Donald Trump was warming up for the debate on Saturday in the key South Carolina primary — by trash talking the other Republican candidates on Friday.

Trump spewed out a series of tweets against various rivals. The most notable target was his chief opponent in this Southern primary, Ted Cruz. Trump carried out a full-on assault against Cruz’s credentials for religious voters:

And then he went back to the well of birtherism, with a direct threat to his Canadian-born foe:

On Jeb Bush:

And here’s a twofer about both Bush and Marco Rubio:

    • Yes, it really is puzzling that there are so many totally clueless Americans that will not only overlook, but are actually willing to accept, and in many cases even approve of, Trump’s hateful speech and outright lies.

      • The people follow him just like they do all the reality TV stars. We are dumbing down our country to a point that you can sell them anything. This is one you can blame on the media. This is something that has been many years in the making, over half a century. All you need to do is look at the history of advertising. We have come to the point that you can sell anything if you do it right, even Trump.

        • Excuse me while I sit back, drink my Crystal Pepsi, listen to my Zune, and look at things through my Google Glass. I don’t think Trump is as sellable as the media, Trump himself, and our terrified overactive minds think he is.
          I am pondering who on earth a “President Trump” would nominate to be a Supreme, replacing Scalia. My husband thinks he would nominate the Tundra Tart. I’m thinking he would do an Apprentice style elimination in which Ted Nugent is the choice.

          • He would for sure make a TV show out of it. he could do a survivor style show on C-Span. He would charge the networks to broadcast the state of the union speech.

      • When did it all start? Simon Cowell on American Idol? Rush Limbaugh? Fox News?Before that? What were the influences that changed our American society to be so … Nasty and vulgar? I know it has changed me. Grrrrrr.

  1. Trump is correct about Cruz’s qualifications to be president. The term “natural born citizen” means within the United States, Read the Constitution. Why else would it have the proviso which states::”or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”

    It seems obvious that no one would initially elected president after the adoption of the constitution would be eligible for president as being born within the US as a Natural Born citizen of the US unless this additional clause was inserted. That is why Citizen, and resident of the US for 14 years appears, Otherwise, no one would be eligible to serve until a child born in the US attained 35 years of age.

  2. Trump: Sue everyone on the planet and get it over with. You are an embarrassment. Thanks for bringing reality tv to US politics. NOT!

  3. Trump and others who want to sue Cruz, if they can do it now, will be doing a big favor to Cruz and the entire GOP. Just imagine if, god forbid, Cruz is elected and be sued (which is most likely), what an embarrassment will bring to Cruz and his party after wasting money and energy on this very bitter battle, as the outcome of the lawsuit is anyone’s guess.

  4. Donald, Cruz as a liar and a chest is saving his last act for his last dying breath…a confession of faith like the thief on the cross that gets you into heaven just under the wire

  5. Well done, Trump! You’re playing the role to perfection of being the poster-boy of how demented and psychotic any party that espouses an extremist point of view can be, and is.
    Also, your ability to lure gullible and hapless souls in America into the GOP lair of “Odd Balls/Lunatics/Conspiracists” is outstanding and uncanny.
    (If WC Fields were alive, he would be taking notes—with the help of dozens of stenographers, of course).

    Keep up the good work, and don’t forget to write!!! Thanks pal.

  6. That’s all the GOP needed was for Trump to enter the fray. With the tea party nightmares and all, they really are scratching their heads now. No, they are suffering from what appears to be alopecia.

  7. Loving.
    Every.
    Minute.

    The GOP is so screwed come November.

    I’ll be here to receive the tears of the Republican wingnuts that post here.
    They feed me.
