Trump coming to Valdosta

| February 22, 2016


VALDOSTA – Literally minutes after confirming the Donald Trump campaign had not reserved space at the school for a rally, Valdosta State University officials now say contracts have been signed and an event has been scheduled.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump will hold a rally at the VSU athletic complex Feb. 29 at 6 p.m. Doors open at 4 p.m., according to the website

The event will be held the day before Georgia’s March 1st primary.

The Atlanta-Journal Constitution reported on the event Sunday, but local campaign coordinators were unaware of the rally, according to reports from the Valdosta Daily Times.

On Monday, VSU officials first confirmed to Valdosta Today that an event had not been scheduled, but a contract to rent the athletic complex for the event was signed and finalized minutes later. The rally is not a university sponsored event.

    Great this is just what we need another idiot in a city that is so full of them

  2. Camillle Castorina says:

    Thousands and thousands would disagree with you about Trump.

    • Bunya says:

      Obama swept to power to thunderous applause, as did Hitler. The support of thousands and thousands is qualitatively meaningless. And no I’m not saying Obama=Hitler=Trump.

  3. dixie&trixie says:

    I hope he gets the nomination so he can be embarrassed in the general election. Remember it takes more than the republican base to get elected he has offended Muslims,black,mexicans and women so please nominate him please

  4. George Scruggs says:

    Go to “eventbrite” for free tickets to the Trump event at VSU.

  5. Sal Monroe says:

    Is he bringing the hair with him?

  6. dixie&trixie says:

    Yes people take your cell phones and record and take pictures and post them so that everyone will know who their neighbors are who supports such nonsense and if they own businesses boycott them that will end a lot of this foolishness

    • De'Marquise Elkins says:

      Leftists are all about their little lynch mobs. “BOYCOTT THEIR BUSINESS!!” Riggghht. Doubt you dimwits give them much business anyway, and a boycott just means the business owners don’t have to deal with people like you. You can start with my own start-up.

      • dixie&trixie says:

        If you are in business to not make money go ahead and make the name of your business public so my thousands of followers can know what business not to support

        • De'Marquise Elkins says:

          Your thousands of followers are not my paying clients anyway, and I will do just fine without you. Do your worst.

    Ok here it comes the low information uneducated crowd
    ◾Not particularly ideological….20 percent of Trump’s supporters describe themselves as “liberal” or “moderate,” with 65 percent saying they are “conservative” and only 13 percent labeling themselves as “very conservative.”
    ◾A bit older, less educated, and less affluent than the average Republican.
    ◾Slightly over half are women.
    ◾About half are between 45-64 years of age, 34 percent over 65, and less than 2 percent younger than 30.
    ◾One half of his voters have a high school education or less, compared to 19 percent with a college or post-graduate degree.
    ◾Slightly over a third of his supporters earn less than $50,000 per year, while 11 percent earn over $100,000 per year.

    CHUMP 2016!

  9. Robert says:

    Well….the way things look now, he will make a better President than Hillary. C’mon, we’ve made it through 8 years of Obama. This can’t be any worse.

    Dixie&trixie. The city may be full of idiots and the two of you just confirmed that the two of you are in the lead. I suppose you two are Bernie Sanders lovers. Do you think the two of you can live on a nickel out of every dollar you make? Good old Bernie wants 95percent of every dollar you make so he can pay for all the FREE college and all the freebies he is promising to everybody. Also we would be living as the people do in Russia and Cuba. You do know what a communist socialist is, don’t you? Quit being naive. And to the other person about Donald’s hair. Yes the hair and the rest of him too will be coming. Open your eyes people.

    • dixie&trixie says:

      I have not said 1 time who I’m supporting in this election but if you must know its the only person on the stage that speaks like an adult and that would be John Kasick not some blow hard egomaniac and why does everyone else have to open their eyes because we don’t see things as you see them maybe we have opened our eyes and don’t like Trump so find some more talking points clown

  11. Bobby Clark says:

    Hope TRUMP Gets it , This Country needs Jobs created and Jobs brought back into this Country . Something the Current administration has failed to do . We need a leader that can take the country forward !

    • blacksheep says:

      So Bobby don’t let a little thing like facts get in the way, how many jobs were the country losing a month before President Obama took office and yes I did say President Obama because that’s who he is I’ll wait for you to go to fox news and find a false answer

  12. S Starling says:

    Trump is rude and crude, but he doesn’t have time to whine and dine. For every stone thrown he’s revealed some truths.

    You, the people, all of you, the humanity entitled to your freedoms putting your rights above his; how dare he speak his mind to spark a nation that sleeps. It makes you look bad as you sit day after day on your thrones when you realize deep down that a promise no longer stands on smiles and empty handshakes. That all you’ve pretended to be isn’t enough.

    I’m just mad in general. Somehow he got the ball. He’s running! His knuckles are broken, he tastes blood in his mouth. He keeps going, breaking blocks left and right and the only sound is his heart pounding; something only a few appreciate. A mom up a 4 am running before waking her kids, the surgeon drowning out chaos into mastery for 12 hours; flawless execution of dreams and actual work, a living, fighting work of art.

    And, to each his own according to his own ability. This is the core of your existence. Embrace that.

    Ross Perot, what a funny guy.

    A short little mushroom man walks into a bar. He sees a cute Lil purple mushroom and wants to ask her out, she has a petulant frenzy. And hes like what? I’m just a fungi.

    We’re going. Can’t stand the guy, but it’s like a train wreck. And I want to see if he’s really that orange in real life.
