Donald Trump, The "I Know You Are, But What Am I?" Candidate

Donald Trump employs the "I know you are, but what am I" strategy at the 3rd POTUS debate held at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas on 10/19/2016. (0:41).

Another "I know you are, but what am I" from the bigot Trump (0:20). A 8/24/2016 WP says "Donald Trump called Hillary Clinton a bigot while addressing the crowd at the Mississippi Coliseum in Jackson MI".

I could probably find many other examples, but to keep it short, I'll get to my point, which is that Donald Trump, with his "I know you are, but what am I" strategy, reminds me (and Stephanie Miller, which is where this idea actually comes from) of the following scene from the 1985 film, Pee-Wee's Big Adventure. In the movie, Pee-Wee Herman employs the "I know you are but what am I" strategy in an argument with Francis Buxton, his neighbor (who, unbeknownst to Pee-Wee, as paid someone to steal his bicycle). (0:07).
