First of all he roped himself into a, you know, certain group of people.” For those unable to crack the president’s mysterious code, Travis explained: “He said he had to pick a woman.”
Trump replied: “He said that. Some people would say that men are insulted by that, and some people would say it’s fine. I don’t know
