Donald Trump held yet another rally in Texas on Monday night, and it was quite a sight.
One of the attendees was Michael Lindell, the founder of MyPillow and Trump ally, who has been pushing for a “Red Wave” in the midterm elections.
Speaking to a reporter, Lindell said Trump “was picked by God to run this country” and that it was a “divine appointment.”

And that wasn’t the only crazy thing to happen.
About an hour before the rally was set to begin, InfoWars’ Alex Jones was spotted in the vicinity.
The known conspiracy theorist was caught on video yelling at what appeared to be feces, saying that Rep. Beto O’Rourke, who is challenging Cruz in the midterm elections, won’t talk to him. “Talk to me. Treat me like a human!” Jones shouted. After spitting at the droppings, Jones added, “Go to hell, Beto.”
He compared O’Rourke to Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., with whom Jones attempted to engage on Capitol Hill in September outside of a hearing with Facebook and Twitter executives.
Jones and InfoWars were banned from Twitter the next day.

Toward the end of the rally, Trump’s 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale sent out a tweet alerting his followers to text the word “Texas” to a phone number. Doing so wouldn’t bring you to a Cruz donation page or get you on the Senator’s distribution list. Instead, it got you signed up to “receive recurring SMS/MMS messages from Donald J. Trump for President” and the chance to win some signed Trump swag.
