At a rally Monday morning in Sarasota, Florida, Donald Trump finally came face-to-face with himself.

The Republican nominee paused in the middle of a riff on 98-year-old evangelical Christian leader Rev. Billy Graham—“I don’t think Billy Graham ever spoke this, do we agree?”—when he spotted his own likeness in the crowd.

“Look at this mask! Look at this mask. Oh, wow. Wow, that’s beautiful,” Trump crooned, walking to the edge of the stage to retrieve the treasure.

The mask had holes in the spray-tanned rubber where its pupils would have been.

“Look at that,” he said. “Looks just like me.”

The brief, absurd moment seemed to perfectly encapsulate his campaign: Trump gazed endlessly at himself, his audience cheered gaily.

“Nice set of hair, I will say that,” Trump observed, before tossing the mug off-stage.
