That low, dishonest decade. Back when his memory and his dick both worked without so much chemical assistance — or at least that’s how the old man remembers it, now…
This rally is, of course, being touted by the usual Horse Race media hacks as “the start of the 2020 campaign.” Because Donny Dollhands isn’t the only one who prefers cheap nostalgia to real work!

(Spoiler for the Youngs, or anyone else who doesn’t remember that far back: Reagan’s people didn’t care about “the drug problem”, either. It just gave them a handy distraction from things like their Iran-Contra criminality.)
Trump telling people in New Hampshire that the source of the opioid epidemic are cities and immigrants. Real subtle stuff.

New Hampshire is almost all white, so Trump has to reach across the border and complain about Lawrence, Mass. (74% Hispanic) as a driver of New Hampshire's drug problem.

One of the solutions that Trump touted today for the opioid crisis is THE CLINTON FOUNDATION.
