Donald Trump rallied the faithful with a rousing acceptance speech at Thursday night’s Republican National Convention. But we could have watched the speech with the sound off and been mesmerized by Mr. Mar-A-Lago‘s endless collection of facial expressions, tics and body language.
Our favorites (all photos from the Associated Press and Getty Images):
THE FRENCH KISS (a k a The Air Kiss): No Al and Tipper Gore liplock plagiarism between The Donald and Melania after the speech last night. Campaign Rule No. 1: Don’t muss the makeup.
THE PULL-DOWN: Throughout the speech, Trump would give his suit a quick downward adjustment and stand in a pre-emptive “Hail to The Chief” posture.
THE POINTER: Trump’s fascination with his fingers has been well-documented. Need we say more?
THE THUMBS-UP: See The Pointer above.
THE GREAT PROFILE (with The Thumbs Up): A two-fer. Throughout the speech he would turn in profile and admire the crowd as it admired him.
THE THIS-IS-YUGE!: Or the “Can You Believe It? I’m Gonna Be The President!”
