President Trump appeared to be having one of those grandpa spells in Muskegon Saturday. In town for a rally at the airport, Trump displayed a common side effect of the frequent traveler, i.e., the where-am-I moment.
After a series of rants about Democrats, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, former Vice President Joe Biden and others, he turned to attack Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), a congresswoman who doesn’t represent Michigan.
“Dammit, Minnesota, you better vote for me,” Trump told his supporters in Muskegon.

At other times, though, Trump was absolutely sure where he was, as the crowd chanted "Lock her up" when he spoke of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.
Whitmer was, of course, the focus of a foiled kidnapping plot revealed in recent days. Her accused conspiracists are the ones currently locked up.
