9:34 pm
>> most of his rallies, he talks more about him elf about what he has done, instead of the candidate and what their agenda is. rallies, his campaign when he was running for president, he said a joke about a snake. he said, you knew i was a snake, yet you let me in. this is all about him. he is a snake. people have voted for him. he lies continuously. the economy is good, the market is good. some of the wages have gone up, but what about how other people view it in other countries? and our integrity.

9:38 pm
i do not think that is fair. if the rally was in gary, indiana, it would have been a different outcome. you would have seen a lot more. they are just not being fair. trump is doing a great job. he is getting america woke up so we can get our country back. i wish they would be more fair to him in the media and i cannot help but remember obama when he was making a speech about being in the white house and he commented you are in my house now. this president has thanked us for letting him stay in our house. i think that deserves praise. i hope everybody goes out and vote and get their opinion out and realize that the minority is not the majority. we want our constitution back and our rights back. stuff that has --
