Donald Trump threw his support to John McCain yesterday. "The Donald" had previously endorsed Hillary Clinton.
I am certainly not a devotee of FoxNews, however...here's Trump's reason why he is supporting McCain, when questioned by Greta Van Susteren:
VAN SUSTEREN: Are you endorsing him because you've known him for a long time, or is it--tell me the difference between Senator Obama and Senator McCain in your eyes.
TRUMP: Well, I can tell you one of the differences is that Senator Obama wants to raise taxes beyond belief, and senator McCain doesn't. And in a fragile economy like we're in right now, you cannot go around raising corporate taxes and lots of other taxes. You just can't do it. Then you really will see the great depression.
VAN SUSTEREN: But when we talk about taxes, you're a rich guy Donald. You just sold a house for an enormous amount of money. You're one of the richest guys. Senator Obama says he's not going to raise taxes on the people who aren't rich.
TRUMP: You know what I find? I find when people say that, and yet they're raising the taxes on the rich, they ends up raising the taxes on everybody. And ultimately, that's what would happen. Whereas John McCain is not going to be raising taxes and could even be lowering taxes.
And frankly, that's the language I like to hear, because the economy is very weak, it's very fragile. And any talk of tax increases, it's over, it's going to be over.
So I endorsed John McCain. I've known him for a long time. He's a brilliant guy, and I think he'll be a great president.
Oh, I find it so amusing when these celebrity types put out their endorsements...I mean who would have thunk that anyone would use the words "brilliant" and "McCain" in the same breath...
(and NO - I don't support Obama)
