    Depends on whom you consider trump's more egregious enemies?

    Frugal, read the whole story. People always only show part of the interview to make him look bad.

    I can see how someone would think building houses for the poor in your 90’s and teaching Sunday school at 95 certainly makes someone as horrible as trump((:

    Iím not annoyed by that so much as his decades of lecturing from the sidelines as if he were some sort of statesmanlike moral authority. If heís a saint heís an insufferable one.

    You probably also didn't know that pretty much the only people who didn't want him fired were corrupt people in Ukraine who were worried that if he were replaced it would be with someone actually trying to reduce corruption. If Biden's son was doing corrupt activity Biden's actions were actually making his son more likely to get in trouble.

    Since it'll probably be a short list can you name the politicians that don't annoy you?

    He’s as close to a saint as anyone could be. The world needs more people like him. I have always appreciated his viewpoint.
