Adrien Broner was on The Breakfast Club early Wednesday and, during his interview, he answered a series of questions with roughly the level of thought you'd expect from a guy who's made a living off taking punches to the head.
Broner told the skeptical Breakfast Club hosts that he plans to vote for Donald Trump because, according to him, "everything he's saying is crazy, but everything he's saying is correct." A simple fact check may undercut that reasoning, but this is Adrien Broner, not Stephen Hawking, so what are you going to do?
When Broner was told that "Mexicans [are] going to hate you" for that quote, Broner pointed out that it doesn't matter because they already hate him.
When pressed further on the logic behind his Presidential choice, Broner also told host Angela Yee that his decision is based on his bank account.
"Man, what I'm saying is this man, he gonna lower them taxes," Broner said. "That's what I'm with, for real, because taxes have been kicking my ass."
When told that paying at a higher tax rate means you make a lot of money, he was unmoved.
"So what?" he said. "Lower them shits."
And sooner after saying that, he added: "The rich gonna get richer, and the poor gonna stay poor. Oh well."
Outside of talking about Trump, Broner answered questions about that staged video of him throwing change in a Wal-Mart line, posing with guns on Instagram, Floyd Mayweather, and whether or not his criminal record even allows him to vote (somehow it does). There's a lot of ground to cover with this guy. He was also able to duck questions about the recent accusation that he robbed a man outside a bowling alley.
The clip above is more than worth setting aside five minutes for, if for no other reason than to see Broner try (again) as hard as he possibly can to play the heel.
