republican Gov. @ 6'7"!

    It IS peculiar. Very odd. He begs adulation by making stirring noises. It's all about him and his ego.
