Late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel is at it again. In one of their man on the street videos, a staple of the show, a staffer asked random self-identified Clinton supporters about Trump's tax plans.
One was asked, "Would you be able to support anything about Donald Trump?" The reply was succinct: "Um, in short? No."
Later, she's asked, "Do you support her plan to eliminate taxes for those who make less than $25,000 a year?" She replies, "I would support that, yes."
A few others are asked about Trump's recently proposed tax plan, which proposes lowering the corporate tax rate, eliminating the estate tax and alternative minimum tax, and eliminating tax liability for low-income earners.
The segment concludes with the questioner asking, "And what you would say if I told you those are all Donald Trump's proposals?"
The responses vary from embarrassment, confusion, doubt, and praise of Trump.
Texas governor Rick Perry told late-night host Jimmy Kimmel that "America is a great place for second chances" when asked about running for president in 2016. Perry, appearing on Kimmel's show Tuesday night while on location in Austin, teased the idea of running again after his failed 2012 bid.
"Are you going to run for president again?" Kimmel asked, adding, "Obviously, maybe this isn't the place you want to announce it."
"It's probably not the place I want to announce," said Perry. "This is not the crowd I want to make the announcement to."
The men and women who go the hard yards to cover the White House belong to an organization that calls itself the White House Correspondent's Association. This outfit puts on a little soiree every year, where members can decompress after the tortures of being condescended to, hour after hour, by spokesman Jay Carney.
