Trump: Karl Rove a ‘Totally Incompetent Jerk’

Monday night at American Airlines Center in Dallas, Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump attacked Republican political consultant and former George W. Bush adviser Karl Rove, calling him a “total incompetent jerk.”

Trump said, “OK, so George Will is a disaster. Honestly, another one, Karl Rove. He’s terrible. He’s terrible. He’s terrible. He still thinks that Mitt Romney won. He’s still going around saying, I think he won. This guy—think of this—he ought to be on Wall Street. He raises money pretty well. The last cycle, the last presidential election, he raised $434 million and didn’t win one race. Can you believe that? Can you believe it?”

He continued, “But you look at some of these guys and they are like boilers, okay—real estate—they are like boilers. Bill O’Reilly said the other night, Bill O’Reilly is a great guy, good guy, great guy. Although he’s tough and he’s tough with me, that I can tell you. Some people say, how can you say he’s a great guy, but he’s fair. But I saw Karl Rove on a show the other night and the name Trump came up and you could see it was like a boiler ready to explode. I think the guy is a total incompetent jerk, but him and there are others. But I would say this, anybody that gives him, Karl Rove and others the group of losers, anybody that gives them money, you’re losers yourself, doesn’t make sense because they don’t know what they are doing.”
