I've heard a lot of gunfire in my lifetime; that wasn't gunfire.



I thought I was hearing the sound of the rounds passing the mic, crack, and then the sound of a supressed weapon, no real boom, but something more like a pop.
The elapsed time between the sound of the passing supersonic round and the sound of the supressed shot also made me think the sniper hotel was pretty close to the mic......
There is a part of training spent behind the berm learning to determine distance to the threat from the sound of the passing round and the sound of the shot and the elapsed time between.....so I do think it was gunfire, possibly from a supressed weapon, pretty close to the mic.
Your mileage may vary....be cool.

Trump Does Not Get Post-Shooting Poll Boost

FTA: 

The findings also reveal that Trump's lead has narrowed slightly since the firm's previous survey, conducted between July 12 and 14, which put Trump two percentage points ahead with 44 percent to Biden's 42 percent.

In the week before the shooting, national polls had Trump as the favorite to win the White House, leading narrowly in the six key battleground states of Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, with some of the results falling within the statistical margin of error.

Donald Trump Suffers Shock Poll in Florida

FTA: 

Trump's margin is also narrowing in North Carolina, where he had a three-point lead over Biden in June. According to Redfield & Wilton Strategies' poll, his lead was slashed to only two points, with 44 percent of those polled saying they would vote for Trump, compared to Biden's 42 percent.

Biden is one point ahead of Trump in Michigan, according to the poll.

According to  "Channel 4 News"  the Trump campaign had Thomas Crook's father, the purchaser of the rifle, in its database as a very strong GOP supporter, gun owner and hunter. Apparently the database was compiled before the 2016 presidential election. 

On a "Gun Warranty Score", Matthew Crooks scored 0.99 out of a max score of 1. 
On a "Hunter Score" he score 0.95 out of 1. 
He was ranked 17th out of 19,320 voters profiled in Bethel Park, PA. 
The database summarized Matthew Crooks as a "Strong GOP" voter.

He was turning his head to the right to explain the graphic up on the jumbotron.  The one that showed how illegal border crossings were at an all time low during his administration.

If he was not doing that, the shot would have hit the broadside of his head and he would have been toast.

Again, I was watching the event live when it happened.  You could actually see some debris fly past the back of his head right before he grabbed his ear.  There was a little white mist in the air right behind his head.

It still floors me how anyone could say this was a staged stunt within minutes of it happening.  But the usual suspects gonna do what they do best.  Parrot their lying mainstream newsfeeds.  The ones that have been lying to them for years.
