Trump Campaigns for South Carolina Governor, and Talks About Himself
President Donald Trump traveled to one of his friendliest states Monday to help a supporter, avoid political embarrassment, and talk about himself.
While praising South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster during a campaign rally, Trump told voters that the "fake news" is all too eager to criticize him if McMaster loses a primary runoff on Tuesday.
"So, please, get your asses out tomorrow and vote," Trump joked to supporters packed into a high school gym near the Columbia airport.
While praising McMaster as an early supporter of his — "Henry was there at the beginning" — Trump recited a familiar litany of campaign themes while adding a riff on an unusual topic: Late-night talk show hosts.
Echoing a tweet from earlier in the day, Trump bashed NBC's Jimmy Fallon over apologizing for a somewhat gentle "Tonight Show" interview in 2016, including an infamous tussling of Trump's hair. "Be a man," Trump said of Fallon.
