When Donald Trump pointed to an African-American at a rally in California earlier today, he uttered a rather curious line that earned him quite a bit of Twitter mockery:

“Look at my African-American over here! Look at him! Are you the greatest?”
Clearly Trump was just giving someone a shoutout, but to quote the great philosopher Sterling Archer, um… phrasing:
@alivitali He has lost his mind… or maybe he really doesn't want to be President. Think about it.

@alivitali I've been saying that Drumpf is devolving into some paranoia and is probably clinically insane. He is losing it.

@JohnJHarwood what an asshat Trump is. Did he invite him home to polish the silver?

@JohnJHarwood Think he may have taken the wrong message away from the new "Roots" series?

Even a member of Team Clinton got in on it:
Trump: "look at my African American over here … Look at him!"
People, we cannot let this man become president!
