Donald Trump Calls George Will The ‘Dumbest Political Commentator Of All Time’

Donald Trump took to Twitter Sunday evening to lash back at George Will after the conservative columnist labeled him a “bloviating ignoramus.”

It was a response to Will’s remark earlier that morning on ABC’s “This Week” that he’s baffled Mitt Romney would want to align himself with Trump.

“I do not understand the cost-benefit here,” Will said. “The costs are clear. The benefits – what voter is going to vote for him because he’s seen with Donald Trump? The cost of appearing with this bloviating ignoramus is obvious, it seems to me. Donald Trump is redundant evidence that if your net worth is high enough, your IQ can be very low and you can still intrude into American politics.”
