Stupid, unforced, self-inflicted wounds

 Looks like Trump is the same Trump.

Trump decided to attack McEnany, who is now a co-host of Fox News’ Outnumbered, where she reported on polling data from Iowa indicating that Republican presidential candidate Ron DeSantis is “closing the gap” with Donald Trump since officially announcing his candidacy last week.

Trump’s use of “milktoast” is an apparent misspelling of the term “milquetoast,” which refers to a timid or weak person. How exactly can Trump justify using such a term to describe McEnany, given how she effectively and aggressively handled the media during her time as White House Press Secretary?

Just how many bridges is Trump going to burn, attacking people who were loyal to him through some pretty nasty shit?

This ain't hypothetical.  This is happening.  McEnany was a rock star for the Trump administration, and all she did was read a poll on TV and Trump loses it?

THAT is why Ron DeSantis has a chance in the primary.  Because he wouldn't do shit like that.

the question becomes:

how many people will now pay attention to what she says who wouldn't have before.

Meh. She's on Fox News. Pretty much every "news" outlet on TV has a self-limiting audience based on how much bullshit they're willing to swallow, and Fox News has even less of an audience now that Tucker is gone. But even people who don't watch TV news like me will remember that Trump started trashing one of his best and most loyal employees over stupid bullshit.
