Andrew Kirell paraphrases Donald Trump’s tweet THUSLY:
I am smarter than Jon Stewart will ever be because he is so stupid and because his real name is not even Jon Stewart. It’s something much more Jewish-y. So, ha! Also: he is overrated.
This ad from the Obama re-election campaign, which is timed to coincide with Mitt Romney’s fundraiser with Donald Trump tonight in Las Vegas, is evidence that Democrats see the Birther issue as advantageous for their side.
Conservative pundit George Will is not the first person to wonder why Mitt Romney sees any political benefit in associating with Donald Trump.
What makes Will’s question in this regard especially noteworthy is that he couches it in such DELICIOUS VITRIOL:
This morning on “This Week,” ABC News’ George Will called Donald Trump a ”bloviating ignoramus,” questioning why presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is associating with the real estate mogul, who once again falsely questioned President Obama’s birthplace this week.
There’s something about Barack Obama’s global celebrity and cool image that annoys the hell out of Republicans, as I noted yesterday in THIS POST about a new GOP attack ad against the president.
And now Donald Trump, who knows a thing or two about celebrity, SAYS the attack is “a terrible ad” that “made Obama bigger than life…made him to be this super celebrity.”
I couldn’t agree more. As I said here yesterday, the ad only begs a comparison of Obama with the decidely awkward Mitt Romney.
This little video from the Democratic National Committee combines a few unflattering facts about Mitt Romney with some unflattering comments about him from Donald Trump.
What I don’t understand is how the Trump endorsement helps Romney in the long run. Some pundits say it could give the Mittster a boost among the Tea Party folks. But in a broader sense, it only reinforces his image as an economic elitist.
