Donald Trump boasts he has 'one of the great memories of all time' — and can't remember the last time he apologized

There are quite a few gems in Donald Trump's long and thorough interview with The Hollywood Reporter — such as when he whipped out "a Post-it that says 'Tom Brady's New Cell #.'" Or, when asked about the last thing he apologized for, he replied:

It was too many years ago to remember. I have one of the great memories of all time, but it was too long ago. [The Hollywood Reporter]

There were, of course, some more serious moments, too. When asked how he views Hillary Clinton, Trump likened her ongoing emails scandal to Watergate Part II.

Hillary has problems far greater than the nomination. If you look at what's going on with the emails, it's a fraud if you think about it. This looks like Watergate on steroids, frankly. Watergate was about the cover-up more than the act. This isn't something we're going to solve tomorrow. This could go on for years. You can't have a nominee who is under investigation. What are they going to do, run and then two nights before the presidential race she gets indicted? General Petraeus, for doing 5 percent of what she did, his life has been destroyed. And it goes up to 20 years in prison. It's from one to 20 years for what she did! [The Hollywood Reporter]
