Donald Trump Is Even More Of A Jerk Than You Thought He Was

Yahoo political reporter Chris Moody wrote a story this afternoon about Donald Trump withdrawing as host of the December 27th Newsmax debate.

Late this afternoon, Moody reported via Twitter that he had just received this from Trump, apparently via facsimile:

What a complete jerk.

On the other hand, as I said to him, Chris won the Internet today.

By the way, if you’re not already reading Chris’s work at The Ticket, you should be.

    It’s also funny as evidence that someone prints his web for him.

    Hehehehe…he used a fax.

    Sorry, Doug, but your headline is invalid.

    It is an impossibility for me to now think him more a jerk than I thought he was this morning, yesterday, last year, over the past ten years. My dictionary defines ‘Jerk’ as ‘Trump’.

    Maybe, but this article didn’t do that. I already knew he was that much of a jerk.

    Essentially, Trump narcissistic excuse for cancelling the debate is “I might still run for president!”
