Current GOP frontrunner Donald Trump promises to surround himself with the best people if elected president, the smartest and the most competent people in America. On Trump-friendly MSNBC’s Morning Joe, the bloviating billionaire and reality TV actor was asked by co-host Mika Brzezinski who he consults on foreign policy matters.
Trump, who many have argued has severe narcissistic characteristics, told Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough that his “number one” foreign policy adviser is actually…himself.
Trump cites his “very good brain” and that he’s “said a lot of things” for his choice to advise himself on foreign matters.
MIKA BRZEZINSKI: “Who are you talking to consistently since we have some dire foreign policy issues percolating around the world right now? Who are you consulting with consistently that you’re ready on day one?”
DONALD TRUMP: “I’m speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain and I’ve said a lot of things.”
After talking about his 2000 book in which he mentioned Osama bin Laden prior to the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001, Trump told Scarborough and Brzezinski that he knows what he’s doing so all is well because his primary consultant is himself.
“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,” Trump said. “But I speak to a lot of people…but my primary consultant is myself and I have — you know — I have a good instinct for this stuff,” he claimed in the telephone interview.
After apparently consulting with himself, Trump told the co-hosts that he is against ISIS, and repeats that he was against the Iraq War.
If Joe Biden, or another goofball politician would have made such a pronouncement, they would get laughed directly out of the race, however, among Trump supporters, Trump’s stock will probably rise.
