Harry Reid is retiring from the Senate after this term and boy, does it show. This morning on the US Senate floor, the Senate Minority Leader wasted no words lambasting Donald Trump.

His impetus was the Newsweek bombshell from yesterday, which revealed that Trump has international business ties from which he cannot easily extract himself. As President, Trump (and his family) would have to either divorce themselves from the Trump company or face serious conflicts of interest in foreign policy decisions.

But that wasn't Harry Reid's focus. Harry Reid wanted to be on the record as saying this:

Let's be clear about Donald Trump. He's a spoiled brat, raised in plenty, who inherited a fortune, used his money to make more money, and he did a lot of it by swindling working men and women. ...Why would he change as president? The answer is simple. Trump won't change. He is asking us to let him get rich scamming America.

You go, Harry Reid!
