Earlier today, nearly bankrupt former boxer, convicted felon and sex offender, Mike Tyson endorsed Donald Trump. Naturally. Who else would he endorse? Who else would accept his endorsement?
Ted Cruz’s vice-presidential pick Carly Fiorina on Friday slammed Donald Trump for boasting of a Mike Tyson endorsement this week.
The Republican presidential front-runner told supporters in Indiana on Wednesday that he had the support of the former world heavyweight champion.
“I love it. He sent out a tweet. Mike. Iron Mike,” Trump said. “You know, all the tough guys endorse me. I like that, OK?”
Many people, perhaps anyone with a bit of self-reflection, see it differently:
Fiorina, standing beside Cruz as the two took questions from the media in Indianapolis, said she was “interested to see” the endorsement and blasted the real-estate mogul for calling Tyson “tough,” referring to when the boxer was convicted of rape in the 1990s, in Indiana, no less.
“Sorry, I don’t consider a convicted rapist a tough guy,” Fiorina told reporters. “And I think it says a lot about Donald Trump’s campaign and his character that he is standing up and cheering for an endorsement by Mike Tyson.”
Enter the deranged Trump henchman Roger Stone. Stone is an erratic individual who is not only gullible and not terribly smart but he is the mastermind behind the campaign of threats against pro-America delegates to the GOP convention and is trying to set up violent street protests in Cleveland should Donald Trump not get the nomination.
Say what? Mike Tyson is not only a convicted rapist. His victim, former Miss Rhode Island Desiree Washington is black:
In fact, the only reason I can think of that would cause an alleged man to become upset that a woman did not admire a convicted rapist would be if she was hitting uncomfortably close to home with her critic. Or too close to his boss’ home
Conservative Indianapolis radio host Greg Garrison, who was the lead prosecutor in the rape case, lambasted Trump on Thursday.
“A tough one. Well, Mr. Trump, tough is one thing. A serial rapist is quite something else,” said Garrison, who recalled a series of harsh details in the case.
Garrison said the woman was “brutally, horribly raped,” remarking that Tyson “destroyed her life.”
In a February interview with NBC News in 1992, Trump defended Tyson, suggesting that the boxer “was railroaded in this case.”
“You have a young woman that was in his hotel room late in the evening at her own will,” he said then. “You have a young woman seen dancing for the beauty contest — dancing with a big smile on her face, looked happy as can be.”
What makes this hilarious rather than insulting, is that you’d have to really look hard to find anyone in politics today with more of a history of inarguably racist statements that Roger Stone… unless you were considering that other Donald Trump ally, David Duke. In fact, Stone was fired from CNN for making racist statements. Courtesy of Mediaite:
This is the type of pathetic pseudo-man Donald Trump attracts. Keep that in mind if you are still under the delusion that a vote for Donald Trump is for the lesser of two evils.
