Trump impersonated a CNN anchor — and a US president — during epic meltdown at Texas speech

Published

President Donald Trump offered multiple impersonations during a campaign rally in Dallas, Texas on Thursday.

Trump showed the crowd his impersonation of a president of the United States — and a CNN anchor.

“No guns. No religion. No oil. No natural gas,” Trump said. “Abraham Lincoln could not win Texas under those circumstances. Couldn’t do it.”

In fact, Abraham Lincoln could not win Texas when he ran for president as the state refused to print any ballots with his name.

He then showed the audience two impersonations as part of his 87-minute speech.

“I used it to say, I can be more presidential. Look,” Trump said, as he shuffled awkwardly on stage.

“All you have to do is look like a stiff,” he said.

He then impersonated a CNN reporter saying, “Texas is in play.”

That was a common theme in the speech, that Texas was not in play, despite the fact a Republican president had just flown to Texas for a campaign rally.

‘Warped by runaway egos’: Paul Krugman scorches billionaires like Bloomberg who think America needs them to ‘save the day’

Published

on

Michael Bloomberg is seriously considering running for president as a Democrat; Tuesday, the billionaire former New York City mayor officially filed paperwork for the March 3 Democratic primary in Arkansas. Bloomberg believes that Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders are too left-of-center for 2020’s general election and that former Vice President Joe Biden, a centrist, is running a weak campaign. Liberal economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman isn’t the least bit enthusiastic about a Bloomberg presidential run, and he stresses in his November 11 column that the last thing the U.S. needs is a billionaire coming in to “save the day.”
