Despite his abusive rhetoric, history of casual comments about sexual assault and lack of political experience, Donald Trump became president-elect of the United States of America early Wednesday morning.
The news is even more astonishing, considering he couldn’t quite figure out how to cast a vote just 12 years ago.
In an newly resurfaced video, Trump and his “grab them by the p***y” buddy, Billy Bush, ride around New York City trying to cast a vote in the 2004 election.
“Access Hollywood” aptly called the clip “Donald Trump’s Election Day Disaster” when the show aired it in 2012, which is fitting, considering the current president-elect visited three polling places before finally casting a vote via provisional ballot.
Throughout the video, Trump consistently berates poll workers with threatening language now all too familiar to the American public. Despite that fact that it’s Trump’s fault that he — nor is team — can’t figure out where he’s registered to vote, a vengeful Trump becomes increasingly angry with volunteers, cursing at them and instructing them to “make sure there’s no cheating here.”
He even calls one worker a “scumbag” after hitting the man on the arm. Perhaps Trump’s disorganization and jabs were played up for laughs, but we’re not laughing now.
Watch the video above to see Trump unravel.
