Tonight, the President of the United States gave an hour and twenty-eight-minute speech at the Spring NRCC fundraiser and managed once again to leave his guests stunned with his visible descent into preposterous delusion.
After revving up the crowd with some wild promises about how he’s going to singlehandedly fix the healthcare crisis in this country and gently ribbing his audience for being in the minority in Congress, things went off the rails.
First, he accused the audience of preparing to leak his speech to the media, despite the fact that it was being broadcast live on C-SPAN…
"Someone's going to leak this whole damn speech to the media," Trump tells NRCC in a speech that is being broadcast live by C-SPAN.

Before moving on to claim that the noise from wind farms causes cancer.

The president managed to combine two of his favorite subjects — hating on green energy and preposterous conspiracy — into one riff that is a clear example of how the wires are getting crossed in his grease-clogged brain.
Trump at @NRCC fundraising dinner: "I don't know about the United States, I think we're doing well, but I can run for the prime minister of Israel. That's what they tell me. You'd better be careful, I'll leave here and go run in Israel."

The weirdness didn’t stop there. He moved on and then took some swipes at his likely rival Joe Biden over the former Vice-President’s recent slew of inappropriate touching allegations and left his audience bewildered with a deeply weird anecdote about asking for a kiss from, uh, a general:
Trump takes another swing at Biden over accusations of inappropriate touching. He tells a story of a conversation he had with a general. “I said, ‘General, give me a kiss.’ I felt like Joe Biden. But I meant it.”

This is a very strange development in Trump’s ongoing love affair with our nation’s extremely handsome generals, who he believes could be in movies but aren’t because Hollywood discriminates against the troops.
Trump says the generals are right out of central casting, and you could put them in a movie, and he liked all of them, not just Raisin Cain. He says one time a general was put in a movie but didn't get an Academy Award "because Hollywood discriminates against our people."

For two straight years, his speeches have been growing more and more bizarre as the pressures of office and the paranoia from the dozens of investigations take their toll. Once again, his own party has been presented with clear evidence that he is unfit to hold office, and once again we can count on them to do absolutely nothing about it.
