Peter Thiel Talks Trump, Authenticity and Pro Wrestling

Was Trump real in a way that his opponents couldn’t match?

“Maybe pro wrestling is one of the most real things we have in our society and what’s really disturbing is that the other stuff is much more fake. And whatever the superficialities of Mr. Trump might be, he was more authentic than the other politicians. He sort of talked in a way like ordinary people talk. It was not sort of this Orwellian newspeak jargon that so many of the candidates use. So he was sort of real. He actually wanted to win.”

Via, as Trump would say, the failing New York Times.
