More Republican Infighting: Malkin v. Trump
By Tim Peacock
The Republican party seems to be going from conservative bubble to conservative island – and on this island, the natives are definitely restless. This week Donald Trump and Michelle Malkin (of Twitchy infamy) have been trading barbs back and forth on Twitter – and the fight seems to be devolving into a schoolyard brawl replete with snarky, childish insults.
The fight actually began last year
(October to be exact) when Trump made an off color remark about Malkin after she made fun of his failed “Obama bombshell” that was supposed to bring down the Obama campaign. He said, “How does @michellemalkin
get a conservative platform? She is a dummy–just look at her past.” Malkin – not to let sleeping dogs lie – rapid-fire tweeted back a deluge of insults.
Fast forward to this tweet sent yesterday:
Which of course, led to Malkin’s attack on the tweets from last year:
Some of the sideline responses from conservatives on either side of the brawl are even more hilarious. I fully expect to see someone’s undergarments raised from a flagpole soon – or at very least a cafeteria food fight. Grab a seat folks, the fallout from November is still rippling through the conservative community, and we all have front row seats to the show.
