Donald Trump is a man with many gifts but dancing is certainly not one of them as it can be seen in a video that has recently gone viral.


The clip is from the Palm Beah County Republican's Lincoln Day fundraiser, which took place in 2016, eight months before becoming the President of the U.S.

 The video has been uploaded to Youtube and depicts a very awkward situation involving Trump, actor Beau Davidson and Trump's housing secretary Ben Carson.

In the footage, a very out-of-place Trump can be seen looking very confused as Davisdon performs a cover of Ben E. King's classic "Stand By Me."

During the song, Davidson changed one of the most memorable lyrics of the song in order to honor Trump; instead of singing 'darlin', darlin', the actor sang 'Donald, Donald.'

 "A Twitter user claimed to have been left with scars that will never heal after watching the video."



While Davidson was performing, Trump and Carson seemed to wonder what they got themselves into, as they wer both standing there with almost blank expressions on their faces.

The then-candidate was simply bopping on stage with minimal rhythm and Carson appeared to be struggling to clap to the beat as if he was hearing a completely different song in his head.



As usual, the internet was relentless and several Twitter users immediately took a advantage of the situation to make fun of Trump, with a lot them saying that they wished they hadn't seen the video.


A user by the name of  Truly S. Resists claimed to have been left with scars that will never heal after watching the video, while another said that he was expecting it to be a joke from 'Saturday Night Live.'

Being mocked and criticized online is nothing new to Trump, but he recently made quite a lot of people mad by thanking himself, during a Thanksgiving speech, for making America a stronger country again, something that, according to him, Obama was unable to do.
