Kia Ora New Zealand, good morning and welcome to Newstalk ZB. It's Saturday and I'm coming to you live out of a hot and muggy New York City.
Pleased to report it's been a quiet week on Donald Trump watch.
I almost think we need a little intro, actually. A fitting theme tune that we can play every day or two for the next fourteen or fifteen months leading up to the U.S Election.
Duh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh Trump Watttch.
I had to go to England for a few days this week. It's always a good barometer of American sentiment and interests, actually, to see what the customs guys talk about when you arrive back in the U.S. I queued up on Thursday night. The first thing the guy asked me when I saw I was a journalist... "Oh, bet you're loving the Trump show!"
The weird thing is, despite the Don's success in the polls so far, he's not actually the most ridiculous candidate. They had some polls done this week in North Carolina...
