Norm MacDonald took a break from comedy Thursday to go on an hours-long tweetstorm praising President-elect Donald Trump and why he thinks the controversial Republican will one day be a “beloved” president.
“From where I was sitting, not knowing a thing about policy, I noticed a couple of things,” he continued. “Both candidates had very high unfavorables but one, Trump, was lighthearted and charming, the other strident.
“It became clear Hillary was trying to run out the clock but I think the American people were on to that and didn’t like it,” he added.
“Then there was the rhetoric. Hillary called Trump supporters both deplorable and irredeemable,” the stand-up comedian wrote. “Hillary could not be more stupid than to refer to his followers as deplorable, galvanizing them to their candidate.
“The conventional wisdom is that Trump bullied his way to the white house but I don’t think that’s how a lot of people saw it,” he wrote. They saw a guy being laughed at by the media throughout, his every victory minimized.
“A lot of people say how could such a rich man be a voice for the poor man. Of course, the Clintons are also very rich,” Mr. MacDonaldcontinued. “But, I believe if you are a guy working on a construction site and you saw Trump, you might say, ‘Hey, thats how I’d be if I hit it rich.’ “
“I believe there is a good chance that Trump will become a beloved President and I will tell you why,” Mr. MacDonaldtweeted. “Trump wanted money. He got it. Women. Got them. Power. Got it. And it is clear what Trump wants now. Love. Don’t bet against him getting it.”
