When Donald Trump isn’t suing HBO host Bill Maher for claiming he is the offspring of a human and orangutan, he is busy attacking fellow Republicans like Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal.

The billionaire real estate mogul, failed presidential contender and Obama birth certificate conspiracy fanatic said on Fox & Friends that Jindal was “stupid” for calling Republicans “the stupid party” at the Republican National Committee’s winter meeting last month.

“I think he was stupid for using that term because that term is so obnoxious and so good for the other side,” said Trump, who went on to say that while he speaks ill of Republican negotiating abilities, he would never use the term “stupid” to describe the GOP.  “You don’t use the word stupid…frankly I think it was a stupid thing for him to say.”

Except “stupid” is exactly what Trump called Republicans in a 2011 video message, saying “the Democrats are laughing at the stupidity of the Republicans and the Paul Ryan plan.” Later in the video, Trump said “ultimately I don’t want to battle against the Republicans’ stupidity, because it’s stupidity the things they are doing.”

The totally needless killing of 19 school children and two teachers in the latest school shooting shows once again that we're a nation on the verge of total disaster.

Never hesitant to nail hypocritical Republicans, Jimmy Kimmel began his show without an audience on Wednesday and delivered a poignant monologue about the massacre at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas that left 19 children and two teachers dead. Kimmel blasted feckless Republicans by noting most Americans support common-sense gun laws, but the legislation stalls “because our cowardly leaders just aren’t listening to us ― they’re listening to the NRA.”
