This one has me reeling. Max-level irony has been achieved.
Donald Trump wants you to know that Hillary Clinton is not running a serious campaign, as opposed to his very serious, professional outfit.
Trump framed his campaign as a serious White House bid, one that could be his only shot at the presidency, while dismissing Clinton’s run as the most “unserious” campaign in American history.
“We’re gonna make America greater than ever before,” Trump told supporters during his rally in Council Bluffs, Iowa. “We can do that. But if we don’t win this election, it’ll never happen. I’ll tell you what, we’re never gonna have another shot. This is it. The tables will be turned. Then it’ll be too late.”
There are many things you could say about Hillary Clinton and her campaign, but “unserious” is not one of those things. Her whole life has been about gaining this power, so to say her campaign is unserious is ridiculous.
By contrast, much could be said about a man who refuses to prepare for debates, clowns his way through rallies and interviews, and makes broad, sweeping promises with no plan to follow through.
Trump went on to detail Clinton’s destruction of devices carrying her emails and the reports of one of her aides even using a hammer to destroy evidence.
He also mocked her spotty campaign record and the incident at the 9/11 memorial service, where she buckled and had to be helped to her van.
“You ever see her chart?” he added, likely referring to her campaign schedule. “’She won’t be campaigning today. She won’t be campaigning today.’ This is day in, day out, and I’m campaigning — I’m saying what’s going on? Now in all fairness, she’s spending all of that Wall Street money on commercials, whereas I’m doing it the old-fashioned way, right? We’re doing it the old-fashioned way. So you have six weeks to make every dream you’ve ever dreamed for your country come true. You have one magnificence chance — it’s your last chance — to deliver justice for every forgotten man, woman and child in this country.”
Yes, he seriously incorporated a line from “Napoleon Dynamite,” but he wants us to say, with all we have seen, that it is Clinton’s campaign that is “unserious.”
Vote for me. I’ll make all your wildest dreams come true.
You can’t make this stuff up.
And at this point, I really wish I could vote for Pedro.
