Fox and Friends just spoon feed him info and he regurgitates it. It's unreal

Also, not sure the Jewish people needed a new word for Exodus.

I think it's in the next phase, where politicians will either embrace new voters by being tolerant and diverse in their policies, or scare what they got away due to ridiculous policy proposals that mandate and threaten.

I can kind of see where they are coming from, though. Look at how we are just starting to get automated cars. Now imagine how automated they will be in 50 years, and how that will change how people learn how to drive. And will people "driving" in these automated cars be skilled enough to take over if something goes wrong?

I don't know anything about planes, but I assume this statement was just as fucking dumb as the one about carbon dioxide being the building block of life and so lots of it is nothing to worry about.

I will always trust an automated car over a random driver. Even if something goes wrong, it will still be safer to have a computer behind the wheel than a person.

People today literally drive their cars into lakes because "a GPS told them to". I'll hedge my bets with automation over the general public.

Richard Quest on CNN just normalized Trump again by saying he agreed with him about modern air flight without mentioning how batshit insane his tweets were.

You may regret that when Skynet becomes self-aware.

Well, just remember, you aren't really trusting an "automated car", you are trusting some random programmer who told the car what to do. As a programmer myself, I know how easy it is to fuck something up in some completely obscure way that no one would notice until it's out in the public and shit starts going wrong.

What a nonsensical statement. Jets are complicated, but the pilots have tens of thousands of hours of practice to fly them. Automation and things like GPS and synthetic vision have made piloting safer than ever. Uneducated buffoon.

Due to those comments, he should be forced to decommission AF1 and start flying around in a mechanical propeller plane exclusively. Let that hair blow in the wind!

While they're at it; get rid of that stupid gas powered engine and throw some clean coal in that bitch!

The shitstain probably thinks airlines hire pilots the same way he staffs his administration.
