Trump’s Newest Unhinged Rant Compared To “Listening To Your Senile Uncle At The Dinner Table After He Has That Third Drink”

We really couldn't make this up if we tried...

Unless you live under a rock these days (which, I certainly can’t say I would blame you at this point) we’ve all seen Donald Trump’s most recent and perhaps most unhinged and deranged rant — you know the one — where he went entirely berserk about sharks and boat batteries and electrocution.

Perhaps it was the sweltering 105-degree Las Vegas heat that sent the scandal-plagued former president and 2024 Republican frontrunner on the fritz, but whatever the driving force may have been, we’ve all heard and seen the absolutely insane diatribe time and time again now, as it’s gone viral across just about every social media platform in existence.

In case you somehow didn’t catch it, or somehow managed to wipe it from your brain already, here’s a snippet of his tirade to refresh your memory:

So I said, ‘Let me ask you a question, and [the guy who makes boats in South Carolina] said, ‘Nobody ever asked this question,’ and it must be because of MIT, my relationship to MIT —very smart. He goes, I say, ‘What would happen if the boat sank from its weight? And you’re in the boat and you have this tremendously powerful battery and the battery is now underwater and there’s a shark that’s approximately 10 yards over there?’

So I said, so there’s a shark 10 yards away from the boat, 10 yards or here, do I get electrocuted if the boat is sinking? Water goes over the battery, the boat is sinking. Do I stay on top of the boat and get electrocuted, or do I jump over by the shark and not get electrocuted? Because I will tell you, he didn’t know the answer. He said, ‘You know, nobody’s ever asked me that question.” I said, ‘I think it’s a good question.’ I think there’s a lot of electric current coming through that water. But you know what I’d do if there was a shark or you get electrocuted, I’ll take electrocution every single time. I’m not getting near the shark. So we’re going to end that.”

Can’t make sense of a single word he’s saying there?

Don’t worry… No one can.

Donald’s apparent slip into full-blown insanity was so unhinged that even world-renowned author and public Trump critic Stephen King took to X (formerly known as Twitter) to toss his two cents in on the matter with what we believe is the perfect comparison for this situation.

Writing in the caption of a clip of Donald’s unhinged boat/shark/battery rant, King said, “This is like listening to your senile uncle at the dinner table after he has that third drink.”

If that’s not absolutely spot on…

As you can imagine, commenters were quick to agree with the infamous horror-genre author:

Sometimes it’s really hard to digest the fact that this is real life now…
