Republicans officially renominated Donald Trump to represent the GOP on the ballot in the Nov. 3 presidential election, locking in the party’s ticket for an electoral battle against Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris. And the whole thing was weird, to say the least. The delegate from Arkansas brought up “Crooked Hillary.” It’s four years later, and they are still running against Clinton. And at one point, Trump took to the stage, and I need to tell you that part of our job here at Political Tribune is to figure out what the fuck this president is talking about. It’s not easy sometimes, you guys.
During his speech at the Republican National Convention in Charlotte, NC, Trump claimed that people are”coming out of the rivers” to vote for him, then he mentioned, “those beautiful war fields that we have.” And I have questions. Who are the river people, and what war fields is he talking about? I’m at a loss.
Watch part of that below:

Is that where the stealth jets landed during the War of Independence to storm the beaches of Normandy to fight the Spanish Flu in 1917?

Apparently the president believes there are people “coming out of the rivers.”
A psych eval is in order.

We should really be hearing sirens in the background and a firm voice saying “Sir can you please come with us”

And the weird part is that each time Trump speaks in Turnip, the audience applauds him. It’s as if his supporters are enabling a man who is mentally unfit for office or something. I look forward to the day his home planet reclaims him.
