Donald Trump sat down with ABC News’ Chief Political Correspondent George Stephanopoulos yesterday because unfortunately 11/8 isn’t here yet. Trump had recently received criticism for taking a break from campaigning to attend to business for a new hotel he’s opening. He defended his decision to attend to personal business saying:
I built one of the great hotels of the world. What am I supposed to do, not show up? I’m taking one hour off. I’m going to North Carolina right after this, then I’m going back down to Florida. I’m going up to New Hampshire. I’m all over the place. I can’t take one hour off to cut a ribbon at a one of the great hotels of the world? I mean, I think I’m entitled to it.
Trump, entitled. No, of course not. But he couldn’t resist an opportunity to get a dig in on his opponent Hillary Clinton and criticize her for doing the same thing. Clinton took Tuesday night — the night before her birthday — off to attend her homey Adele’s concert, and though the singer is the one thing the presidential candidates actually agree on, this is what Trump had to say about it:
I think it’s so unfair because, you know, Hillary Clinton goes to see an Adele concert last night, and everybody says, “Oh, wasn’t that nice, isn’t that wonderful?” She goes, she does one stop. She has no energy. She’s got nothing going. She does one stop. And nobody complains about that. Nobody complains when she goes to an Adele concert all night long, while I’m making two speeches at rallies with, you know, massive crowds.
Silly overgrown Oompa Loompa man, don’t you realize going to a sold-out concert for an artist with millions upon millions of fans both Democrat and Republican alike is actually a campaign move? And a good one at that?

“All I Ask” is for 11/9 to be tomorrow.
