This morning Donald Trump announced that he is running for President. Again. How he or anyone can take him seriously is a mystery to most sane people. He held this announcement at Trump Towers claiming that he had the largest turnout of any candidate… whether or not that is actually true, it begs the question: how many of them did he pay or compensate with free rooms or the like?
Mashable tweeted about “all the times @realDonaldTrump has pretended to run for President.” He has done so in the 1988, 2000, 2004, 2008 and 2012. And again today… letting us know that he is a “very rich” man (who has filed for bankruptcy four times) and he doesn’t need money from lobbyists.
In this morning’s speech he insulted all other 2016 presidential candidates within the first 45 seconds. He quickly moved onto “beating” ISIS and China and Japan and Mexico and the Middle East… and insulting immigrants–calling them drug runners and rapists. Sounds like good foreign policy, right?
Of course, he also insults President Obama and lies about the Affordable Care Act. All to the hooting and hollering of “support” of what appears to be drunken attendees at this morning’s announcement.
The full 46:33 video announcement is included below, should you wish to subject yourself to it. And if you want to know what kind of crazy we’re up against it’s suggested that you do.
A couple of C-SPAN callers did. One of them thoughtfully points out that she’s concerned that Donald Trump might be on drugs. The caller right after her might be too.
