Trump actually cracked a funny joke and showed a rare tinge of modesty at press conference yesterday

Trump said everyone has skeletons in their closet — except the vice president.

“There are bad reports on everybody in here, most of the people sitting down here — except for Mike Pence, by the way,” he said, to laughter. “And if we find one on him, then I’m … that’s going to be it, that’ll be the greatest shock of all time.”

Trump pointed out he doesn’t drink — and acknowledged that if he did, he would be the “world’s worst”
There have been questions about whether Kavanaugh lied about his drinking while in high school and college. He has said he didn’t drink heavily while he was young, but others who knew him have refuted that claim.

A reporter asked Trump whether he would pull Kavanaugh’s nomination if he lied about his drinking. Trump responded by talking about the fact that he doesn’t drink.

“I don’t think [Kavanaugh lied],” Trump said. “I’m not a drinker. I can honestly say I’ve never had a beer in my life. It’s one of my only good traits. I don’t drink.”

In a brief moment of self-awareness, he acknowledged that alcohol would likely make his already volatile nature worse: “Can you imagine if I had? What a mess I would be? I would be the world’s worst,” he said.

Still has that “Great Wall’ in the back of his mind.

But isn’t he already belligerent and mean-spirited?

One thought on “Trump actually cracked a funny joke and showed a rare tinge of modesty at press conference yesterday

  1. One thing we all should have learned from the last presidential election in the US, and in my opinion and observations, it seems I am not alone in this point of view, is that we should not trust the mainstream media, and trust very little of other sources as well, and we certainly cannot trust corporate sources in conjunction with government outlets, as they seem to be in bed with each other, so who do we trust? How do we form our opinions? Ans: …from a variety of sources…. So rather than condemn Trump, I wan’t to know how effective and efficient is he? How smart is he really? Is he just another lucky rich guy? How much of his blunderous and gaff prone nature is signifigant? Does it matter at all if he gets results? What is true and what is false?
