After Donald Trump's rambling 30-minute victory speech/infomercial in Pensacola, Florida on Tuesday night, the threat of sending a performance artist into the Oval Office continues to loom.

"I don't think I've ever heard such a stream of disconnected ideas since I quit psychiatry 30 years ago," Charles Krauthammer told Fox News host Brett Baier. "I think people have a sense of humor about him, which is good because otherwise they'd be terrified."

Trump gave Krauthammer a positive shoutout during the presser, to which the latter responded, "Having lost all that money at the casino betting against Trump, it's the least he could have done for me."

"That was a performance. That was live television. That was reality television, that nobody can do," he continued. "And that has its appeal."

"I think people actually separate the performance part ... from what he says he's gonna do as president. And he's pulled it off," he added. "Now, in the end, I think that's gonna be really dangerous, 'cause he often can go off the reservation. That's a little bit weird. But he's been able to carry it off."
