(Did you notice that Trump found some of those non-white folks to stand behind the stage?)
Personally I when I hear Melania speak I don't think "First Lady," I think "Bond villain."
However that was not he weirdest thing about this rally.
There was also this:
Now to be clear there was NO terrorist attack in Sweden.Trump, discussing terror, seamlessly mentions incident "last night in Sweden".— Steve Kopack (@SteveKopack) February 19, 2017

Just like there was never a Bowling Green Massacre.
They just make this shit up. (The New York Times identified a number of other lies during the rally as well.)
But this crowd gladly swallowed all of the bullshit whole.
It should also be noted that while 9,000 people DID show up to be directly lied to by Trump, that back in September that number was 15,000.
That is a 40% decline.
However there was nothing smaller about the crowds that showed up to protest Trump. In fact they set a record:
Hundreds of demonstrators — the largest group of progressive protesters in Brevard County in more than a decade — lined Apollo Boulevard before, during and after President Donald Trump’s rally, stretching from the AeroMod International hangar entrance to Airport Boulevard.
A loud chorus of boos erupted when Air Force One descended for landing across the street at Orlando Melbourne International Airport.
“Lock him up! Lock him up!” hundreds of demonstrators chanted in unison shortly before Trump took the stage.
Yeah I know, hundreds of demonstrators are a lot less than the 9,000 who showed up to hear Trump spew his bullshit.
True, but I never claimed that Melbourne, Florida was a bastion for intellectuals.
Besides one has to wonder how many of these folks were paid, or bribed, to show up?
I think the takeaway from this is that Donald Trump loved it when he was RUNNING for the presidency, but fucking hates BEING the president.
I mean just look at his face before the rally.
That does not look like a mentally stable person.And it's real. I just took it watching Cnn live. https://t.co/CnJB8GGoSI pic.twitter.com/heHWbTpLPA— John Aravosis (@aravosis) February 18, 2017
