the last book I ever read (The Art of Her Deal: The Untold Story of Melania Trump, excerpt eleven)

from The Art of Her Deal: The Untold Story of Melania Trump by Mary Jordan:

CBS newsman Dan Rather invited Trump and Melania to sit for a joint 60 Minutes interview. In a segment taped in December 1999 and aired on January 11, 2000, a visibly skeptical Rather grilled Trump about his unconventional views. Watching the interview in 2019, it is striking how little Trump has changed in both the words he uses and his demeanor. He’s been reading off the same script for decades, with Melania nearby, glowing with admiration. When Rather asked about Senator McCain’s war record, Trump said exactly what he would say on the campaign trail almost two decades later: “Does being captured make you a war hero? I don’t know. I’m not sure.” He said other politicians are “dumber than a rock,” and that George W. Bush “doesn’t seem like Albert Einstein.”
