GOP frontrunner Donald Trump will retweet just about anything, even quotes from Italian dictator Benito Mussolini.
This morning, Trump retweeted a Mussolini quote that was attributed to himself.

Trump was ridiculed for the retweet on Meet the Press by host Chuck Todd. Trump deflected in the most Trump way possible.
“Look, Mussolini was Mussolini,” he said. “It’s OK to… it’s a very good quote, it’s a very interesting quote, and I know it. I saw it… and I know who said it. But what difference does it make whether it’s Mussolini or somebody else? It’s certainly a very interesting quote.”
