Daily Trump Dump 02/26/16

THE BIG STORY: After suffering though the Cuban double team at Thursday’s debate in Houston, Trump rebounded with a big endorsement from Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ), who made the announcement in Fort Worth. If you hate yourself, here it is

One has to wonder if the Governor’s good friend, Jerry Jones, paid for that plane ride to Texas. It remains to be seen what the price was for this particular political prize, but, imagine this: Supreme Court Justice Chris Christie. Man, those hearings will be SPECTACULAR!

Christie’s was only the second most disturbing endorsement of Trump this week

But, Cruzer and Rubes went hard after Trump at the debate, landing shots on his tax returns and employment of illegal aliens (extra points for Rubio, who smeared helpless Poles instead of Hispanics). It remains to be seen if their attacks will bear fruit, but, a lot of pundits say they should have been teaming up on DT for a while now.

Rubes and Trump continued to go after each other on Friday with Trump beating a long-dead horse and Marco firing back about DT’s “wet pants”. Donald then used the twitter

Rubes then tried and failed to make fun of Trump’s spelling expertise

Lincoln and Douglas are weeping in their graves

Back to the tax return issue: DT claims he hasn’t released tax returns because he’s being audited and he’s being audited because he’s a Christian. PS: His excuse for not releasing the tax returns is BS

Trump University was a massive scam

But an investigation by Mr. Schneiderman’s office found that Mr. Trump had little to do with picking instructors at the seminars or developing the curriculums for the seminars, which were run largely by people with motivational speaking backgrounds who were compensated based on how many people they persuaded to buy additional seminars. One of them was a manager at Buffalo Wild Wings

He never really cares about what he puts his name on, which makes me wonder if Trump Vodka caused blindness in 4 out of 5 alcoholics. Maybe if you got drunk off of it, you wandered around screaming obscenities and calling people “losers” and “dopey”

Hey! Was that vodka made by undocumented Polish workers? Somebody check on that

The Trump vs. Vicente Fox feud escalated. The former Mexican president dropped the “f bomb” when talking about Trump’s proposed wall on Thursday. DT was offended

So, Fox Business gave Fox an opportunity to apologize on Friday. And…

Well, he certainly passes The Donald’s “politically incorrect” test

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC): My party has gone batshit crazy

In no-holds-barred remarks at a celebratory dinner Thursday night, the South Carolina senator and unsuccessful presidential candidate said the GOP has lost all semblance of sanity and predicted the party will suffer irrevocable losses in November if it backs Trump.

Graham said the GOP has its best chance in years to win as Democrats are likely to nominate Hillary Clinton, who has been damaged by questions about her trustworthiness. But his party is about to blow it, he said.

“The most dishonest person in America is a woman, who’s about to become president. How could that be? My party has gone batshit crazy,” Graham said.

But, Senator Graham also used his wicked sense of humor

In closing, Graham declared himself the Dr. Jack Kevorkian of the GOP presidential campaign, referring to the euthanasia activist who died in 2011. Graham’s own presidential bid faltered, and he had to drop out. He endorsed Jeb Bush, who subsequently quit.

Graham then pulled out a white baseball cap emblazoned with Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan and endorsed the New Yorker.

“I endorse Donald Trump and hope the Graham magic still exists,” he said

After previously declaring war on Apple and Ford, Trump went after Amazon on Friday

“I have respect for Jeff Bezos, but he bought The Washington Post to have political influence, and I gotta tell you, we have a different country than we used to have,” Trump said. “He owns Amazon. He wants political influence so that Amazon will benefit from it. That’s not right. And believe me, if I become president, oh, do they have problems. They’re going to have such problems.”

Just close your eyes for a moment and imagine that Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) back in 2008 had said, “When I get in office, Wal-Mart (or General Motors or United Healthcare of YUM! Brands) will have a lot of problems! Boy, will they have problems!”. Rush Limbaugh’s head would’ve exploded. Every server Drudge had would have melted down. Roger Ailes might have stroked out

So, maybe the fallout wouldn’t have been that terrible
