Conservative British leader Nigel Farage appeared on the FOX Business Network on Saturday morning and put the latest manufactured Trump controversy into perspective.
The FOX News Insider reports:
Nigel Farage: Trump ‘Not Running to Be Pope–He’s Running For President’
“This is alpha male boasting. It’s the kind of thing –if we’re honest–that men do [on occasion],” he said, adding that he found the remarks “ugly.”
“There are going to be Republican candidates running for the hills, [putting their] own interest ahead of the good of the party,” he said.
By midday Saturday, a number of GOP Senators had denounced and distanced themselves from Trump, including Sens. Mike Lee (R-Utah), Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) and Michael Crapo (R-Idaho), as well as number of other high-profile Republicans, including former Gov. Christine Todd Whitman (R-N.J.) Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) and Carly Fiorina.
Farage said Trump should take time at the debate to publicly atone once more for his actions in the past: “I behaved in a…boorish way. I apologize…let’s talk about real issues,” the MEP suggested.
“At least theres an honesty about Trump…he is what he is…he’s not running to be Pope, he’s running for president of the United States,” Farage added, noting criticisms of Hillary Clinton’s perceived dishonesty.
