President Trump was on fire at Thursday evening’s rally in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where he pulled no punches when talking about the Democrats, the mayor of Minneapolis, Nancy Pelosi, the “Squad,” the so-called whistleblower, and Joe Biden. At one point he directed a message to Joe Biden’s son, Hunter. “Your father was never considered smart. He was never considered a good senator. He was only a good vice president because he understood how to kiss Barack Obama’s a—.”

After an explosion of cheers from the crowd, he went on to question why Hunter Biden has been out of the public eye since his business dealings have come under scrutiny. “Joe’s son Hunter got thrown out of the Navy and then he became a genius on Wall Street in about two days,” Trump said. “By the way, what the hell ever happened to Hunter? Where is he? Let’s do another t-shirt: Where’s Hunter?”
Reaction to Trump’s speech on Twitter was priceless.
CNN’s Jim Acosta was obviously scandalized:
Trump takes rally into the gutter, hitting Biden: "He was only a good vice president because he understood how to kiss Barack Obama's ass."

Former Kerry and Hillary advisor Peter Daou compared the event to a Nazi rally:
For years, I've been mindful of Godwin's Law, studiously avoiding Nazi comparisons when I engage in political debate.
But it is impossible for me to watch the #MinneapolisTrumpRally and fail to recognize the echoes of Nazi Germany.
This is terrifying and infuriating. #Impeach

Joe Biden was also triggered by Trump’s rally:
I spent my night at the HRC forum talking about the fundamental respect every human being deserves. You spent yours showing how little respect for anyone else you have. America is so much stronger than your weakness, @realDonaldTrump.

Randi Rhodes, who I guess has a radio show, called Trump psychotic:
Trump is full-blown psychotic right now#MinneapolisTrumpRally
51 percent want Trump impeached and removed! That’s a higher percentage than elected him!

Actor Isaiah Washington, however, was pumped:

To say the rally was massive is understatement:
