Republican rivals launch effort to villainize Donald Trump

by Jonathan Swan  |  published on January 27, 2016

Republicans are testing out new lines of attack on Donald Trump meant to portray him as a ruthless dealmaker who sought to make money at any cost — even if he hurt working people in the process.

The attacks are meant to go after one of Trump’s greatest strengths: that he is a consummate business dealmaker who can bring those skills to the White House and better America’s position with the rest of the world.

Ted Cruz’s campaign has launched an ad that accused Trump of colluding with “Atlantic City insiders to bulldoze the home of an elderly widow for a limousine parking lot at his casino.” The elderly woman is shown on screen saying of Trump, “He doesn’t have no heart, that man.”

    This should tell us just stupid and ignorant the party is . Instead of attacking Democrats they are attacking one of their own. This also tells us they are afraid of Trump since he is not an establishment Republican and if he becomes president may create problems for some of these criminals.

    No surprise here, just politics as usual. Every election cycle we hear the same stuff and the media continues fanning the flames. No one should be surprised or offended by the rhetoric being thrown around by everyone involved. This is just the same crap being recycled, we’ve been listening to it for as long as I can remember.

    The RINOs are going after Trump because they fear he will upset their apple cart and show them for the lying, self serving, TRAITORS they are! Look at McConnell, We gave him the Senate with a mandate to straight it out and he conspires with the socialists just like Boehner did and Ryan has started! They haven’t learned anything yet, but we are coming for them just as we did Boehner! Trump and Cruz 2016!

    ‘JEALOUSY, night and day you torture me,’ should be the gop theme for this campaign! WHY can’t they see what they’re doing WRONG??
    In future, ALL politcal campaigns SHOULD be limited to 6 months, NOT a day, nor a minute, longer!
