Donald Trump Stopped In The Middle Of A Speech To Wave At A Boat Because, Of Course

The President of the US wanted to say hello to the captain

MOST POPULAR

Whether you're on a boat, a ferry or even one of those embarrassing tour buses your parents insist you sit on for several hours to 'really get to know' a new city, it's not uncommon to throw the occasional wave to passersby.

'Meh, I'll never see them again. Who cares if I look a bit barmy?,' you think as you practice your best royal wave.

Only, and only on this occasion, is it okay to stop mid-sentence and wave your hand in the air at people.

However, it's probably not the best idea to do so when you're the President of the US and in the middle of a speech discussing 'ObamaCare victims' and plans to upgrade the country's inland waterway systems.

Yeah, Trump, we're looking at you.

Yesterday, the politician reportedly paid a visit to Cincinnati, Ohio to meet with the health service's 'victims' (his words, not ours) and talk about his plans to make the US 'become a museum of former glories'.

During his visit, the 70-year-old gave a speech at the Rivertown Marina but seemed far more interested with the boats than his script.

'We're going to restore America's industrial might,' he said at one point.

'And I look here, and, something, those barges, they've been waiting for us to say hello. The captain says please wave. Hello, Captain,' he said before turning to wave at the boat.

Of course, Twitter had a field day with Trump's wave.

To be fair, Trump probably hasn't had this much fun since driving around the White House driveway, honking the horn and pretending to drive.

Later, we suppose Trump had a bottle feed and bedtime story from Ivanka.
