Donald Trump may be the only person alive equally capable of charming Kanye West, Jim Brown, and Mitt Romney. However you may feel about his shtick on the stump, the guy must have a genius-level quotient of personal charisma in private conversation when he feels like summoning it.
CNN host Brooke Baldwin knew pretty early on in this interview that she had no chance of baiting NFL great Jim Brown into bashing Trump.
100 Percent FedUp Reports:
“When he goes through what he went through to become the President, he’s got my admiration. Because no one game him a chance. You know they called him names. Ahh…people that called him names when he won, he reached back and brought them along with him. He held no grudges.”
When race was brought up during the interview on CNN Tuesday, with Baldwin displaying a graphic demonstrating a majority of Trump’s cabinet nominees were white and what he thought of that, Brown said he didn’t want to look at it in a racial context. He also offered a rarely told story of how some of the biggest influences in his life were white.
“The three greatest people in my life were white, OK,” Brown said, “My high school coach, my high school superintendent and my mentor in Manhasset, Long Island,” he said.

If we could only get such honest truth from Obama, we would all be better off.
