Much worth the time to listen to and share with your friends...
Speech is from 5:30 to 18:30 - then there is Q&A...
Peter Thiel defended Donald Trump as an “imperfect” candidate, who nonetheless gets the “big things” right, and who promised to disrupt the stagnation in Washington and usher in a new era of pragmatic governance.
“Nobody would suggest that Donald Trump is a humble man,” he offered, but the real estate mogul injects a “much needed dose of humility.”
Thiel made the comments at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. on Monday morning.
The tech mogul, who is openly gay, noted that a prominent LGBT magazine, the Advocate, ran an op-ed arguing that he had betrayed the LGBT rights movement because he backed Trump. The criticism illustrated the “lie behind the buzzword of diversity,” he said. “If you don’t conform, you’re not ‘diverse.'”
“No matter how crazy this election is, it is less crazy than the condition of our country,” he said.
