Donald Trump, who has probably never shied away from a media-driven confrontation, took to Twitter to respond to George Will’s criticism that he was a “bloviating ignoramus.” The billionaire businessman blasted Will on Sunday, tweeting that he “may be the dumbest (and most overrated) political commentator of all time. If the Republicans listen to him, they will lose.”
The insults began when Will questioned Mitt Romney’s decision to appear at a campaign fundraiser with Trump on Sunday’s “This Week With George Stephanopoulos.” —TEB
ABC News’ Will on Sunday blasted Trump during an appearance on “This Week” as he questioned why Mitt Romney would host a fundraising event with someone who continues to give credibility to birtherism.
“I do not understand the cost benefit here,” Will said. “The costs are clear. The benefit — what voter is going to vote for him because he is seen with Donald Trump? The cost of appearing with this bloviating ignoramus is obvious, it seems to me. Donald Trump is redundant evidence that if your net worth is high enough, your IQ can be very low and you can still intrude into American politics.”
