We say it a lot — President Trump is actually a funny guy, and it shines through at his rallies. The problem is that one of the first things to go when TDS sets in is one’s sense of humor, and the afflicted take everything seriously. Rallies — and CPAC — are about the only times Trump gets to play off a receptive audience, and his love for performing really shows.
Here’s a must-see clip of Trump doing his impression of “Mini Mike” Bloomberg at the Nevada debate for the CPAC crowd.

I’ve been keying in on how effective he is with the raising of his voice for comedic effect. It’s like a trigger for the audience.

Great point. He'll often deliver a line at a moderate volume. Then repeat part or all of it in a loud, animated tone. Up and down we go, with a laugh and some facial expressions, some sarcasm thrown in. It's a fun ride.

The man was on FIRE today!
It really is a shame he can't run for a third term.
Maybe FOX will hire him as a contributor for the next presidential election. 😜

Thats just funny!!! Reagan was another who used humor so effectively. I was hoping President Trump would be able to do the same.

LOL! President Trump cracks me up. I love that he doesn’t hold back. Hate it or love it, at least you know what you’re getting and I love that! I don’t think there’s a fake bone in his body.

Imagine if Mini Mike managed to buy the nomination and had to debate Trump on stage.
