Donald Trump Says Something Stupid #24: Trump On Minimum Wage - No, Yes, It's Someone Else's Decision (VIDEO)

Whilst on the O'Reilly Factor last night Donald Trump gave a master class in bullshittery.

In this lesson he showed exacty what to do if you either don't know the answer or don't want to be held accountably for your answer. Whichever it was he showed perfectly how a con man would answer.

The question O'Reilly posed to Trump was a simple one which deserved a simple answer. But we're dealing with Donald Trump here so we must look at it from the vantage point that he has no idea what the correct answer is. What gave Trump problems is that he could not read O'Reilly's face which is a must for a con man so he was left with the option of complex obfuscation through the art of bullshittery.

The question Bill posed to Donald was...

There has to be a federal minimum wage. What would you set the federal minimum wage at?

Trump, immediately in trouble, begins the art of the bullshittery and gives two answers in one sentence...

I would leave it and raise it somewhat. You need to help people, and I know it’s not very Republican to say.

O’Reilly sensing Trump is in trouble and throws him a lifeline...

"Well give me... ten bucks, ten?"

Trump immediately latches onto O'Reilly's gift but then proceeds to give a third answer...

I would say ten. I would say ten but with the understanding that somebody like me is going to bring back jobs I don't want people to be in that ten dollar category for long but the thing is that let the states make the deal.

Watch the quintessential con man, grifter, confidence man bullshittery here...

Trump has done enacted the same bullshittery throughout his campaign. Last year in a television interview Trump stated that a low wage floor isn’t necessarily a bad thing, then in a primary debate he infamously said that American wages were already “too high” then later said that U.S. wages were in fact “too low” finishing up in in May saying the minimum wage is best left to the states.

Nope. You can't attack what you can't nail down.
