Thrice-indicted former President Donald Trump was the keynote speaker at the Columbia, South Carolina Silver Elephant Gala on Saturday, which The State noted on Monday is "a Republican-led black tie optional fundraising event that featured a crowd of more than 1,300."

Trump said in his hour-long speech that "under my leadership, we built the greatest economy in the history of the world" and pledged that "when I get back in office, I'm going to reverse Bidenomics and restore the trajectory I created toward increasing this country's financial prosperity."

As part of his pitch, Trump shared anecdotes about inadequate plumbing and recalled that his administration had water efficiency standards repealed.

"So, you know, little things like your sink. You know, you buy a sink and no water comes out because they have regulators on the water. Even if you're in a state where water comes out of heaven all day long, doesn't make any difference," Trump complained. "When you take a shower, I like to have, you know, I have this gorgeous head of hair. I like — when I take a shower — I want water to pour down on me. When you go into these new homes with showers, the water drips down slowly. Slowly you'd have suds, beautiful, nice, wonderful suds."

Trump then pivoted, "Lot of money, Procter & Gamble. All that crap that they sell they say is good. Probably cost them, cost them about two cents and they sell it for $10."

He continued, "But you can't, it, it takes you ten minutes to wash your hair. You know what you do? You just stay in the shower about ten times longer than you would've. It's the same. You probably used more water. I broke all that up. I opened up your sinks."
