ORLANDO — As Donald Trump rallied thousands of his supporters in the home state of one of his chief rivals, he did something he not done before: He asked those assembled before him to raise their right hand and pledge that they will vote for him in the Florida Republican primary.
“Can I have a pledge? A swearing?” the presidential candidate said, extending his right hand into the air. “Raise your right hand.”
Trump then began leading them in a pledge: “I do solemnly swear.” The crowd echoed him: “I do solemnly swear.”
Trump continued: “That I — no matter how I feel, no matter what the conditions, if there’s hurricanes or whatever.” The crowd tried repeating that back, but largely failed in doing so. Trump reassured them that they were doing fine: “That’s good enough.”
Trump continued the pledge: “Will vote on or before the 12th for Donald J. Trump for president.” The crowd repeated the pledge and cheered.
Trump continues to have more delusions of grandeur and to get more Hitlerian. For those who are offended by my comparisons or believe the Hitler Principle is being applied….Hell, I am not the one out there raising my hand, pledging allegiance to a jackass. In fact, my father fought a war to get rid of that jackass. I am just noting the very obvious similarities in behavior.
Maybe its time for some of the Americans to wake up and realize what they have on their hands.
