Trump works up a sweat at a Louisiana campaign rally

MONROE, La. (AP) – President Donald Trump worked up a sweat in a steamy Louisiana arena Wednesday night (November 6, 2019) as he attempted to boost Republican businessman Eddie Rispone’s effort to unseat incumbent Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards in the nation’s last governor’s race of the year.

“It may be 120 degrees in this room,” Trump told the crowd at the end of a rally in the northeastern Louisiana city of Monroe.

“Somebody is saving on air conditioning,” Trump joked. “That’s all right. You’ve always got to save a little money. You go home and you lose about nine pounds and you say, What happened?”

The gubernatorial runoff election in Louisiana offers Trump an opportunity to pick up a win in a rare Democratic-held governor’s seat in the Deep South and change the narrative after a pair of apparent setbacks this week for the Republican party in Kentucky and Virginia.

“With your help we can make it Rispone country,” Cassidy said as the crowd cheered.

Kennedy defended the president against the impeachment inquiry, slamming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for launching the probe.

“I don’t mean any disrespect but it must suck to be that dumb,” he said of Pelosi.

Among the guests, Trump brought on stage were Duck Dynasty stars Willie and Phil Robertson.

“If you are pro-God and pro-American and pro-gun and pro-duck hunting. That’s all I want,” Phil Robertson said.

Tuesday night marks Trump’s second campaign rally this week following his Monday night appearance in Lexington, Kentucky, in support of Republican Gov. Matt Bevin, who appears to have fallen short in Tuesday’s gubernatorial race.

More than 40,000 people requested tickets for Wednesday night’s rally at the Monroe Civic Center, but the arena can only hold between 7,500 and 10,000 people. Another awesome Trump rally. If there is a rally scheduled near you, ensure you go and get tickets as fast as you can!

Born down on the farm in America's Midwest, my early life was spent climbing the ladder via a long career in information technology. Starting as a technician, and after earning a degree going to night school, I eventually found a place working at ATT Bell Laboratories as a software engineer.

Later moving into management and then a long stint in a major management consulting firm working with major banking, telecommunications, and retail companies. Working in various states in America, I also spent considerable time living and working in several European countries - currently expat in France. As a side career, I was heavily involved in real estate development and an avid futures trader. This experience can give one a unique view of the world.

The storm clouds of dark change are near. Today America is at a crossroads. Will it maintain its prowess as a national leader in the free modern advancing world, or will it backtrack in the abyss of the envy identity politics of tyrannical socialism, and the loss of individual freedoms. The 2020 election may have decided this. Join the Right Wire Report team and make a stand.
