It would be wonderful if we could ignore Donald Trump’s incoherent burblings, which are typically fueled by dementia and unfocused rage. But occasionally one of his stream-of-unconsciousness ramblings stands out among the rest.

At a Tuesday night fundraiser, according to Politico, Trump issued a wide range of off-the-cuff remarks, ranging from cringe-worthy misogyny to ... well, massive self-ownage.


Trump noted that when he visited Steve Scalise after Scalise was shot, that Scalise’s wife “cried her eyes out.” Trump found that scenario, which is entirely predictable to those of us who aren’t sociopaths, quite startling. Trump added, “I mean not many wives would react that way to tragedy, I know mine wouldn’t.”

Well, Donald, it may further surprise you to discover that most wives are not employees under contract. And most wives would, in fact, react that way to tragedy. In fact, I’d bet most husbands would too!

But we can all agree with you that, no, your wife wouldn’t cry. I think you’d be pretty hard-pressed to find anyone that would.
