Trump: RNC Engaging in ‘Deceptive Washington Tricks’ by Using Me in Fundraising Notice

Donald Trump is pretty pissed off at the RNC today, accusing them of illegally using him in a fundraising notice to Republicans. Here’s the notice in question, which Trump himself posted to Facebook:
The RNC, which is probably not on my side, just illegally put out a fundraising notice saying Donald Trump wants you to… Posted by Donald J. Trump on Saturday, February 13, 2016

As you see above, Trump claims that the notice was quickly withdrawn, but he didn’t stop there. He put out a statement referring to the fundraising notice as another installment of “deceptive Washington tricks”:

Fox’s Bolling to Republicans: If You ‘Truly Care About America,’ Lay Off Trump

Screen Shot 2016-02-13 at 12.12.12 PMFox News’ Eric Bolling ended today’s Cashin’ In by firing a warning shot to Republicans about their fierce resistance to Donald Trump. He was set off by an anti-Trump Super PAC going through a list of The Donald’s past liberal positions––a Super PAC run by a former Mitt Romney campaign official. Bolling said he’s mystified how some Republicans are “more afraid” of losing to Trump than to a socialist like Bernie Sanders, calling the GOP establishment “almost as bad as the liberals running DC, just more whiny about stuff.” He called out a few people by name––including frequent O’Reilly Factor guest Bernie Goldberg––before delivering this message:
“Look, establishment, if you truly care about America as I do, Trump’s not your problem. Liberals and socialists are. Why not use that Super PAC money to Continue reading "Fox’s Bolling to Republicans: If You ‘Truly Care About America,’ Lay Off Trump"

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 10.31.33 PMOn Fox News, a Donald Trump supporter and tattoo artist who works in Seabrook, NH — where Trump recently won the primary — was featured for his latest ploy to get people through the door: If a customer wants a tattoo about Trump, it’s free! Bob Holmes said he likes Trump because “everybody’s trying to be politically correct and nobody says anything because you … don’t want to be called a racist or whatever. I think that he’s saying exactly what everybody wants to say.”
When asked how many he’s done he said, “I’ve done 35, 36 now … We’ve done four or five of his face.

Here’s the Amazing Trump vs. Sanders Debate You’ve Been Waiting For

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 5.33.59 PMA Bernie Sanders/Donald Trump matchup looks less impossible than it ever has before. And even though we still have months of primaries to slog through before we get our first presidential debate, thanks to two comedians we can watch a sneak preview of that great showdown. James Adomian and Anthony Atamanuik are two performers who have built their scarily good impressions of the candidates into a remarkable comedy routine, pitting Adomian’s tempestuous, percentage-obsessed Sanders against Atamanuik’s shrewdly subdued and smug take on Trump. The pair have taken their act, which appeared originally at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre and other New York City venues, to the road with a national tour. Adomian and Atamanuik appeared on CNN Friday afternoon, phasing in and out of character, much to the amused consternation of host Brooke Baldwin.
“I see it as an act Continue reading "Here’s the Amazing Trump vs. Sanders Debate You’ve Been Waiting For"

Is Trump Hinting He Will Sue Cruz Over Canadian Birth?

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 3.51.44 PMA few days ago, a some Trump supporters filed a federal lawsuit against Ted Cruz in Alabama, just as a lawyer did in Texas a few weeks ago. The lawsuits center around Cruz being born in Canada, which is something Donald Trump has been insisting makes him unqualified to be president. Trump has maintained that he isn’t the one who brought up the “birther” claims. He swears he was just responding to a journalist who asked about it. That being said, he has also refused to let it go in the weeks since. Cruz was a sympathetic character at first, fighting back against Trump, his supporters, and their claims, which seemed ridiculous to many consumers. His own gaffes and dishonesty, though, took his victim status down considerably. Now, many political observers don’t see him as the undeserving recipient of Trump’s laser-focused contempt. Now, Trump has taken to Twitter Continue reading "Is Trump Hinting He Will Sue Cruz Over Canadian Birth?"

CNN’s Byers TMZ-Esque Report on Scarborough’s Trump Resort Stay Flimsy as it is Feeble (UPDATED)

js_360There are nothingburgers in this business served up as yuge entrees of behind-the-scenes insight. And then there was the whole bowl of wrong CNN’s Dylan Byers just cooked up today in his column on the relationship between Joe Scarborough and Donald Trump for CNN Money. To review, Byers claims through his unnamed sources at 30 Rock that Scarborough’s cozy relationship with the GOP frontrunner is causing “increasing discomfort” over at MSNBC. One big nugget offered up by Byers’ reporting is that Scarborough has actually stayed at a Trump resort in Palm Beach, Florida during the Christmas and New Year’s holidays in the past. Talk about cheap, pointless and a clear need for a chiropractor given all that stretching on the writer’s part: Trump owns dozens of properties in cities and resort towns around the world. So is Byers actually insinuating that this revelation equals some kind of quid-pro-quo between Trump Continue reading "CNN’s Byers TMZ-Esque Report on Scarborough’s Trump Resort Stay Flimsy as it is Feeble (UPDATED)"
