Donald Trump has woman thrown out of his Connecticut rally who he thinks “looks like Hillary” [View all]

Last edited Sun Aug 14, 2016, 09:49 AM - Edit history (3)


Those wondering why Donald Trump would waste a campaign stop in the firmly blue state of Connecticut, at a time when he’s not even competitive in most swing states, are still left looking for answers after he offered a rally speech which was bizarre even by his standards. There were the half a dozen shout-outs to someone named Linda. There was the prolonged pondering over how the Governor spells his name. There were the insults aimed at the people of Connecticut. But most strangely, there was the woman Trump had thrown out of the rally whom he believed looked like his opponent Hillary Clinton.

On edit: Link to Rally

Note: just after the 13:45 mark, while talking about "the wall," he actually points to the audience and says, "I might lie to you like Hillary does all the time, but I'll never lie to Jacamo." OMG.

The rant about the Hillary lookalike is just after his "Brixit" (not a typo) remark which starts around the 42:15 point.
