On YouTube, there is (was?) a video of him at some kind of speaking engagement.
He's at a podium, taking questions.
A woman asked him if he'd ever wanted to be something other than a commercial real-estate developer, and he said that he'd wanted to be a film director.
He's a just a nice man, answering questions with warmth and respect.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
