Former Strategists Speak Out About Trump’s Claims
Addressing Donald Trump’s assertions that they have acted more irresponsibly and in more physically aggressive ways than his own pocket-sized campaign manager, Karl Rove, David Axelrod, and David Plouffe are pointing out the absurdities. The responses come after a particularly tense exchange between Trump and the hosts of Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.” Trump, in defending the indefensible, made the claims about Rove, Axelrod, and | Read More »

Trump: This Whole Abortion Thing is Very Confusing (VIDEO)
I hope any Republican who has thoughts of endorsing or backing Donald Trump if he wins the nomination has been watching the news today to get a sense of what their life will be like trying to defend Trump while he’s on the campaign trail. Mostly, it will involve answering a lot of embarrassing questions about whether they support the latest dumb/offensive thing Trump has | Read More »
Trump Campaign Manager: Ted Cruz Had Nothing To Do With Nekkid Melania Trump Ad
After weeks of caterwauling about the mostly naked picture of his wife, an image he concocted, being used in an ad, Trump’s campaign manager now says Ted Cruz had nothing to do with the ad.Read More »
Profound ignorance: Donald Trump thinks that judges sign bills, conduct investigations
A recent RedState article posed the question of whether Donald Trump was smarter than a fifth grader. If social studies (what used to be called civics) is part of the curriculum, surely he is not. Because unlike Trump, even a fifth grader understands that there are three branches of the federal government-the concept of “checks and balances.” You may recall that during the Texas Republican presidential debate, | Read More »
Rush Limbaugh Admits he is Unable to Do His Job when it Comes to Trump
I don’t think there’s really another way to characterize what he apparently said on his show today. According to Politico (I don’t have audio yet, but will work to get it as soon as I can), Limbaugh spent time today addressing the furor caused by his remarks yesterday about the Michelle Fields/Corey Lewandowski incident, some of which we covered here. Apparently, in addition to saying | Read More »

Via Politico: Donald Trump broke from his usual political script for part of a campaign rally on Wednesday to offer advice for success to his college audience. One boastful tip from Trump: “Always be around unsuccessful people because everybody will respect you.” * * * | Read More »
Trump’s Unhinged Attacks on Megyn Kelly Continue
Donald Trump is continuing on in his unhealthy fixation with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly. It has reached such a point that even his subservient toadies with Fox and Friends are forced to offer their feeble protestations against his mania. Trump made his daily call-in to allow the aforementioned toadies to lavish him with praise, and also to talk about the arrest of his campaign manager, | Read More »
New Wisconsin Poll Shows Cruz Pulling Away from Trump
A brand new poll was JUST released by Marquette Law School, and it shows two important things: First, that Ted Cruz is pulling out to a relatively comfortable lead over Donald Trump, and second, that Kasich’s support is high enough to likely cause Cruz to lose delegates. Via the inestimable Josh Jordan, who had this before Marquette even posted it on their website: Latest | Read More »
15-Year-Old Protester Pepper Sprayed At Trump Rally, Claims She Was Groped (VIDEO)
A 15-year-old protester was pepper sprayed in the face at a Trump rally in Janesville, Wisconsin on Tuesday afternoon. The teen, who stood next to a “Black Lives Matter” sign, claimed a Trump supporter touched her inappropriately and began shouting at the man who allegedly touched her. He laughed and smirked as she berated him, replying, “You touched me. I never touched you. Can’t help | Read More »

Is Donald Trump Smarter than a Fifth Grader?
Some years back there was a mercifully short lived television show featuring Jeff Foxworthy as a host, in which he would get a bunch of adults up on stage and ask them questions that were at least theoretically from elementary school textbooks. The show’s gag played off the same dynamic that basically animates every television game show other than perhaps Jeopardy – the innate desire | Read More »
