President Donald J. Trump had the audience laughing hysterically on Tuesday in Tampa, Florida with a fantastic example of what being “presidential” actually looks like.
Trump, with his tough New Yorker business attitude and blunt language on Twitter, has long been criticized for not being presidential and committing supposed embarrassment abroad. For example, remember the press that couldn’t believe Trump (gasp!) walked in front of Queen Elizabeth in England?
That’s why during his hour-long speech to Trump fans at the Florida State Fairgrounds, Trump noted that it’s much easier to “act presidential than to do what I do.”
Watch (below) as Trump opines: “Anyone can act presidential.” Then he uncomfortably walked away from the microphone, looking like a robot… or perhaps Mitt Romney.
In a monotone, quiet voice and with great comedic timing, Trump said, “Ladies and gentlemen of the state of Florida, thank you or being here. You are tremendous people. I will leave now because I’m boring you to death. Thank you.”
Then, with a Charlie Champlin shuffle, moved off the podium before waving his hands dismissively at the audience.
Trump added, “I used to tell them all the time, the fake news, I’d say, ‘I can be more presidential than any president in history except for possibly Abe Lincoln with the big hat.”
It’s hard to compete with President Lincoln: “”Abe looked pretty presidential, right? He’s tough. I admit it, Abe Lincoln is tough, but we love Abe Lincoln.”
Watch (below) for what will certainly go down as a classic moment of the Trump presidency. Too funny!
