Donald Trump has hit back at fellow Republicans fed up with his behaviour in a fiery speech on Tuesday in which he revealed a rival presidential candidate’s cell phone number.
Floods of Trump supporters jammed the phone line of 2016 Republican presidential hopeful senator Lindsey Graham, who recently called Trump a “jackass” in an ongoing feud between the two rivals.
Trump is now at odds with much of the Republican establishment after a series of incendiary comments, topped by his recent mocking of senator John McCain’s experience as a tortured prisoner of war in Vietnam.
The real estate developer and reality TV host has since intensified his criticism of McCain and his record on veterans issues in the US Senate, even as politicians from both parties and veterans groups have rushed to his defence.
Completely off the rails while being a godsend for non-republicans, for a while at least, the court jester is making a mockery of everything Republican while the media sops that up, no one is tackling the real issues, my how convenient.
