At least one media personality is going a little deeper when it comes to Donald Trump.
Fox News’ Jesse Watters may have accomplished what no one else has in an in-depth interview with Trump — he was able to “humanize” the Republican presidential front-runner.
The wide-ranging interview aired Saturday on “Watters’ World” and covered a host of topics, to include how Trump met wife, Melania, to what he eats for breakfast, but perhaps the most surprising revelation is that the man does not drink.
Breaking from the expected lifestyle of a jet-setting billionaire, the real estate tycoon said he never acquired a taste for alcohol.
Trump also said he has never smoked marijuana.
“I would tell you 100% cause everyone else seems to admit it now-a-days so I’d actually tell you,” he said. “It’s almost like – ‘hey,’ it’s a sign.”
“I’ve never smoked a cigarette either,” he added.
All of which may make Trump “the number one healthiest man in America,” as a “Watters’ World” guest panelist described him.
Watters’ panel tried to analyze the “never smoked, never tried drugs and don’t drink” segment of the interview. It was unexpected but maybe not unusual given the level of control Trump is used to. From all past appearances, he doesn’t like not being in control.
Another redeeming quality about the candidate is how he raised his kids.
In an age where celebrity children are regularly splashed across headlines for wild, outlandish behavior, Trump’s children have been models of responsibility.
Trump talked about playing golf with Bill Clinton and while admitting the former president plays well, he acknowledged that his own game is not doing so well.
“My games have been good over the years but it’s suffering badly,” he told Watters.
He also got a shot in at President Obama, who is no stranger to a golf course, saying the president’s “golf game should be doing OK.”
“[Obama] plays more than most PGA professionals so his game should be doing OK – my game is suffering,” Trump told Watters. “And you know what; my game will suffer if I get elected because you have to focus – we have so many things to do between the debt and Obamacare and the borders and security and the military and the vets…”
“A lot to do – you can’t be playing too much golf.”
