Normally this wouldn’t be post-worthy. But on a slow news day in the middle of an even slower holiday weekend, I thought it may bring a smile to some faces. It certainly did to mine — for several reasons. Via Jake Tapper:
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.
“I do not understand the cost benefit here,” Will said on the “This Week” roundtable. “The costs are clear. The benefit — what voter is gonna vote for him (Romney) because he is 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,” Will added. “Again, I don’t understand the benefit. What is Romney seeking?”
Ouch. I guess we can assume that Trump isn’t on Will’s short list of VP favorites. Read the rest of Tapper’s piece here.
