If there are any grownups left in the Republican Party they need to explain to trump that starting a civil war because his polling is bad is not a great idea.

Amy Siskind 🏳️‍🌈:
Portland started in the mall of a suburb, where armed Trump militia gathered and terrorized locals. They then rolled as a caravan to PDX, shot paintballs and pepper spray at passerby’s from their pick up trucks. Now someone is dead.

Donald Trump is inciting violence and holding our cities hostage for political gain. He doesn’t care about the death and destruction he causes along the way. Just another mafia-style quid pro quo shakedown. Truly vile and loathsome.

Right Wing Watch:
Watch as someone who looks a lot like Trump-loving evangelical author and radio host Eric Metaxas sucker punches an anti-Trump protester following Trump's RNC speech last night.

@HernanHenry It is disgusting that he is doing that. It is such a blatant display of racism and authoritarianism.

All evidence indicates Kyle was defending himself, yet the mainstream media has done their best to crucify him. That's why he's becoming a symbol
