This guy will never learn. He continues to think he’s a good speaker; that he is a good story-teller, and that people genuinely love hearing him speak. While we do know that a little over 40% of Americans do like hearing him talk, (blame the education system) for the most part, Trump is much loathed, especially when his mouth is open.
So Thursday afternoon, while giving a speech about taxes, Trump apparently got bored and tossed out the carefully worded piece of paper his staffers were so desperately hoping he would read word-for-word. What happened next is pretty much the norm under Trump’s reign.
Trump said the following while literally throwing his script up in the air:
“You know, this was going to be my remarks. They would have taken about two minutes, but to hell with it. That would have been a little boring. Little boring. Right?”
Trump repeated his tired old claim that voter fraud was a huge problem in America, stating the following:
“In many places, like California, the same person votes many times. You probably heard about that. They always like to say ‘oh that’s a conspiracy theory. Not a conspiracy theory, folks. Millions and millions of people. And it’s very hard because the state guards their records. They don’t want to see it.”
Trump then dug through his bag of tricks for a few insults directed at Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.):
“So you’re going to have a chance to get a senator that’s going to vote our program. That’s going to help you in so many different ways. And you’re not getting that now.”
