Even Karl Rove Can't Stomach Donald Trump's Tasteless Foray Into GOP Politics

I reported Saturday that Donald Trump would be moderating a GOP debate later this month and that Ron Paul announced he'd be skipping the farce. Looks like Ron Paul is once again vindicated by the actions of other GOP leaders who are imitating and following him. I am entirely pleased to report that even Karl Rove can't stomach the idea of Donald Trump's wildly inappropriate attempt to be a GOP kingmaker, an attempt that is turning the entire process into an even bigger circus than it already is.

The Hill reports:

Veteran GOP strategist Karl Rove said Monday that the head of the Republican National Committee (RNC) should step in to "discourage" presidential candidates from attending the upcoming debate moderated by Donald Trump.

"Here's a guy who is saying, 'I'm going to endorse one of you,' " Rove said, criticizing the choice on "Fox & Friends."

"More importantly, what the heck are the Republican candidates doing showing up at a debate [whose moderator] says, 'I may run for president next year as an Independent'? I think the Republican National [Committee] chairman [Reince Priebus] should step in and say, 'We strongly discourage every candidate from appearing in a debate moderated by somebody who's gonna run for president,' " he said.

Hat tip: Memeorandum.
