In reading about W.C. Fields, I wonder if Trump did not see him as an idol. He certainly looked somewhat like Trump.

Here are some of W.C. Fields quotes:
“I never met a kid I liked.” — W.C. Fields
“I like children – fried.” — W.C. Fields
“A rich man is nothing but a poor man with money.” — W.C. Fields
“Anyone who hates children and animals can’t be all bad.” — W.C. Fields
“I am free of all prejudices. I hate everyone equally.” — W.C. Fields
“Women are like elephants. I like to look at ’em, but I wouldn’t want to own one.” — W.C. Fields
“Never try to impress a woman, because if you do she’ll expect you to keep up the standard for the rest of your life.” — W.C. Field
“Children should neither be seen nor heard from — ever again.” — W.C. Fields
“No doubt exists that all women are crazy; it’s only a question of degree.” — W.C. Fields


And here is one that Trump fell in love with ever since he was a child and he saw this W.E. Fields quote:

Do these quotes remind you of Trump?

W.C. Fields was a funny man though, and it is sad that is not one of the traits that Trump got from him.

Its funny you should mention it. I have thought of Trump as someone who could be Field's overachieving, teetotaling evil brother.

"Is this a game of chance?

"Not the way I play it, no."

I wonder how many Trump supporters are going to come into this thread whining about how they don't want to talk about Trump while they talk about Trump.

Those people are the personification of an own goal.

“It is impossible to find 12 fair men in all the world.”

Perfect.
