5 of the most bizarre and jaw-dropping moments from Trump's latest rally

5 of the most bizarre and jaw-dropping moments from Trump's latest rally

Donald Trump is desperate to win Pennsylvania in the upcoming US election so that’s exactly where he held his second rally since falling ill from Covid-19.

And the POTUS didn’t hold back on his usual headline-grabbing antics.

During the rally in Johnstown, he compared himself to Superman, begged "suburban women" to like him and (again) offered to kiss both men and women in the adoring crowd.

So here’s every “unhinged” moment from his latest rally.

1. Trump compared himself to Superman

Donald Trump claimed he felt like “Superman” after receiving his extensive coronavirus treatment.

The POTUS couldn’t recall exactly what he took when he was administered a concoction of antibody treatments and steroids, but said:

I took something, Whatever the hell it was, I felt good very quickly. I don’t know what it was. Antibodies, I dunno. I felt like Superman.

He also promised “vaccines are coming soon, the therapeutics and frankly, the cure”.

Trump claimed he was “surrounded” by so many doctors that he never knew “so many existed before”.

That’s called privilege.

2. Trump offered to kiss a ‘handsome’ man in the crowd

During Monday’s rally in Florida, Trump offered to walk into the audience and kiss the women and men present to prove that he was “immune” from Covid-19.

He repeated this claim in Pennsylvania, but a little more, er, enthusiastically.

Trump bizarrely said:

I could come down and start kissing everybody. I'll kiss every guy. Man and woman. Look at that guy, how handsome he is. I'll kiss him.

Realising he may have sounded a little too enthusiastic, Trump quickly added:

Not with a lot of enjoyment, but that's okay.

Watch the full moment:

3. Trump begged ‘suburban women’ to like him

The POTUS opened up about advisors telling him not to call women “suburban housewives” and instead refer to them as “suburban women”.

He also said that he had been advised this demographic didn’t like him.

(Perhaps it’s because Trump once said he’d “grab ‘em” by their vaginas – but I digress.)

Speaking at his Johnstown rally, Trump said:

Can I ask you to do me a favor: Suburban women, will you please like me?

He then added:

I saved your damn neighbourhood, OK!

Save them from what though? If his rant just before pleading for the “suburban women” vote is anything to go by, zoning.

He claimed he “ended the regulation that destroyed your suburb”.

4. Trump concedes America isn’t ‘safe’ or ‘great’

Donald Trump claimed he made America “wealthy”, “strong” and “proud” again.

But when it came to making it “safe” and “great”, he switched to future tense:

And we will make America safe again and we will make America great again!

So, you admit you haven’t made America “great” or “safe” over the last four years of being president?

5. Trump ridicules Biden for moving away from Pennsylvania at 10 years old

Donald Trump will take any political shot at Joe Biden that he can, even if something happened 67 years ago and it was completely out of Joe Biden’s hands.

The POTUS (again) ridiculed Joe Biden for saying he was born in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

They say he was born in Scranton, but he left! He left! He abandoned you! Give me a break.

Joe Biden and his family left Scranton when he was just 10 years old and moved to Delaware.

But it’s not like Biden did it with any malice…
