In January 2016, Donald Trump hailed Democrat Senator “Dirty” Harry Reid as someone with whom he could work. He claimed to always have had a great relationship with Reid and used that as an opportunity to bash Texas Senator Ted Cruz, his top rival for the GOP nomination at the time, as not being able to get along with anyone.
On the Senate floor on Thursday, Harry Reid gave new meaning to the phrase, “With friends like these, who needs enemies” with the absolutely insulting tongue-lashing he gave Trump. Reid, who in 2013 after attacking Republicans incessantly from the Senate floor, even going after those he perceived as his political enemies illegally on his official Senate page, had the audacity to lecture about civility.
Perhaps Dirty Harry should go back and listen to his own words about civility. Then again, he’s a lying hypocrite so it wouldn’t matter anyway.
In his Senate speech, Reid said the following about Trump.
“Let’s be clear about Donald Trump. He’s a spoiled brat, raised in plenty, who inherited a fortune, used his money to make more money and did a lot of it by swindling working men and women. Trump is a human leech who will bleed the country sitting at his golf resort laughing at the money he has made, even though working people, many have been hurt and ruined.”

Oh, Hypocrite Harry, you have some nerve to talk about leeches. Perhaps you came up with that word when you looked in the mirror and saw a man who has spent his entire life in “public service” only to somehow end up a millionaire living in a Ritz-Carlton penthouse in Washington, DC while supporting policies that are bleeding the country dry.
