Instead of watching with bored disinterest and trying desperately to stay awake, President Donald Trump plans to spend the next Democrat debate night (Jan. 14) holding his own 2020 campaign rally in the key battleground state of Wisconsin.
“President Trump has delivered for Wisconsin creating 37,400 new jobs, including 4,900 new manufacturing jobs and 13,800 new construction jobs,” the president’s 2020 chief operating officer, Michael Glassner, reportedly said in a statement.
“President Trump looks forward to returning to the Badger State to celebrate his message of ‘Promises Made, Promises Kept.’”

If the Jan. 14 rally goes through as planned, it’ll mark the president’s second rally in the new year. Scheduled for Jan. 9, the first rally is to be held in Toledo, Ohio.
“Trump won both of the Midwestern states in 2016 and his campaign regards them as critical for his re-election next year,” Bloomberg notes.
According to Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh, the timing of the second rally is no mere coincidence.
“What better counter-programming could there be?” he reportedly said.
Tragically, counter-programming isn’t even really needed, as a dwindling number of Americans have been tuning in for the Democrat Party’s increasingly bizarre primary debates.
The last debate roughly two weeks ago drew in only 6.17 million viewers, making it the least-watched debate thus far of the election cycle.
Even the Democrat’s first primary debate in June drew in only 15.3 million viewers, a whopping 8.7 million fewer Americans than the at least 24 million who tuned in for the first GOP primary debate in 2015. Nice try, though.
“Wednesday’s debate ratings still fell far short of the Trump-fueled records for Republican primary debates. Trump’s first time on the debate stage, in August 2015, helped attract 24 million viewers to Fox News. His second time helped draw 23 million viewers to CNN.” https://t.co/RHyj2tiDCv

Meanwhile, thanks reportedly in part to the Democrats’ impeachment obsession, support for this election season’s Democrat presidential candidates has dropped while support for the president has risen, with Trump now winning more national and statewide polls than he was when the election season first began to heat up.
“President Donald Trump, the first modern president to face impeachment during his first term in the White House, now leads his top Democratic rivals in his bid for a second,” USA Today revealed in a bombshell poll just two weeks ago.
It’s unclear at this point whether Trump will even be impeached as of Jan. 14. Though House Democrats filed articles of impeachment against him weeks earlier, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has steadfastly refused to transfer the articles to the Senate.
And according to Harvard Law School professor Noah Feldman, who was called by House Democrats themselves at the start of the month to testify against the president, so long as the articles aren’t transmitted, impeachment hasn’t happened.
“Impeachment, as contemplated by the Constitution, does not consist merely of the vote by the House, but of the process of sending the articles to the Senate for trial,” he wrote in a widely shared column published to Bloomberg two weeks ago.
“Both parts are necessary to make an impeachment under the Constitution: The House must actually send the articles and send managers to the Senate to prosecute the impeachment. And the Senate must actually hold a trial.”
Some believe it’s stunts like this — pursuing impeachment and then reneging on it at the very last minute — that’s made Democrats so unlikable.
That and their increasing disdain for blue-collar Americans. On Monday, for instance, 2020 contender former Vice President Joe Biden dismissively said that coal miners need to get with the climate change agenda and learn how to code …
“Anybody who can go down 3,000 feet in a mine can sure as hell learn to program as well,” he said at a campaign event in New Hampshire event Monday. “Anybody who can throw coal into a furnace can learn how to program, for God’s sake!”
Maybe a career politician can learn to code and earn his first honest dollar: @JoeBiden saying “Anybody who can go down.. in a mine sure as hell can learn to program as well…Anybody who can throw coal into furnace can learn how to program for God’s sake

This remark came only eleven days after he admitted pointed blank during the Democrats’ last primary debate that he’s willing to throw the American people and their livelihoods under the bus economically if it means getting his way.
He admitted as much after being asked by moderator Tim Alberta of Politico about whether he’s willing to sacrifice President Donald Trump’s economic gains if it means allegedly making the American economy more ecologically friendly.
“Vice President Biden, I’d like to ask you, three consecutive American presidents have enjoyed stints of explosive economic growth due to oil and gas production,” Alberta said.
“As president, would you be willing to sacrifice some of that growth, even knowing potentially that it could displace thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of blue-collar workers in the interest transitioning to that greener economy?”
“The answer is yes,” the former VP turned 2020 contender bluntly replied.
Who do you suppose the American people will choose to listen to on Jan. 14 — the guy who’s willing to throw their lives away in pursuit of a green utopia, or the duly elected president who’s committed to bringing back jobs, not destroying them?
