I kind of think a lot of news services started transcripts and then abandoned them.
Fluffy bread on the top, something else in the middle, more bread on the bottom
And that's not wholly unprecedented for his campaign rallies, which really are far more about him doing what he wants. The main purpose of these speeches is: he likes them. They make him happy, like nothing else does.
In other words, if he says something that's not true, the "fake news" will report it and correct him.
His inclination is to say things that aren't true. The fake news corrects him when he does.
He's saying this.
I'd love to see a reporter ask his press secretary for the name of the police officer who said this, so they can get in touch with him.
"Thank you, Mr. President."?
Even for Trump, I find that very hard to believe. It's a ludicrous detail, part of the mythology of Donald Trump as the put-upon Rodney Dangerfield who gets no credit for anything.
Salesman patter, like saying, "You're really going to see something, boy, let me tell you, you're gonna love this. You look great, by the way. Take a look..."
But I don't think he really "gets" the stock market, for that matter. Or needs to.
To give credit where credit is due: Cillizza himself *did* quibble with this one.
But Trump's true believers heard that not even the media can argue with this number, and they'll believe that.
I think he likes the number.
I SAY, YOU GOT TROUBLE!
Remember the Maine, Plymouth Rock, and the Golden Rule!
(Which, by the way, is something the media won't tell you about.)
Dangerous, dangerous trends.
We couldn't all be CEOs, or have 5-6 companies competing for us.
Well, you don't.
We keep hearing about how it's important to humanize Nazis.
What do Nazis say?
"You don't even want to cal them people."
As usual, Trump epitomizes and exaggerates something that's already ridiculous, which is: politicians bragging about not being politically correct.
That's political correctness.
Hmm, really makes you think.
Because it *could* mean internal borders, barriers to movement within the United States.
And unlike the other nightmare scenario where we all have 5 or 6 unfilled jobs to refuse, this one could happen!
But in Trump's mind, the party who parts with money is the loser.
If that's what you care about, you go where the deal is.
(Also, many of them reflected long-standing agreements that predate him.)
Trump's hats are finished in America, but made of imported materials. Notice he doesn't make a specific claim either way, though. He just leaves the connection hanging unspoken in the air.
I understand what he means: West Virginia had the second biggest GDP increase, after Texas. But he's garbling it so badly.
And look at all these promises. We will. We will. We will.
As in, there *will* be pie in the sky when we die.
Just try to stop Trump being Trump. Go on. I'll phonebank for the GOP candidate in the next presidential election if you can do it
If he hasn't called marines "soldiers" to their faces yet, I'll eat one of my hats.
Good, good, horrible.
As if badness is a matter of blood.
"San Franciso is a century city, in other words, a sanctuary city." He can't just say "I mean", because that would imply he made a mistake.
Notice that he pretends this was just something President Obama decided to do, unilaterally. And not the result of a lawsuit.
Carnage is violence that scares Trump voters.
"Merry Christmas" is everywhere during the holiday season, to the point that it can become part of the background, especially if you just sort of expect to see it.
But Trump tells you that it's brand new, and so you start looking for it.
Like this here.
(Or Homer Simpson accusing the phone company of making an explanatory video ON PURPOSE.)
And again. It wasn't pure altruism. It was denying an enemy territory and resources.
(See: Left Behind).
He's rehashing the election. In more detail than usual, even.
But the end... he *really* wanted to end on Make America Great Again.
