Paul LePage: We May Need Trump’s ‘Authoritarian Power’

Paul LePage We May Need Trump’s ‘Authoritarian Power’According to Maine Gov. Paul LePage, we may need Donald Trump to show “authoritarian power” in order to bring back the “rule of law” to the United States. Appearing on a Maine radio station Tuesday, the governor reiterated his support for the GOP nominee and dismissed concerns over the leaked audio in which Trump bragged about being able to grope women because of his immense wealth. “Sometimes, I wonder that our Constitution is not only broken, but we need a Donald Trump to show some authoritarian power in our country and bring back the rule of law because we’ve had eight years of a president [Obama], he’s an autocrat, he just does it on his own, he ignores Congress and every single day, we’re slipping into anarchy,” LePage said. And when asked about the damning audio tapes, LePage said: “Is he a slimeball? I’d be the first one to say, not a guy ideally I’d want my daughter going after. But I will tell you one thing, as the head of state, is he going to protect our nation and fight the debt or is he going to go after interns? That’s the bottom line.”
