Trump thanks ‘Mike Pounce’ and other weird, slurred moments from a speech at Republican retreat

1193

While the leading Democratic presidential candidates were hashing it out on the debate stage in Houston, Donald Trump was in Baltimore, a city he once referred to as a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess.”

Trump was in Baltimore to give a speech to House Republicans, who were gathered for the 2019 House Republican Conference Member Retreat, hosted by the Congressional Institute. As he so frequently does, Donald Trump slid into a schticky, stand-up routine, peppered with insults, slurring, incoherence, and, of course, racism. Not known for his speaking eloquence, Donald Trump was more off his game than usual and as we’ve seen frequently in recent days, he failed to pronounce basic words correctly, even mispronouncing the name of his vice president.

In the two clips below, Donald Trump slurs the vice president’s name and makes the claim Democrats are going to take all their money, hurt their families and the “country will go to hell.” Take a listen:

Donald Trump pivoted to the core of his stand-up routine, throwing around a racist slur against Elizabeth Warren, calling Biden a childish name and doing a bizarre imitation of the president of China. The handful of Republicans reacting to his racist improv sound like a paid studio audience at an about-to-be-cancelled network show.

And of course, Hillary Clinton still lives rent-free in Trump’s head. He couldn’t resist bringing her up and get this, he mocked her for a lack of stamina, claiming she doesn’t like stairs or airplanes. Of course, Donald Trump is seriously projecting here. He is rumored to have a fear of stairs and he frequently has an empty schedule after traveling to foreign countries.

In reality, as secretary of state, Hillary Clinton broke a travel record for the office. She traveled 956,733 miles, visiting 112 countries. Her flight miles were the equivalent of traveling the circumference of the world 38.42 times.

In the next two clips, Trump tackles environmental issues, bragging he rescinded Obama-era clean water regulations and then further bragging we have the “cleanest air, the cleanest water that we’ve ever had in the history of our country. Right now.” (applause). Hello? Pretty sure the cleanest air and the cleanest water were before the colonization, westward expansion, and industry revolution, but I’m just being nitpicky, right?

But, that wasn’t all. Donald Trump explained his hatred of energy-efficient lights, saying, “The light bulb. People said, what’s with the light bulb? I said, here’s a story. And I looked at it. The bulb that we’re being forced to use, number one, to me, most importantly, the light’s no good, I always look orange. And so do you. The light is the worst.” I’m not kidding. Listen:

In the next two clips, Donald Trump refers to “violent criminal aliens” (have we been invaded by Mars?)—again whipping up completely false and downright racist talking points about immigrants, who are “considerably less likely to commit crime than native-born citizens.” In the second clip below, he ominously warned Democrats are coming to take all your guns and leave you defenseless, another blatant lie. Democrats do want to make sure weapons designed for mass carnage on the battlefield don’t make it into the hands of unstable people. But just listen how he talks about it! This man is not well.

He also mocked Pete Buttigieg’s last name, saying it repeatedly with a mocking tone. One can imagine how much racism people who have non-Anglo names working for the Trump Org. even in the White House must endure from this man.

It is unimaginable Republicans stand with someone so completely devoid of morals, ethics, and competence, day after day, slur after slur, one bad decision after another. The entire party needs to be crushed next November.

Maybe he is competing with Alec Baldwin’s impersonation of him.

In the first place, when did Hillary get in the race. And I am still wondering what happened to the 25 amendment. This snow flake is out there man.

These examples of his speech are clinically significant in showing his mental decline, tangential and circumstantial speech patterns, no real subject or point simply his fav “talking points” or “stories” he loves….as he really tries to be a stand up comedian-ALL of it is ABOUT TRUMP prevailing, in his mind, over everyone else….being BETTER than everyone else and it is really some sick pathetic shit…..
