Did anyone else notice Trump call the Boeing CEO a dumb son of a bitch?

I know that it was a night of big hits, but he said it.

Donald Trump: (50:03)
So here’s what happened, the bottom line. Boeing says, “No way, no way, no way.” The next week they say, “No way we’re doing it.” The next week they said, “How about $5 billion?” I said, “No way. No way.” The next week they said, “$4.8.” I said, “Nope. It’s got to have a 3 at the front of it. Don’t you understand, you dumb son of a bitch? Don’t you understand?” I turned out to be right. Turned out to be right. Nobody gets that. Nope. Got to have a three. Next day, they come back, “$4.5 is our best offer.” “Nope. I’m not doing it. I’m not doing it. Come back when you’re ready.” A month goes by, another month, they never heard about it, they never heard from me, they thought I was serious, I was, and they came back at $4 billion.

There will be no aerial refueling capability on the new planes, among other things that were stripped out to get the price where the asshole demanded. The two aircraft have reduced capabilities in several other areas, as well.

that he'll never get Washington State's electoral votes, so why not use the Mayor of Seattle, the Governor of WA and the CEO of Boeing as punching bags to delight his minions?

Just shows his character and lack of a speck of integrity. Just wish the MAGAts noticed some of it
