Fresh off of calling fellow GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz, a “pussy” on Monday night at a campaign rally, Donald Trump told NBC Nightly News’ Lester Holt that he won’t act like a petulant child or a  smear merchant if elected to the presidency, as he has done during the campaign.

“I’m wondering to myself, would you say that as President of the United States, with that seal on the podium?” Holt asked the bombastic billionaire and reality TV actor about the calling Cruz a “pussy,” a vulgar term often used in place of “coward.”

“Much different, much different,” Trump replied, shaking his head, indicating that he would change if elected.

“Are you going to be a different guy as president than the one we see out here [on the campaign trail]?” Holt then asked.

Trump explained that he’s attended some of the best schools, was a good student and has an uncle who was one of the “top, top professors at M.I.T.”

“I mean, there’s a good gene pool right there,” Trump argued, pointing to his head.

Editors Note: I have no idea what Trump’s gene pool or education has to do with the question. Decide for yourself.

Holt made the statement that just because Trump’s antics went over well with his crowd in New Hampshire doesn’t make calling a fellow GOP candidate a “pussy” in good taste.

Trump replied that any president or anyone about to be president wouldn’t behave the way he did last night, and then indicated that anyone “about to be president…would act differently” than he has been.

“I’ll tell you what. When you’re president — or if you’re about to be president — you would act differently.”

Many have wondered if the emotionally unstable Trump candidacy was a serious one or if it was all an act, similar to acting on a reality TV series, considering his long affection for liberal policies like government-run health care and ethanol subsidies to benefit billionaires like himself.

And then there’s the complicated issue of his long and recent friendship with the Clintons.
