Massachusetts auto magnate Ernie Boch Jr. has once again offered his case for Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump, and once again, we’re not sure if we follow.
Boch, a longtime admirer of Trump, went on Fox Business to stump for the man comedian Louis C.K. compared to Adolf Hitler earlier this week. “It’s only four years! Let’s give him a shot,” he said.
Last month, Boch appeared on CNN and compared voting for Trump to picking up a drunk girl at a bar at 2 a.m. “It’s 2 o’clock in the morning and there’s a few girls at the bar. You have to go home with one of ’em,” Boch said. “So you have to pick who you’re with, and I think Mr. Trump is the best qualified.”
Boch previously held a rally for Trump at his sprawling mansion in Norwood, attracting 1,000 like-minded supporters, a few former Patriots, and a fair share of protesters. Despite both men denying the event was a fundraiser, signs around the estate asked for all checks to be made payable to Trump’s campaign.
