An enormous celebratory crowd filled The Broadmoor World Arena on Thursday afternoon to attend Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Colorado Springs. It was a rock concert-like moment, packed with high emotion and positive energy. Trump’s message was delivered with exuberance, confidence and humor. He is as much an entertainer as a politician.
The rally provided a sharp contrast to Wednesday’s ugly and angry Democratic debate. We haven’t witnessed a Democratic event with this many happy people. Maybe they need to work on that.
Colorado Springs Republicans welcomed Trump with applause and supportive chants. People who had camped overnight to see the president were rewarded with a typical Trump rally. He listed his many successes — the rebuilding of the military, the economy, record low employment, judicial appointments and many more. He took jabs at the fake news, the Academy Awards, Hillary Clinton, Rosie O’Donnell, “Mini Mike” Bloomberg and “Sleepy Joe” Biden.
