Classy Guy, That Trump

In his book, "The Art of the Comeback," Donald Trump brags, "If I told the real stories of my experiences with women, often seemingly very happily married and important women, this book would be a guaranteed best-seller." Similarly, in his book "Think Big and Kick Ass in Business and Life" Trump wrote that he's been with married women: "Beautiful, famous, successful, married -- I've had them all, secretly, the world's biggest names." Evidently, his supporters think this is great (unless, of course, it happens to be YOUR wife he's been sleeping with).

Shortly after Trump attended worship services on the Sunday before the Iowa caucuses, Nebraska Senator (Republican) Ben Sasse challenged Trump on his marital infidelities:
You brag abt many affairs w/ married women. Have you repented? To harmed children & spouses? Do you think it matters?
And then with regards to President Obama's penchant for issuing executive orders (and Trump's fondness for the use of eminent domain):
You talk A LOT about ‘running the country’ . . . as tho 1 man shld ‘run America.’ Questn5: Will you commit to rolling back Exec power & undoing Obama unilateral habit?
Then Sasse concluded:
These r sincere questions & I sincerely hope u answer rather than insult.
Trump's response?
@BenSasse looks more like a gym rat than a U.S. Senator. How the hell did he ever get elected?
Classy guy, that Trump.

Note: It was from a George Will column ("After Iowa, will Republicans finally get a contest without Trump?") that I learned of the existence and content of the tweets between Sasse and Trump. I did, however, need to consult other sources for some of this post's content.
