People are making less money than they were 18 years ago, but Mr Empathy thinks that's good for a few laughs. Also noteworthy that he thinks he's "performing" for the crowds. And the room? Air conditioned and chilly, of course, so more lies.

CANTON, Ohio — Donald Trump on Wednesday expressed doubt about Hillary Clinton’s ability to campaign for an extended period of time in a hot, crowded room, making his remark at a time when the health of both presidential candidates is under intense scrutiny.

Although Trump has voiced skepticism about Clinton's stamina in the past, he has refrained from doing so since she fell ill in public on Sunday. Later in his speech, Trump wished Clinton a speedy recovery.

During a rally at a civic center here Wednesday evening, Trump, after talking about people "making less real wages" compared with 18 years ago and having to work harder, bragged about how hard he has been working on the trail.

“Me? I'm working harder also, so I don't feel sorry for any of you," he quipped.

He continued: "Oh, you think this is so easy? In this beautiful room that's 122 degrees. It is hot, and it's always hot when I perform because the crowds are so big,” Trump said. “These rooms were not designed for this kind of a crowd.”

The packed audience broke into a chant of “Trump! Trump!”
