I think Trump knocked it out of the park during the debate tonight. First, he refused to pledge blind support to the Republican candidate if he doesn’t win it. He said that he wouldn’t vote for someone he didn’t respect. I think that showed both independence and integrity.
I have the Megyn Kelly show on in the background and most of the focus group disagrees with me on that issue. I also like the way he answered this ambush question:
Megyn Kelly tries to call out Donald Trump for sexist remarks from his Twitter history. “You’ve called women you don’t like ‘fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals.'”
“Only Rosie O’Donnell,” laughs Trump, before turning serious. “I’ve been challenged by so many people and I don’t frankly have time for total political correctness. And to be honest with you, this country doesn’t have time either. This country is in big trouble.”
MEGYN KELLY, FOX NEWS CHANNEL: Mr. Trump, one of the things people love about you is you speak your mind and you don’t use a politician’s filter. However that is not without its downsides, in particular when it comes to women. You’ve called women you don’t like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals. Your twitter account–
DONALD TRUMP: Only Rosie O’Donnell.
KELLY: For the record, it was well beyond Rosie O’Donnell.
TRUMP: I’m sure it was.
KELLY: Your Twitter account has several disparaging comments about women’s looks. You once told a contestant that it would be a pretty picture to see her on her knees.
Does that sound like the temperament of a man we should elect as president?
And how do you answer the charge from Hillary Clinton, who is likely to be the Democratic nominee, that you are part of the war on women?
TRUMP: The big problem this country has is being politically correct. I’ve been challenged by so many people and I don’t frankly have time for total political correctness. And to be honest with you, this country doesn’t have time either. This country is in big trouble. We don’t win anymore. We lose to China, we lose to Mexico both in trade and at the border. We lose to everybody. Frankly what I say and oftentimes it’s fun, it’s kidding, we have a good time. What I say is what I say. And honestly, Megyn if you don’t like it, I’m sorry. I’ve been very nice to you although I could probably not be based on the way you have treated me, but I wouldn’t do that. But you know what? We, we need strength, we need energy, we need quickness and we need brain in this country to turn it around. That I can tell you right now.
Crap like Megyn Kelly asked may be important to the talking head class in the country, but really, does any of that kind of shit help one unemployed person get a job? Does it help some poor Black guy in the hood get off the 29 hour work week?
The pro-establishment people at FOXNews are trying to portray Trump as a buffoon. They have to. Because if Trump is right, then all the professional politicians are exactly what he calls them — stupid and incompetent.
