I guess he thought he was being cute or something.

On Greta Van Susteren's show yesterday, the one and only Donald Rumsfeld came out with his endorsement of Donald Trump, saying the decision "wasn't even close."

"The way I think of it is this," Rumsfeld said, as he endorsed the fascist, "On the Democrats' side, we have a known known. On the Republican side, we have a recent entry, who's a known unknown."

Well, that makes just about as much sense as his remarks about Saddam Hussein back in the day.

You might remember them.

"There are known knowns; there are things we know we know," Rumsfeld mused in February, 2002.

"We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say, we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns — the ones we don't know we don't know."

Here's my known known: Rumsfeld is a liar, and liars stick together, especially if there's a prospect of some profit for Rumsfeld in the end.
