I've about had a belly full of Donald Trump and would be more than happy to see his shelf life expire sometime in the near future (although I'm not counting on that happening any time soon), but the one thing I have enjoyed about this blowhard getting into the race is watching these guys eat their own.
It seems that Rand Paul was the latest victim of one of Trump's tirades on Twitter.
Donald Trump says has no worries about the next GOP presidential debate, although he expects his fellow candidates to come after him.
And one of those candidates, Rand Paul, found himself the target of Trump's latest Twitter salvo Saturday afternoon.
But Trump also told reporters he expects some of his opponents to go on the attack during the debate -- and used it as an opportunity to put some of them down."I'll be attacked," Trump said. "Somebody will attack, you know, somebody like a Rand Paul who's down at about 2%. ... He's been very nasty lately."Trump said Paul was nice to him until "all of a sudden about a week ago he starts attacking because his poll numbers are down." "He's a very ineffective guy," Trump said. "Rand is weak on immigration. He's weak on the military. He's got no chance; he's down so low with his polls, he's got no chance."Paul has long been referring to Trump as a "fake conservative" on the trail and said in Iowa this weekend that it's time to take Trump on, according to Radio Iowa.
There should be about five or six of them at least (although I wouldn't count on that either) that follow Texas wingnut Gov. Rick Perry's lead and drop out sometime in the very near future... and not because bully boy Donald Trump says so, but because they're nothing more than a bunch of grifters trying to raise their national profile, speaking fees and book revenues and have absolutely no interest in actually being President of the United States in the first place. The same could be said of some of these so-called "front runners" as well.
They've turned what used to be a serious endeavor into a national joke and a fundraising racket and made a complete mockery of what's left of our democracy, with a complicit media that's happy to play along as long as it means their ad revenues continue to rise.
Rand Paul was hoping to ride on his father's grifter coattails and turn running for President into a cash cow just like his daddy did, but it seems that's not working out so well for him.
If he gets the boot in Kentucky too, maybe he can go back to being an eye doctor and find a board to certify with that he didn't create himself.
