SN&R attended the Trump rally so you wouldn't have to

Didn’t make it to the Donald Trump rally yesterday in Sacramento, but want to feel like you did?

Be careful what you wish for.

SN&R contributors Blake Gillespie (who already has his recap here), Dave Kempa and myself fought the traffic, the heat and our pesky commitment to reality on our way to a sun-bleached area of the Sacramento International Airport for the presumptive Republican nominee’s pompous and circumstantial visit.

Amid the crowds, the protests and the swag, we stood shoulder to shoulder with dozens of other “scum” journalists to see what happens when The Donald deigns to visit your town.

Hint: It’s kind of like This Is Spinal Tap played as tragedy.

Here’s most of our running Twitter commentary of yesterday’s rally. (You can also find a more media-inclusive live blog at this Storify link.)
