Caught My Eye…

This is a special edition of “Caught My Eye…” about President Donald J. Trump’s visit to Great Falls, Montana.

And this November, I need you to get your friends, get your colleagues, get your neighbors, and get your ass out to vote. – President Donald J. Trump (Great Falls, MT 07/05/18)

I don’t think there’s a much more exciting thing to witness than the President visiting your town – it’s especially great when you don’t have to work or volunteer at the event.

The people in and around Great Falls, Montana, and almost every Republican I can think of from Montana showed up early and in massive numbers for President Donald J. Trump on Thursday (July 5) and the President delivered a speech that was, shall we say, typical Trump.

I’ve been listening to the Charlie Daniels band play “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” all morning to drown out the sounds of black helicopters flying overhead. More about that later in this commentary.

The United Nations might even be spraying chemtrails on me as I write. I may grow a 12th toe.

You are probably wondering why all this is happening. Here’s why:
