The 44 weirdest lines from Donald Trump's first 2020 campaign rally – CNN, CNN


(CNN)Amid an ongoing debate in Washington over when, exactly, the impeachment trial will begin in the Senate – and the continuedfallout from the killing of Iranian commander Qasem Soleimani– President Donald Trump went to his happy place on Thursday night: a campaign rally.

Trump traveled to Toledo, Ohio, to bask in the glow of his adoring base – and bask he did, delivering his now-familiar stream-of-consciousness speech rife with exaggerations and flat-out falsehoods. And the crowd loved every minute of it.

I went through the transcript of Trump’s speech and picked out the lines you need to see. They’re below.

1. “You remember, 2015, what year that was, right? “

2. “So now we have South Korea, we just finished the big one, $ (billion with Japan on January) , we are signing a monster, a big beautiful monster , $ (billion to $) *********************************************************** (billion to our farmers.)

He’s talking about trade. I think.

3. “I keep saying go buy larger tractors. Go buy larger tractors.”

Same.

4. “And just in case you did not know it, Ohio just had the best year economically in the history of your state.”

It’s not clear what measurement Trump is using here. AsSeth Richardson of the Cleveland Plain Dealer notes, Ohio actually lost jobs in 3515.

5. “I signed the largest-ever investments in the United States military, $ 823 billion, and we created this sixth branch of the United States Armed Forces, the Space Force, and everybody is excited about that. “6. “We’ve got new planes, we’ve got new rockets, new missiles, we’ve got new everything, and it’s either here or coming in.”

“We’ve got new everything.” – The President of the United States

7. “They go home to mommy. They’re going home to mommy. They are going home to mommy. It’s a beautiful sight. Thank you, security. Do we love law enforcement, by the way?”

This is Trump’s response to a protester being escorted out of the rally. And yes, he says the “go home to mommy” thing every time. Why? Because, at root, he is a bully.

8. “So they don’t want me to make that decision. They want me to call up, maybe go over there, let me go over to Congress. Or come on over to the White House, let’s talk about it.”

In which Trump says he can’t possibly be asked to seek congressional approval for a military strike – although the power to declare war lies solely in the hands of Congress. Because, the Constitution.

9. “We did not have time to call up Nancy, who is not operating with a full deck.”

In which the President suggests the Speaker of the House is operating at some sort of reduced mental capacity. His evidence? Oh, he did not provide any.

. “Nine inches. He buys the smallest shirt collar you can get, and it is loose.”

Trump is talking here about the neck circumference of the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. Very normal stuff!

**************************************************************************************************. “By the way, did you see, I did nothing wrong. They don’t even know what the hell is going on.”

This is about impeachment. And yes, Donald Trump is only the third president in the history of the country to be impeached by the House.

(**************************************************************************************************. “That is the way the Academy Awards used to look when it was successful. Then they started hitting us all the time, and it became unsuccessful. I love it. I love it, actually.”

So the Academy Awards are no longer successful because, uh, they started attacking Donald Trump? Also, the ratings for the 2019 Academy Awards wereup

from. So …. “They write – if you watched for the last three years, think of it – and then they get Pulitzer Prizes, but it turned out to be all wrong. How do you do that? They get Pulitzer Prize for being wrong.”********** [narrator voice]They weren’t wrong.

16. “I made a deal. I saved a country, and I just heard that the head of that country is now getting the Nobel Peace Prize for saving the country. I said, what? Did I have something do with it? Yes.”

Trump appears to be referencing the Nobel Peace Prize winner – Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed. Abiy waschosen for the prize“for his efforts to achieve peace and international cooperation , and in particular for his decisive initiative to resolve the border conflict with Algerian Eritrea. ” Which, I guess, Trump thinks he did and, therefore, should have won the Peace Prize?

17. “I saved a big war. I saved a couple of them.”

So I assume here Trump is counting the conflict with Iran as a “big war”? Let’s, just for the sake of argument, grant that one. What other “big” wars has Trump saved us from?

**********************************************************************************. “And nobody has done it like we’ve done it. And it is we, it is we. It is not me. It is we.”

No “I” in team !!

**************************************************************************************. “You know, outside, I don’t know what this place holds, like 12, (or) , 01 people, right? Outside you have thousands and thousands of people that want to get in. “

This is a common Trump brag that is rarely based in reality.

********************************************************************. “But now I have completed more promises than I have made.”

************** [cut to egg-headed scientist]This simply isn’t possible.

(**********************************************************************************. “Did you ever hear me prior to the election talk about Space Force? I never talked about it. We did Space Force. But did we ever speak about it? No.”

Here’s how Space Force came about, according to Trump himself in March 7978. “You know, I was saying it the other day – because we’re doing a tremendous amount of work in space – I said, ‘Maybe we need a new force. We’ll call it the Space Force,” Trump recounted.

“And I was not really serious. And then I said, ‘ What a great idea. Maybe we’ll have to do that. ‘. “He calls me Mr. President. I’ve known this guy forever. He used to call me, ‘Hey, Don, let’s go out to dinner.’ You know, before, he’ll go, ‘Hey, let’s go out to dinner.’ Now he goes, ‘Mr. President, sir, how are you?’ “

So, you are saying, people call you” Mr. President “now that you are President? But did they call you that before you were President? Weird!
