In Impromptus, National Review’s Jay Nordlinger writes on what Jay calls President Trump’s refreshing candor:
I’ll tell you something I like about Trump — his occasional bursts of candor. You remember when he fired the FBI director? His flacks said he did so because the director had treated Hillary Clinton unfairly and all that. Trump said, Hell no — I fired him because of the Russia probe. I appreciated that candor.
Similarly, his flacks said he was going to Pennsylvania to participate in an “economic event” at a factory. Then Trump tweets out, “Will be going to Pennsylvania today in order to give my total support to RICK SACCONE, running for Congress in a Special Election (March 13). Rick is a great guy. We need more Republicans to continue our already successful agenda!”
It was a campaign event, see? And the president blurted out the truth.
Even more refreshing were President Trump’s remarks on the state of his heath, reports Jay:
“A lot of people go to the gym and they’ll work out for two hours and all. I’ve seen people … then they get their new knees when they’re 55 years old and they get their new hips and they do all those things. I don’t have those problems.”
