I actually watched Trump speak live streaming, beginning to end, more than an hour, extemporaneously last night, during a rally in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Have to say, I only agreed with or was favorably impressed by, oh, maybe 90 percent of what he had to say. Of course, five percent at most gets reported, and that stuff is mostly material that was said tongue in cheek. Also picked up one of Trump's old books at the Goodwill and read it cover to cover. The man is consistent. I don't know where this is going to end up, but it sure is fun to watch and he has changed the debate, forever, to the better. When people get their underwear up in a bunch when Trump speaks up, they end up engaging in blunt and substantive debate (real debate, not merely sound bites) on how to seriously address the problem or issue he highlights, which otherwise does not happen in the name of caution and political correctness. The man is real. The longer this lasts the better.
