Donald Trump may have just had his own “please clap” moment.
A new clip posted on Twitter by PatriotTakes, which monitors right-wing media, shows Trump at his Mar-a-Lago resort standing at his table, apparently gesturing to those dining nearby to applaud for him.
They did — and he responded with a thumbs-up:

It’s not clear when the footage was captured, but it’s drawing comparisons to a Jeb Bush moment from the 2016 campaign trail, when he uttered what he thought would be an applause line, only to be greeted in silence.
“Please clap,” he said.
Twitter users, of course, provided Trump with further attention:
The world’s most deranged malignant narcissist requires applause & worship from people eating waffles in his gold leafed pimp palace. What a sick man. https://t.co/yfi5YUKVDg

Even Jeb Bush wouldn't clap for this. https://t.co/oTjYM0xOoJ

Jimmy Carter builds houses for the poor. Clinton has a foundation. Bush has a think tank and paints portraits of veterans. Obama has a foundation.
