WTF?!? Donald Trump Compared His Biker Rally Speech To MLK’s ‘I Have A Dream’ Speech

Trump compares speech to MLK's 'I Have A Dream' speech.

Leading GOP windbag Donald Trump released a ton of hot air in his speech yesterday at the annual Rolling Thunder rally, held at the Reflecting Pool near the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC.

Although Trump’s rally speech was shorter than usual (he prefers talking in tweets of 140 characters), he made sure to include all his Tweeter-in-Chief talking points:

Best, greatest, terrific, believe me, let me tell you that, make America great again, blah blah blah.

The Rolling Thunder speakers program was covered by all the media outlets which, like CBS News, reports Trump’s assertion that nearly half a million people attempted to attend his speech.

Trump – Exaggerator-in-Chief

“We have the biggest rallies by far, far bigger than Bernie Sanders,'” he told a crowd in front of the Lincoln Memorial on the National Mall. “Far bigger. I mean, look at today. They say you have 600,000 people here trying to get in.”

Just who “they” were, Trump never said. Perhaps he meant his two own eyes, always blind to what’s real and what he just makes up all the time. Truth be told, the crowd count wasn’t available, and the space in front of the Lincoln Memorial was far from filled up.

And don’t go blaming media for speaking the truth, Donald. People are wising up to your BS.

Trump said he expected his speech would be reminiscent of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., referring to King’s 1963 “I Have A Dream” speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

“I thought this would be like Dr. Martin Luther King where people were lined up from here all the way to the Washington Monument,” he said. “But unfortunately they aren’t allowed to come in.”


More like America has a scary nightmare with this man’s candidacy for President of the United States, leader of the free world.

Donald, you are nothing like Martin Luther King, Jr. And there will never be a Washington monument erected to celebrate your life’s work on behalf of Americans. MLK Jr., worked for civil rights, not taking rights away from citizens. Your life, in the end, won’t get a shout-out, or even a hat tip from Americans, let me tell you that.

Albeit shorter-than-usual, Trump’s speech was still chock-full of his ego. He bragged again about his NRA endorsement, as example. Yeah, well, you know what NRA stands for in the books of many? No Rational Adults.

Trump also promised, once again, to release the list of veterans’ groups that have received the so-called “$6 million” he said he’s raised for them. But don’t count on it. He’s been promising that for weeks. Heck, the man still hasn’t donated the $1 million he pledged.


Before departing the stage, he made sure to include the same-old lines:

“We don’t win with military we don’t win with health care, we don’t win with borders, we don’t win with anything,” he said, adding that if he becomes president, “We are going to start winning again and we’re going to win so much, we’re going to win win win. Some of you, my friends in particular, they’ll call me up and say, ‘Mr. President, don’t win so much, it’s not nice.'”

I have a question for Donald Trump: If he thinks our country is in such lousy shape, why didn’t he do something to help make it great again before he ran for President?

Donald Trump does way too many things his supporters complain about all the time. He outsources product line manufacturing to Mexico and China. He pays for cheap goods and labor, sometimes illegal labor. His bad business dealings, like Trump casino bankruptcies, have wreaked economic havoc on cities and their residents, and other US taxpayers who have to eat his failure with their own hard-earned dollars. And we can’t forget the 100+ federal lawsuits against him for bad, potentially fraudulent business dealings.

I could go on but you get the point.

Donald Trump is no leader. A true leader does well by encouraging everyone to succeed, not just a select few he happens not to hate.

That’s what Trump truly is, you know, a Hater-in-Chief.
