Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has built a reputation and image of toughness. One of his main campaign promises is to return America to a place of “strength.” Trump argues that America isn’t respected and feared anymore because it’s become weak under previous administrations.
For example, here’s a Trump ad addressing the America’s military strength.
So Trump’s reaction to a tiny invader during a campaign speech at a rally in Sharonville, Ohio on Wednesday night was a bit out of his “tough guy” character.
There was a mosquito. I don’t want mosquitos around me!” Trump exclaimed swatting at the bug.
Trump’s voice went a few octaves higher just before his small hand finally conquered his tiny enemy.
I don’t like mosquitos!” he screamed in an absurd voice. “I don’t like those mosquitos. I never did!
Trump tried to recover by lamely comparing Clinton to a mosquito. But it didn’t work; his man card was officially expired.
Twitter’s reaction wasn’t kind.

@CNN He's whacked out on coke or speed. Hope he has a doctor back stage. At his age, he's lucky he didn't have a heart attack or stroke.

Trump is always questioning Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s strength and “stamina.” He’s also the same guy who likes to brag about having a concealed handgun and shooting people in the middle of Fifth Avenue. But when it comes to mosquitoes, Trump’s bravado mysteriously disappears. Perhaps Trump should consider a new campaign song? We have a great suggestion.
