So Donald Trump may be planning a run for the presidency . . . Why, we began thinking, would he make a good president? (Aside from the highly telegenic hair, that is.)
Here, in his own words, is proof positive that Trump is clearly presidential material:
- He‛s great with numbers!
“I’ll tell you, it’s Big Business. If there is one word to describe Atlantic City, it’s Big Business. Or two words – Big Business.”
- He‛s diplomatic!
“She really has become a monster….I mean monster in the most positive way.” (speaking about his then-pregnant wife Melania on the Howard Stern Show)
- He‛s able to grasp of highly complicated subjects!
“It’s a lot better to side with a winner than a loser.”
- He‛s got his priorities straight!
“You know, it really doesn’t matter what [the media] write as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass.”
- He ‛s intellectual!
“Deals work best when each side gets something it wants from the other.”
- He thinks deeply about the important things in life!
“The worst thing a man can do is go bald. Never let yourself go bald.”
- He‛s very eloquent!
“You know, the one thing I sorta liked was what they were saying about Iran. I believe you have to go in and strike Iran — not with soldiers. You know, it’s not a world of soldiers anymore. It’s a world of air. It’s a world of different kinds of, you know, we’ve changed.”
(on a speech by President George W. Bush)
- He‛s painfully honest!
“Bankruptcy? I don’t think it’s a failure. It’s a success.”
(when Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts filed for bankruptcy protection after accruing $1.8 billion in debt)
- He‛s selfless and cares about others!
“I’m not a schmuck. Even if the world goes to hell in a handbasket, I won’t lose a penny.”
- And, like we said before, he‛s diplomatic!
“Do you mind if I sit back a little? Because your breath is very bad.”
