Trump's debate win: Why Trump won big with his base and with right wing groups like the Proud Boys -
Mr. Trump demurred and then said, “Proud Boys — stand back and stand by.” Within minutes, members of the group were posting in private social media channels, calling the president’s comments “historic.” In one channel dedicated to the Proud Boys on Telegram, a private messaging app, group members called the president’s comment a tacit endorsement of their violent tactics. In another message, a member commented that the group was already seeing a spike in “new recruits.” Click on the image to read more from The New York Times
Social media, particularly Facebook, is full of posts defending Donald Trump’s performance. Donald Trump clearly won this debate with his base, and his base will stand steadfastly behind him. He is going into this now ongoing election with a solid base that continues to support him despite his failure to condemn racism, his call to action to violent right wing groups (“stand back and stand ready”), and his baseless attack on election credibility suggesting that his supporters should be ready to call the election a fraud.
Our point is best illustrated by the following from Facebook (of which there are many). The quotes are posted exactly as written on Facebook after the first Biden/Trump debate:
Vice President Biden keep the issues surrounding Trump’s taxes simple. This is all you have to say:
Donald Trump is calling the reports on his taxes fake news.

It is Biden vs. Trump, Round 1. Who will win, who will lose? Could it end up a draw?
Biden says yes we can have clean energy and more jobs, and tells us how.
Trump wants us to have dirtier air and more respiratory problems so his fossil fuel donors can get even richer.
We have 37 days to choose.
The facts do not suppport the contentions on social media that ballots accidently thrown away in a Pennsylvania county support widespread voter fraud or a system of voting that is flawed. NPR reports the following;
Donald Trump has successfully weaponized Covid 19. Instead of the science, the medicine, he has accomplished his goal of making Covid a political issue, not an issue of health. Trump is politically weaponizing Covid-19 and his party, and the democrats, are taking the bait.
Even more shameful, is some of us are also drinking the Trump message up filtering facts through politics not through science and medicine.
Trump ignored the scientists and doctors while thousands died from his virus:In fact, as of today, over 200,000 of us are dead.
Biden will rely on actual experts to defeat COVID once and for all, with “Experts Confident Biden’sCOVID-19 Response Could Speed Recovery”.
In November you can pick the better approach.
There’s not much that’s more important than having clean water to drink, right? Should be a no-brainer.
But Trump has worked overtime to make drinking water more dangerous for ourselves and our children.
Joe Biden’s plan to assure we all have clean drinking water was endorsed by Clean Water Action.
Election Day is November 3! (Allen is giving voters 60 reasons to vote and we are posting them right here)
Read here how Trump’s hotels, bars and restaurants have charged us over a million dollars.
This story describes how he has the gall to charge the Secret Service for the “privilege” of protecting him. Click here to read more about Trump’s gall.
And We the People have paid more than over $141,000,000 so Trump can golf at his own courses.
Enough! We can send this crook packing in 41 days (November 3).
