President Trump claimed at a raucous rally in Sunrise, Florida, Tuesday night that he “beat” Barack Obama and falsely claimed that liberals are trying to change the name of the “Thanksgiving” holiday.
“As we gather together for Thanksgiving, you know, some people want to change the name Thanksgiving,” Trump said. “They don’t want to use the term Thanksgiving. And that was true also with Christmas. But now everybody’s using Christmas again. Remember this?”
“But now we’re going to have to do a little work on Thanksgiving,” Trump continued. “People have different ideas. Why it shouldn’t be called Thanksgiving. But everybody in this room, I know, loves the name Thanksgiving. And we’re not changing.”
Trump then raised a few eyebrows when he told the crowd “we beat Barack Hussein Obama,” despite never running in an election against him.
“So I get elected, and I beat the Bush dynasty,” he said, an apparent reference to running against Jeb Bush for the Republican nomination. “I get elected, and I beat — and again with no experience, I didn’t have experience, I have tremendous world experience but I didn’t have political experience — so I get elected and we beat the Clinton dynasty, right?”
“And then we beat Barack Hussein Obama and whatever the hell dynasty that is,” he added to cheers from the crowd.
♀️Trump thinks he ran against Obama. The crowd cheering for his statement are just as demented as he is.
