Barney Frank looked disgusting—nipples protruding—in his blue shirt before Congress. Very very disrespectful.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 21, 2011
Necessary context: Frank was wearing a sling on his arm. Our opinion, Mr. Trump? Congress should wear T-shirts and jeans to save money on clothing. That’s what your constituents wear, guys!
» It only takes two to tango: The Newsmax-hosted, Donald Trump-moderated Republican debate later this month will feature only Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum, as Jon Huntsman, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, Rick Perry and Michele Bachmann have all declined to attend. This is somewhat embarrassing for Trump and Gingrich, although Santorum could stand to benefit from going toe-to-toe with this month’s frontrunner. Question: Was Gary Johnson, who always complains about not being invited to these things, invited?
» That makes it a Santorum-Gingrich affair. No one else has RSVP’d yet; Ron Paul and Jon Huntsman have both declined the invite, and Karl Rove, who has a bit of influence in Republican circles, has discouraged all the other candidates from attending. Gingrich said he’ll be going “just for the entertainment value,” which is, well, strange.
