"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

"Busy, busy, busy, busy! Need a vacation!"

Best Satan Ever!

I left this part out on purpose:

Blumenthal responded:

Blumenthal is right, but what's telling is that Trump thinks he's winning some kind of victory with this argument.  They really are the rantings of a child, not a grown man; of a person lost in delusion, not someone dealing with the facts in front of him.  Trump is shooting the messenger; it's classic ad hominem, and it has nothing to do with the two grand juries investigating him, his campaign, and his family and administration.  Blumenthal could be a looney in a clown suit spraying the interviewer with a seltzer bottle, it would make no difference to the investigations.  The frightening part here is Trump thinks is this acceptable, and clever, appropriate and to the point.

And this afternoon, he can't let go:

I'm guessing the next NYT interview will be in September?

And back to Blumenthal:

The petulant child always has to think he has the last word.  He didn't.
