Paul Whacks Trump Back

February 14, 2011

Rep. Ron Paul struck back at real estate mogul Donald Trump during an interview Sunday on Fox & Friends Weekend. When asked by F&FW co-anchor Alisyn Camerota for a response to Trump’s scoffing, “Look, we all know Ron Paul can never win,” (Thursday at the Conservative Political Action Conference) ” Paul derisively laughed, “I don’t know whether anybody who’s never run a race or won a race is going to be the judge of whether or not an individual can win.*

GOP Presidential polemics: the fun has begun!

Fox & Friends Weekend – 02/13/11 (@ 9:05 a.m. ET)

*Camerota actually paraphrased Trump’s saying, “By the way, Ron Paul cannot get elected, I’m sorry to tell you….Honestly, he has just zero chance of getting elected. You have to win an election.”

Update: Ron Paul repeated his slam of Trump again today on American Morning in an interview with AM co-host Kiran Chetry. When Chetry asked Paul about Trump’s slam at CPAC, he replied, “I’ve won eleven times….I don’t know whether he has earned the right…to criticize somebody for not winning an election when I don’t know how many elections he’s won himself.” (Vid via Mediaite.)
