Donald Trump, who will spare no interview to make the point that he’s considering, yes seriously considering, a run for the White House, broke from a conversation about another potential candidate, Sarah Palin, to talk Libya Monday morning. Chatting with the Fox and Friends crew, Trump served up a gem: bragging that he “screwed” Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.


“I rented him a piece of land,” Trump explained, saying Gaddafi paid “more for one night than the land was worth for two years, and then I didn’t let him use the land.” Trump explained that that’s the kind of tough negotiating he’d bring to international affairs, or something. “That’s what we should be doing. I don’t want to use the word ‘screwed’, but I screwed him. That’s what we should be doing.”
