Donald Trump’s ‘Pivot’ Away from ‘Personal Insults’ Just Crashed and Burned

Donald Trump’s supposed “pivot” away from his strategy of the politics of personal destruction and insults didn’t last long, assuming it really ever started (pro-tip: You can’t typically teach a 70-year-old dog new tricks).

On Sunday, Trump’s newly minted campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, made the outlandish statement that Donald Trump “doesn’t throw personal insults,” which I’ll go ahead and categorize as an outright lie based on his past personal insults against Carly Fiorina, Megyn Kelly, Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz, Heidi Cruz, Rafael Cruz, Marco Rubio, as well as any major reporter who hasn’t licked his boots.

On Monday, Donald Trump again made Conway a liar, as Trump took to Twitter to launch personal insults against MSNBC co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.

Trump referred to Mika Brzezinski as “off the wall, a neurotic and not very bright mess,” while pushing a theory that the co-hosts are a romantic couple (which could be true, but keep in mind this is coming from a man who tried to hang Ted Cruz’s father with the murder of JFK), and calling them both “clowns.”

I think with most people, these would classify as personal insults, would they not?

Maybe Kellyanne Conway has a different definition of “personal insults” than the rest of the country does. Oh, and by the way, what in the hell is he doing tweeting at wee hour?
