Ex-McCain aide: ‘Assh*le’ Trump might literally go insane when he starts losing to Hillary

Published

on

A former top aide to John McCain’s unsuccessful presidential campaign said Donald Trump is so temperamentally unsuited for the presidency that even campaigning for the job could drive him insane.

Mark Salter, who worked for the Arizona senator’s 2008 campaign and co-authored his books, discussed his intense dislike of Trump during an interview with Politico.

“He’s just an assh*le,” Salter said. “I mean, you don’t want a guy like that for a neighbor, for a friend, for a member of your church, for a colleague, for a boss. You wouldn’t want — really, you wouldn’t — you know, if he had a flat tire, you wouldn’t pull over and offer to help.”

Salter pointed to Trump’s comparison of trying to avoid venereal disease 1980s to the Vietnam War as an indicator of his character.

“It just shows you what a vainglorious, foolish, ignorant, low-character, bum of a guy Trump is,” he said.

Salter said he’s confident Trump will lose badly, obviously and early — and he said that realization will psychologically destroy him.

“He’s going to lose, and I think he’s got kind of an unstable personality to begin with,” he said.

“I think he could come apart, you know, in some kind of visible way,” Salter continued. “I think that’s quite possible. I’m not a psychiatrist, but there is something wrong with [the] guy.”

Salter, who is backing Hillary Clinton in the 2016 campaign, admits to his own role helping voters accept a candidate so plainly unqualified for the office he seeks by rushing the vetting process and selecting Sarah Palin as McCain’s running mate.

He seconded the last-minute decision to add Palin to the ticket, which he agrees might have opened the door for Trump.

“Maybe,” Salter said. “Maybe a little.”

Stephen Colbert rips ‘idiot’ GOP senator for defending Trump’s unconstitutional self-dealing

Published

on

"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert returned from New Zealand for a new show that aired Monday evening.

"I have been as far from the insatiable black hole of news that is Donald Trump as you can get on this planet.

I've heard there have been some developments over the last 10 days that did not go well for Donnie,"

The host ripped Trump's 71-minute press conference.

"Seventy-one minutes is not a press conference, it's a one man show," he explained. "If you liked 'Fleabag,' you'll love Donald Trump in 'Douchebag,'" he said.

Some of the most powerful Texas House Republicans said Monday they no longer support GOP Speaker Dennis Bonnen, marking the biggest blow yet to his political future amid the fallout from a secret recording released last week by a hardline conservative activist.

Five Republicans considered senior members of the lower chamber issued a statement withdrawing support for him: State Reps. Four Price of Amarillo, Dan Huberty of Houston, Lyle Larson of San Antonio, Chris Paddie of Marshall and John Frullo of Lubbock.

Donald Trump is making a mockery of Marco Rubio — and the Florida senator is letting him

Published

on

Sen. Marco Rubio was once one of Donald Trump’s most formidable opponents; now, the Florida senator bends over backward to excuse the president’s corruption.

In 2016, Rubio and Trump sparred frequently on the Republican primary debate stage. Trump picked the uninspired nickname “Little Marco” for the senator, which didn’t seem to do much damage on its own, but Rubio never gained the momentum or strength that his backers hoped would prove to be strong enough to take down the reality TV candidate. As Rubio grew desperate, he launched one of his most memorable and pitiful attacks by stooping to his opponent’s level, implying that Trump had a small penis. It was more of an embarrassing moment for Rubio than anyone else, though Trump helped himself with a crude rejoinder.
