Charles Krauthammer On Donald Trump: 'A Campaign That’s Run On Know-nothing Xenophobia.'

Charles Krauthammer takes Donald Trump's announcement to join the 2016 presidential election to the woodshed.

Donald Trump likes Charles Krauthammer about as much as anyone would like a snake bite. He's called the conservative columnist many things including being an overrated clown and a dummy and on Fox News' Special Report, Krauthammer got to weigh in on Trump's crazy presidential announcement.

“It was stream of consciousness,” Krauthammer said, adding, “I think his single most important statement was ‘I am very rich.’”“But you know, look, you say, can you take him seriously? Can you really take seriously a candidate who says ‘Mexico is not our friend?’ ‘It is sending us immigrants who are criminals, drug dealers, and rapists,’” Krauthammer said, citing Trump’s speech.

Later in the show, Krauthammer dug a little deeper in his criticisms of the Donald.


But, his thesis is this, and I do think it has some resonance, all of our troubles are caused by Mexicans, Chinese, Japanese, Saudis, and others. I am going to extract tribute from all of them. He said, Entitlements? I won’t have to cut entitlements. The Chinese will fund our entitlements. How? I’m the right, I’m the author of ‘Art of The Deal.’ Trust me. I’ll make the deal. I’ll make the Mexicans pay for the wall. I’ll make the Saudis empty their treasury to support our infrastructure. Look, this is a campaign that’s run on know-nothing xenophobia.

Some of the fun of watching the GOP Clown Car in action is to see conservatives rip each other apart and these two will not disappoint.
