Will You Please Like Me?’ Trump Asks At PA Rally

JOHNSTOWN, PA — President Trump on Tuesday held a rally in Pennsylvania in which he implored suburban women voters that he needs to win the Nov. 3 election to support him.

“Suburban women: Will you please like me?” he asked. “Please. Please. I saved your damn neighborhood, OK?”

Trump has returned to the campaign trail after having tested positive for the coronavirus almost two weeks ago. After a rally in Florida on Monday, he made his second public appearance outside of Washington since being diagnosed with the virus.

He spoke for more than an hour in Johnstown to a crowd of thousands, most of whom were not wearing masks or observing social distancing despite the coronavirus outbreak. Claiming he was now immune from the virus, Trump offered to kiss members of the audience.

His pleading with women voters comes after a recent survey in The New York Times indicated that

President Trump claimed himself cured of COVID-19 and said he is “immune” from the virus. Some medical professionals say there is no guarantee of that.

USA TODAY

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump made a direct appeal to suburban women during a campaign rallyin the critical battleground of Pennsylvania Tuesday as he sought to use his Supreme Court nomination to reset the trajectory of the race.  

“Do me a favor, suburban women, would you please like me?” Trump said in Johnstown, Pa., a Republican stronghold where Trump hopes to run up turnout in the Nov. 3 election. “I saved your damn neighborhood, okay?”

Trump started off almost immediately with criticism of Joe Biden, saying his Democratic opponent was “shot” and had “crushed” the

White women in this state regret voting for Trump: ‘I got it wrong’

White women in Pennsylvania admitted to feeling ‘shame’ over their vote for this president in 2016.

The presidential election is less than three weeks away, and former supporters of President Donald Trump in Pennsylvania are experiencing voter’s remorse. These white women regret having cast their ballots for this president and plan on voting for Joe Biden instead in November.

Trump shocked the political establishment in 2016 when he carried the state of Pennsylvania to victory, propelled by 50% of white women in the state. However, recent polls have indicated that the now-swing state may revert back to the column of the Democrats.

“Immune” & “Powerful” Trump Says He Wants To Kiss “Guys,” “Beautiful Women” At Rally

President Donald Trump is back on the campaign trail a mere 11 days after announcing that he tested positive for COVID-19. Eager to solidify support and downplay the threat of the coronavirus, Trump’s maskless machismo led him to Florida – a state that could make or break his reelection campaign – where he boldly announced that he was not only “immune” to the coronavirus but felt “powerful.”

Trump felt so powerful, in fact, that he threatened to kiss many of the people at his rally. “I’ll kiss everyone in that audience,” Trump said, his voice sounding slightly hoarse. “I’ll kiss the guys and the beautiful women. Just give you a big fat kiss.” Yikes!

Trump did not wear a mask to the rally, even when he wasn’t speaking. According to the New York Times, he didn’t wear one while boarding Air Force One before leaving

Hollie Geitner fidgets with her coffee on a brisk and foggy fall morning. Joan Smeltzer shifts in her seat, adjusting her shirt as the breeze rolls through her backyard. Julie Brady smokes one last hand-rolled cigarette, playing with the case adorned with the American flag to calm her nerves.

They are all nervous because of what they are about to discuss. They haven’t really talked about it in such a public way.

“I wasn’t ready to say to anybody, even my own husband, I’m not voting for him again. But I, I obviously am saying that now,” Geitner said.

“My husband and his whole family are Trump supporters. So, I’m kind of in the minority,” Brady said.

These women voted for Donald Trump in 2016. They are part of the 50% of white women in Pennsylvania who exit polls showed helped

In style and substance, Trump leans on authoritarian tactics

After Donald Trump’s recent hospitalization, the president and his team took a variety of steps to produce images of a “performative show of strength,” as CNN’s Brian Stelter put it. Referring to North Korea’s political model, Stelter added, “This is the kind of thing you see from strongmen who want to appear to be leading — it’s a ‘Dear Leader’ sort of approach.”

A Washington Post report went on to note over the weekend, “[A]nalysts who study authoritarian regimes said critics are right to posit that Trump has borrowed from the playbooks of strongman leaders in his messaging. Ruth Ben-Ghiat, a historian at New York University, said Trump shares the authoritarian urge for “constant public adoration,” and she emphasized that he is ‘very savvy about how the authoritarian leader-follower relationship works.'”

But as important as it is to appreciate the degree to which the Republican incumbent emulates an authoritarian style,

The average of all polls also shows Biden’s advantage expanding into the double-digits following the first presidential debate and Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis.

What’s the point: There can be little doubt that Biden is beating Trump, and that he would be a very heavy favorite to beat the President if the election were being held today. There are multiple reasons why Trump is in such trouble, but chief among them is women.

Biden’s doing so well in the polls because he’s putting up historically strong numbers with women voters. In fact, he’s still losing among men.

Newt Gingrich says Trump should study Pence’s debating style

Impressed by the vice president’s performance at Wednesday night’s debate, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said President Trump could learn a thing or two about the art of debating from his right-hand man.

Gingrich said Friday that Vice President Mike Pence was calm and that Trump should study the way he sparred with Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris ahead of at least one more scheduled debate with Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

“I thought Vice President Pence did a remarkable job the other night, which I really hope the president will study,” Gingrich told Harris Faulkner on Fox News. “He wasn’t hostile. He just stayed on her. And I think, as a result, he had a very good evening. And the country had a much better sense of what a radical Kamala Harris is.”

Trump and Biden’s first presidential debate was on Sept. 29. The two were scheduled to meet

‘I just don’t want Trump for another four years.’ Are working-class white women going to elect Biden?

Nicole Peyton sat out the 2016 election because she didn’t like President Trump’s behavior and believed Hillary Clinton was “tarnished.” But this year, the “conservative-leaning” homemaker plans to cast a ballot for Democrat Joe Biden.

“He would be a better option. Anybody’s better” than Trump, said Peyton, 31, who dropped out of college to have her first child. Trump is a bad example for her five kids, she said as she picked up pizza for her family’s dinner on a recent Friday.

Whether women like Peyton decide to back Biden could determine who wins critical battleground states such as Michigan — which Trump won by 10,704 votes, or 0.23% — as well as Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. The demographic denoted by pollsters as white women without a college degree overwhelmingly supported
