Donald Trump Jr. is already coming back to Tampa Bay for Friday Clearwater rally

He’ll beg for votes on daddy’s behalf at Quaker Steak and Lube.

Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch thinks Trump is in for a landslide loss, and that’s probably sent 45’s re-election campaign scrambling. It’s also probably why Don. Jr.—who was just in town a week ago when Proud Boys showed up at a rally in Tampa—is already coming back to Tampa Bay.

The president’s website shows Jr. appearing at a MAGA event happening tomorrow, Friday, Oct. 16 at 3 p.m. at Quaker Steak and Lube, a Pinellas Park restaurant technically located at 10400 49th St. N. in Clearwater.

The website adds that folks hoping to catch COVID-19, err, the president’s first born, stump for daddy “may only register up to (2) tickets per mobile number per event” and that tickets are allotted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Florida Democrats have a 400,000 ballot lead, and Floridian approval of the president is tanking, but 2020 is uncharted territory, so don’t be surprised if the MAGA-faithful throw all your jokes back in your face after the election.
