Tucked in the middle of a story in today's New York Times on Donald Trump that talks about his fondness for waking up in his own bed at Trump Tower in New York, is this revelation: He apparently misses the "instant gratification and adulation" that he received on the campaign trail from his adoring followers.
Because what better way to recharge your batteries after a stressful week in Washington than holding a good old-fashioned Nazi party rally attended by thousands of fanatical party members?
His aides say he has also expressed interest in continuing to hold the large rallies that were a staple of his candidacy. He likes the instant gratification and adulation that the cheering crowds provide, and his aides are discussing how they might accommodate his demand.

“I think Trump has discovered that these rallies are tremendous opportunities for him to get his message out,” said Christopher Ruddy, chief executive of Newsmax Media, a conservative website. “It’s actually sort of old-fashioned, that you want to actually meet people and press the flesh with him.”
