Trump Isn't Even the Best at Being Long-Winded

Dictators (and wannabe dictators like Trump) love to talk for hours and hours. Part of the reason is that they have a captive audience of their own making. In Trump’s case, it’s because he has his own MAGA cult. Such is the way of malignant narcissists. But I have some bad news for the president: He was about five hours and eight minutes shy of the longest speech by the late Cuban dictator and long-winded master Fidel Castro, who rambled on for more than seven hours at a Communist Party Congress in Havana in 1986. (Castro also held the Guinness Book of Records for the longest speech at the United Nations, in 1960, clocking in at four hours and 29 minutes, according to the Independent.)

And if Trump wants to beat the late Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, he’d have to talk for eight hours longer than he did Saturday at CPAC. Trump’s not even the best at being long-winded and unhinged. Other people even did that better. What a loser.


Hehe. I wonder how many in the audience snuck out rather than listen to the loser rant?
