We’d suggest this barking clown was left red-faced after going nuts over Pope Francis Thursday, but all his time in the tanning booth has left him a freakish dark orange. Whatever the case, he toned down his behavior some while appearing on CNN last night.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said on Thursday that he respects Pope Francis after bashing the pontiff earlier in the day for criticizing his plan to build a border wall.
“He has a lot of personality,” Trump said during the CNN town hall on Thursday night in South Carolina. “He’s very different, he’s a very different kind of a guy, and I think he’s doing a very good job. A lot of energy.”
Earlier on Thursday, Trump said the pope publicly questioned his faith with a statement that said building walls “is not Christian.” Trump called a religious leader questioning a person’s faith “disgraceful.”
But he told CNN’s Anderson Cooper that after seeing the pope’s actual statements, it seems nicer than what was originally portrayed.
“I think he said something much softer than was originally reported by the media,” he said.
Trump added that the pope only knew one side of the story.
“Somehow the government of Mexico spoke with the pope. I mean, they spent a lot of time with the pope, and by the time they left, they made the statement,” he said.
Asked what he thought the Mexican government’s role was, Trump
Gee, maybe you and your army of nitwits ought to get the facts straight before flapping your gums. Meanwhile, the clown also offered up this hilarious bit:
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said on Thursday that he doesn’t like publicity.
“I get a lot of publicity,” he said during a CNN town hall in South Carolina. “I don’t necessarily like it.”
“It’s true,” he said. “I don’t love that.”
Trump said he can’t stand all of the media attention he gets. He went on to bash the media, calling it “extremely dishonest.”
So this media whore hates publicity and the media. Got it.
