Trump speech in Hershey - 'Ugly' - Update

Trump tweeted/retweeted 60 times before 11:30a yesterday, and finished with another new record of 102. Twitter is a view into Trump's mind. It is obvious the material there is highly agitated, at very least.
Trump gave a speech at a campaign rally in Hershey, Pennsylvania. In the more than 90 minute, terribly slurring diatribe, Trump pushed dis-proven conspiracy theories, blatant lies, trashed those who aren’t blindly loyal, made misogynistic remarks, and demonstrated that he misunderstands the Constitution. It was shouting, it made no sense, and it was one of Trump's most disjointed and rambling performances ever. His slurring is becoming much worse with time.

He lamented how the FBI “destroyed the lives of people” who were associated with his campaign — a comment alluding to criminals like Paul Manafort and Roger Stone. Trump then referred to FBI agents as “scum.”
Later, Trump referred to Adam Schiff as a “crooked bastard.” Trump warned of doomsday if he doesn’t win reelection. “At stake in our present battle is the survival of the American nation itself. We will destroy our country if these people get in.”

"American manufacturing was the bedrock of your economy. The bedrock remember last administration you'd need a magic wand and never come back. You'd need a back. We found the magic wand. Didn't we then came after the NAFTA disaster. I call it one of the worst trade deals in the history of any country and the loss of one in three Pennsylvania manufacturing jobs." ----> HERE

Trump's off the rails speech provides fodder for the view that Attorney General William Barr is acting more like the president’s bum boy than the nation’s chief law-enforcement official. Yesterday Barr called the Trump campaign’s links to Russia in 2016 a “completely bogus narrative that was largely fanned and hyped by an irresponsible press.”
