In a political season that is one of the weirdest in recent memory, one video stands above the rest as being the weirdest most awkward video of 2016 politics. So far.
It happened after a Trump event as he was walking away. He thought the thing was over, but he was brought back on stage so that a smiling young man could serenade him with a really weird cover of a classic oldie, “Stand By Me.”
The rest is creepy history:
The video went immediately viral with more than a quarter million views, and it’s easy to see why.
From the weirdness of Trump swaying back and forth, to the earnest adoration of the singer, and the clapping of Ben Carson completely absent of rhythm, it’s just a strange car accident of a video.
Ya gotta love it.
