I’m happy to report that my adopted hometown of Roanoke has survived another Donald Trump appearance. His rally at the Berglund Center on Saturday was underwhelming.
He faced a hall that was only half full. He spoke for just about 30 minutes and left quickly, not even wading into the crowd to greet supporters.
The main thing on display was the unabashed capitalism of the vendors, who lined nearly every available space along the street outside the building.
