Listen to a handful of Donald Trump speeches, and you’ll start to notice a curious pattern. He often says something like this:

“No one knows [INSERT SUBJECT HERE] better than me.”

It’s like a nervous tic. It’s something he can’t help but say. In my opinion, it’s something he can’t help but say when he doesn’t know what else to say.

The good people at NowThis News noticed the same tic. They went through many of his speeches and television appearances and found Donald Trump referencing himself as an expert on the following things:

  • Taxes
  • Income
  • Construction
  • Campaign finance
  • Drones
  • Technology
  • Infrastructure
  • H-1B
  • H-2B
  • ISIS
  • Environmental impact
  • Facebook
  • Renewables
  • Polls
  • Courts
  • Steel workers
  • Golf
  • Banks
  • Trade
  • Nuclear weapons
  • Tax laws
  • Lawsuits
  • Offense
  • Defense
  • Devaluation
  • Money
  • The “system”
  • The “game”
  • Debt
  • Contributions
  • The word “apprentice”
  • Politicians
  • The “other side”
  • Being the “fair-haired boy”

They even spliced these moments together in a video. Check it out:

I’m not so bothered by these outrageous claims. I’m bothered that there are people out there who nod along with him and buy into it.
