В смысле, не я (хотя и я тоже), а Donald J. Trump. Это я посмотрел отрывки из ответов Трампа на разные вопросы на сегодняшней пресс-конференции.

Что можно сказать о пресс-конференции... Не в том даже дело, что Трамп говорит что-то, с чем я не согласен. Дело в том, что многое (пожалуй, бОльшая часть) того, что он говорит, не имеет никакого смысла вообще. Это не просто глупое "airing of grievances", но местами совершенно бессмысленный набор слов.

Мне больше всего понравился ответ Трампа еврейскому репортеру. На реакцию репортера тоже забавно смотреть.



Даже текст приведу (спасибо [livejournal.com profile] tijd):
TRUMP: Wait. Let's see. Who's -- I want to find a friendly reporter. Are you a friendly reporter? Watch how friendly he is. Wait. Wait. Watch how friendly he is. Go ahead.

QUESTION: So, first of all, my name is Jake Turx. I haven't seen anybody in my community accuse either yourself or anyone on your staff of being anti-Semitic. We have an understand that you have Jewish grandchildren — you are their zayde. However, what we are concerned about and what we haven't being heard addressed is how the government is planning to take care of it. There are reports that 48 bomb threats have been made against Jewish centers across the country in the last couple of weeks. There are people committing anti-Semitic acts or threatening to—

TRUMP: He said he was going to ask a easy question — okay sit down, I understand the rest of your question. Folks, number one, I am the least anti-Semitic person that you have seen in your entire life. Number two, racism. The least racist. We did relatively well — quiet, quiet, quiet — see he lied about what was going to be a very straight simple question. I hate the charge. I find it repulsive, I hate even the question because people that know me and you heard the Prime Minister, you heard Betanyahu yesterday. Did you hear him, Bibi, he said I've known Donald Trump for a long time and said forget it so you should take that instead of getting up and asking a very insulting question like that. Just shows you about the press but that's the way the press is.
И про "airing of grievances", также известный как Festivus.
Если кто не знаком с этой традицией, то вот посмотрите. Я поставил начало ролика ближе к концу, но лучше посмотреть его целиком.
