Trump Is ‘Completely Uneducated About

During the segment, Todd played for Mitchell an audio clip from Trump’s interview with the board during which Trump was asked about his opinions regarding using nukes against the Islamic State. Instead of answering the question directly, Trump began talking about how he responded to his political rivals’ attacks against himself before concluding with, “This is a very good looking group of people here. Could I just go around so I know who the hell I’m talking to?”

“He cannot stick to a subject. It is remarkable,” Mitchell told Todd. “And when he doesn’t know something, he just changes the subject, makes it all about himself.”

“On national security it’s a very noticeable — especially to your ears and mine,” Todd responded.

Mitchell then went on to discuss how she perceives Trump’s policies.

“[Trump] would cancel defense treaties with Japan and South Korea against North Korea. He doesn’t mind, he would be okay if Japan and South Korea go nuclear. American policy for decades since World War II has been trying to keep nukes out of that arena,” Mitchell said. “He is completely all over the lot on Iran. He believes — he complained that Iran isn’t buying our planes. It had to be pointed out to him that Iran is still under sanctions and cannot buy American planes. He thinks North Korea and Iran are the biggest trading partners when North Korea’s biggest trading partner is China.”

Mitchell then concluded her rant with a harsh verdict against the Republican presidential frontunner: “He is completely uneducated about any part of the world.”

‘Your Name Was in That Story’- Radio Host Goes After Trump Spokeswoman


Radio host Ben Ferguson engaged in a heated debate Monday with Donald Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson over recent attacks launched on Heidi Cruz and a salacious National Enquirer story alleging Ted Cruz had multiple extramarital affairs.

“Let’s be clear about this,” Ferguson said, discussing an anti-Trump PAC’s $300 Instagram campaign featuring a nude GQ photo of Melania Trump under bright warehouse lighting. “You have Donald Trump’s campaign saying that Ted Cruz bought a picture from GQ. … And saying they then handed it to a super PAC.”

Ferguson, who has endorsed Cruz, said there are “no facts that back up that any picture was bought” and called the allegation a “pathological lie by Donald Trump’s campaign.”

Pierson shifted the discussion away from the ad, contending Cruz alleged Trump was behind the recent National Enquirer story. A story in The Daily Beast suggested the rumors had actually sprung from Sen. Marco Rubio’s (R-Fla.) campaign.

“Where are your facts there?” she challenged Ferguson.

“Katrina, I don’t know why you don’t have any scruples to these types of stories. Your name was in that story. The fact that you’re willing to use this to the advantage of your campaign and put your own name through the mud — which you have also said, this story is factually incorrect. This is the trashiest thing, I’ve seen,” Ferguson said.

“With regards to me,” Pierson fired back. “With regards to me.”

Ferguson alleged that Pierson’s name was in the story “to make it look like somehow Donald Trump campaign was not connected to this.”

“You guys are connected,” he said.

Pierson said she was named in the story as a mistress of Cruz because “the establishment” doesn’t want her campaigning for Trump.
