Players: Donald Trump, billionaire businessman, amateur conservative commentator and champion of the birther movement; George Will, pulitzer-prize winning conservative commentator.
The Opening Serve: Will took the first shot during his appearance on ABC's This Week with George Stephanopolous on Sunday. Will was asked if he saw any benefit to Mitt Romney allying himself with Trump, and he didn't hold back. "What voter is going to vote for him because he’s seen with Donald Trump?" Will asked. "The cost of appearing with this bloviating ignoramus is obvious, it seems to me. Donald Trump is redundant evidence that if your net worth is high enough, your IQ can be very low, and you can still intrude into American politics." Burn notice.
The Return Volley: We'll admit we're a little disappointed with Trump's response. He took to Twitter last night to call Will "the dumbest(and most overrated) political commentator of all time." He added that, "If the Republicans listen to him, they will lose."
What They Say They're Fighting About: Mitt Romney's campaign for President. Both are conservative commentators, whether we like it or not, and both would like to think they know the best ways to help him win.
