If there’s one thing Donald Trump loves more than plating things in gold, it’s rallies full of adoring fans. But what to do when the campaign is over and the crowds have dispersed? A victory tour—and why not? This is Trump’s America.
“We’re working on a victory tour now; it will happen in the next couple of weeks,” said George Gigicos, the campaign’s advance team director, who briefly talked about Trump’s first trip, according to pool reports.
The tour will bring Trump “obviously to the states that we won and the swing states we flipped over,” Gigicos said.
And so 30 states in all will have the distinct honor of just one more Trump rally, one more chance to see the president-elect riff on China; or demonstrate how he would grab a woman by the pussy, if he were that kind of man; or dismantle a teleprompter with his own two probably normal-sized hands. It is, as a co-worker pointed out, basically the plot of The Hunger Games, a children’s book/movie franchise about an oppressive, totalitarian regime that makes children fight to the death. Of course, there are key differences here; the hair in the films was a little more subtle.
You better believe the other twenty states who went blue are on Trump’s list, except New York, which is probably going to be fine.
