In his first rally since leaving office, Donald Trump gave his supporters what they wanted, elicited the predictable response from his haters, and reminded all of us just how feeble and tired-looking Joe Biden is by comparison.
As Trump took the stage at the Lorain County Fairgrounds in Wellington, Ohio, the crowd could hardly contain their excitement.

“On the evening of Nov. 3 the election was over and then all of a sudden things started closing down all over. We took a massive victory, they did, into something that should never be allowed.”
And that he has no intention of riding off into the sunset:

Trump, whose performance in the CPAC Straw Poll made it clear that he's the leader of the Republican party, made it clear there are certain Republicans he believes should be primaried and defeated, such as Ohio Rep. Anthony Gonzalez. The rally was held in Gonzalez's district, in support of challenger (and former Trump aide) Max Miller.
Mr. Trump claimed Gonzales used to ask for rides on Air Force One, “and the next time I heard his name, he was impeaching me.”
“He's a sellout, he's a fake Republican and a disgrace to your state,” Mr. Trump said. “He's not the candidate you want representing the Republican Party.”
Trump said Miller was a “trusted aide” and quipped that while he had “great people working for me, we had some real losers too.” Miller, in remarks before Mr. Trump spoke, said Gonzalez's vote for impeachment “is a betrayal he can never turn back from.” Gonzalez has stood by his impeachment vote.
As he did in his speech at CPAC and before the North Carolina Republican Party, Trump pointed out the huge failures in Biden's “America Last” agenda – especially Critical Race Theory and our “weak and ineffective” military brass.

While, as usual, the mainstream media and the Bulwark crowd spread falsehoods about crowd size, there were quite a few people who couldn't even get into the sold-out event, as shown in these videos:
