While im not old, im old enough to have heard actual old people make those kinds of references before. To someone in my generation, someone in a mask might be referred to as "batman" or "jason" due to our own pop culture references. To someone in Trumps generation, the Lone Ranger is a very valid reference.
And while it may make him look old...he didn't campaign on a bus called the "No Malarky Express".
Honestly, his comment was neither smart nor dumb. It was a nervous bit of humor. Folks need to get a grip, let people just live. The guy didn't almost launch a nuke or something...he made a bit of humor (or, what people in his age group typically call humor).
Something else to keep in mind, from a personality standpoint: to him wearing that mask is humiliating. I know plenty of very wealthy people...trust me. Wearing a mask is humiliating to him. The fact that he did it is pretty significant. Give the guy some credit.
And no, im not a fan of Trump either (despite my frequent defense of him in situations like this).[/quote
I can't disagree with that, thanks for your input.
