Yesterday, in an interview with Donald Trump, he weighed in on why he thinks Amanda Knox is innocent.. “I think I’m good at judging people. I study people (…). And I watched the Amanda Knox case unfolding in news reports. And this is not a guilty person.”
Whats even more impressive is who else Trump cites for support of his conclusion: “Even the prisoners think she’s innocent.”
Yes, one of the richest men in America is taking the word of prisioners in assessing the conviction of an american convicted of murder. Because he’s such a great judge of character.
Why, italian prisoners are even more reliable and trustworthy then.. well.. italian officials: “But Trump says ( Italian prosecutor Giuliano Mignini) is the one who should be in jail”.
Not content to let that rest, Trump continues with explaining the basis of his judgement of the prosecutor: “He looks like a madman to me. He looks like an absolute maniac. A nut job in my opinion. And it’s just my opinion.”
Yes, from listening to italian prisoners, watching the news, and sizing up the prosecutor, Trump concludes that Amanda Knox is not guilty.
I’m sure that will come to some relief to the italian jury who sat through hours of testimony, listened to the brutality of the senseless murder, and had to wade through the 10,000+ pages that constituted this trial.
But for Trump, its all about the American Girl (and he probably has a TM on that). “All I can do is speak up as a citizen of this country about a citizen of this country that was really treated very unfairly and it’s destroyed her life. She went to Italy to learn Italian.”
Trump apparently has no consideration for the young british girl who went to italy whose life was more then destroyed, it was taken from her unmercifully.
