Which is when the then-gubernatorial candidate sought out help from the almighty Trump with “tears in his eyes,” because there are always tears in eyes when Trump is around.

“Personally, I’m just so glad ‘tears in his eyes’ is back,” Meyers said. “I hope he keeps adding to the story: ‘I was in the Oval Office one day and a guy came up to me, little guy, tiny guy, tears in his eyes, running.
