After making a grand entrance, tossing out “TRUMP WAS RIGHT” hats to a room full of supporters, with a video montage playing on the big screen and Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA” blasting out from the stage, Donald Trump tried to keep the crowd animated by claiming that no one in American history has been as persecuted as he has, only to be met with deepening silence.

“A friend of mine once said that I was the most persecuted person in the history of our country,” Trump told the crowd. “I never thought of it that way. I never had time. I was always fighting these people that were trying to persecute me.”

Not getting any reaction from the crowd, he doubled down:

“I didn’t have time to think about getting persecuted because I was fighting persecution,” continuing to add, “Certainly, there’s been no politician or president treated like I’ve been treated.”

To his dismay, the crowd appeared unimpressed, or didn’t buy his story, and remained silent.
