Agreed. The entire interview was more interesting. Here it is:

No, we don't. But not to have known about it around the time it happened would have been nigh on impossible unless one had no TV, newspaper, or internet. It was played/reported on everywhere as it was such an outrageous thing to say.

I didn't know about it and every thread tends to turn into Trump on here.

Especially when I think he will get back in again.
I plead guilty; I detest him unlike any other politician in my 6 decades. It's not an unknown 'something' which creates the intense feelings against him. It was during the primaries when I watched him reveal what a pig he is that I grew to dislike him intensely. His behavior repulsed me but that same behavior, sadly, attracted others.

Until he came down that escalator in 2015, I knew very little about him other than he was a rich NY real estate developer and had been married a few times. I didn't even know who Melania was.

That's because you live in New Zealand. If you'd been here, you would have known about it. It happened just under 4 years ago. Here it is for you:

True

And to be fair I have the luxury of pretty much the most detachment you can have to the dude and just observation.

Thinking about it, if we had a PM like him I would probably be the same.

What would persuade you to vote for Donald Trump?

I considered it several years back when he first mentioned it. This was before I knew much about him other than he was a successful businessman (I didn't know about the bankruptcies). Like many, I wondered if we needed a businessman who wasn't a politician.

What would persuade me to vote for him now? Nothing. I know too much about him and have seen what his presidency is like. He'd have to transform into a completely different person, morally and politically, for me to vote for him. We know that isn't going to happen.

"Almost irrational"? No. It's a completely rational response.

Agreed. My intense dislike for him is based on his actions and behaviors which I find repulsive.

Trump is a person and not a Dalek or a Borg.

You might want to remember this.

And while at it, maybe try to keep to the rule you don't bring his kids into it, who have nothing to do with it....Apart from the hot blond older one

Would you vote for him?
geez - of course not.
A man riddled with bullets is hardly fit to run the country from a purely medical point of view.

I do remember this. You might want to remember that some people are such scum they deserve the hatred they receive.

A man who just shot someone for no reason would obviously go to prison and not be running for Prez

Unless the the Dems were so **** they let him get off killing someone in cold blood, yet still run for prez.

Why would they do this?

I know, it wasn't me, so don't go preaching at me like it was me. Could you at least try to stay on topic?

According to the Trump WH, investigators wouldn't be allowed to investigate whether the Prez killed in cold blood and defiled the corpse or heroically saved the entire US from a Terrorist in pure self-defense.
They would have to take his word for it.

Then expect blood in the streets. America will not survive another term of Traitor Trump's regime in any recognizable form.

It is not irrational in any way to hate this evil tyrant or his enablers.

And to hear him tell it, he's not only just a person, but a 'very stable genius' person who knows more about how to fight a war than the generals, has one of the greatest memories in history, and has accomplished more than any other president in the history of the US. He's not just a person; he's SuperPerson!
