Maybe there’s a reason The Donald prefers to keep his supporters anonymous: Every once in a while, he names them, and they turn out to be . . . not so supportive.
In an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo about women in combat roles in the military, Trump said, “I’ll tell you what, I know some woman that are just — Ronda Rousey is an example, who likes me. . . . I’d take her on my side as a fighter.” (Rousey is a mixed martial artist, actress, and the first and current UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion.)
Rousey was subsequently asked about Trump, and declared, “I wouldn’t vote for him. . . . I just really wouldn’t trust the guy with running my country, that’s all. I’m not really going to get into specifics of it, but, I mean, I don’t want a reality TV star to be running my country.”
Trump was asked on Meet the Press whom he talks to for advice on foreign policy. Trump said he “watched the shows,” mentioned John Bolton, and then added, “Colonel Jack Jacobs is a good guy. And I see him on occasion.” Jacobs later told Mother Jones that while he has seen Trump at “a number of functions,” he has had no discussions with Trump about national-security issues.
