In an interview aboard his billion-dollar gold-plated jet/mansion, Comedy Central Roast-honoree and likely-candidate for the 2012 GOP nomination Donald Trump dropped some serious knowledge on ABC news' Ashleigh Banfield.
Among the best knowledge bits: Crying is kind of, um, you know [inscrutable hand motion]…
The real estate mogul also expressed personal affection toward Boehner, but said he was offput by the Speaker's occasional crying.
"I don't like the crying. I do not like it. I don't understand it. I really like him as a person," Trump said. "I think the crying is an emotional thing that, frankly, probably makes him a very nice man. But, you know, I don't like to see it in a leader."
Just because you pander to idiots and think like an idiot, it doesn't necessarily make you an idiot…
And Trump even made a pitch to "birthers," the faction within the GOP who incorrectly assert that Obama was born outside the United States, and is therefore constitutionally ineligible to be president.
"Everybody who gives even a hint of being a birther … even a little bit of a hint … they label them as an idiot," Trump said. "Let me tell you, I'm a really smart guy. The reason I have a little doubt — just a little — is because he grew up, and nobody knew him."
Being rich is better than being poor…
He said he's "absolutely" willing to commit as much as $600 million of his own money to the race, if he's doing well.
"Part of the beauty of me is that I'm very rich," Trump explained.
I here I always thought he was kind of a jerk. Boy was I wrong!
