Trump word salad rivals Palin
Only Sarah Palin can equal this word salad answer from Donald Trump when asked about his infamous comment that women who have abortions should be punished. Ben Mathis-Lilley calls it “one of the most garbled sacks of nonsense verbiage that has been emitted in the history of human civilization.”
WILLIE GEIST: What about what you told Chris Matthews a few weeks ago, which is that women who get abortions should be punished? Do you still believe that to be true?
TRUMP: No, he was asking me a theoretical, or just a question in theory, and I talked about it only from that standpoint. Of course not. And that was done, he said, you know, I guess it was theoretically, but he was asking a rhetorical question, and I gave an answer. And by the way, people thought from an academic standpoint, and, asked rhetorically, people said that answer was an unbelievable academic answer! But of course not, and I said that afterwards.
