6. after he said "They want to take your Second Amendment away" anything goes

he could have said "You'll have no one guarding your fizzbings and garbage lotion" and it would have been fine with his supporters.
because this is only meant to be a shout out to his base, an exhortation to conduct further armed rallies in the VA capitol.

is anyone addressing the preposterous claim of "They want to take your Second Amendment away"? that's the only message he gave a shit about delivering.

we're totally focused on the wrong details -- seems like he does this a lot. shout to his followers, but follow up with some throwaway piece of laughable nonsense that gets the media's full attention.

Trump says: "We're going after Virginia, with your crazy governor. They want to take your Second Amendment away. You'll have no one guarding your potatoes."
MAGAts hear: "Your governor is crazy, and trying to take your guns, but we will protect you." <-- actual message to Trump's base
We hear: "Trump is an imbecile who thinks potatoes need armed guards in Virginia." <-- fake distraction message to attract media outrage

that second one there, that's actually some really dangerous bullshit travelling from Trump's lips to GOP ears. let's try not to obsess over the shiny distraction.
