Trump Is Terrifying Again at Another Rally

At a campaign rally last night in Montoursville, Pennsylvania, Donald Trump oversaw a crowd that chanted for his political opponents to be jailed not once but three times, and then "joked" about serving five terms as president.

The crowd first booed Hillary Clinton and chanted "Lock her up!" which is a feature of virtually every single one of his rallies; and then randomly yelled "Lock them up!" during a break in his speech; and finally chanted "Lock them up!" in response to Trump accusing the FBI and Democrats of treason.

And then there was this, stuck in the middle of his usual authoritarian, nativist, and otherwise reprehensible rantings:

Now we're gonna have a second time, and we're gonna have another one, and then we'll drive them crazy, let me— Ready? [the crowd cheers]

And maybe if we really like it a lot, and if things keep going like they're going, we'll go and do what we have to do — we'll do a three and a four and a five! Watch — they'll have tomorrow "We knew he—" [waves hand and chuckles] I don't want to say it. [crowd laughs]

No, we're gonna have another one, and it's gonna be great, and, you know, one of the things we're talking about, the greatest, probably, I think, political slogan of all time is what you have on your hats: Make America Great Again.
Donald Trump always telegraphs what he is planning to do, often under the auspices of a "joke."

This is not a joke. The President of the United States is suggesting that he will ignore the law on term limits and "do what we have to do" to continue to stay in office for as long as 20 years.

Impeachment hearings NOW.
