If Portland Has Been Burning And "Under Siege" For "Years" By Radical Leftist Maniacs, Why Hasn't Trump Said One Word About It Before Now?
Trump absurdly claims that Portland has been "under siege" for "years." (As someone who has spent a lot of time in Portland I can assure you this is a lie.) pic.twitter.com/ssq60Ct30y— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) August 31, 2020

Joe Biden was in the White House for 8 years. Riots at this scale didn’t happen. America wasn’t at war with itself. The economy turned around and became prosperous again. The auto industry was saved.
What you’re seeing right now is #TrumpTerrorism.

TRUMP: No pic.twitter.com/rpAwO5HqN6
REPORTER: Your trip to Kenosha could exacerbate tension and increase violence. Do you give consideration to that?— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) August 31, 2020

So there we are. Trump making (fake) excuses for a kid who shouldn't have even had an assault rifle in the first place, and who shot two people dead. The president is straight-up defending murder on the streets.— Michael Marshall Smith (@ememess) August 31, 2020
This is deliberate. Trump wants us to be afraid of November. https://t.co/zI1GbWC4kb
There it is — Trump supports the 17-year-old militia member and Kenosha murder suspect, suggesting a video of Kyle Rittenhouse illegally firing an AR-15 style weapon appears to be an "interesting situation" of self defense https://t.co/7fm7MkTmX3 pic.twitter.com/NKqt3jdPUo— Bad Fox Graphics (@BadFoxGraphics) August 31, 2020
Could someone have said- “That was after he shot someone in the head.” JFC. They let him just make it seem like they chased him down for no reason. They were pursuing an active shooter.— Ahsoka (@AhsokaTheGrey) August 31, 2020
You know, I really think it's dangerous to let this piece of work say this stuff unfiltered on TV.— digby (@digby56) August 31, 2020
He just defended the Portland caravan and condemned the Portland shooter ---- and defended that vigilante in Kenosha
Now he's defending cops who "choke" and kill unarmed people.

Anatomy of a Trump smear:— Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) August 31, 2020
Trump makes a false claim without evidence. Right wing outlets promote it.
The media legitimize it by asking for comment.
Then Trump targets someone else.
Meanwhile all the attacks distract the public from the fact:
Over 180,000 Americans have died.
