Small crowds, rants about sharks, fat-shaming his own supporters…it’s been quite a campaign for Trump.
When he claimed that a million people had requested tickets to his Tulsa, Oklahoma rally and boasted about a sold-out crowd, and then this happened:
When he danced to the YMCA onstage, which prompted a viral TikTok imitation that the Trump family proudly shared — not realizing the woman who created the video was making fun of him.
When he managed to get a celebrity endorsement from the rapper Lil Pump, and then introduced him to the crowd as “Little Pimp.”
When he spent literally 14 minutes at a rally talking about how he can actually walk down ramps normally, despite a viral video showing him doing it weirdly.
When he proved he can drink a glass of water, to enormous applause from his fans.
When he concluded a rally by saying, “Nobody wants me,” complaining that it was too cold, and then dancing off the stage.
When he revealed that he doesn’t want to do anything to help save sharks, because he’s “not a big fan of sharks.” (He is alleged to be terrified of sharks.)
When he played the Titanic theme song, “My Heart Will Go On,” at a rally, apparently unaware that the movie is quite literally about a sinking ship.
When he started to tell the crowd that this election wasn’t about him, it was about them — but then he changed his mind.
When he pointed to a truck in the crowd, said he wanted to get inside it, and “drive the hell out of here…just get the hell out of this.” He then bemoaned that he used to have “such a good life.”
When he complained that he can’t call Ivanka beautiful “because she’s my daughter.”
When he claimed to be immune from COVID-19, and then said he wanted to prove it by going into the audience and kissing all the men “and the beautiful women.”
All of the many times he played songs at his rallies, only to have the artists who created those songs tell him he wasn’t allowed to use their music anymore.
When he shamed one of his own supporters for his weight, saying “that guy’s got a serious weight problem” and that he needs to “go home and start exercising,” all because he mistook the man for a protestor.
And finally, when his rallies gave an estimated 30,000 people COVID and caused more than 700 deaths, according to a Stanford study.
