In a one-two punch that will likely only end up boosting Trump’s approval rating as has been the case every time a member of the establishment, especially one as disgraced as Anthony Wiener, disparages the presumptive republican presidential nominee, yesterday morning Former Rep. Anthony Weiner also known as Carlos Danger, took a page from comedian Jon Stewart’s joke book, when the husband of Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin lashed out at Donald Trump calling the presumptive Republican presidential nominee “Fuckface Von Clownstick.”
“If we are gonna test fanciful hypotheticals, how does HRC do against F*ckface Von Clownstick?” Weiner wrote in response to a poll showing Clinton beating Trump by 3 points.

Supposedly Wiener’s attack is based on a Jon Stewart 2013 joke about Trump’s birth name being “F—face Von Clownstick” after Trump made an anti-semitic comment about the former “Daily Show” host.
Adding fuel to the fire, the many who many expected to be the Republican presidential candidate as recently as a year ago, Jeb Bush also chimed in on Saturday that he understands why voters are backing presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, but he was critical of the way Trump is “preying on people’s angst rather than offering tangible solutions”, the Hill reported.
Speaking at an event in Amsterdam hosted by the Nexus Institute, the former presidential candidate discussed the rise of Trump and of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
“What I fear is that people, kind of looking down their nose, will say the people that are supporting Donald Trump are a bunch of idiots. They’re not. They’re legitimately scared. They’re fearful. They’re not as optimistic for legitimate reasons, and there should be respect for that,” the former Florida governor said, according to CNN. “And on the other side, a similar respect needs to be shown.”
That message appears to no have trickled to most of the media, or Senor Danger, just yet.
Bush, who previously endorsed Ted Cruz for president, was not as critical of Trump as he has been in the past but is still unlikely to back the presumptive GOP nominee according to the Hill. Bush added that Trump has “been phenomenally good at using the new way of communicating” to stay at the front of news cycles.
“He can literally wake up — I have this vision of him in, you know, silk pajamas, with his little slippers on with a ‘T’ on his emblem. He wakes up and he sends out a tweet ripping, you know, someone a new one,” Bush said.
“He’s the first guy that’s ever been allowed to call into everything but ‘Meet the Press.’ I think they even relented. So he has been a master at how you get into the media, the new media, the diverse media that exists today in a way that had never been done before.”
In short, Trump won where Jeb lost, but at least it is refreshing to see the Bush clan member admit that he was outplayed.
The question now is whether this will also work on the national arena faced with Hillary as his challenger ahead of the November 8 presidential election.
