You scurvy shyster bastard
There's no way Thompson would have had even the slightest shred of respect for Trump. He hated GW Bush for a lot of reasons but one of them was simply that "the president is a fool- the president cannot be a fool!". And Trump makes Bush look like Stephen ####ing Hawking.
But yeah, Thompson is one of those people I wish was still around, partly so I could hear him sound off on the modern political landscape. Ditto with Zappa and Lennon.
