Trump’s interview with Laura Ingraham: We don’t need diplomats, but we need more wall money

Donald Trump doesn’t just go on Twitter to get his unfiltered message out to America. After all, Twitter can be out for five minutes. But Fox News never pauses in their effort to not just spread the gospel of Trump, but help Glorious Leader when he hits tricky patches with language, or math, or logic. On Thursday, it was Lara Ingraham’s turn to prop Trump up for the evening, and their wide-ranging discussion covered immigrants (how to not have them), the State Department workers (how not to have them), and of course, Hillary (how would we live without her). And many, many things were said.

Trump on who’s really important around here:

INGRAHAM: And there—there’s a concern that the State Department currently is undermining your agenda.
TRUMP: So we don’t need all the people that they want. You know, don’t forget, I’m a businessperson and I tell my people,

you don’t need to fill slots, don’t fill them.” But we have some people that I’m not happy with there. 
INGRAHAM: But Assistant Secretary of State, you’re not getting rid of that position. 
TRUMP: All right. But let me tell you. The one that matters is me. I’m the only one that matters because, when it comes to it, that’s what the policy is going to be. 

Trump on “chain migration”:

TRUMP: Chain migration is a disaster for this country and it’s horrible. I mean, just take a look at him. Twenty-three people—potentially, 23 people…
INGRAHAM: Is that verified?
TRUMP: It’s what I heard, it’s what I gave.

In other words … no.
