Donald Trump made a feeble attempt to rectify his steadily declining public perception this weekend.
At a rally in Sarasota, Florida on Saturday, Trump tried desperately and pathetically to act like a completely different person.
I’m pretty sure he’s driven by the assumption that people want him to pretend to be something he’s not…a good person.
What people want is an ACTUAL good person; one who doesn’t have to be a complete phony just to be likable.
That person could never be Donald Trump, regardless of how good a show he puts on.
Still trying to scrape his reputation off the ground, Trump promised this to the cheering crowd:
“I would never mock a person that has a disability. I’m telling you, I would never do it.”
Well, we know that isn’t true. We saw it.
The conversation then goes back to his debunked claims of people celebrating in New Jersey after the twin towers fell in 2001.
Trump, still claiming to be credible, said this to the Sarasota crowd:
“Worldwide, the Muslims were absolutely going wild.”
The real kicker, though, is when a heckler interrupts the crowd, as at least one usually does at every single Trump rally.
After getting blasted for riling his crowd into assaulting the last heckler, Trump said over and over:
“Be nice to the person. Don’t hurt the person.”
“Do you see how diplomatic I’ve become?”
Yes, this actually happened.
This desperate attempt at not acting like a heartless drone comes just after a recent Reuters Poll in which Trump’s popularity dropped 12% from 43% to 31%.
