Just uploaded this after finding it at the very end of an old 60 Minutes interview with George Soros:

What?!

Said without a hint of irony. Full video is linked in the description.
AKA, he's a guy who actually HAS billions. Trump was called "humble" as he doesn't have much liquidity in his assets. So the difference is Soros can use and move his wealth for fear greater effect and influence than Trump could ever dream of. The difference between investing in markets VS real estate.

Found what? Why are we supposed to care enough to watch the you-tube video? What great insight is it supposed to provide?
Found something amusing to share. That is the premise of this thread, right? Not “great insight.”

Beyond that, it’s 4 seconds long and speaks for itself. You sayin’ you want that GIF-wrapped or something?

You act like there was some greater expectation for something shared for the lulz. Was that a knee-jerk reaction because you thought I was criticizing Soros? I wasn’t. I was mocking someone who thought Trump had notable “humility” in comparison. Even Trump’s supporters might find this 20 year old comparison amusingly off-base.

I wish that explained it, but nope. It was from a late-‘90s interview with Soros where 60 Minutes cut away to this man to explain Soros’ apparent contradictions (calling for regulations he is actively dodging, exploiting things he is telling authorities to change, calling himself and people like him the problem, etc).

They were literally equating the two men and saying that “humility” is the difference that explains this is. Soros’ perceived lack of humility is supposed to explain why he would warn us against people like himself while admitting that he is the problem.

Whether you love him or hate him, it’s laughable that anyone ever considered Trump humble. Heck, the 60 Minutes guy laughed too.

The dude claimed that:

1) Donald Trump has humility (lol!)
2) George Soros is anything like Donald Trump (basically, only difference being lack of humility...compared to Trump. lol x2)

That guy has patented "moron."

Edit for threat of vacation--teh funny:
