President Trump this Saturday issued out a bizarre response to the scrutiny of his behavior as president, by attempting to insist that people would be bored if he were to act presidential.
During a campaign rally in Pennsylvania for Republican House candidate Rick Saccone, Trump shot back at a Wall Street Journal article that questioned whether or not he is “a good speaker?”
“You know, how easy it is to be presidential? But you’d be so bored because I could stand up, right?” Trump said to applause.
Trump then slipped into a heinous caricature of what he believes is a more formal politician, stiffening himself and speaking with a more nasally vocal resonance.
“I’m very presidential. Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for being here tonight. Rick will be a great, great congressman. He will help me very much. He’s a fine man and Yong is a wonderful wife. I just want to tell you on behalf of the United States of America that we appreciate your service. We appreciate your service,” Trump mocked.
“See, that’s easy. That’s much easier than doing what I have to do. But this is much more effective. If I came like a stiff, you guys wouldn’t be here tonight,” he suggested back to himself again.
Trump has been heavily criticized since he launched his 2016 campaign for trademarking a casual style of speaking and for viciously attacking his opponents in speeches and on Twitter.
