PoliticsDonald Trump Has No Idea How to Hold a Dang Baby
The GOP nominee breaks out his best Rafiki impression in Pennsylvania.
Donald Trump has a famously fraught relationship with babies. (The fact that the story about him kicking one out of his rallies was eventually debunked is still one the greatest disappointments in an election cycle full of them.) But he's going to have a tougher time explaining away his antics Tuesday night, when he capped off a rousing speech on childcare finance by, uh, demonstrating a breathtaking lack of knowledge about how to handle a small child.
Feel free to prepare your The Lion King: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack cassette and play "Circle of Life" at max volume as you watch him instantaneously destroy whatever fleeting goodwill he had generated with parents in attendance:
Note the form. Donald Trump holds a baby like every terrified adolescent male whose second cousin's eight-week-old is hastily thrust into his arms at a family reunion. Oh no, what do I do? Better keep both hands on it all times, JUST TO BE SAFE, oh God someonepleasetakethisthingawayfromme.
Parents, take note: No matter how fondly you remember the dulcet tones of Robert Guillaume's Rafiki, be smart. Do not hand your babies over to Donald Trump. (As if you needed any more reasons not to do so.)
