A surprise guest made a special appearance at Donald Trump’s Arizona rally yesterday: Mr Nigel Farage, all the way from England, somehow. (Apparently he’s been granted a ‘travel exemption’. How convenient!).
Farage turned up inexplicably to heap bizarre and unfounded praise on Trump, which apparently carries more weight if expressed with an English accent.
So @Nigel_Farage gives a barnstorming endorsement to @realDonaldTrump ... https://t.co/tKezUssq8F
Closing what was effectively a job pitch, Farage said a vote for Trump was a vote for “decency [and] plain speaking”.
From Trump’s speech at the same rally:
It’s crazy. I love you too. Nobody knows what happened. The fake news, look at all of them back there. That’s a lot of fake news back there. Look at that. Those red lights just went off. Anytime I refer to them, they turn the light off very quickly. They don’t want to have it broadcast when I call CNN bad names.
Hispanic American families saw their net worth skyrocket by 64%. And I’m sitting in the hottest sun I’ve ever felt. This is hot. My last stop also in your great state, it had a different problem. The sun was hot. I’ve never seen wind like that.
It’s lucky I don’t need teleprompters like Sleepy Joe because the teleprompters were falling down. They were going all over the place. I was getting a headache. I’m trying to look. But I have a good memory.
I remember things unlike the sleepy one. He’s in a lid again. Did you know that, fellas? He’s in lid. This guy’s in a lid every single day. Lid, that refers to a garbage can. They put the lid on the can. He’s in his basement.
Ah yes, that good ol’ decency and plain speaking, just like Grandma used to!
