Here’s a lovely update from The Tampa Bay Times in its writeup about the Donald Trump rally in Sarasota, Florida on Saturday:

UPDATE: Trump just landed outside the arena, where he asked someone to find him six or seven beautiful children to hop onto his helicopter. He says 6,000 people have showed up.

Were this another candidate, he said, it would be “50, 75 people. They’re going to fall asleep, go home.”

Anyone who’d like to join the throng of thousands vying to play the part of “beautiful child” in the Trump 2016 campaign, please report to Sarasota immediately.
