Back in June 2020 leftist Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf pushed several reforms to Defund the Police in the state following the death of George Floyd.
Governor Wolf’s reforms were meant to humiliate and put blame on the police. He accused state law enforcement of abuse, criminal actions, and unprofessional conduct.
David Kennedy, the president of the Pennsylvania State Troopers Association responded at the time to Wolf’s proposals, saying, “What Gov. Wolf is saying today is the Pennsylvania State Police, and all law enforcement in our commonwealth, are no better than those charged with Mr. Floyd’s death. This was clear when he ignored his own order and marched in Harrisburg this week during a pandemic with people holding signs that read, ‘Blue Lives Murder.’… So, here is a message to the people of Pennsylvania: Troopers go to work every day knowing they may not return home to our loved ones. ”
Kennedy’s comments on Wolf’s attacks on law enforcement made the news.
Fast forward to today…
On Saturday President Trump held a MASSIVE rally in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. There were at least 10,000 supporters inside and hundreds more outside the venue.
Democrats are infuriated the Trump is the most popular politician in US history.

This was after Joe Biden traveled to Pennsylvania earlier in the week and could not fill a high school gym — even with paid operatives.
While in Pennsylvania President Trump took a photo with several Pennsylvania State Troopers.
The Trump Team later posted the photo on social media.
Now Governor Wolf is investigating the photo!
He is so outraged that troopers sat with Trump that he opened an investigation!
Penn Live reported:
Democrats like Tom Wolf are OUTRAGED that they are so disliked.
Wolf can’t understand that after sh*tting on law enforcement for years that they would take photos with a supporter like President Trump!
Gov. Tom Wolf’s administration is “looking into the matter” after former President Donald Trump published a photo of himself posing with dozens of uniformed State Police troopers on his social media website when the picture was supposed to be private.
Wolf’s press secretary Elizabeth Rementer told PennLive “according to PSP, this was a private photo opportunity with the former president and it was not approved for use by the former president for public purposes.”
Wolf appoints the police commissioners who oversee the state police.
The photo shows Trump standing in the middle of 31 uniformed troopers, and five men in plainclothes, and includes a Pennsylvania State Police banner for Troop P Wilkes-Barre.
As of Thursday, the photo was at the top of Trump’s “Truth Social” website, which has more than 4 million followers. Trump, who was banned from Twitter, uses the account to attack his political enemies and share polls that support his potential presidential candidacy in 2024.
His former deputy chief of staff, Dan Scavino Jr., also promoted the photo on Twitter after the Sept. 3 rally to his millions of followers.
It was shared thousands of times on Twitter after a former federal prosecutor posted it, sparking outrage from people who questioned the propriety of troopers posing in the same photo with Trump on the campaign trail. Most police departments have policies forbidding political activity.
