Twitter Deeply Disturbed Over Trump’s Speech That Barely Tried to Hide Its Anti-Semitism and Fascism

An Unleashed and Unhinged Trump Threaded His Denial Accusations of Sexual Assault With Even Darker, Uglier Rhetoric

Donald Trump delivered one of the most disturbing and fiery speeches of his entire campaign Thursday afternoon to cheering supporters in Florida that was, as many on Twitter noticed, threaded with anti-Semitism, fascism, and sexism.

The billionaire international businessman denied all claims made against him by a dozen women since Wednesday, accusing him of sexual assault or inappropriate behavior. He vowed to win the White House because he, and only he, can fix the nation’s woes. 

Trump also attacked the “corporate media”:

And to the crowd’s chants of “Lock her up!” Trump said Clinton “should be locked up.”

The Atlantic’s Senior Editor tweeted this disturbing section of Trump’s speech:

And elsewhere on Twitter, many responded to the fascism and anti-Semitism that was threaded into Trump’s speech:

WEAKEST PRESIDENT EVER

‘He Had Nothing to Say’: Top Newspapers Deliver Scathing Articles Rebuking Trump’s Absence as Nation Protests

Donald Trump, addressing reporters at the White House

The Washington Post and The New York Times served up hard-hitting news articles Sunday night rebuking President Donald Trump’s absence on the sixth day and night of protests over the police killing of George Floyd.

“Never in the 1,227 days of Trump’s presidency has the nation seemed to cry out for leadership as it did Sunday, yet Trump made no attempt to provide it.” The Washington Post‘s Philip Rucker reported, adding that “Trump stayed safely ensconced inside and had nothing to say, besides tweeting fuel on the fire.”

Rucker, the Post’s White House Bureau Chief, did not stop his clear recriminations there.

“Trump and some of his advisers calculated that he should not speak to the nation because he had nothing to say, according to a senior administration official. He had no tangible policy or action to announce, nor did he feel an urgent motivation to try to bring people together. So he stayed silent.”

The New York Times delivered another embarrassing assessment.

“Inside the White House, the mood was bristling with tension. Hundreds of protesters were gathering outside the gates, shouting curses at President Trump and in some cases throwing bricks and bottles. Nervous for his safety, Secret Service agents abruptly rushed the president to the underground bunker used in the past during terrorist attacks.”

Clearly an address to the nation is called for. Trump’s advisors apparently aren’t so sure.

“Trump spent Sunday out of sight, even as some of his campaign advisers were recommending that he deliver a nationally televised address before another night of possible violence.”

And The Times offered up another example of just how bad the President’s advisory team is.

“Some officials were urging that Mr. Trump hold events intended to show black voters enraged over the latest videotaped act of brutality that he heard their views,” The Times’ Peter Baker and Maggie Haberman wrote. “A group of advisers discussed plans for a series of ‘listening’ events. But others have counseled that the president should take a hard line, one that is not quite as aggressive as his tweets but that sends a message to business owners whose property has been destroyed that he is willing to defend them.”

And then, this:

“Some campaign advisers were pressing for a formal address to the nation as early as Sunday. But White House officials, recalling Mr. Trump’s error-filled Oval Office address in March about the spread of the coronavirus, cautioned that it was not necessary. Mr. Trump quizzed advisers throughout the day Sunday about whether he should give an Oval Office address.”

CNN broke the news:

Many blame Trump for fueling division and stoking the flames of division for political gain. Immediately they expressed anger, outrage, and disgust.
