A man believes he can answer Donald Trump’s call for an explanation of the difference between a Nazi and himself.
Ray Doyle read about Trump repeatedly answering “you tell me” when asked by a reporter how his Muslim registry would differ from Nazi registration of Jews, and immediately began working on the brain-teaser.
Mr Doyle said: “The reporter doesn’t know the difference between Trump and a Nazi. Trump doesn’t know the difference between himself and a Nazi. So who does know the difference? The problem looked impossible and I was ready to give up.
“But then by chance I overheard a conversation between my two young children, who don’t understand questions and accountability because they’re basically imbeciles.
“One said ‘What’s the difference between upside-down and downside-up?’ and the other said ‘I don’t know.’
“‘There is no difference,’ I told them. ‘Fucking idiots.’
“And at that moment I also struck upon what I believe is the answer to Trump’s riddle.
“I’m keeping it to myself until I can tell Trump directly, which could be difficult.
“I got through to a member of his administration team this morning but when I asked if I could speak to Mr Trump he said ‘You tell me.’”
