Donald Trump Rips Republicans For 'Mistakes' On Medicare, Says He Might Yet Enter The Race
[Cross-posted at Crooks and Liars.]
Anyone who takes Donald Trump seriously gets what they deserve. And yes, there were -- and apparently still are -- Republicans who take him seriously.
Last night on Greta Van Susteren's show, Trump -- who at one time, before he announced he wasn't running, was being touted on Fox by "Republican strategists" as a serious candidate -- not only ripped into the Republican Party for their idiocy with Paul Ryan's let's-kill-Medicare plan and Eric Cantor's refusal to help tornado victims, but threatened to enter the race after all, if the eventual Republican nominee turns out to be "a stiff."
Trump was too slippery to identify who might be among the stiffs, but it's safe to say candidates like Romney, Paul, Gingrich, Pawlenty and Santorum are on that list.
In any event, Trump told Van Susteren that he never actually really got out of the race, and he might decide to drop in, maybe as an independent, if the GOP fails to come through.
The guy is a complete circus act and should be laughed off the stage. It tells you a lot about today's Republicans that he hasn't been yet.
