Donald Trump Booed At CPAC For 'Boots On The Ground' Against ISIS

Donald Trump was not received as well as he hoped at CPAC 2015.

Donald Trump must have thought whatever he said at the wingnut jubilee known as CPAC would go over big time since he's marginalized himself with Birther type nonsense as a legitimate republican candidate for the presidency.

"Hey look, [the president] wrote a book when he was a young man and it said ‘born in Kenya,’ blah blah blah. I don’t know where he was born. I would like to see his college records, I think that’s important.

Whether or not that was a real certificate, because a lot of people question it, I certainly question it—but Hillary Clinton wanted it, McCain wanted it, and I wanted it. He didn’t do it for them, he did it for me. So in one sense I’m proud of it. Now all we have to do is find out whether or not it’s real.”

In the same question and answer period with Sean Hannity, he embarrassed himself yet again when he outlined his strategy to fight ISIS, which was nothing more than "he'd hit them really hard." With what? We don't know, but when he supported sending ground troops against ISIS, the crowd turned on him.

Hannity: A, to stop Iran's nuclear program and B, to defeat ISIS, cause I don't hear say degrade them, I hear you say defeat them.

Trump: Defeat. Well, with ISIS, I'd just hit them really hard and that would probably and a year ago you wouldn't have said it and nobody wouldn't have likes it, you may have to have some boots on the ground for a period of time until you're rid of the cancer. (boos) That's number one, you may have to have it Look, they're cutting off the heads of people, they're burning at the stake, It's like we're living in medieval times.

That was surprising to me that many CPACers are against sending in ground troops to fight ISIS since cable news has been nothing more than "war porn."
