President Trump began the first of his three rallies in Pennsylvania on Monday with just more of the usual shameless lies and groundless attacks.
The Thug-in-Chief then uttered a threat that proved he can still outdo himself. And it was all the more disturbing because the people likely to suffer the consequences most keenly if Trump followed through on it included the thousands who were cheering him on.
The immediate target of Trump’s petulant ire was Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf, who had shown the temerity to suggest last month that the Trump campaign should cease holding mass gatherings that largely ignored the state’s emergency mandate regarding masks and social distancing.
