Trump held yet another campaign rally today, this time in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and touched on many of his usual topics without saying much of anything new. He said he would close the Southern border if Mexico doesn’t stop some alleged caravan. He demonstrated that he doesn’t know what batteries are in his attack on wind power, which is already widely used.
The interesting part was actually the warmup act, in which Donald Trump Jr. riled up the crowd by attacking Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and admitting that he’s afraid of her. The crowd, equally shaking in their MAGA hats, started chanting “AOC sucks.”

“Think about the fact that every mainstream leading Democratic contender is taking the advice of a freshmen congresswoman who three weeks ago didn’t know the three branches of government,” Don Jr. said. Fact check: She definitely knew the three branches of government before he or his dad did. But that’s not the best part.
“I don’t know about you guys but that’s pretty scary,” he said, prompting the crowd to start chanting “AOC sucks.” It does suck when a woman of color is so powerful that she scares the living daylights out of you, doesn’t it?
Don Jr. then calls the chanting crowd “not very nice,” as though a kind word ever passed from between his lips once in his entire life other than to suck up to his dad.
Suffice it to say, people are not impressed.
Trump isn't the only one who acts like a child, so do his voters. This is something I'd expect from middle schoolers. https://t.co/wFYQC3iF4f— Lisa Wetzelberger (@LisaWetzelberge) March 29, 2019
Articulate, smart women scare the crap out of the Trump Cult ? You don’t have to completely agree with her, but to yell “AOC SUCKS” is so sophomoric!— AuGirl (@au_girl) March 29, 2019

Tragically, there were 11 separate 4-wheeler fatalities as the crowd hastily attempted to return home from the rally in time to catch reruns of Two and a half Men.— Crows tongue in aspic (@nontendre) March 29, 2019

Is this the civility?— Travis Gain (@tgain83) March 29, 2019
Of course they did. I can only assume that they had plenty of time to practice their chant in the unemployment line— Matt Strausbaugh (@agentgraves13) March 29, 2019
Others are quite happy to hear the chant because they know that it means AOC is in their heads and giving them nightmares.
