Read This Frightening Tweetstorm From Donald Trump’s Latest Rally

“Anger in here is palpable.”


During a campaign rally in Greensboro, North Carolina on Tuesday, Donald Trump continued to promote his plan to ban all Muslims from entering the country and insinuate that President Barack Obama is a terrorist sympathizer—two controversial points the real estate magnate has repeated in the aftermath of the Orlando mass shooting on Sunday. Trump’s return to his inflammatory talking points has since frustrated top Republicans, who hoped to see him soften his rhetoric after clinching the party’s nomination for president.

The event also saw a reemergence of the chaos that has characterized previous Trump rallies. While this didn’t get too much attention in the press, one man in attendance decided to live tweet the disturbing scenes that unfolded Tuesday evening—from the parking lot to the main event. Below is a sample of the worst:

The tweetstorm, which can be read in its entirety here, comes as Trump continues to add to his media blackout list—an unprecedented registry that as of this week includes the Washington Post.

IT'S NOT THAT WE'RE SCREWED WITHOUT TRUMP:

"It's that we're screwed with or without him if we can't show the public that what we do matters for the long term," writes Mother Jones CEO Monika Bauerlein as she kicks off our drive to raise $350,000 in donations from readers by July 17.

This is a big one for us. It's our first time asking for an outpouring of support since screams of FAKE NEWS and so much of what Trump stood for made everything we do so visceral. Like most newsrooms, we face incredibly hard budget realities, and it's unnerving needing to raise big money when traffic is down.

So, as we ask you to consider supporting our team's journalism, we thought we'd slow down and check in about where Mother Jones is and where we're going after the chaotic last several years. This comparatively slow moment is also an urgent one for Mother Jones: You can read more in "Slow News Is Good News," and if you're able to, please support our team's hard-hitting journalism and help us reach our big $350,000 goal with a donation today.
