Expounding on that headline, any self-deprecating words exiting Donald J.Trump’s mouth is more than sorta weird.
True, there he stands, larger than life, filming his Drew Carey Show cameo (circa mid-1997), playacting none other than HIMSELF and querying disparagingly. Hell, he’s even sporting his (even then) almost touching his crotch red tie!
Yep, that above paragraph’s Trumpian rundown is easy to buy into. Hell, “it is what it is.”
However, what is weirdly out of character is how he speaks onward to express lukewarm, sorta human sincerity and then extend generosity towards the everywoman / everyman working class. What a crying shame it’s ONLY Hollywood acting.
Hell, the Trump we know would ONLY behave in that manner, in real life, if such momentary largesse would buy him votes AND could simultaneously be written off as a charitable contribution… i.e., one that could be promptly and neatly itemized on his income tax Form 1040, Schedule A (which he’d never, ever release to the public like many past presidents have).
Seeing how Trump is not renown for ever poking fun at himself, his motivation for stepping before that bygone TV camera’s lens was none other than stroking his mindless ego… so much so, that he was likely oblivious to how he had, inadvertently, for a fleeting moment, behaved modestly and sorta human.
Just as he’s totally incapable of laughing at himself, he never laughs with the people he meets… only at them.
Hell, “it is what it is.”
