He must be devastated, then, by the fact that his hair is a national joke.


“eloquently recite historical anecdotes from the lives of the leaders he says he most admires — Theodore Roosevelt, Abraham Lincoln, Robert F. Kennedy, Alexander Hamilton, Ronald Reagan.”

I guess he saves Patton for sports reporters.
