Donald Trump isn’t beyond begging, and he did exactly that on Tuesday at a campaign rally in Iowa.

After falling to second place in the polls behind Dr. Ben Carson in the crucial first voting state, Trump pleaded with its voters to boost him back to the top.

“Iowa, will you get your numbers up, please?” Trump said before a crowd of close to 2,400. “I promise you I will do such a good job.”

Trump went on to call the fact that Carson has jumped ahead of him in Iowa, and nationally, “ridiculous.”

“This is ridiculous,” he said. “I mean, what is my competition, in all fairness?”

And in typical Donald fashion, he promised not to be vulgar, then in the same breath said something vulgar.

“I refuse to say get your asses in gear,” Trump said. “I refuse to say it … So will you please do me a favor and work with my people and go out on Feb. 1 and vote? And if I win Iowa, we’re going to run the whole table.”
