In Donald Trump's own words:

"...those who support Ben Carson are "stupid" to believe the "crap" that is his life story.."

Interesting how Trump supporters haven't, as far as I know, claimed Trump is trying to "destroy" Carson by talking about something that happened years ago -- that's what Carson supporters have said about others who have examined the claims that Carson has made about his early years. 

And here we have one of the T-GOP's heroes trashing Carson and calling his supporters STUPID!

T-GOPers eating their own

And then the Trumpster insulted Carson further:

"Toward the end of his wide-ranging complaints about the country and competition, Trump mocked Carson's narrative about his violent temper as a youth that was calmed only when he prayed to God and asked for deliverance, an event that Carson describes as a miracle.

That story of redemption has underpinned much of Carson's support in the Hawkeye State. At one point, Trump walked away from the podium and flipped his belt buckle up and down to ridicule what Carson has described as a key event in his life: that Carson, as a boy, once tried but failed to stab someone only to have the knife broken by a belt buckle."

Trump says Carson has a "pathological disease" then compares him to a child molester:

Trump said Carson has a "pathological disease" with no cure, comparing it to the incurable mental conditions of child molesters. 

 "A child molester, there's no cure for that," Trump said. "If you're a child molester, there's no cure. They can't stop you. Pathological? There's no cure."

Would Carson supporters accept this sort of slander and smearing from a Democratic candidate?

Another question:  Do Trump's supporters still think this maniac will make America great again, when he can't control his 2-year old temper tantrums?

"...those who support Ben Carson are "stupid" to believe the "crap" that is his life story.."

If a "libtard"/Democrat had spoken those words, the rabid righties would choke on their spittle as they condemned the racists who dared say such a thing! And yet the people who love Trump and Carson are eerily silent on Trump's insulting and degrading words that essentially call Carson a LIAR. He's going for Carson's jugular and Trump doesn't care what Carson's supporters think of him.

No one could have written a more splendid script on the crazies in the modern Republican Party. Trump has gone after their favorite "Some of my best friends are Negroes, so we can't be racist" candidate. This is fascinating stuff.

Trump would prefer we scrutinize Ben Carson over some stupid , minor BS so we won't look at how awful he really is.

I don't recall an FBI investigation over the way Carson described a scholarship offer but it is true that the FBI investigated Carson's bff who was convicted of fraud and who Carson said he loves and trusts more than anyone except his wife of 32 years!

the Trumpkin says....

"You know, it really doesn`t matter what [the media] write as long as you`ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass." –Donald Trump

"All of the women on 'The Apprentice' flirted with me -- consciously or unconsciously. That's to be expected." –Donald Trump

"I don't think Ivanka would do that, although she does have a very nice figure. I've said if Ivanka weren't my daughter, perhaps I'd be dating her." –Donald Trump, when asked how he would react if Ivanka posed for Playboy

"She really has become a monster ... I mean monster in the most positive way." –Donald Trump, on his pregnant wife Melania

"You know the funny thing, I don't get along with rich people. I get along with the middle class and the poor people better than I get along with the rich people." –Donald Trump

"My fingers are long and beautiful, as, it has been well been documented, are various other parts of my body." –Donald Trump

"I'm not a schmuck. Even if the world goes to hell in a handbasket, I won't lose a penny." –Donald Trump

"Let me tell you, I'm a really smart guy." –Donald Trump, on his intelligence

"The beauty of me is that I'm very rich." –Donald Trump

......and THIS is a Presidential candidate???? Carson is a joke....and possibly a social idiot....Trumpkin is dangerous

Any chance Dr. Ben might pull a knife on The Donald in the next debate? Be good for ratings.

Dave Miller said...

His recent in Iowa, a 90 minute tour de force of insults, untruths and incoherency, may go down as the end of his campaign.

And it will probably be the start of a wildly successful book tour when he writes about his few months on the campaign trail.

My first question is this... How will Donald trump be able to stay in the race when his poll numbers begin to tank and an inglorious defeat looms? Will his ego be able to handle it?

My second is when can we expect more from the feeble group of GOP wannabes and have them stand up and loudly proclaim "Donald Trump does not represent the GOP?"

Rational Nation USA said...

Longing for a GOP kumbaya session Shaw? :-)

Those folks sure are making it easy to not take them very seriously. Their interests really do align with the nation's long term rational self interests.

The decline of a once respected and effective party is at hand. SAD to witness.

Shaw Kenawe said...

It appears that Trump does represent the Republican Party. The more he acts like a loud mouth bully and insulting jerk, the more the TGOP loves him. His latest slobbering iWATB performance will only confirm to his followers that he's just the sort of person they want to represent America. Happily rational sane people do not.

Either Trump really is smart or just like Inspector whatshisname form The Pink Panther. So dumb things fall his way.
Look at history. Bush/Cheney got us a war in Iraq based on lies and bullshit by using fear and intimidation of any who questioned it. Democrats and republicans lined up, including Hillary, to support it. They all made speeches and puffed up their chests rather than look at facts and risk the wrath of the republican attack machine. Just like then, what republican would dare challenge the tough talking, send em back to Mexico, bomb shit out of isis oil fields Trump? They know they'd be punished. Kasich questioned Trump in the debate on the plan to round up undocumented people and he has virtually eliminated himself if republican polls and focus groups are to be believed from any chance at all.
As I've said all along and Donald, and the rest of them, agree, facts don't matter. There is no room for compassion and empathy in the republican party. Donald is just doing the best job putting this to work. Political genius.

Ducky's here said...

The Flim Flam Man or an idiot savant who thinks Joseph built the pyramids as grain silos.
Those are today's Teabag front runners.

To say they are going to disappear doesn't take into account that they've survived this long.

Kevin Robbins may have hit on the eventual resolution.

what RN said about the Republican spot on. I often disagreed with much Republican politics....but never before has that party stooped to such rampant idiocy. Case in point....deregulation of environmental protections because they impede business. Forty years ago pollution was was destroying lives...AND was much more expensive to clean up afterwards. Once upon a time we had a Congressman in our district...a Republican..that I heartily supported. William A Steiger. He was co-authors of the Williams Steiger Act which established OSHA. "The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, also known as the Williams-Steiger Act in honor of the two men who pressed so hard for its passage.

The Act established three permanent agencies:
the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) within the Labor Department to set and enforce workplace safety and health standards;
the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) in what was then the Department of Health, Education and Welfare to conduct research on occupational safety and health; and
the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission (OSHRC), an independent agency to adjudicate enforcement actions challenged by employers.
He also sponsored legislation reducing the capital gains tax,and securing environmental protection for the Great Lakes. The bills he authored on these topics include the Williams-Steiger Bill establishing OSHA in 1970, the Clear Lakes Bill establishing environmental protection for the Great Lakes, the Older Americans Act of 1965, the Elementary and Secondary School Act, the Manpower Act, and the Steiger Amendment of 1978 reducing the capital gains tax.

He lived only blocks off night,on impulse, I knocked on his door, told him I supported his Great Lakes initiatives. He asked me in for coffee. Now....I did not always agree with every he supported....but he was decent,honest and a politician that listened,acted,spoke as a human. Oh, we have ....well, no one in the Republican Party like him.

PM Carpenter on Trump's amazingly incoherent and insulting rant:

"Dear Jeb:(

This is shock and awe, all in one "speech":

He would "bomb the shit" out of ISIS.

The "geniuses at Harvard" have endorsed his Gestapolike deportation plan.

One potential opponent is playing the "woman's card"; a very real opponent is "weak like a baby."

Another opponent (whom he recently "wished well" and now compares to a "child molester") is "pathological" and "damaged" — and leading in Iowa.

Which caused the shock-and-awer to ask, "How stupid are the people of Iowa?"

He promised to be a "unifier."

Reports the Washington Post: "As Trump skewered Carson in deeply personal language, a sense of discomfort settled on the crowd of roughly 1,500. Several people shook their heads or whispered to their neighbors."

Still, he shocked and awed them, all right.

If Trump fails to plunge in the polls after this "95-minute rant," then Jeb:( and the GOP establishment might as well go home, and stay there."

Shaw, have you seen this? Carson keeps embarrassing himself:

"Ex-CIA Director Responds to Carson: No, the Chinese aren't in Syria."

Gen Michael Hayden, former director of the CIA and National Security Agency, on Friday morning said that Dr. Ben Carson has made a serious effort to wrap his head around foreign policy issues since the retired neurosurgeon didn't have an "understanding" of the issues in the past. What you see publicly is what you get personally: A well-meaning serious bright many trying to understand things which his life experience really hasn't given him understanding about in the past."

The TPers constantly criticize Obama for his foreign policies, but they're willing to put a rank amateur in the Oval Office? More proof of their total idiocy and hypocrisy. What is wrong with these people?

"Kevin Drum called...Trump['s] speech "a 95-minute meltdown." It's true that when you watch the snippet of Trump fooling around with his belt to cast further doubt on Ben Carson's stabbing story (those last 15 words standing as a lasting tribute to the 2016 GOP presidential primary), it does give you pause. But more than anything, the Trump schtick -- I'm a winner and I can make you a winner again! -- doesn't resonate the same way when Trump himself is losing to a Mr. Magoo like Carson. That's just a hard sell, even for the "stupid" people of Iowa." --Josh Marshall
