ABBpGzhC[1]nother day, another spate of brilliant and inspiring quotes from the keenest mind in real estate and reality tv:

Why no more debates, Mr. Trump?

“We’ve had 11 or 12 debates—I did really well in the last one, I think I’ve done really well in all the debates,” he said. “But I think we’ve had enough. How many times can the same people ask you the same question?”

What happens if you don’t get the majority of delegates before the convention? Should you get the nomination anyway?

“I think we’ll win before getting to the convention, but if we didn’t and we’re 20 votes short, or we’re, you know, a hundred short, and we’re at 1,100 and somebody else is at 500 or 400, cause we’re way ahead of everybody, I don’t think you can say we don’t get it automatically. I think you’d have riots.” He added that “if you disenfranchise those people . . . I think you would have problems like you’ve never seen before.”

Who are you consulting with on national security matters? Presidents and candidates for the presidency typically build a brain trust of accomplished knowledgeable people in foreign affairs. Who are the ones you’re talking with?

“I’m speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain and I’ve said a lot of things. So I know what I’m doing, and I listen to a lot of people, I talk to people, but my primary consultant is myself, and I have, you know, I have a good instinct for this stuff.”

Right.

do you guys not think that Trump will be employing scores of experts in many different areas? I think he’ll have some of the best from many sectors of the country helping him craft an agenda.
