What do you get when you cross tin foil with stupidity?
The Trump Chicago rally was a staged PR stunt. According to the Chicago PD, Trump was never there, and he didn’t bother to consult them before cancelling the rally. And they never advised him to cancel the event. Trump set this thing up with the expectation that he would get this kind of response, and that he could spend the weekend playing the victim and posing as a defender of free speech. Fox news tonight is nothing more than a Trump informercial (even more than usual).
That Trump guy is diabolical!
I should point out that implicit in this staged PR stunt theory is an admission that the optics of last night’s fascist riot are bad for Democrats. Expect to see claims that all the violence was committed by agents provocateurs working for Trump.
You can expect more attempts to shut down Trump rallies too. And expect Trump to keep being blamed for any and all violence. That is the official narrative for this election.
But for anybody watching, the truth is obvious.
