THIS IS THE MOST FUN STORY TO COME UP IN A LONG TIME. I've laughed and laughed. It might as well be a satire, although it isn't. On Thursday, President Donald Trump toured a Ford Motor Company plant in Michigan where he naturally gave a speech, introduced by Ford Chairman Bill Ford - a direct descendant of founder Henry Ford.

Reading from his prepared remarks - which praised the firm for teaming up with General Electric to produce ventilators and face shields for coronavirus medical workers - Trump read “The company, founded by a man named Henry Ford,” then ad-libbed "Good bloodlines, good bloodlines." Looking up, he flashed a charming smile as he said, "If you believe in that stuff, you've got good blood." Almost chuckling.
