‘Low Energy Donald’ trends as Trump's RNC address makes people yawn, Internet calls it ‘most boring speech’
During Trump's long speech, videos surfaced showing people yawning and soon internet said Trump was low on energy and #LowEnergyDonald started to trend
Was Donald Trump’s GOP address a lullaby or an effective speech? As POTUS accepted the Republican nomination for the 2020 presidential race against Joe Biden on August 27, the internet started asking if he just delivered the "most boring acceptance speech in history" and started to trend #LowEnergyDonald.
During his mega speech on 'D Day', Trump spoke on multiple issues including the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, vaccine, Hurricane Laura and unrest in Kenosha after the shooting of Jacob Blake. He started with Hurricane Laura. "We begin this evening, our thoughts are with the wonderful people who have just come through the wrath of Hurricane Laura. We are working closely with state and local officials in Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, sparing no effort to save lives."
Invoking the idea of “national family” he said that there are some people who have made his journey joyful. He thanked his wife Melania and later daughter Ivanka for this and extended the graciousness to children and grandchildren. “We are one national family. And we will always protect, love and care for each other. Here tonight are the people who have made my journey possible and filled my life with so much joy. For her incredible service to our nation and its children, I want to thank our magnificent First Lady."
Coming to the issue of economy he said, "In a new term as president, we will again build the greatest economy in history, quickly returning to full employment, soaring incomes and record prosperity." He also swore to protect America from threats: "We will defend America against all threats and protect America against all dangers. We will lead America into new frontiers of ambition and discovery and we will reach for new heights of national achievement."
He also promised that a Covid-19 vaccine will be out soon. "We are delivering life-saving therapies and will produce a vaccine before the end of the year, or maybe even sooner."
Many of the excerpts of his speech alluded to the greatness of America. "This towering American spirit has prevailed over every challenge, and lifted us to the summit of human endeavor." He further went on to recall his moves on Paris Climate Accord, approving the Keystone XL and Dakota Access Pipelines and brought up several trade, borders, foreign policy and national defense issues.
By this time, it seemed like the crowd had already lost its patience to further listen to POTUS. Soon videos of people yawning and calling Trump a “low Energy” man started to trend under hashtag #LowEnergyDonald. A handle tweeted, "This sums it up #LowEnergyDonald."
A user joked, “'I’ve been dead for 90 years & I have higher energy than @realDonaldTrump tonight. Sad! #lowenergydonald.”
Some felt he was lulling America. “#LowEnergyDonald is lullin’ America to sleep with his medicated, monotone, mono-syllabic monologue.”

Others felt while POTUS had low energy, Melania was invigorated throughout. “#lowenergydonald but his wife is not.”
Another concurred, “Well, he can read from a teleprompter, but gotta say, this speech doesn't snap. #lowenergydonald.”
