Trump: I Would Have Prevented the Asteroid From Killing the Dinosaurs

NEW YORK, Ny. – During an interview Monday morning on Fox & Friends, Republican presidential frontrunner and billionaire entrepreneur Donald Trump said had he been alive 65 million years ago, he would have prevented the six-mile wide asteroid, which impacted the earth and caused a mass extinction, from wiping out the dinosaurs.

“You have these people, these scientists, who say ‘bad luck’ killed the dinosaurs. That’s categorically false,” Trump told Fox & Friends co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck. “Poor planning and lack of organization killed the dinosaurs.” Comparing prehistoric life to American politics, Trump said, “You’ve got the carnivores on one hand and the herbivores on the other. They can’t agree on anything; there’s no common ground. Me, I make deals for a living and you know what, I’m very good at it. I would have found that common ground.”

“You take my experience, my decades upon decades of experience with high-stakes negotiations, and you put me on the ground sixty or seventy-five million years ago,” Trump said, continuing, “The dinosaurs would be alive today. We’d be coexisting with them in perfect harmony. That’s a fact.”

When asked by Hasselbeck as to what kind of dinosaur he would be, Trump dodged the question, calling it irrelevant. “I’m not going to answer that,” he snapped before abruptly changing the subject to immigration.

Some sixty-five million years ago, dinosaurs, which existed from the beginning of the Jurassic period until the end of the Cretaceous period, were the dominant species on earth. Scientists believe an asteroid known as the Chicxulub, which struck the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, leaving a 180 kilometer wide crater, led to the extinction of the dinosaurs.

  1. This story is 100% false. The reason I know is that the supposed killer asteroid was not named Chicxulub.

    Chicxulub actually delivers my pizza in Detroit, and he is half Mexican, half Incan–and ALL American! Those pizzas are fantastic!

    (Tip: The asteroid flavored pizza is the best.)
