Donald Trump held a rally in Montana on Thursday, one of those non-campaign campaign rallies that his staff puts together so he can get his insatiable ego boosted. As usual, it was a stream of consciousness rant that at times sounded so unhinged that one half-expected men in white coats to come on stage and lead him away. Like this bizarre screed about how he draws more people than Elton John.
I have broken more Elton John records, he seems to have a lot of records. And I, by the way, I don’t have a musical instrument. I don’t have a guitar or an organ. No organ. Elton has an organ. And lots of other people helping. No we’ve broken a lot of records. We’ve broken virtually every record. Because you know, look, I only need this space. They need much more room. For basketball, for hockey and all of the sports, they need a lot of room. We don’t need it. We have people in that space. So we break all of these records. Really we do it without like, the musical instruments. This is the only musical: the mouth. And hopefully the brain attached to the mouth. Right? The brain, more important than the mouth, is the brain. The brain is much more important.
I’m just…what? Seriously, WTF? This sounds absolutely deranged. No, it IS absolutely deranged. This is the most powerful man in the world, for crying out loud, and he sounds like a 5 year old who had too much Nyquil and is just babbling incoherently. How could any American not be absolutely embarrassed by this? How? I don’t get it.
