Trump Praises Hannibal Lecter as a ‘Wonderful Man’

“Silence of the Lambs. Has anyone ever seen The Silence of the Lambs? The late, great Hannibal Lecter is a wonderful man. He oftentimes would have a friend for dinner. Remember the last scene? Excuse me. I’m about to have a friend for dinner, as this poor doctor walked by. ‘I’m about to have a friend for dinner.’ But Hannibal Lecter. Congratulations. The late, great Hannibal Lecter.”

Remark delivered by Donald Trump to a huge MAGA rally in New Jersey

When presidential candidates have the honor and privilege of speaking before an audience of 100,000 people they don’t waste the opportunity, they wax eloquent on crucial issues like climate change, the Russian invasion of Ukraine or the Gaza genocide.

The Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump delivered his usual stump speech to the huge crowd in Willwood, N.J, rambling on about personal grievances, 2020 stolen election lies, and other assorted lunacies.

In his MAGA rallies Trump often showers dictators like Putin with praise, but this time he praised a fictional cannibal serial killer. It could be that Trump’s dementia has deteriorated to the point where he thinks Hannibal Lecter is a real person. The senile sociopath sent love letters to Kim Jong Un; I wonder if he has sent love letters to his cannibal pen pal?

Trump praised the fictional serial killer “as a wonderful man” before segueing into comments disparaging and demonizing undocumented workers. The racist sees little difference between migrants and cannibals.

It’s incredible to witness a former president and current presidential candidate utter such nonsense, but it’s even more incredible that this lunatic will probably win.

I’d rather have dinner with Hannibal Lecter, we me as the main dish, than see Trump return to power.
