"THE SELF-APPLAUDING PRESIDENT"...but will he go Blind?

Ever notice Donald Trump chronically applauds himself - isn't that like Mastur...

I don't know - that's why I'm asking you!

I first noticed Trump applauding himself at his Campaign Rallies where he was his own Cheerleader.

But, boy did he blow his own horn at the State of the Union Address & I almost missed it  - I was too mesmerized by the Pence-Pez Dispenser behind him doing his thing!

Let's face it - clapping along with an audience serves a purpose - it's a cheap way to get the audience to mimic you. 

Trump's no fool - he knows exactly when to clap - he gets his followers to forget what he just said because they're too busy clapping - you know...The Simon Sez approach or Monkey See, Monkey Do!

I'll admit, as a former 80's Stand-Up Comic; I've caught myself laughing after telling a joke - but with my Act; I had to - I'm allergic to Tomatoes!

Take my joke - "My husband says Sex is like Golf - you don't have to be good at it to enjoy it...he's telling me"!

I'd giggle & then go on to "Take my daughter, please - she's more like my husband every day & a lot like her father too"!

Oh no - I didn't laugh after all my jokes - I have some pride left.  If they didn't like one; I would say,

"If you don't want to laugh - cough, okay - at least it sounds like a laugh"!

And, sometimes I would say, "I'm hearing these for the 1st time too"!  And, then I surely would laugh.

Lots of Comics laughed after telling a joke - Phyllis Diller called it 'nerves' & rising star, Eddie Murphy (when he was in character) had a honking guffaw & endeared us all.

For a Comic, if we pre-laugh - it's a plus; it can change the pacing & can assist or even save a joke.  So, I figure - by clapping for himself; Trump saved his rump over & over again - without ever letting on.

Me?  I'd rather have a laugh than applause.  No 'Standing O' for me: heck - if the laugh turns into a fart - that's nirvana!

Why, thank you!  ha ha

As you can see, I'll even go into my Toilet Humor desperation bag to make the evening a success - but not this time!

My Editor wanted to call this "Trump gives himself the Clap" but I heard there's a Medical Gag Order after the leak - no, Trump didn't write another Tweet...

Masturbation has caused tRump to go blind, at least when it comes to the pain and suffering of others.

And speaking of clapping – I wonder how many times Mr Proudly Promiscuous as caught the clap?
