It’s a perfect metaphor for the whole primary season. Facts, logic, and reason vs. . . . a totally uninformed voter. You know those yutzes who Jimmy Kimmel talks to on Hollywood Boulevard — the ones who know who Snooki is, but can’t name the vice-president, or any two of the three branches of government? This Trumpkin makes those people look like a cross between Stephen Hawking and that guy who can solve the Rubik’s Cube in 12 seconds while holding it above his head.
It’s a long clip, but I’ll summarize and paraphrase it:
TRUMPKIN: What you gonna do about our Second Amendment!
CRUZ: I have fought for the Second Amendment and other constitutional rights my whole life, while Trump says he hates guns and will put a leftist on the Supreme Court.
TRUMPKIN: Lyin’ Ted! He has a mistress! Trump gonna build a wall!
Do not accuse me of exaggerating until you have seen the whole thing.
UPDATE: Whoops. Dana already posted about this. Well, now you get to see what we both said about it. But comment on her post.
