Donald Trump 1When Republican front-runner Donald Trump sat down with Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro for an interview that aired Saturday, there was plenty on the agenda.

And nothing was off limits.

Trump spoke on a myriad of topics, including illegal immigration and making Mexico pay to build a wall to who he might choose as a running mate. But it was his comments about Black Lives Matter that brought out the most vitriol.

Pirro mentioned Democrat presidential candidate, and former Maryland governor, Martin O’Malley’s apology after he said “all lives matter” during his speech at Netroots Nation conference in July, which Trump called “pathetic.”

“He apologized like a little baby, like a disgusting, little, weak, pathetic baby. And that’s the problem with our country,” Trump said.

“How can you apologize when you say black lives matter, which is true, white lives matter, which is true — all lives [matter], which is true?” Trump asked. “And then they get angry because you said white and all. We don’t want you to mention that. What’s he need to apologize for?”

On a personal note most American voters don’t hear much about, Trump mentioned how he raised his children by preaching to them about “no drugs, no alcohol, no cigarettes” and the fact that he doesn’t drink either.

“My brother was an alcoholic, he was an amazing guy, handsome – the most handsome guy you’ve ever seen. He was the life of the party, Fred, he was an incredible guy. But he died of alcoholism.” Trump said, adding that his brother lectured him about not drinking or smoking.
