Trump goes on a tirade, GOP pushes panic button, scramble to draft Romney begins

Last night, the GOP frontrunner went on a jaw-dropping 95-minute screed that offended, well, pretty much everyone. Here are some of the lowest of the low-lights:

On Iowans:

“How stupid are the people of Iowa? How stupid are the people of the country to believe this crap?”

On our military:

“I know more about ISIS than the generals do.”

To a man in the crowd saying “we love you, Trump”:

“We love you too! Even though you’re a male, I still love you. Never been my thing, but I still love you.”

On the media:

“scum,” “idiots”

On Hillary Clinton:

playing the “women’s card, big league,”

Here’s what Trump had to say about his fellow Republicans:

On Ben Carson:

“He said that he’s pathological and he’s got basically pathological disease … I don’t want a person that’s got pathological disease…I said that if you’re a child molester, a sick puppy, a child molester, there’s no cure for that – there’s only one cure and we don’t want to talk about that cure, that’s the ultimate cure. No there’s two, there’s death and the other thing. But if you’re a child molester, there’s no cure, they can’t stop you. Pathological, there’s no cure.”

On Marco Rubio:

“Weak on illegal immigration … like, weak like a baby. Like a baby. Not a good poker player, because every time he’s under pressure he just starts to profusely sweat. If he was playing poker with me, I’d say ‘Ah!’ The water would start pouring off his body.”

On Carly Fiorina:

“I’m telling Carly whatever the hell her name is … Fiorina, ‘Will you stop cutting in?’”

On John Kasich:

“Kasich, ugh, I have a headache from this guy!”

Understandably, the GOP is in full freak-out mode. Just look at this paragraph from a story titled, “Time for GOP panic? Establishment worried Carson or Trump might win,” in the Washington Post this week:

According to other Republicans, some in the party establishment are so desperate to change the dynamic that they are talking anew about drafting Romney — despite his insistence that he will not run again. Friends have mapped out a strategy for a late entry to pick up delegates and vie for the nomination in a convention fight, according to the Republicans who were briefed on the talks, though Romney has shown no indication of reviving his interest.

Unfortunately for Republicans, trading an out-of-touch billionaire for an out-of-touch multi-millionaire isn’t going to solve their problems.

“Donald Trump’s sad and shocking tirade last night was an embarrassment to the Republican Party and the country. Even more embarrassing is the GOP’s accommodation of Trump. Time-and-time again, the Republican candidates in this field have refused to stand up to Trump and his repulsive policy ideas, and instead have chosen to imitate his antics. Whether it’s Jeb Bush slurring the children of immigrants, Chris Christie making reckless foreign policy commitments in the debate, or Marco Rubio running to the right of Trump on immigration, or RNC Chairman Reince Preibus calling his candidacy, “a net positive for everybody,” it’s clear that the GOP sees more political benefit to joining the schoolyard bully than standing up to him. It’s another example of the sad state of affairs for the GOP, and a dangerous prospect for the nation if Trump or his followers are given the keys to the White House.” – DNC Spokesman Eric Walker
