Mar-a-Lago started trending on social media late this weekend as entertainment gossip site TMZ posted a video of Donald Trump crashing a wedding there.
Trump used the venue to rant about his election loss and the Democrats once again - perhaps a continuation of his phone rant with Judge Jeanine that she cut short?
An exerpt from what Trump said on the video:
Y’know, I just got, I turned off the news, I get all these flash reports, and they’re telling me about the border, they’re telling me about China, they’re telling me about Iran—how’re we doing with Iran, howdya like that? Boy, they were ready to make a deal, they woulda done anything, they woulda done anything, and this guy goes and drops the sanctions and then he says, ‘We’d love to negotiate now,’ [and Iran says], ‘We’re not dealing with the United States at all,’ oh, well, they don’t want to deal with us. And China, the same thing, they never treated us that way, right? You saw what happened a few days ago, was terrible, and uh, the border is not good, the border is the worst anybody’s ever seen it, and what you see now, multiply it times 10, Jim—he’s the only one I know who would handle the border tougher than me. We have to, and the tough is… in the most humanitarian way, because that’s what it is. What’s happening to the kids, they’re living in squalor, they are living like nobody has ever seen anybody, there’s never been anything like what’s, and you’re gonna have hundreds, and you have it now, they have the airplane photos, the shocks, and they call ’em shocks, and these things are showing thousands and thousands of people coming up from South America and it’s gonna be, it’s just uh, look, it’s a disaster. It’s a humanitarian disaster from their standpoint, and it’s gonna destroy the country, and frankly, the country can’t afford it because you’re talking about massive, just incredibly massive amounts. Our school systems, our hospital systems, everything.
Irony of course is dead as Trump tries to portray himself as a “humanitarian” regarding what’s going on at the border. Give me a break. His administration separated children from their families - that’s unforgivable. A majority of those children have still not been reunited with their families.
Press play to watch the video below.
Donald Trump was already doing this dementia-esque ranting of his during his almost daily COVID-19 press briefings, so this isn’t really anything new. However, does he know he’s speaking at someone’s wedding reception? He looks more out of touch than usual. His handlers are probably just trying to keep him “busy” and happy as his mental state declines further.
