Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

  1. I love it. He nonchalantly challenged every single assertion on which the “reporter” was asking questions, not by claiming it’s not true, but by calmly demanding sources and actual quotes. While eating an apple. (That was just hilarious; it says he’s not taking the reporter seriously, as he implies that the reporter isn’t taking his job seriously.)
    He didn’t allow unverified claims or hyperbolic vague “People say” crap into an interview. It’s not that he won’t answer such questions; he doesn’t even allow them to be asked!
    The lesson is, if you’re a journalist coming after this guy, you’d better have your facts straight and be “loaded for bear”. Which disqualifies the vast majority of mainstream media talking heads.
    Another thing he did that I loved: When asked “Why should we vote for you?”, he answered, and he did it in terms of why people should vote for him, and not why people should NOT vote for his opponent.
    I decided long ago that if I’m ever involved in a “town hall” style discussion with a political candidate, that’s the question I’m asking, and I’m not letting go of the microphone until it’s answered properly: the question is “Why should we vote for you?”, not “Why should we vote against your opponent(s)?”, so any mention of the “other guy” and his/her policies is an immediate fail.
    This guy knocked it out of the park. I’d vote for him if I were Canadian. Or if he came to America and ran for office here.

  2. I watched Keri Lake do a press conference when she was on the campaign for AZ gov. She did a fantastic job cutting through the BS from the “journalists” and demanding they focus on reality. But, even with that impressive performance, she could learn a thing or two from Pierre.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
