Boyle on Trump

I sort of admire Trump in a way. Initially I thought that Trump was like somebody playing a president in a porno, and as it's gone along he's kind of aged and now he looks like someone robbing a back wearing a rubber mask of his own face. And the incredible thing about him is that he's managed to run a fear campaign and it's worked on a country of people who are on anti-anxiety medication. They're heavily drugged people and [yet] he's managed to scare them. I actually think his weird facial colour might be an attempt to cut through their fog of medication and register on their senses, because he's sort of getting brighter. Hillary Clinton is wearing brighter, blocky kind of colours as well. That's why it's called the primaries.
