Donald Trump: "Highly Overrated Pundit" Charles Krauthammer Is "A Loser"

|

On FOX & Friends this morning, presidential candidate Donald Trump responded to criticism from Charles Krauthammer and George Will on last night's Special Report panel.

Krauthammer said Trump is a candidate who should not be taken seriously.

"The mainstream media who wish the Republicans no good will lavish upon him enormous coverage," Krauthammer said.

"As far as Charles Krauthammer, I'm not a fan of his," Trump said on Wednesday. "I think he is a highly overrated pundit. He's wrong on so many things, including the Iraq war, I've just never been a fan and obviously he knows that and I guess he's not a fan of mine and that's okay. All I do is I speak the truth."

"When I watch a George Will or a Charles Krauthammer, you know, I've watched them for years, they're losers. They're just losers. They sit there, they haven't done anything," Trump added.

STEVE DOOCY: The media elites don't like you. I was listening to the radio on some channels, they don't like you. The [New York] Daily News put this cover out: 'Clown Runs For President.' And Charles Krauthammer had this to say about you last night. I want you to hear him and then he will hear from you.

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: I think it was great showmanship, his stream of consciousness. I think his single most important statement was, I am very rich. That's the basis for the campaign...

It will damage the party because like say an Al Sharpton or even a Ross Perot. Having those kind of people on stage who aren't really serious candidates diminishes the stature of the others who are.


DOOCY: According to Charles Krauthammer and a couple of media elites you are not a serious candidate.

DONALD TRUMP: Well, The New York Post gave me a front page cover that I wish you held up rather than the other one. The Daily News is going to be out of business very soon. It's doing no business whatsoever and they do that for circulation.

As far as Charles Krauthammer, I'm not a fan of his. I think he is a highly overrated pundit. He's wrong on so many things, including the Iraq war, I've just never been a fan and obviously he knows that and I guess he's not a fan of mine and that's okay. All I do is I speak the truth.

You've seen the polls and my polls were great before [I got in]. In New Hampshire I was number three and four and that was before I did this...

You know, when I watch a George Will or a Charles Krauthammer, you know, I've watched them for years, they're losers. They're just losers. They sit there, they haven't done anything.
