Trump in Bedford NH The words and the interviews

Of the swing states in the Nation, NH is one of the small­est. It’s a state where if you draw 500 peo­ple to an event you are get­ting a real crowd and The NH sports plex in Bed­ford NH as befit­ting a venue in this state is small com­pared to many of the loca­tions around the nation that Don­ald Trump has filled with Tens of thou­sands of supporters.

But while the venue was small at least by Don­ald Trump stan­dards the crowd that I counted at over a thou­sand peo­ple packed them­selves into the com­plex and con­tin­ued to pour in from the moment I got to the press table and entered the media area and even after Mr. Trump started speak­ing (in fact he com­mented on this dur­ing his open­ing).

Nor­mally for such an event I would arrive sev­eral hours early and camp out for the best spot but the neces­sity to sleep after a shift end­ing at 7 AM (I man­aged to get out at 6:15 to catch an early mass) meant that I arrived at the venue less than an hour before things began. The lay­out of the venue meant access was by effec­tive a long wind­ing dri­ve­way which added up to frus­tra­tion for the lefty pro­test­ers who our demo­c­rat friends always deploy for such events.

As soon as I parked my car I started ask­ing atten­dees for inter­views, the first per­son I talked to was Elaine.

I spoke to Joseph near the swag tables, there were sev­eral ven­dors sell­ing assorted hats and shirts

From there I came to the press entrance. Unlike the pri­mary days Mr. Trump now had secret ser­vice pro­tec­tion and I and my bag needed screen­ing to pro­ceed. I spot­ted Rick Santorum’s old cam­paign man­ager work­ing the event. He said hello and we chat­ted agree­ing with regret that the GOP had backed Rick had been the 2012 he’s be run­ning for re-​election this year. At the press table I was delayed because no mat­ter when I send in the request I never seem to be on the list, but was even­tu­ally rec­og­nized and approved and went through (and some peo­ple still won­der why I wear a 12 ft Dr. Who scarf to all these events)

As per usual sev­eral local pols came up to lion­ize the can­di­date and warm up the crowd before the stat, the most effec­tive of these was for­mer Sen­a­tor Bob Smith who spoke of Nixon being forced from office (and rightly so in his words) for his actions and com­pared Hillary Clin­ton group of 5th amend­ment aides to this. He also directly spoke to some of the con­ser­v­a­tives, some of them his friends, who have said they can’t bring them­selves to vote for Trump warn­ing them “Don’t come com­plain­ing to me when Hillary’s Supreme Court comes for your Gun rights.”.

It was at this moment that my com­puter choose to run out of power and I found myself need­ing to find an alter­na­tive loca­tion to plug in. I did a quick walk around of the area and after find­ing a plug in the snack bar was about to grab my lap­top to go there when I was informed that the press could not leave their area at the moment (indi­cated that Mr. Trump had just arrived) That’s when I inter­viewed Scott

Gen­eral Mike Flynn came on to intro­duce Don­ald Trump and drew a round of applause for police, some­thing that Hillary Clin­ton doesn’t dare to.

Don­ald Trump then entered the stage and the crowd that was still com­ing in went wild.

Trump talked all about Jobs Jobs Jobs From now on it’s going to be ‘Amer­ica First’” He talked about Hillary Rally in NH draw­ing only about 100 peo­ple as the peo­ple kept com­ing in. He talked about how Hillary is out­spend­ing him 501 yet he’s tied or lead­ing. He talked of both African Amer­i­cans and Lati­nos being given lip ser­vice by Democ­rats in elec­tion years and con­cluded by talk­ing Amer­i­can Cars, Planes, Ships and steel.

Once out­side I approached peo­ple for inter­view but my press badge didn’t help as I was held in sus­pi­cion by most. The first per­son who talked to me was William

He wasn’t all that impressed but he was a dis­tinct minority,

I then saw a long line of peo­ple wait­ing, I pre­sumed that it was held up due to the motor­cade but appar­ently due to lim­ited park­ing they had a bus shut­tle run­ning. I talked to Miko:

and Mel­ony

a Lady from Manchester

and a group from the Fitchburg/​Leominster/​Townsend area

And Bob

and Claire

and Rebecca with her sons (only one that came on camera)

Thomas who got a day off from classes to go

and Stan­ley a vet

and finally Dr. Truth who had a new book out for us.

The gen­eral con­sen­sus was that they like what they heard but wanted Trump to be more aggres­sive in the next debate. The real ques­tion is will he be and is it smart for him to be?

Of the swing states in the Nation, NH is one of the smallest. It’s a state where if you draw 500 people to an event you are getting a real crowd and The NH sports plex in Bedford NH as befitting a venue in this state is small compared to many of the locations around the nation that Donald Trump has filled with Tens of thousands of supporters.

But while the venue was small at least by Donald Trump standards the crowd that I counted at over a thousand people packed themselves into the complex and continued to pour in from the moment I got to the press table and entered the media area and even after Mr. Trump started speaking (in fact he commented on this during his opening).

Normally for such an event I would arrive several hours early and camp out for the best spot but the necessity to sleep after a shift ending at 7 AM (I managed to get out at 6:15 to catch an early mass) meant that I arrived at the venue less than an hour before things began.
