Following his not-so stellar performance at the Fox News debate last week, Donald Trump lost one-third of his support (26% to 17%) according to Rasmussen. A new Franklin Pierce University/Boston Herald poll has Trump losing nearly half of his support after the debate. But fear not, Trump supporters: an off-the-cuff remark that the embattled candidate made last night may gain all of that support back. And then some.
During a Michigan press conference, Trump suggested he might fight the #BlackLivesMatter crowd himself if they try to commandeer one of his speeches like they did with Bernie Sanders.
Perhaps Trump’s greatest appeal is his willingness to flout political correctness. By declaring war against the gut-wrenchingly PC #BlackLivesMatter crowd, he has hit a political grand slam with many conservatives. As Allahpundit noted at Hot Air, a campaign strategist couldn’t have scripted this better.
“I felt badly for him, but it showed that he’s weak. You know what? He’s getting the biggest crowds, and I’m getting the biggest crowds. We’re the two getting the crowds. But believe me, that’s not gonna happen to Trump.”
“I would never give up my microphone,” the billionaire White House hopeful added. “I thought that was disgusting.”
“That showed such weakness, the way he was taken away by two young women. The microphone! They just took the whole place over!”
“That will never happen with me. I don’t know if I’ll do the fighting myself, or if other people will, but that was a disgrace.”
#BlackLivesMatter activists on Twitter seem eager to take Trump up on the challenge, so his next speech could feature a struggle at the podium between Trump and/or his bodyguards and left-wing black radicals trying to steal his mic while ranting about police brutality.
Stay tuned and buy popcorn.
