Donald Trump on Citizen Kane

Kottke found Donald Trump on Citizen Kane

Many years ago, Errol Morris interviewed Donald Trump about Citizen Kane as part of a project called The Movie Movie.

Trump acquits himself pretty well on Kane and its lessons -- although I would not characterize Kane's fall as 'modest' -- and his commentary about the film is probably the first actually interesting thing I have ever heard him say. But I watched all the way to the end and he shoots himself in the foot in the most Trumpian & misogynistic way -- it's actually perfect.

You *have° to watch til the end.
