CNN ran a story titled “Trump’s most shocking rally” following former President Donald Trump’s massive rally in Iowa on Saturday.
According to the network, a former president and potential candidate holding a political rally is “dangerous to our democracy.”
The article, which gives off angry teenager’s diary vibes, whined that “while Donald Trump has held several rallies since the January 6 Capitol insurrection, his rally in Iowa Saturday was the most alarming by far.”
Penned by Daily Beast columnist Dean Obeidallah, the op-ed moaned that this rally “was different.”

“This one was attended by longtime Iowa US Sen. Chuck Grassley, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds, Mariannette MillerMeeks (Iowa Rep.) and Ashley Hinson were among other Republican leaders. These same individuals, nine months ago, were critical of Trump’s involvement in the Capitol riots. But they now support Trump. This is politics at its worst — and at its most dangerous for our democracy,” Obeidallah asserted.
Trump was not his biggest problem at the rally, but the politicians who came to support him.
“You don’t need to be a historian to recognize the danger in a political party showing blind loyalty to one person. These GOP elected representatives rightly condemned Trump several months back for his involvement in the fake election claims that lead to the Jan 6 attack. With their presence at his rally this weekend, it seems they’ve now changed their tune,” Obeidallah’s whining continued.
Trump’s favorability score among Iowa Republicans is 91 percent.
“But who knows what Trump whim will be the next litmus test for remaining in his good graces? When even Grassley, Iowa’s longest-serving US senator, thinks it’s ‘smart’ politics to no longer criticize Trump for his un-American attack on our democracy and instead praise him in a pursuit of an eighth term in the Senate, it’s clear that the party is no longer defined by policy ideas but by absolute loyalty to Trump and his influence. To put it bluntly, today’s GOP is how democracies die,” he concluded.
