    I'm old enough and grew up in the tri-state area, to know just how bad the Bronx and Newark and Asbury Park and Atlantic City and East Orange and Bed-Sty was.

    I don't think so.

    Probably not.

    We never will know.

    Reagan started out like Javier Milie, then he got shot, and everything changed.

    You mean that same Reagan that stated "These fighters in the white house are our modern day freedom fighters "Afghan Jihadist Fighters"

    If there was any mistake that the Republicans did to counter the Russians that was it.

    Yes it was...fatal mistake.

    Probably not. It's possible that now that the delirium over George Floyd has worn off and there's been 4 years of Biden, there are large numbers of black and brown people willing to listen to Trump. His record on black issues really isn't bad. Permanent funding for land grant HBCUs and the most significant criminal justice reform of a generation. And there may be trouble brewing for democrats over immigration.

    Like Trump or not, it was a brilliant move to go to the Bronx after what Hochul said about black children in the Bronx not knowing what a computer is.

    "It was said" is definitely a phrase.


    Here's some live video. The thumbnail and video of the crowd is hilariously zoomed in and cropped down to hide all the empty grass, but it's exactly the same size as what I linked.

    Without knowing anything about the crowd size I can say with certainty that it was bigger than a crowd Biden could muster.

    Not a fan, just what was reported.

    Neither one of us were there.

    Believe what you want.

    Even it was just 800, that's still pretty amazing, all things considered.

    YMMV

    Looks like a respectable size crowd to me.
    Skip to 3:40 and look at the crowd.
    Probably close to a million.

    It didn't show anything. A complete overhead would tell the story
    Law enforcement at the scene estimated between 8k-10k. Trump campaign said 25k lol
