Bill Gates Meets Trump, Compares Him To JFK [VIDEO]

CNBC reports:

President-elect Donald Trump has an opportunity to establish “American leadership through innovation,” Bill Gates told CNBC on Tuesday. “A lot of his message has been about … where he sees things not as good as he’d like,” the billionaire Microsoft co-founder said on “Squawk Box.”

“But in the same way President Kennedy talked about the space mission and got the country behind that,” Gates continued, “I think whether it’s education or stopping epidemics … [or] in this energy space, there can be a very upbeat message that [Trump’s] administration [is] going to organize things, get rid of regulatory barriers, and have American leadership through innovation.”

      Two Gates in one day?

      • Guest

        Has he paid EVERYONE off???

        • David Walker

          I haven’t seen any of it. Come to think of it, however, I do wonder what my price would be? I’d love to think that my a “principles uber alles” kind of guy, much like Mr. Perdue, but I don’t know. But I would want it in cash.

    • Todd20036

      Yeah. My respect for Gates just went down to zero.

      • my first JFK thought was: “Billy, we barely knew ya…” but then I wondered if Bill’s comparison to JFK was a code to the CIA to start aiming…

      • Nausea

        Interpret this to mean he is going to get a yuuuuuuggggggge tax break from Trump tax code changes.

        I really don’t get what he’s trying to accomplish. He could have done a “hope for the best” thing without being so far removed from the history of the man or what he’s been doing with his cabinet appointments.

      That cat looks happy and stoned. Wish I was him.

  • Kevin Perez

    Bill knows that if you kiss Trump’s ring then you get what you want. Gates isn’t stipid.

  • Lazycrockett

    Does everyone just start Goose Stepping after meeting Drumpf? Cause it sure as shit looks like it.

    • Rebecca Gardner

      I think Aliens are now in control of the world. When people go into private meetings in Trump Tower the Aliens perform some sort of lobotomy on them to make the compliant.

            Please be specific, the Weather Polar Vortex? Or the Orange Polar Vortex? I need a funny story to tell when all the vodka is gone. 🙂

          • Lazycrockett

            why is your vodka gone?

            It’s not yet.

        • David Walker

          Medical marijuana passed and was signed by the governor. I’m not-so-patiently waiting for it to be available. I know, it’s not supposed to be as good as street pot, but it does have its virtues, I’m told. Alcohol is fine; I just preferred getting (being) stoned.

          • Chucktech

            If your medical marijuana is anything like California’s, I guarantee you it will “smoke” any dirt weed you get on the streets.

          • David Walker

            To change Carly Simon just a tad: “Anticipation is making me wait.”

          • Lawerence Collins

            Sounds like you need to go to a better dispensary. We know a grower in the 🍊County area. He definitely knows what he’s doing.

          • ColdCountry

            Here in Maine, too.

          • umm–try the hashish vape pens…. You know, seriously, I had gotten my medical mj card here in Arizona and soon after I was walking to the grocery store when a kid pulled out of the parking lot and hit me. Spent a week in the trauma center with a fractured spine (among other injuries). When I was ready to be released, I asked about pain meds, since I spent the week attached to an opium drip. i was told they would be delivered to my home by the pharmacy. Got home at 7pm, and called the pharmacy only to be told they closed at 5pm. I called my “advisor” from the Medical Marajuana shop I had signed up with–and they did a home delivery. i had never bought any on the street, and I don’t think i could have gotten through the night without that vape pen. I’m a big advocate 😉

          • David Walker

            Thank you. I have a doctor who tends not to have a problem writing prescriptions. Should medical marijuana ever actually come to pass, I suspect she’d have no problem with this.

          • ColdCountry

            Not as good??? I can’t even….

  • Rebecca Gardner

    What!!!!!!!!!!!!!??????????????????

    Lately I’ve been having serious thoughts of death, but I’m a fighter and it’s time to resist.

    • Martin

      Nearly 60 electors, that we know about, are now seriously questioning Trump’s fitness for the presidency. Keep that in mind, and wait like me. Things may not go as generally expected.

      • Chucktech

        I want to believe that. I really do.

        • Oikos

          Me too but then reality kicks me in the head.

      • Rebecca Gardner

        That is my only hope. The electors need to realize that they have a very real responsibility and if they just rubber stamp this election they are willingly enabling the destruction of our Republic.

        • Martin

          There remain about a dozen other scenarios under which Trump may be unable to assume office as well.

          Never count monstrosities before they hatch.

        • David Walker

          They have been smart enough to request and intelligence briefing. I find that encouraging.

          • Chucktech

            I should hope they know what their responsibility is and take it seriously instead of putting party before country.

        • JCF

          I’m not expecting it (Electoral College refusal) guys. I just don’t want y’all to get your hopes up, before crashing again.

          Work w/ your Congresspersons—or REPLACE the Drumpf-sycophant f#cks! [And “working with” includes mass protest, but accompanied by individual contact]. That’s the future you should expect.

      • looking

        Can’t find links to read about this info. Suggestions ?

        • Martin

          You’ll have to add them up like I did. 29 so far have signed onto a request for info from the CIA report. And, I’ve coincidentally found 29 other grumblers…

          I just googled +elector|electors +trump and read a lot of stories and kept a tally. It would be nice to have this info all in one place.

          • looking

            Thanks a lot, I’ll keep researching. I have gotten some updates from the David Pakman show.

      • Jerry

        But how many are already Democratic electors? I doubt there are 60 trump state electors in this category.

    • peacfulseas inWA

      Well marijuana has been legal here for a couple years maybe Bill packed a bit for few hits on the long elevator ride up to see the manager in chief.

  • AW

    I’m at a loss. Granted I know that the good work that Bill Gates has done through his foundation I’d hope that he would have been a bit more… bullish in his assessment of Trump and calling out his blatant racism and misogyny and the fact that the Trump administration is going to escalate climate change. I’m disappointed.

    • David L. Caster

      I think you meant Bearish. Gates was being Bullish. Trumps stock is on a run amongst many wealthy capitalists.

        Thank (false dead) god… From the article:

        “Something that seemed a little paranoid to me before all of a sudden seems potentially realistic, or at least something you’d want to hedge against,” said Nick Santos, an environmental researcher at the University of California at Davis, who over the weekend began copying government climate data onto a nongovernment server, where it will remain available to the public.

        The article also states that while fears of data destruction by the new administration is probably not going to happen, it’s obviously possible and this is a good insurance policy.

  • Blake J Butler

    What the fuck is wrong with this country ?

    The man is a bratty, more bigoted, egotistical, pathological liar, with a napoleon’s complex, he is more of a Dubya Bush instead of JFK. Nowhere near close.

    I swear i’m going to need therapy to deal with this shit, and it hasn’t even begun.

    And not an ounce of sympathy goes towards his supporters for what happens over the next 4 years, who can’t separate fact from fiction, lies from the truth and bought into lip service instead of actual policy.

    We shouldn’t be trying to relate with those people, white working class people have been fucking themselves over for years for voting for assholes like pussygrab. Also you can’t get through to them with their hate filled rants where they put their bigotry on full display.

    • Moebym, Resistance Pilot

      Oh, many of them knew just how bad Trump was, but voted for him anyway because Republican or because Hillary was worse, somehow.

      • Todd20036

        That still doesn’t let them off the hook. A raping, misogynistic, racist fraudulent, corrupt brat is better than an experienced, pragmatic woman because of emails and Benghazi – both of which were tall tales woven out of nothing.
        RIght. SUre.

        • Moebym, Resistance Pilot

          Also because she’s a woman, because women can’t be President.

          Rational thinking isn’t strong with these folks.

          • thatotherjean

            Fundamentalist religious thinking is very strong with many of them, though–including the belief that a woman must not have authority over men.

          • JCF

            Or STILL with the Fetus-Worship (though not for a second do I believe Drumpf really gives a damn re abortion—didn’t he try to get future-Tiffany aborted?—only that Pence taught him what to say).

    Comparing Trump with JFK gave me an episode of projectile effluvia so violent and powerful that it is now in deep space…traveling at light speed. The neighborhood squirrels and birds will never be the same.

  • BobSF_94117

    His words were supportive but the bemused look on his face was a bit more “What The Fuck was that!?!?!!?”.

  • Skokieguy [Larry]

    Okay Gates said Trump is like Kennedy, only because he wanted to see Trump cum without touching himself

    • stevenj

      JFK pissed a lot of people off including the CIA, the FBI, the mob, the military industrial complex and the oil soaked right wing Texas billionaires. IMO JFK was making an attempt to turn the country towards a peaceful and warless future but it didn’t pencil out (multi billion) dollar wise for all those he pissed off. He also pissed off the Cuban exiles for the Bay of Pigs fiasco and also Castro.

      Patch Tuesday? Looks like I picked the wrong day to quit smoking.

      • Lumpy Gaga

        No IT pro quits smoking on Patch Tuesday.

        Microsoft products are so vulnerable and all around bad, that the volume of patches dropping out of the sky to correct these problems as they were found – patches that sysadmins are advised to apply to their systems to avoid getting pwned through operating system software – made IT folk the world over demand a more organized response.

        That response was Patch Tuesday – the 2nd Tues. of every month, Microsoft drops for public consumption all the vulnerability patches they’ve been crafting since the previous Patch Tuesday.

        Pretty much every month out of the year, you can lay money that one of them is going to be a critical cumulative patch for Internet Explorer, their browser.

  • MikeBx2

    It’s time to rethink my opinion of Bill Gates.

  • gaymex1

    There just isn’t enough lipstick…

  • Bill Gates has a good reputation, but people forget that not that long ago he was head of Microsoft, which was stifling innovation with its opposition to portable office document formats; allowed Internet Explorer 6 to languish without substantive updates for over a half a decade—until Firefox came along—which set back Web development for half a decade; and fought antitrust lawsuits all over the world that led to things like Windows N.

    Gates also has reason to dislike the Clintons since Bill’s Justice Department initiated a major suit against Microsoft.

    If you’re using the Firefox browser, you can type “about:mozilla” into the address bar to see a remnant of Microsoft’s historical malfeasance. “Mammon” is an oblique reference to Microsoft’s Internet Explorer.

    Like someone at work said, “why because both were assassinated?”

  • TheManicMechanic

    The only thing I can assume is Gates feels when Drumpf talks up bigly about big changes that sound positive in the outset, the comparison between him and JFK is quite valid. The comparison falls apart when you realize the few positive aspects Drumpf speaks of translate to quite the opposite in his (and his supporters’) realities. Otherwise, YUUUUGE MONEY TALKING.

    • Mikey

      the only comparison between Trump and JFK that could be valid is that one got a bullet in the head, and chances are pretty good that the CIA will find a way to do the same to the other.

      • Bj Lincoln

        Unless Drumpf bankrolls a thriving colony on Mars requiring our educational system to do their damn job and get us ahead in science and math so our people can fill the new jobs, I hope you are correct. I say this with hesitation. I am not a fan of violence and do not promote or condone taking a life but I do hope you are right.

    Umm, fuck off.

    An excerpt from JFK’s June 1963 speech at the American University:
    “What kind of peace do I mean and what kind of a peace do we seek? Not a Pax Americana enforced on the world by American weapons of war. Not the peace of the grave or the security of the slave. I am talking about genuine peace, the kind of peace that makes life on earth worth living, and the kind that enables men and nations to grow, and to hope, and build a better life for their children—not merely peace for Americans but peace for all men and women, not merely peace in our time but peace in all time.”

    This does not even remotely sound like anything Trump has said. JFK’s speeches on civil rights also are totally opposite of Trump for what JFK (and his brother RFK) had in mind for the future.

    There simply is no comparison. In fact, the Dark Side that JFK wanted America to get past is still living and breathing and now in charge of both houses of Congress and the White House.

    • Bj Lincoln

      Nailed it.

    ROFLMAO. JFK???? No.

    well that settles it, the next game system I buy is going to either be from Sony or Nintendo.

    These are 0.001% percenters who are all coming to Trump Tower to discuss how they’re all gonna divide the trillions of dollars that they’re gonna steal from the rest of us.

  • EweTaw

    Gates has never been a great supporter of open markets; at least open markets in which Microsoft does not dominate. Just a reminder, as rich as he is Gates is still pretty much a one trick pony without the benefit of a liberal education. Liberal Arts are still a thing.

    • Bj Lincoln

      I know about art, history and science. Us artists use the others all the time and are hired by people who don’t have a clue to take care of those things. I have worked for and with some real jerks for an education and/or a job. I would place him on the jerks list. Partly due to this decision but mostly due to the fact he is a one trick pony. Those of us who had to work on the degree also were required to take subjects that seem unrelated. They make up about a third of our requirements! I am so glad I did. So are the people who have one. They make us a more well rounded person and education. Each subject connects to another and gives you so many more tools to draw from in dealing with ….life. There was a quote but I’m not sure who said it…”Beware of a man of just one book.” I have applied that to several people. Gates is one of them.

      • EweTaw

        Gates and Trump both.

    Now we know the source of all the bugs in Windows for years. Crazy.

    • Bj Lincoln

      Planned obsolescence to keep us coming back to the lesser expensive but you’ll pay for it then buy the new one strategy.

      To be quite frank, Win Doze has never been much about quality, just “good enough to ship.”

  • karmanot

    We’ll call it: GateGate

  • thatotherjean

    Before God, I thought that Bill Gates had principles and a brain. Looks like I was wrong on both counts. Damn!

  • DirtyPierre

    Another gerbil.

  • RealityBass

    Whore.

  • ultragreen

    I thought it was funny when the world chess champion, Magnus Carlsen, age 24, defeated Bill Gates on television in 12 seconds using only 9 moves. Bill Gates isn’t as smart as he thinks he is – that’s a common problem with billionaires.

  • 2patricius2

    Ah, yes. Trump is just like JFK. Competent, intelligent, diplomatic, a war hero, a politician, concerned about human rights, someone who will challenge Russia…..
    Oh, wait. That is not Drumpf.

  • royinhell

    Because he has a hole in his head and a lot of mistresses?

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Well….that’s disappointing.

  • OdieDenCO

    billy g. as a stand up comedian, you are an utter failure.

    Oh everyone is just lining up to repatriate their overseas cash at a reduced rate.

  • Mike Knife

    JFK was crazy he almost got us into World War Three, the end.

    • stevenj

      Actually JFK did something to prevent WW3 but you’ll have to do your own research.

      • Mike Knife

        JFK tried to take the job of printing money away from the World Bankers so they had to CIA kill him.

    • Gianni

      Where did you get that idea?

      • thatotherjean

        The Cuban Missile Crisis was some damn scary brinkmanship. The USSR agreed to remove their missiles and we won, but we took it right to the edge of war. I lived in the DC suburbs as a kid, and my dad worked in the State Department–I remember how terrified we all were, Dad included. We were lucky to have come out of that one alive.

  • Gerry Fisher

    I’d say that he’s talking about a hypothetical silver lining, but he’d need to be on hallucinogens to detect that kind of silver lining.

  • boobert

    I don’t get it . The world has truly gone batshit crazy! Now trump can brag about being JFK.

  • TampaZeke

    I honestly feel as if I’ve awakened from a nightmare into an alternate and insane reality world! I find it so hard to believe that intelligent people are falling for this crazy con-artist’s shtick!

  • NancyP

    Well, they (Trump and JFK) both were and are serial adulterers.

    • stevenj

      The world of politics is filled with serial adulterers. The world is full of serial adulterers.

      Mussolini… Corporatist all the way.
      Running the People’s Government like a business…
      … Protecting business/State interests, while screwing over the People in the process.

  • houstonray

    So the richest man on the face of the planet likes Trump and his incoming administration? Color me not surprised.

    Screw the barriers! Screw the rules! Screw the laws! And the money keeps rolling in from everywhere….

  • kladinvt

    At least Gates is finally showing the world what he really is.

    • David From Canada

      It’s simply a case of one very wealthy man supporting another wealthy man, no matter what. They’re both brothers rolling around in all those $$$$$$$$$$.

  • Tammy Rainey

    yeah, because America hasn’t done shit in innovation for the last 20 odd years, right?

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    Donald may be as horny as JFK but that’s it.

  • robirob

    I imagine all Donald had to say is “Bill, I’m gonna push that Firefox browser off the internet and you will rule the internet with your internet explorer thingy, oh you call it Microsoft Edge now?? We are going to make the internet great again”” to get Bill Gate’s endorsement.

  • Max_1

    I want to see that $100 bill Donald used to wipe Bill’s mouth after THAT blow job…

  • Nasty Girl Brianna

    Oh God he drank the Kool-Aid.

  • RJ Bone

    Money grubbing weasel. He’s a thief anyway, but I guess I expected better based on his wife’s influence.

    Ah well, money wins over good again. Fucking asshole.

  • Curtis Jensen

    Yeah “regulatory barriers” also known as clean water laws, safety regulations, wage regulations, fair labor regulations, air pollution regulations etc.. Nobody disputes that Trump will be a boon for 1%’ers and corporate profits. It’s the massive cost to regular people that we’re all concerned about. Bill Gate’s just s*** all over his own legacy creating normalization of this horror show.
