  • Florida Goes MAGA for Trump

 

President Trump officially announced his re-election campaign at a rally in Orlando, Fla., on Tuesday after bragging on Twitter about how many people were lining up to attend.

“You’re launching your re-election campaign? You’ve been running for re-election since your second day in office. You talk about 2020 more than a guy who just got Lasik.” — SETH MEYERS

“His supporters started lining up nearly two full days before the event. Apparently he hasn’t brought all of America’s jobs back, considering this is a Tuesday.” — STEPHEN COLBERT

“So many people are showing up that not everyone was able to get into the facility. So, there are big screens outside the venue, and before the event, they held an all-day ‘45 Fest.’ Yes, 45 Fest. MAGA-palooza. Old-chella.” — STEPHEN COLBERT

“He’s doing more for the people at his rally in Orlando than he did for all of Puerto Rico after the hurricane.” — JIMMY KIMMEL

One of Trump’s tweets suggested that the only people who can draw crowds like he does are those who “play a guitar.”

“Trump really wanted a big crowd for this. He was pushing it like a co-worker with an improv show.” — JIMMY KIMMEL

“He sees himself as a rock star, you know. [Imitating Trump, to the tune of Billy Idol’s ‘White Wedding’] ‘It’s a nice day for a white rally.’” — STEPHEN COLBERT
