Donald Trump Talks of Famous Men

Not every 2016 Presidential candidate would be comfortable speaking of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un in quite this way:

“You’ve got to give him credit," Mr Trump said. "How many young guys — he was like 26 or 25 when his father died — take over these tough generals, and all of a sudden — you know, it’s pretty amazing when you think of it. How does he do that?

"Even though it is a culture, and it’s a cultural thing, he goes in, he takes over, he’s the boss. It’s incredible.

"He wiped out the uncle, he wiped out this one, that one. This guy doesn’t play games and we can’t play games with him. Because he really does have missiles and he really does have nukes."
Not sure many people at all would phrase that so admiringly. But sure. There's no reason to believe Trump thinks bumping off rivals is good, any more than he thinks bumping off journalists is. Although he clearly has issues with journalists and his rivals.

So  let's just sit back and enjoy the spectacle of his crowds cheering the removal of a peaceful Muslim woman protester and some folks whose coats were in some danger. Good clean, not-at-all disturbing fun.
