Yesterday presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump announced Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his running mate, and Trump made the announcement in the most bizarre way possible. As Ezra Klein of Vox noted, Trump spent most of his speech announcing Mike Pence as his running mate talking about his favorite subject – Donald Trump.
What started as farce continued as farce. Trump emerged without Pence. He spoke, alone, at a podium adorned with Trump’s name, but not Pence’s. And then Trump proceeded to talk about himself for 28 minutes. There is no other way to say this than to say it: it was the single most bizarre, impulsive, narcissistic performance I have ever seen from a major politician.
Watch Trump’s bizarre speech for yourselves.
