The practical joke that is the Trump campaign continues to add punchlines. Humble millionaire Donald Trump, in all his humility, explained to Matt Lauer on the Today show how he relates to the hardships of the American people, a country all about making something out of nothing and pulling oneself up by the bootstraps.
“It’s not been easy for me,” Trump said, “I started off in Brooklyn, my father gave me a small loan of $1 million."
Take a second to absorb that:
Points to Trump for relating to millennials by mentioning how he started off in Brooklyn with daddy's money, but come on. Lauer finally called him out on how a MILLION DOLLARS will not read as small to a lot (read: most) people, but Trump quickly defended himself by saying, "A million dollars is nothing compared to what I've built."
