Back on March 7, the hosts of Morning Joe tried to get him to talk about foreign policy. He blew them off.
Asked again yesterday, he came up with this answer:
"I'm speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain and I've said a lot of things. I know what I'm doing, and I listen to a lot of people, I talk to a lot of people, and at the appropriate time I'll tell you who the people are. But my primary consultant is myself and I have, you know, a good instinct for this stuff." -Donald Trump on Morning Joe, March 16, 2016
That's right...the man actually said he has a "very good brain"and that his "primary consultant" is himself.
UPDATE: In today's New York Times, columnist David Brooks writes: "Donald Trump is epically unprepared to be president. He has no realistic policies, no advisers, no capacity to learn. His vast narcissism makes him a closed fortress. He doesn’t know what he doesn’t know and he’s uninterested in finding out. He insults the office Abraham Lincoln once occupied by running for it with less preparation than most of us would undertake to buy a sofa."
Trump's answer on who he consults on foreign relations was just as nonsensical as the one he gave last year when he was asked who he goes to for military advice.
CHUCK TODD to Donald Trump, in an interview taped in Des Moines yesterday for “Meet the Press”: “Who do you talk to for military advice right now?”And then there was the time when Trump talked about his strategy for dealing with Somali pirates....
TRUMP: “Well, I watch the shows. I mean, I really see a lot of great-- you know, when you watch your show and all of the other shows and you have the generals and ... you have certain people that you like ... ”
Sure, you're laughing. But this is a guy who went to the best schools and who knows the "best words." Okay?
Is it any wonder that conservative Republicans are trying to come up with a plan to keep this moron from becoming the party's nominee?
