Former President Donald Trump Is Back In Michigan For Rally
When then-President Donald Trump last visited Michigan in the wee hours of Election Day 2020, he told a crowd in Grand Rapids, in what would be his last speech of the campaign, that they’d better get out and vote for him or, “I’ll be so angry, I’ll never come back.”
He apparently got over it.
Bringing with him 17 months’ worth of unproven claims of vote rigging, lies about a stolen election and recriminations for Republican supporters he has deemed insufficiently loyal for refusing to overturn the election results, Trump is back in Michigan on Saturday evening. He will be headlining a rally that itself could serve to further split the state GOP and advance candidates who, while loyal to him, may not be best poised to sway voters in November.
For as much as he divides the public, however, Trump remains the Republicans’ most visible figure and, for now at least, the person most likely to capture their nomination for president in 2024, a mantle he has suggested he may be willing to take up again. And with President Joe Biden’s approval numbers hurt by high inflation and gas prices, a surge in migrant crossings at the southern border and ongoing uncertainty about the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, Trump’s visit comes at an opportune time.
Or maybe they will be front and center as well. With Trump, it’s hard to know in advance what he may end up talking about.
Here’s what else to know about Saturday’s rally:
Why Does The Free Press Call Trump’s Claims About 2020 Baseless
This gets a little complicated, but the long and short of it is that there has been no credible evidence found, in numerous audits, court cases and other efforts, to back up Trump’s claims of widespread election fraud in any state, including Michigan, where he made those allegations.
Democratic and Republican election challengers observed the vote count across Michigan, including in Detroit, where Trump wrongly claimed that invalid ballots appeared mysteriously in the middle of the night. Officials from both parties reviewed and certified the results. Courts rejected challenges to the outcome as based on misunderstanding, conspiracy and conjecture. Post-election audits confirmed that voting machines accurately read ballots. Trump’s own attorney general, William Barr, told Trump that a look into allegations of corruption in Detroit found them baseless.
A comprehensive investigation led by GOP lawmakers uncovered no evidence of widespread fraud and told voters they should have confidence that Joe Biden legitimately won Michigan. And a review in Michigan, nowhere near enough to have tipped the outcome of the election, which Biden won in the state by more than 154,000 votes.

Is Trump Running For President In 2024
Trump has publicly flirted with another run for president in 2024. And because Iowa is expected to again kick off the Republicans’ presidential nominating process with its first-in-the-nation caucuses, his visit here is amplifying speculation that he could enter the race.
Trump easily won Iowa in the 2016 and 2020 general elections, and he remains popular among many Republicans here. This is his first trip back to Iowa since losing the general election to Democrat Joe Biden.
But other national political figures have been making early treks to the state as well, including former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, former Vice President Mike Pence, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and U.S. Sen. of Florida.

Pm: Former Astronaut Mark Kelly ‘disconnected’ From Life On Earth Blake Masters Says
Blake Masters, former President Donald Trump’s choice for U.S. Senate in Arizona, turned Mark Kelly’s NASA career into the butt of jokes as he ripped the incumbent Democratic senator.
Masters will take on Kelly, whom he called the “worst” senator, in the Nov. 8 election if Masters is the winner of the five-way Aug. 2 Republican primary for Arizona’s seat.
Kelly is a retired space shuttle pilot.
Masters related his frustration listening to Kelly talk about his experience in orbit, looking down at Earth from the International Space Station, realizing humans are all in this together.
“I was like, ‘Shut up, Mark, do your job!'” Masters said.
“Mark Kelly is completely disconnected from what life is like here on planet Earth,” Masters said.
“Here on Earth,” problems with inflation and illegal immigration are “out of control,” Masters said.
Masters also added to the dogpile on fellow Republicans, whom he described as obstructing desired policies. “I am sick of those RINOs,” he said, using the term of derision that conservatives often aim at moderate or liberal Republicans “Republicans In Name Only.”

Pm: Trump Attacks Mark Kelly Heaps Praise On Blake Masters
Former President Donald Trump leveled a fusillade of criticism at Democratic incumbent Sen. Mark Kelly as he rallied support for Blake Masters, his endorsed candidate in Arizona’s five-way Aug. 2 Republican Senate primary election.
Trump attacked Kelly’s record on immigration and the border and blamed him for “runaway inflation that’s crushing Arizona families.”
“I know he’s married to a very nice woman, but he’s just not doing the job and Arizona is suffering because of it, so remember that. Remember that,” Trump said. “This November, we’re going to vote Mark Kelly out of office and we’re going to replace him with America First champion Blake Masters.”
Masters is “a real titan of the business and technology world,” Trump said. “He gets it.”
And Masters will bring “exactly the kind of toughness, courage and intellectual firepower we need in the Senate to take our country to the next level,” he said.

Brendan Gutenschwager, an independent reporter, said there were thousands in line for the rally hours before it started:
They couldnt get the A/V equipment working and traffic management was a shit show, but Team Trump did do a good job laying out the space to give the illusion of a large crowd. But this is one of the smallest Trump probably ever had in Ohio on a weekend when people could come.

Implores Marylanders To Get Rid Of The Stench Of Larry Hogan
On Saturday, Dan Cox and Gordana Schifanelli held a campaign rally at Hampsteads Leaping Greenly Farm in Carroll County, featuring an array of recognizable speakers keynoted by Pennsylvanias Republican gubernatorial primary winner Doug Mastriano, that was well attended by the public and other local office seekers alike.
Despite a steady level of excitement throughout the event, the surprise highlight undoubtedly came when former President Donald Trump was bridged in via phone over loud speaker to reaffirm his endorsement of Coxs candidacy and to again lambast Larry Hogan and his hopeful successor Kelly Shulz.
Amidst waning chants of Trump! Trump! Trump! the former President started his few minute speech by praising what sounded like a great crowd and thanking them for their support of Cox and his running mate Shiffanelli a last name he pronounced with an emphasis and dialect that is so uniquely his.
He referred to Cox as a respected lawyer and successful businessman who is tough and smart and who is MAGA all the way, unlike Coxs competitor Shulz who, along with Hogan, is bad news and who has done a lousy job.
The former President praised Cox for standing up to Hogan as a State Delegate, presumably a reference to Coxs attempt to impeach the sitting governor for his heavy handed and rights infringing approach to managing the pandemic.
Indeed, the sweltering heat did little to suppress the excitement pent up in the attending supporters.
