Donald Trump has doubled down on his birtherism of late. Just as Mitt Romney is about to clinch the Republican nomination – and on the same night that Romney will be fundraising with Trump in Las Vegas. But that’s no biggie to four out of five co-hosts of The Five. It was barely worth a thought. In fact, if it weren’t so disturbing watching them fall all over themselves thinking of ways to praise Trump without endorsing his birtherism, you might be doubled over in laughter listening to them gush about his “pizzazz” that nonetheless “connects with the modern man.”
Brian Kilmeade said Trump “brings a lot of power, a lot of prestige, a lot of pizazz with a great delivery … He’s an American icon!”
Eric Bolling said Trump “represents a new Republican, a new GOP, a new conservative, where it’s not the old, established, George Will, boring-out-of-your mind, bored-out-of-your-mind listening to him in Washington. He wakes people up.”
Andrea Tantaros said that despite being a multi-millionaire, Trump “doesn’t come off as snobby. He connects with the modern man.”
Brian Kilmeade agreed, saying that he treats everybody “the same way. “He’s a blue collar guy who became a billionaire … He has a blue collar approach to life.”
Of course, Trump was never a blue collar guy but someone who inherited wealth. But why quibble about facts?
By the way, the Obama campaign has a powerful new ad out about Romney’s association with Trump.
