Trump Laughs as Florida Rally Crowd Calls for Joe Biden’s Imprisonment, ‘Lock Him Up!’

Donald Trump laughed and smirked as a crowd of his supporters in Florida chanted “lock him up” about his political opponent Joe Biden. Sound familiar?

Trump made the remark in Ocala after telling a group of seniors in Fort Myers he views the Bidens as an “organized crime family” even though no Americans or Ukrainian government entity has accused either father or son of criminal actions.

Hmmm, “organized crime family”, that sounds mighty familiar too!! Projection, you say?

Trump has spent a great deal of time at campaign and official events this week saying a recent New York Post article claiming to have reviewed emails showing Hunter Biden setting up a meeting with a business partner from Ukraine and his then-vice president father. The Biden campaign denies any official statement shows such a meeting ever happened; the newspaper also reported the emails show the younger Biden trying to sell his influence, including with his VP father. But the article is as sketchy as humanly possible. No other newspaper would touch it, except for the sleazy conservative New York Post.

The Biden’s have denied any wrongdoing, but Trump is painting Biden as both senile and corrupt and a puppet of the liberal wing of his party, which the president contends will essentially oust Biden from power, if he is elected in a few weeks.

And if Biden is senile, what do you call Trump, who here is unable to say the word “illegal”:

Both Facebook and Twitter restricted sharing of the story, which is no doubt from Russian intelligence, saying they were acting to slow the spread of false information. Twitter said sharing the story contravened its policy on “directly distributing content obtained through hacking that contains private information”.

The move has allowed the president to say he is not only running against Biden and Democrats but also “big tech”.
