Major Tom: Back in high school, my first year, there was this bully who used to stuff me into the garbage can each morning upside down in front of the class.. sometimes the teacher would be present and laugh with the kids, too. Anyway, one day I went to school with about a half dozen belt buckles strapped around my boot. When the bully approached, I kicked him as hard I could in between the legs and he went down crying.. the school nurse had to come! And that's the day I gained dignity and respect for myself.. and the bully never bothered me again And you know what? Mr Trump reminds me of that bully
