“Mama told me not to look into the eyes of the sun, but Mama that’s where the fun is.” ~ Manfred Mann
Donald J. Trump is a “legend in his own mind”. Here are a few quotes to demonstrate that.
Thanks to the Washington Post for compiling all of these quotes.
"I understand the tax laws better than almost anyone, which is why I'm the one who can truly fix them,"
"I know more about renewables than any human being on Earth."
"Nobody knows more about debt. I'm like the king. I love debt."
"I think nobody knows more about taxes than I do, maybe in the history of the world. Nobody knows more about taxes."
“I know our complex tax laws better than anyone who has ever run for president and am the only one who can fix them.” #failing@nytimes
To reiterate ~ "Nobody knows more about taxes than I do -- and income than I do.”
"Nobody knows banking better than I do" — February 2016
"I understand money better than anybody. I understand it far better than Hillary, and I'm way up on the economy when it comes to questions on the economy."
“If Cory Booker is the future of the Democratic Party, they have no future! I know more about Cory than he knows about himself.”
You get the picture. Trump is the expert on everything. Apparently, he believes some of his hyperbole.
Despite numerous cautions against looking directly at the sun during yesterday’s eclipse - he did - twice.
Perhaps it is just part of his risk-taking personality. Perhaps it was done to prove that, while others might go blind, he wouldn't. Or, maybe he's just stupid. (Nah, couldn't be that.)
Probably, he thought he knew more about the sun than NASA knows about the sun.
I was waiting for reports that he had damaged his retina by staring directly at the sun so I could play this.
I’m going to play it anyway. Maybe Trump can tell us what a “douchen of the roller in the night” means.
I hope everyone got to go out to – safely - see the eclipse. It was total here. Roosters crowed, dogs began barking, the neighbors cheered, someone shot off fireworks during the height of the eclipse. We had “heavier than usual” traffic as viewers headed back to Atlanta.
