Donald Trump repeats himself, first as tragedy, second as farce.
Here's the latest trumpster fire going viral: The peevish Trump got flustered by a crying baby while he was giving a speech and...well, here's the headline from Politico
—"Trump boots baby from Virginia rally."
This is a trivial story, but it does seem to capture the choleric brat Trump at his Trumpiest. Like, let's stop being politically correct about crying babies, am I right?
Here's the play by play. First Trump is chill, weird and chill:
Don’t worry about that baby. I love babies. Don’t worry about it. I love babies. I hear that baby crying, I like it. What a baby. What a beautiful baby. Don’t worry, don’t worry. The mom’s running around like—don’t worry about it, you know. It’s young and beautiful and healthy and that’s what we want.
And then Trump is shrill, weird and shrill:
Actually, I was only kidding, you can get the baby out of here. That’s all right. Don’t worry. I, I think she really believed me that I love having a baby crying while I’m speaking. That’s OK. People don’t understand. That’s OK.
Trump's just-kidding, I'm-not-kidding, no-really-kidding, NOT KIDDING routine is like a Joe Pesci character.
This guy seems like kind of a wildcard choice for president of the United States of America but your mileage may vary.
