President Donald Trump showed off his comedic skills Thursday as he poked fun at the stereotype of being “presidential” during a speech at a Dallas, Texas rally.

Mocking his critics who accuse him of not being “presidential” enough, Trump said there’s only one president who could be more presidential – but, he’d need a prop to do it:

“Remember, I used to say I can be more ‘presidential.’ Look (poses). I’ve always said I could be more presidential than any president in history – except for Honest Abe Lincoln when he’s wearing the hat. That’s tough; that’s a tough one to beat.

“You know, it’s much easier being presidential. It’s easy. All you have to do is act like this, look.”

Trump, then, performed his impression of a stiff, robotic, emotionless Commander-in-Chief acting and sounding “presidential.”

But, if he acted like that, Trump said, no one would have shown up to see his speech at Thursday’s packed-house rally:

“And the media would love it and everybody would be out of here so fast. You wouldn’t have come in in the first place, when you get right down to it.”
