Reporter Asks Trump: ‘Do You Ever Cry?’ (VIDEO)

A reporter for the Christian Broadcasting Network asked Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in an interview posted Tuesday if he has ever cried before.

David Brody prefaced that doozy of an inquiry by telling Trump that this was his “Barbara Walters question.”

“I’m curious, have you cried before?” Brody asked Trump. “And if you have—has that been something that you’ve done in your life?”

“Well, that’s even beyond a Barbara Walters question. She has never asked me that,” Trump replied. “No, I’m not a big crier. I like to get things done. I’m not a big crier. I’m not somebody that goes around crying a lot. But I know people like that. I know plenty of people that cry. They’re very good people. But I have not been a big crier.”

Trump had previously been asked the same question earlier this month on Jimmy Fallon’s “The Tonight Show.” Trump told Fallon he’d cried when he was one year old.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
