After a fire marshal mysteriously enforced occupancy rules at a Donald Trump rally Monday, Trump held a press conference to mock the man for keeping people alive in a move that’s sure to reassure all the people living in or around Trump’s many properties.
It’s not even the first time Trump has railed against a fire marshal for doing his or her job—yesterday, he interrupted his own Colorado Springs rally to insult the fire marshal who enforced the building’s occupancy maximum, saying “They don’t know what the hell they’re doing.” (Just thirty minutes before, the Colorado Springs Fire Department had rescued him from a stuck elevator, so it’s just lucky that didn’t happen after his rant.)
This time, Trump explained, he only wanted to cram an additional 5,000 people into a 1,000-maximum occupancy room, which the Columbus, Ohio marshal denied for unspecified reasons. “Political reasons,” Trump said. “That’s politics at its lowest.”
