On another day that Democrat Joe Biden spent hiding in his basement, President Trump once again hit the campaign trail where he held a rally in the key battleground state of North Carolina.
In a speech delivered to an enthusiastic crowd of patriots in Fayetteville, the leader of the free world tore into lunchbucket Joe, paid tribute to deceased Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and unloaded on wishy-washy RINOs with both barrels.
It was yet another strong performance for Trump whose energy and vigor is a stark contrast to Biden who is physically and mentally feeble and in no way fit for the rigors of the presidency if the Democrats can steal the election.
In one of the best lines of the speech, the POTUS once again suggested that Biden was receiving a boost from pharmaceuticals administered before debates.

The president joked:
“Don’t underestimate him, look, he’s been doing this for 47 years,” Trump said, pointing to the upcoming debates. “You never know. They give him a big fat shot in the ass and he comes out, and for two hours he’s better than ever before.”
Trump previously challenged the former vice president to take a drug test.
The president also promised that he would be filling RBG's vacated seat while the crowd chanted "Fill That Seat" sensing a historic chance to shift the court away from liberal activism.
A day after Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death, President Donald Trump relished the opportunity to promise his supporters that he would fill the vacant Supreme Court seat, a move designed to energize his voters just weeks before the election.
In his first expanded remarks about the Supreme Court, Trump told thousands of supporters at a campaign rally Saturday that he has a “moral duty” to replace Ginsburg, and that his pick will be a woman.
“So Article 2 of our Constitution says the president shall nominate justices of the Supreme Court,” he said. “I don't think it can be any more clear ... I don't think so. I don't think so.”
“Fill that seat!” the crowd chanted.
“That’s what we're going to do. We're going to fill the seat,” he responded to cheers.
Trump’s allies said they hoped he would shift his focus from the coronavirus outbreak to the Supreme Court to invigorate Republicans by showing them what’s at stake in the election. The president delivered Saturday, signaling that he plans to campaign on the issue for the next six weeks, revising a strategy he employed in 2016.
Trump noted presidents, including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln, had nominated justices to the Supreme Court 29 times in an election year, saying he has plenty of time before his term ends Jan. 20.
“We won an election and those are the consequences,” Trump said. “You know, it's called fill that seat and that's what we're doing.”
With the elderly and ailing Ginsburg's death so close to the election, the usual suspects are showing signs of joining their Democrat friends to deprive President Trump of a third SCOTUS justice in his first term including Senator Susan Collins.
Trump flogged the nominal Republican from sparsely populated Maine who has been a constant pain in the ass during his first term.
Via NBC Maine:
President Trump began the rally by speaking about the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
"As we meet tonight, our nation mourns the loss of a legal giant, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg," Trump began. "You may agree or disagree with her, but she was a tremendous inspiration to a lot of people... Our thoughts and prayers are with her family."
Following his message of condolence, Trump said, "Article 2 of our Constitution says the President should nominate justices of the Supreme Court. I don't think it can be any more clear, I don't think so!"
The crowd responded by chanting, "Fill that seat!"
"And that's what we're going to do," said Trump, "We're going to fill that seat."
The President continued, working Senator Susan Collins into his remarks, "There have been 29 times a vacancy opened during an election year or prior to an inauguration. 29 times! That's a lot. Every single time, the sitting President made a nomination... Nobody said, 'Oh let's not fill the seat!' We won the election! Now, we have some senators that, oh well, you know, forget it. I won't say it... I won't say it, Susan! I won't say it, Susan."
Sen. Collins who is up for reelection issued a statement that she opposed a vote to fill Ginsburg's seat until after the election which would hamstring a court that may have to decide the winner thanks to the underhanded legal maneuvers that the Dems are planning,.
