Did you hear that on BBC? How amazing would that be.

Translate, please, DGR - you speak rudimentary Donald

I'll be honest I only saw the thread updated, which is why I commented.

If I was to type a "list of things I would rather do before watching Donald Trump live", the internet would run out of commas. And if too many people insist on watching Trump live, then comas might be a very real worry too.

I think it was there are boats, beautiful boats, amazing boats. We are speeding on a vaccine, we will be the quickest ever to do this so we win the race.

No vaccine 😒 Just Trump being a dick.

He looks like a spitting image puppet when you really look at him.

I find he's so clever, so powerful, such a master, that I can kind of tell what he's saying without words. He's kinda like manages to say something in all languages at the same time. It's a gift. You know ? People say "oh this is a gift he has", and it is. It's a great gift. It's the best gift to have. I mean Thanksgiving and days - birthdays, but this is a bigger gift. People just seem to know what I'm saying. I know people. They know me. And I know they know what I'm saying. Because ... well I've always known what I'm saying. Do know know what I mean ? You must know what I mean, because I am so good - so good - at saying. You want something said ? Then you need me to say it. Like now. I'm saying something - really saying something. You see. I am the bestest at saying. I don't wanna brag about it, I'm just saying.

(at that point my neural network hit a buffer overflow. But it wrote that in less time than Donald could read it ....)

He's meeting with nurses... He's looking forward to it. They're very brave... to be meeting with him, I assume!

"We're looking at numbers big numbers. We've never seen anything like it, we've got great people here looking at the numbers. It's a big thing"

I think that's the size of it?

Oh god - he's just been asked if most people would condemn the use of the term "Kung Flu" when referring to the virus

"No, they'd agree with it. It comes from China"
