Last night, a fever dream-addled Donald Trump performed free association, spoken word poetry to the unsuspecting people of Iowa under the guise of a stump speech. Trump clearly hasn’t slept in days, he’s repeating staple phrases though ever so slightly off, and he calls everyone cheering for him an idiot. It is, perhaps, the single most perfect example of American rhetoric ever.

The entire speech itself is nearly two hours long, which you are more than welcome to watch here if you hate yourself. But if you prefer to maintain your sanity to some degree, we’ve compiled the best bits for you above. Please, enjoy.
