Donald Trump Just Gave the Most Insane Campaign Speech Ever


Speaking at his first campaign rally in South Carolina on Tuesday, Donald Trump addressed his critics and fellow Republican presidential candidates calling for him to step out of the race.

He specifically fired back at Sen. Lindsey Graham’s comments calling Trump a “jackass” yesterday by giving out his personal cell phone number.

Keeping in line with his obsession over who is and who is not smart, Trump said of Graham, “He doesn’t seem like a very bright guy. He actually probably seems to me not as bright as Rick Perry. I think Rick Perry probably is smarter than Lindsey Graham.”

Other low-lights included in the near 45-minute stump speech: “If you can’t get rich dealing with politicians, there’s something wrong with you” and “I’m the most militaristic person ever.”

Watch below for the entire spectacle:
