GRETCHEN CARLSON (HOST): You say that the public understands hIm better than the analysts, could be one of the most important things in this book. Why?
MICHAEL D'ANTONIO: People feel him. You know, they get this sense that this guy is coming from the heart. Now, we're all clumsy. We all say things that we wish we didn't say. We misspeak. We use excessive language. Now Donald's a little out there and he never apologizes. I don't know anyone else who never apologizes but people kind of get him. They know that he's trying to connect. And they respond to the authenticity. You know who else is really authentic? 


D'ANTONIO: The Pope. Here's two completely authentic guys. They represent vastly different points of view, but people love them both. And even people across the political spectrum love them both. It's fascinating.
