Trump people and their enemy. Plus: Got your grocery ID card?

Just a sample of the sad scene we faced at the Trump rally in Tampa. I’m very worried that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt. We should not treat our fellow Americans this way. The press is not the enemy. pic.twitter.com/IhSRw5Ui3R

CNN”s Jim Acosta has posted a brief clip of heckling he received while covering a Donald Trump rally in Tampa. Speaks for itself. But also from the Trump rally:
He told his usual lies about non-citizens voting (now becoming a means to obscure Russian election interference) but then he took his lying to a new level.
He claimed that IDs are required for everything else, including shopping.
“If you go out and you want to buy groceries, you need a picture on a card, you need ID,” he said at the event at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa. “You go out and you want to buy anything, you need ID and you need your picture.”
A White House spokesman did not immediately respond to questions about when the billionaire president last bought groceries or anything else himself. Photo IDs are required for certain purchases, such as alcohol, cigarettes or cold medicine.
