Burn, baby, burn …
Chris Wallace, winning:
WALLACE: What are the odds? One in a hundred? What–What?
TRUMP: I don’t do odds, I gave very detailed–
WALLACE: You ran a casino sir.

… disco inferno.
And, of course, Trump’s riposte should have been, “Yeah, into the ground.”
But as we all know, he’s not that clever.
Of course, that wasn’t even the craziest part of the interview. Not by a long shot.
(What’s the over/under for mouth-frothingly insane Trump statements during one Fox interview? I’d peg it at 10.)
WALLACE: Bill McRaven, Retired Admiral, Navy Seal, 37 years, former head of U.S. Special Operations —
TRUMP: Hillary Clinton fan.
WALLACE: Special Operations —
TRUMP: Excuse me, Hillary Clinton fan.
WALLACE: Who led the operations, commanded the operations that took down Saddam Hussein and that killed Osama bin Laden says that your sentiment is the greatest threat to democracy in his lifetime.
TRUMP: OK, he’s a Hilary Clinton, uh, backer and an Obama-backer and frankly —
WALLACE: He was a Navy Seal 37 years —
TRUMP: Wouldn’t it have been nice if we got Osama Bin Laden a lot sooner than that, wouldn’t it have been nice? You know, living — think of this — living in Pakistan, beautifully in Pakistan in what I guess they considered a nice mansion, I don’t know, I’ve seen nicer. But living in Pakistan right next to the military academy, everybody in Pakistan knew he was there. And we give Pakistan $1.3 billion a year and they don’t tell him, they don’t tell him —
WALLACE: You’re not even going to give them credit —
TRUMP: For years —
WALLACE: for taking down Bin Laden?
TRUMP: They took him down but — look, look, there’s news right there, he lived in Pakistan, we’re supporting Pakistan, we’re giving them $1.3 billion a year, which we don’t give them anymore, by the way, I ended it because they don’t do anything for us, they don’t do a damn thing for us.
Really? So if you’re a Hillary Clinton voter you have no credibility on anything and are automatically just an idiot? Granted, that’s the way I feel about Trump voters, but I have evidence to back me up. I happen to believe if you’re not a member of the Trump family and you voted for Trump, you’re a moron. If you are a member of the Trump family, you’re a moron right out of the box. You don’t have to do any extra credit work to prove it.
It’s only Sunday, and already the crazy train has left the station. All aboard.
