Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, April 29, 2022

Donald Trump worried that "dangerous" fruits could be flung at him by protesters, according to newly-released excerpts from his sworn deposition for an upcoming trial in New York. "It's very dangerous stuff," Trump said in the deposition, invoking a fruit-basket worth of potential projectiles, including tomatoes, pineapples, and, perplexingly, bananas. "You can get killed with those things," he said.

Deposition Transcript Reveals Trump Fear Of Flying Fruit

Rachel Maddow shares a bizarre transcript from a deposition taken from Donald Trump in a civil case in which protesters are suing him for rough treatment at the hands of security outside of Trump Tower, in which a lawyer explores Trump's unusual preoccupation with the possibility of being injured or killed by a thrown piece of fruit.

I hope DOJ quotes this every time a Trump supporter claims their axe handles and poles aren't dangerous weapons[:]

Former president Donald Trump said he feared protesters would hit him with tomatoes, pineapples and other "very dangerous" fruit at his campaign rallies, declaring in a sworn deposition that "you can be killed if that happens."

It's only dangerous in his mind because it's the humiliation that's driving his thoughts.

He knows a banana can't kill you. But the public humiliation is as bad as death in his mind.

Rotten Tomatoes really only stink and make a mess...

Now if you find someone wanting to hurl coconuts and Pineapples and such all the power to them and may their aim be true. He is a wannabe banana republic dictator after all.

Throw something at a current or past president and you risk of lead poisoning.

You all may laugh but the British Army has been practising for just such an eventuality.

Might be able to understand his objections if they had been throwing pineapples and coconuts. As it is, it comes through plainly he didn't want the humiliation.

Dotard is deathly afraid of pineapples after having one shoved up his fat tuchus by Putin during the Helsinki summit.

Do you know the difference between intelligence and wisdom?

Intelligence is knowing a tomato is a fruit.
Wisdom is not putting one in a fruit salad.

@#17 ... Throw something at a current or past president and you risk of lead poisoning. ...


But that did not seem to be fmr Pres Trump's concern.

Why did he specifically, quite specifically, call out bananas, et al?

Why does he seem to be so afraid of the particular items he mentioned, as opposed to any item thrown at him?

Your question raises a valid point. Care to address it?

The tomato is very dangerous and anyone carrying them should be beaten.

But guns are perfectly ok and everyone should carry one.
