Trump and his manos pequeños go to Mexico

So Trump went to Mexico for some reason and gave one of his patented "speeches that read like a word-cloud" speeches for a group of people who I pray don't speak English. Here are a couple of highlights:

I happen to have a tremendous feeling for Mexican-Americans

Yeah. We know. we know all about your feeling for Mexican Americans. It's a lot like my feeling for sushi. It's gross, I don't know who the hell let it in here, and I wish it would go back where it came from.

I happen to have a tremendous feeling for Mexican-Americans, not only in terms of friendships, but also in terms of the tremendous numbers that I employ in the United States, and they are amazing people, amazing people.

You know, other than all the raping.

I have many friends, so many friends, and so many friends coming to Mexico, and in Mexico.

Friends! Mexico! Lots and lots of Mexico friends! Going to Mexico, coming from Mexico. . .Friends! So many of them!
Ever since George W. Bush, it's getting hard to find a Republican who can string together a coherent sentence!


Nuh-unh! Try again!

  Steee-rike Three!                    

So you know that no matter what he said, his supporters were going to have to pretend that he did a  fantastic, tremendous job - really one of the best jobs - but some of these tweets. . . . 
 You know nothing of my work!

Seriously? Better than "ask not what your country can do for you" or "I have a dream" or "was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?"

Was it better than "it just doesn't matter?

I know she has to keep saying the most ridiculous things to keep in the public eye, but sheesh!

then there's Laura Ingraham!/img/httpImage/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/article_750/ingraham21n-1-web.jpg

Oh, his finest hour? That's not saying much, considering his next finest hour was talking about his dick on stage in a debate.

Oh, and speaking of which. . . .

FOX's  resident quack psychiatrist "Doctor" Keith Ablow for some reason brought up the Trump tiny hands moment at that debate that was like a couple months ago or whatever:

“When the ‘small hands’ issue was raised during the debate—that supposedly got the Clinton campaign very excited, they thought ‘Man, he’s off his game’—he wasn’t off his game at all. Freud would have been standing up, like applauding. Standing ovation.”
You know nothing of my work!

Why would Freud supposedly have been standing and applauding?
It's been a long time since my Psych classes, but I'm pretty sure that Trump understood defensiveness masking insecurities.  I'm pretty sure Freud would have thought "Damn, I've got to get this guy on the couch. I'll make a fortune!"
Except, you know, in German.

“To be able to address such an intensely personal issue and say, ‘Listen, there’s no problem in that department,’ to me, that showed an incredible degree of psychological strength.”

The kind of psychological strength you usually only find in every single high school boy on the planet.

Oh, yeah. It's pretty big. You could ask any of the girls that I've totally had sex with. 
You don't know them, they go to a different school.

You know what would maybe show some actual psychological strength? Just coming out and saying "yeah, it's kinda small. So what? I have many other fine qualities."
Or maybe just not talking about it at all. Just ignoring Rubio's dig at his tiny hands might have showed some psychological - well, not strength, exactly, but. . . I mean it's what any normal functioning adult would do when confronted by a juvenile taunt.

Oh, man - remember normal functioning adults? I miss them!
