Yesterday was not a good day for Donald Trump. He found himself still mired in the mess he has created by attacking Heidi Trump, an act so egregious that Ann Coulter has called him “mental.” Worse still, his moronic communications director put him on the air with three conservative Wisconsin talk radio hosts, one of whom is in the #NeverTrump movement, who made it clear what kind of a buffoon he really is.
TRUMP: All I did was quote numbers from a story that I had confirmed. But you had a $2.2 billion budget deficit and the schools were going begging and everything and everything was going begging because he didn’t want to raise taxes because he was going to run for president. So instead of raising taxes he cut back on schools, he cut back on highways, cut back on a lot of things. And that’s why. Wisconsin has a problem and you’re losing jobs all over the place.
The fact is that Wisconsin did not have a $2.2 billion budget deficit. Trump made that number up out of thin air. As BuzzFeed, that’s right BuzzFeed is defending Scott Walker, says:
Trump later in the interview attacked Walker over what he called Wisconsin’s “real budget deficit.” His claim, that Walker oversaw a $2.2 billion deficit, is not true, and has been labeled as such by fact checkers severaltimes when Trump has made it in the past. Wisconsin by law is required to have a balanced budget. While there was at one time, according to some groups, a projected $2.2 billion budget shortfall in Wisconsin, Walker signed into law last summer a balanced budget for the next two years.
Wisconsin is not losing jobs. It has gained jobs under Scott Walker and the unemployment rate in Wisconsin is nearly a point below the national average.
What is funnier is that Trump is obviously afraid to go on with any talk radio host in Wisconsin because he knows, now, that his bull**** statistics and made up facts will be tied to his neck, metaphorically, set afire, figuratively.

I understand many refuse to support Trump or Hillary (I’m one of them), but I won’t be heading toward the Libertarian side of things in 2016. Naturally, the Libertarian party has grown | Read More »
