Dear Commons Community,
The Crazy Donald released an angry statement yesterday decrying a number of Republican figures for being disloyal to him and called on Fox News to ditch longtime contributor Karl Rove, who he labeled a “RINO” and a “pompous fool.”
Trump was apparently triggered by a Wall Street Journal column in which Rove criticized the former president’s CPAC speech as “divisive, controversial and embittered.”
“There was no forward-looking agenda,” the longtime GOP strategist wrote. “Simply a recitation of his greatest hits.”
Rove dismissed Trump’s gripe in a statement to Reuters.
“I’ve been called a lot of things in my career, but never a RINO,” Rove said. “I’ll continue to use my whiteboard and voice to call balls and strikes.”
Trump has a long history of attempting to cancel people and companies that have triggered him, from the NFL to HBO to the Macy’s department store.
How pathetic is Trump?
