Carl Icahn: I'm Still with Trump; 'Salacious' Talk Happens Everywhere

Billionaire Carl Ichan is a very shrewd investor, very.

He doesn't have clue about economics, though.

That said, it is good to see he isn't influenced by the nonsense outrage over Trump's grabbing pussy comment and doesn't pretend he is shocked.

"Over my years I've listened to a lot of salacious talk in locker rooms, bachelor parties, et cetera, by a lot of high-level people, some of whom are now supposedly so outraged," Icahn told CNBC.com in a phone interview. "All I can do is refer to that great quote, 'Let he who has not sinned cast the first stone.'"

Former  GE CEO Jack Welch has withdrawn his support of Trump because of Trump's comment.

  1. And of course there's Bloomberg's 'Look at the ass on that one' comment. Are leftists disowning him? Of course not.

    There are a few people who are disgusted by Trump's comments for sincere reasons. I would count myself among them, and I am consistent in my condemnation. But I highly doubt most of the hedonistic liars that surround us are consistent. It's self serving outrage for the most part.

      What's wrong with looking at someone's ass?

      All my reasons for things I do are both sincere and rational. My disgust for El Trumpo stems from something that goes much farther than simply pointing out to some woman's pretty butt. Goes to the point that the man knows no constraint. He's as stupid as he's dangerous. And his supporters are foolish.

    Neither do Trumpistas, so he's in good company.

    That's so charming. Would you lend your support to someone who speaks like that in the locker room or bachelor parties?

      The correct procedure is to report the person to Dexter Morgan for quick termination. Just reach for any phone, call your local police department, and talk to your local blood spatter analyst. They know how reach me.

      My question thus remains unanswered, conveniently enough.

    3. That's my answer. I wouldn't support them, I'd report them to myself.

    1. I knew there was a reason I tuned out your comments.

    2. A fine antidote to Señor Torres self-righteous blustering is Linda Schrock Taylor's article reprinted on this website.
