Speaking at an Iowa rally, 2016 Republican presidential front runner Donald Trump went off on a vicious tirade against his fellow GOP candidates that was highlighted by an over-the-top reenactment of Dr. Ben Carson’s alleged assault on a friend with a knife.
Ultimately asking how “stupid” Iowans and Americans are to “believe this crap,” Trump was more showman than seasoned politician as he stepped out from behind the podium and acted out the stabbing while drawing delighted laughter from the crowd.
“He lunged that knife into the belly of his friend but, lo and behold, it hit the belt. And the knife broke” a mocking Trump explained. “Give me a break. Give me a break.”
“So I have a belt and somebody hits me with a knife, it’s going in because the belt moves this way. It moves this way, it moves that way,” Trump continued as he mugged for the crowd. “He hit the belt buckle. Anybody have a knife? Want to try it on me? Believe me, it ain’t gonna work. You’re not going to be successful, but he took the knife and went like this and he plunged it into the belt and, amazingly, the belt stayed totally flat and the knife broke.”
“How stupid are the people of Iowa? How stupid are the people of the country to believe this crap?” he deadpanned.
