Who says Donald Trump can’t be president? He’s got foreign policy experience in spades! In an interview on Fox and Friends this morning, the Donald bragged that he probably had “more experience than anybody” dealing with foreign leaders. “I dealt with Gadhafi!” he proclaimed. “I rented him a piece of land, he paid me more for one night than the land was worth for the whole year… and then I didn’t let him use the land!

“I don’t want to use the word ‘screwed,’ but I screwed him!” Trump said triumphantly. When a host asked why he didn’t let Gadhafi use it, Trump replied, “Because I didn’t want to. That should be the thinking of this country, not the kind of thinking we have now, it’s ridiculous.” (More Donald Trump stories.)
