Ivana Trump, former wife of the president, appeared on Good Morning Britain Monday and had good things to say about her famous ex. Two of the big quotes in circulation, via the Telegraph:

  • Racism: "I don't think Donald is racist at all," she said, addressing the latest brouhaha over the president's immigration comments. "Sometimes he says things which are silly and he does not really mean them but he definitely is not racist. He has so many people telling him left and right what to say, what not to say, and maybe it gets confusing."
  • Genius: "I don't think Donald is going to do irrational things. He is a stable genius, definitely," she said, echoing his own self-assessment. "He's very stable, very focused, very organized, and when he sets his goal on something, he does it."
Ivana also said she and the president stay in touch by phone, mostly to discuss their three children (Donald Jr., Eric, and Ivanka) and holiday plans, notes CNN. (More Ivana Trump stories.)
