President Donald Trump ridiculed his predecessors by embracing his own unconventional style during a Tuesday night rally in Tampa, Florida.

“I would say ‘well, it’s a lot easier to act presidential than to do what I do.’ Anybody can act presidential,” Trump said dismissing critics of his personal style. Trump then turned around and mimicked a typical presidential speech in past administration saying stintingly “Ladies and gentlemen of the state of Florida, thank you very much for being here. You are tremendous people and I will leave now because I am boring you to death, thank you.”

Trump continued in a riff, “I used to tell them all the time, the fake news, I would say I can be more presidential than any president in history except for possibly Abe Lincoln with the big hat. I don’t know. Abe looked pretty presidential, am I right? What do you think? He’s tough. He’s tough. I admit it, Abe Lincoln is tough! But we love Abe Lincoln.”
