When I saw George Will’s comments via MSNBC this morning, I laughed and said to myself, Good for George (GOPer)Will. After all, someone in the Republican party needs to speak out against the incessant birther conspiracy nut, Donald Trump.
The Republican Inane Clown Posse’s number one performer, Donald Trump, injected life into an otherwise totally bland and monotonous Mitt Romney last week when he publicly threw his weird hair into the VP ring, including throwing a lavish fundraiser in Las Vegas for the presumptive nominee. The Donald may no longer be running for President of the Unites States, but it looks like he’s vehemently running for President of the United News Cycles. Trump is still hurling around ridiculous birther claims despite Obama not only producing his long form birth certificate, but totally destroying Trump comically at last year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Romney, who is no stranger to openly embracing the wacko endorsement (see Ted Nugent), left himself opened to criticism from the usual critics on the Democratic side. But apparently Romney’s blithe embrace of the bombastic billionaire and his willingness to use his washed-up celebrity to raise campaign cash is so egregious that it even caught the attention of reliable conservative Republican George Will.
Will, who ordinarily can’t find a Republican he doesn’t love, completely thrashed Trump when he called him a “bloviating ignoramus.”
“I do not understand the cost-benefit here. The costs are clear. The benefits, what voter’s going to vote for him because he’s seen with Donald Trump? The cost of appearing with this bloviating ignoramus is obvious, it seems to me. Donald Trump is redundant evidence that if your net worth is high enough, your IQ can be very low and you can still intrude into American politics,” said George Will on ABC This Week(Source: Mediaite)
Perhaps Will is overlooking the fact that two soul-less and morally bankrupt corporate shells who mimic the human form always stick together.
Trump, whose skin is about as thick as whatever the heck that thing on is head is, inevitably fired back at Will’s fairly astute observation of Trump and the Republican party’s continuous plunge into the contaminated waters of the lunatic fringe.
Regardless of how you feel about George Will, his comments were one hundred percent accurate and if Romney wishes to remain palatable among independents and rank-and-file Republicans, he would immediately sever ties with the Donald. Then again, much like with the Nugent endorsement, Romney shows himself to be a totally inauthentic, power-hungry phony who’s willing to cater to the lowest common denominator if it means more campaign cash or currying more Tea Party support.
