Trump rehearses his lines

2020US ELECTION2020 DINKUSPresident Donald Trump has been rehearsing his acceptance speech in the lead-up to his appearance at the Republican Party’s online convention this week.

A White House insider told The Bug that Mr Trump has been spending most of his time in the Oval Office in recent days practising his speech for accepting his party’s nomination as its candidate for the November 3 US election.

“The President has been rehearsing an exaggerated stutter (main picture) which he plans to use in his opening remarks as part of a merciless attack on 13-year-old Brayden Harrington who stole the show at the Democrats’ online convention with his story about Joe Biden helping him deal with his stutter,” a West Wing source said.

“He’ll then have the cameras pull back to reveal he is sitting in a chair with his legs folded under him, giving his impression of Illinois Democrat Senator Tammy Duckworth.

“The President has a killer line he’ll use at that point about the Democrats and Joe Biden not having a leg to stand on.

“He will then segue into a parody of the Black Lives Matter movement by reciting a list of fictitious protest movements with similar sounding names, such as ‘Black Lives Batter’ for the anti-domestic violence movement.

“Apparently one of your own Aussie politicians did much the same thing some years back and it was a big hit. Did wonders for his career, I’m told.

“Then there’ll be more lines about the threat to democracy from radical lefties like Biden and the President will even briefly wear a blackface mask when speaking of Biden’s running mate Kamala Harris.

“It’s going to be pure Trump up to that point but we know at some stage in the speech he’ll have to go negative, and we’re working on those lines right now,” the West Wing source said.
