CPAC speaker Donald Trump: Ashley Judd is ‘going to be a great candidate’; Update: Tweet deleted

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/311471076972580864

Conservafraud, birther and eminent domain abuser Donald Trump will take the stage at CPAC this week. For those keeping track, that’s supposedly the Conservative Political Action Conference.

Trump was hailed by ACU chairman Al Cardenas as “an American patriot and success story with a massive following among small government conservatives.” And now he’s praising the likely Senate candidacy of Democrat Ashley Judd. Not that Trump knows much about what it takes to be a “great candidate.”

Trump followed up his drooling by offering some advice: If the GOP wants to defeat “great candidate” Ashley Judd, someone had better gag Karl Rove.

You know, because she’s such a great candidate we can’t let Rove prop her up even more.

Heckuva job, CPAC!

Any comment from the CPAC organizers?

But maybe Trump is onto something here. Broken clocks and all that.

That’s right. Judd has already Akin-ed herself. And she hasn’t even officially tossed her Tennessee hat in the Kentucky Senate ring.

Popcorn ready!

Update:

Well look what we have here. Trump deleted his tweet proclaiming Judd a “great candidate.” You’d think he would know by now that Twitchy is forever.

Trump also doubled down on the Rove-bashing to distract from his deleted tweet.

    CPAC is a joke; someone needs to organize a Tea Party PAC to replace it.

    Don’t you find it interesting that a conservafraud is telling a RINO to back off?

      The whole RNC and ACU is a three-ring circus and everyone in it is running around like chickens with their heads cut off. They are in a state of confusion and think WE are the ones that need to change and not the lazy slugs who voted for Obama. I say let CPAC collapse itself, let the mother burner and let the true conservatives and libertarians take over the party.

    Yes Don…because the state that carried Romney by 23% has been hankering for a coal-hating, environmentalist feminazi who “winters in Scotland.”

    Trump…you’re fired.

    • Kevin Gallagher

      I assumed he was being sarcastic because she would be so easy to defeat.

      • Maxx

        Trump doesn’t have the nuance to be sarcastic. Remember, this is the same RINO who, according to the Washington Post, over the years has contributed $1.4M in campaign donations, 54% to Democrats, including $50K to Rahm Emanuel.

      In fairness to Donald, it is possible that he had his tongue in his cheek. It’s hard to tell in a tweet.

      And, if anything he might say about Ashley Judd at the CPAC bun toss will further ensure that Ashley Judd will run for office in Kentucky, I’m all for it.

  • surfcitysocal

    CPAC lost most of its credibility with me already when it picked Romney as their guy last year (and I believe, the year before as well).

    Who knew that the definition of “great” was soooo vastly different between millionaires and non-millionaires?

    Trump: “Ashley Judd will be a great candidate”
    Obama: “The economy is doing great”
    Hollywood: “Socialism is a great idea”
    Sean Penn: “Hugo Chavez was a great man”

    I wonder when she will forfeit her Tennessee drivers license? I am fairly sure that she claims herself to be a citizen of Tennessee…..sshhh we have no state income tax. But of course Hillary became a citizen of New York with no problem. I am sure that Mrs. Judd can quickly become a citizen of the common wealth.

      isn’t she mrs franchetti? or did he finally wise up and dump her? or did he become mr judd?

      This is what I’m saying. It used to be beyond the realm of possibiliy that a person like Judd could win a political race. That is no longer the case. She is not to be taken lightly or be made fun of! It’s time to FOCUS jon the issues of why she would be a trainwreck as a senator!

    Could it possibly be either that he’s kidding or being woefully misconstrued? He did say the word “candidate.” I think the campaign would be hilarious.

    So for those of you who don’t listen to Mark Levin, Trump was on his show a few weeks ago complaining about Karl Rove’s group funding a commercial about Ashley Judd running for Senate. Trump said that if Rove had kept his mouth shut we probably wouldn’t even be talking about her. I read his Tweet as “Well Rove propped her up and how she’s here.”

    • Jaynie59

      Exactly. I heard that interview too and The Donald was right on the money. I’m reading all these conservative bloggers ridicule things Ashley Judd has said over the years and I just cringe. They don’t get it. So what if she’s a pretentious nut? Democrat voters will vote for her and a lot of other people will simply vote for her because she’s not a Republican. Or because she’s a movie star.
      How many conservatives will bother to vote for McConnell? If I lived in Kentucky I wouldn’t.
      Hopefully a real conservative can take McConnell out in the primary because if it’s between him and Judd he’ll lose and he’ll deserve to lose.

  • Probably Geoff

    I think he’s saying that she’s going to get a lot of press and publicity simply because she’s from Hollywood and that McConnell shouldn’t write her off because she’s a Dem in a heavy Rep state. I, nor Trump, don’t think she’ll be taking his seat, but she’s probably going to surprise some people. THAT’S what the Donald was saying. Not giving her an endorsement. I think this is a bit of an overreaction on our part…

      • greywulf1064

        Then again, Obama and Al Franken got elected.

  • Peyton

    Great as in Akin Great, or regular great?

  • Ben

    Ashley Judd running for Senate is as idiotic as giving Hussein Obama a Nobel peace prize. But look, it happened didn’t it? It’s priceless, a never ending source for jokes. She’s got as much of a chance to get elected as a heroine addict has being named drug czar. I sincerely hope they get more and more candidates like her, I truly do. Maybe put up Roseanne Barr, Jenean Garoffalo, and Kathy Griffin for senate seats. It would be a dream come true for a Bill Mahr, Roseanne Barr democratic presidential ticket… god would I love that.. one can only hope LMAO. Ashleyy Judd for senate is one hell of a good start!

  • Steve_J

    The Donald is into whatever the Donald thinks will make him more money. He’s to be trusted anymore than Rove.

  • Bill

    it should just be called REPAC (Republican Establishment Political Action Conference)

  • Jaynie59

    It never ceases to amaze me how clueless conservatives are about how liberals think. Donald Trump is absolutely right. Ashley Judd probably had no intention of running until the Rove group went out of their way to attack her.
    Don’t you people understand why we have Obamacare today? Everybody forgets that the Democrats fought amongst themselves for a year and couldn’t get a bill passed without bribery and back room deals. And the bill they did manage to pass that Christmas Eve was so awful the Dems would probably never have gotten it through if it weren’t for two people: Scott Brown and Michele Bachmann.
    Conservatives need to understand one basic concept: liberals hate you. They hate you with the passion of a thousand suns. They consider you Evil with a capital E. You are the ONLY evil these people understand. They honestly and truly believe that conservatives, which to them means Republicans because they don’t know the difference, are going to destroy the country. They think they’re fighting the good fight and that YOU must be stopped at all costs.
    Liberals don’t believe in anything other than stopping you. Conservatives. So attacking Ashley Judd so early only energizes them. They must fight back. They must win against Evil. It gives them a sense of purpose.
    The Donald is right. If Ashley Judd runs for the Senate in Kentucky she will win and you can blame Karl Rove.
    I swear the only real conservatives left anymore besides Rush and Mark Levin are ex-liberals. We know how liberals think and until conservatives wise up and fight back with savvy, no Republican will ever win another national election.

    • Raye09

      Most hardcore liberals hate republicans and sorta tolerate libertarians(because they think the small government folks are just plain ol’ crazy constitution thumpers). They truly think the republican party is evil, they truly think our constitution is evil. The republicans will not win ANYTHING until they wise up, stop trying to rub elbows and fight back. Instead of giving miss Judd so much attention, the focus needs to be on promoting the republican candidate(s). If conservatives don’t wise up in 2014 the Senate AND House will be democrat-run, conservatives will have zero say.

      Think of it this way: You can be socially liberal and fiscally conservative, and you will still be trashed and marked as the devil simply because you don’t believe every word and cause the liberals support; and simply because you believe that ones personal life should not be funded by others. If you do not accept Obama as the Lord and savior you will be called racist, jealous and “difficult” and the liberal media will go through hell and highwater to destroy you. Do you really think they will respect a full blown conservative? Hell no. They hate you with a venom that cannot be described.

      • Jaynie59

        Exactly. Except it’s not just hardcore liberals. Almost everyone I know is a default cultural liberal. They hate politics. They don’t want to talk about politics. But when pressed, they believe every rotten stupid thing that’s said about Republicans. They get very, very, angry. I was trying to convince my brother that everything he thought he knew about Sarah Palin was dead wrong and he got so enraged he hung up on me. I’m talking real rage.
        I’m convinced the Dems will win back the House and gain seats in the Senate in 2014. People really are that stupid. The undecided voter choice today is not between Democrat and Republican, but between Democrat and not voting. The attacks have worked.

        • Raye09

          Yup, the media has been very successful in turning a lot of undecided voters and moderates to the democrat party. I can’t argue with that.

  • http://www.facebook.com/liberals.needhelp Liberals Needhelp

    Judd is an actress. She can ‘act’ like a viable, intelligent, moderate candidate easily. See our President for how to do that……….have a far left liberal, left of San Francisco Bay Area style political mindset for 20-30 years, and guess what? You can ACT like a moderate IF the media likes you, & wants you to win. Like Obama, the media will assist Judd, and help her portray herself as a moderate Democrat ready to replace a pasty, white, dull, boring, old, older than dirt GOP Senator.
    Trump is a great publicist. I think he is trying to get the GOP to take Judd very seriously from the get go…..as well as publicize himself 24.7.

    So which movie has qualified Ashley Judd to be a Senator? I know the Republicans are spineless and somewhat of a joke, but come on… now celebrities are running for Democratic office? This country is so fkn upside-down…
