Trump Rally, Ft Lauderdale, October 8, 2020

But I said to our First Lady, “Watch this tonight, Darling, it’s going to be.” And I turn to Lester Holt, number two show. I turn to Lester Holt, and one story was saying the games I play are stupid, another was about the environment, another was about something else, my stupid games, it was a bad hit on me, another one, something else. Now they went to the longest commercial I’ve ever seen.

COUGH cough

And then they went onto the second half again and again and again, she looked at me, “Darling, they say you play stupid games,” I said, “It’s impossible. The games I play are very smart. All the best senators tell me so. It’s impossible.”

SSSSNNNNNiff

The China Virus? I played a game all year long. The Economy, Dow Jones, I score great in those games. You know it. America sees it.

COUGH

We’re doing very well, and I am here to say after all these games: look at the prizes we won. Tremendous, really great prizes. Don’t we love the prizes, folks? Joe Biden hates prizes. He’s sleepy with prizes. We’re standing here with them, strongly. It’s the best warmth filling me, climbing like 401(k).

wheeze WHEEZE

I’m feeling better today than I did 20 days from now, and so are you, so am I, it’s what the doctors tell me. I’m so glad to see my friend Herman could make it to the rally today, they said the covid flu got him. But he is. There he is back there, everybody wave. But I’m at this tunnel, in this tunnel, heading towards a light. Small light to big! It’s really light, everyone’s saying it.

Look at the glee expressed by the attendees. Like the guy pictured in the thumbnail in the blue shirt– he literally dances through his insults of protesters. He dances up and away.

The woman who says “If you don’t speak English and you don’t contribute, get out” immediately turns away from the camera to walk away. Her body language says “I think this is a mic drop moment, but deep inside I know I’m scared.” Or maybe I’m projecting.
