Donald Trump held a rally in Anchorage, Alaska on Saturday ahead of the 2022 midterms. The former president went there to support Sarah Palin, who’s running for US Congress, and to damage Senator Lisa Murkowski, whom he views as a RINO (Republican In Name Only). During the speech, Trump dropped an f-bomb to get the crowd’s attention. This shouldn’t matter much, however, the Republican Party claims to be the party of civility and family values and they don’t tolerate when Democratic presidents behave this way. At another point in the speech, Trump took credit for the COVID vaccine development, but recognized that that could upset some of the anti-vaxxers in the crowd. So he said, “but we did so much in terms of therapeutics and a word that I’m not allowed to mention but I’m still proud of that word. . . . but I’m not mentioning it in front of my people.” To wrap up the night, Trump brought up two people on stage who had shirts with pictures of Trump all over them. The ex-POTUS said, “I want it. I want that shirt” which prompted them to take their shirts off and give them to Trump. The cult-like behavior was on full display in Alaska and though Trump doesn’t have the iron-grip on the Republican Party that he once did, he still has a tremendous deal of influence over his own supporters.
