“A star is born!” exclaimed President Donald Trump as he spontaneously brought his number 1 supporter, Gene Huber, on stage at his Melbourne, Florida rally.
To his delight, Huber took the stage and even got a bear hug from Trump before taking over the rally microphone for a short speech.

“A star is Born” Trump announces at the dismay (no doubts) Secret Service while he invites a fan to the podium. He sure is a showman #rally”
It all started with the president looking out into the crowd at his rally and saying, “Look at this guy. Look at this guy. This guy is great. …Come on up. Come here.” The supporter ran on stage and Trump hugged him. “This guy,” the president said. “So, he’s been all over television saying the best things, and I see him standing. Didn’t you get here at 4 in the morning? Say a couple of words to this crowd.” The supporter, who was wearing a President Donald Trump T-shirt, took the microphone and said, “Mr. President, thank you, sir. We the people, our movement is the reason why our president of the United States is standing here in front of us today. When President Trump during the election promised all these things that he was going to do for us, I knew he was going to do this for us.” h/t heavy
Trump shook his hand.
“Mr. President, thank you so much sir,” Huber said. “A star is born,” said Trump, who has arguably the biggest bully pulpit in the world. “A star is born.”
Huber spoke to the media before the rally and had explained that he was first in line. “I was in line at 4 a.m. this morning, all by my lonesome,” he revealed.
