I do stand before you as was
noted here really having achieved greatness. I mean I’m not just
an overrated general, I am the greatest, the world’s most overrated.
So I would just tell you too that I’m honored to be considered
that by Donald Trump because he also called Meryl Streep
an overrated actress. So I guess I’m the
Meryl Streep of generals. [Laughter] And frankly that sounds
pretty good to me. And you do have to admit
that between me and Meryl, at least we’ve had some victories.
And some of you were kind in the reception and asked me
you know, if this bothered me to have been raided this way,
based on what Donald Trump said. Of course not, I’d earn my spurs
on a battlefield, Martin, as you pointed out. Donald Trump earned his spurs
in a letter from a doctor. [Laughter]
Not in the least bit put out by it. And I think the only person
in the military that Mr. Trump doesn’t think is overrated
is who you pointed out, Martin. That’s Colonel Sanders.
