A rant from the best “angry comic” in the country, Lewis Black, about Donald Trump’s 2012 campaign run seems to be as relevant this year as it was then.
The video, which Black drew attention to by retweeting “Random Pixels blog,” features a typically-outraged Black ranting about Trump and the general state of U.S. politics during his Daily Show segment, “Back in Black.”

During the monologue, Black held up a Trump 2012 poster and said, “This is what I’ve been waiting for my whole life! A president who’s not afraid to tell the truth about being a lying a**hole.”
What this country needs, he said, is “a crazy third-world dictator, and Donald Trump has what it takes to be that,” adding he already has a “harem” and an over-sized ego.
As if to prove Black’s point, Trump said this during a campaign speech today in Iowa, according to Washington Post reporter Dave Weigel:
Trump on Iran: “Supreme Leader — that’s a great term. That’s like a term Trump would use. Supreme Leader!”

He then compared Trump’s swirling, trademark hairstyle to that of former North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il.
“Trump, 2012! You’re fired, America!” Black proclaimed.

Trump says militia that sought to kidnap and kill Michigan’s Gov. Whitmer was ‘maybe a problem, maybe it wasn’t’
In a startling moment during his Michigan rally Tuesday, President Donald Trump implied that the militia that attempted to kidnap and kill Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) was maybe or maybe not all that big of a problem.
“People are entitled to say maybe it was a problem, maybe it wasn’t," Trump told his rally.
It's a commonly used tactic by Trump to say things like "people say" or "some say" or raise hypotheticals so that it gives him the ability to say "I don't think that, people do." But he has never been able to cite the actual person that said that to him.
In this case, one would assume all political leaders would oppose kidnapping and killing a political leader regardless of the party to which he or she belongs. In Ohio they've opted for a gentler approach, merely trying to recall Republican Gov. Mike DeWine for his mask mandate.
Trump’s closing argument to women: ‘We’re getting your husbands back to work’
One week before the 2020 presidential election, Donald Trump made his closing argument to women at a campaign rally in Lansing, Michigan.
"I love women and I can't help it, they're the greatest," Trump said, four years after the Access Hollywood tape was released which showed him bragging about sexually assaulting strangers.
"I love them much more than the men," he added.
Trump also made an economic argument that sounded as dated as his talk about "suburban housewives."
"We're getting your husbands -- they want to get back to work, right? We're getting your husbands back to work," he argued.
Trump chants ‘COVID!’ ten times in a row after Obama slams him as ‘jealous’ of virus
President Donald Trump on Tuesday again complained about the amount of media coverage being given to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Trump made the remarks at a campaign event in Lansing, Michigan, where he reminded supporters that he had been infected by the virus.
"I would like to give me full credit," the president said of his recovery. "I don't want to give the drug any credit. I want to say, because I am a very young person that's in perfect physical shape, I took that virus and I woke up the next morning and I felt like Superman."
Trump then motioned to members of the media at the event.
