Don’t you just love it how celebrities, businessmen and politicians mingle to give us the media something to write about? Unfortunately for the electors, what Donald Trump and George Will have going on now is hard to call politics. With Donald Trump being called ‘bloviating ignoramus’ by George Will, this looks more like a verbal slapstick act.
Now, we all know that Donald Trump is one of the most popular men in the world, but it’s not a secret he’s not exactly the most pleasant person around. In fact, Donald Trump has been slammed more than on one occasion for his particular behavior. This time, it was conservative columnist George Will that slammed him down with quite an unusual term. Donald Trump was called a “bloviating ignoramus” by George Will.
George Will was on ABC’s “This Week” when he made the controversial comment. During the show, Will was asked about his point of view regarding his upcoming participation at Mitt Romney’s fundraiser, along with Donald Trump. His exact words were: “The cost of appearing with this bloviating ignoramus is obvious, it seems to me”.
Will continued his scrumptious statement with another controversy: “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”.
Now, don’t you just love it when political back talk gets all smart? George Will’s comments might be injurious, but in the end that’s politics: a dog-eat-dog-world where putting your opponent under fire is the norm.
Unfortunately for Donald Trump, his reaction was truly under the etiquette George Will imposed with his “bloviating ignoramus” comment. The businessman replied: “George Will may be the dumbest (and most overrated) political commentator of all time. If the Republicans listen to him, they will lose”.
You’d think this started with Will’s comments, but in fact it was Donald Trump who took the bear by the tooth. With all his status, he should have known better than to meet trouble halfway. In March, Trump referred to Will as a “totally overrated fool” and a “hack”.
The truth is that once all this fiasco will be done with, Mitt Romney should already have a plan to get rid of Donald Trump. He might be bringing in the cash, but with him on board, Romney’s chances to winning the elections are grim.
