Clown Trump Exposed as Foreign Policy Know-Nothing by ‘Third Rate Radio Announcer’

Posted by on Sep 04, 2015 at 8:08 am

Just imagine how stupid a second- or first-rate radio announcer might make him look.

Donald Trump is blasting Hugh Hewitt after stumbling over foreign policy questions in an interview with the conservative radio host.

“[He is] a third rate radio announcer,” Trump told hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Friday morning.

He’s happy to go on his show, but then when he looks like an idiot, it’s the radio guy who’s third rate. Got it.

Trump clashed with the radio host on Thursday evening’s “The Hugh Hewitt Show.” Hewitt began asking him what he called “commander-in-chief” questions about international affairs. The exchange became heated when Trump mistook a question about Iran’s Quds Force as a query about the Kurds.

On Friday, Trump said that the broadcaster’s show is beneath him despite his multiple appearances with Hewitt since launching his 2016 campaign in June. Trump said Hewitt was trying to embarrass him by asking about obscure topics.

“Every question was, ‘do you know this one or know that one?’” Trump said.

“I do think the Kurds are not being utilized properly or being used properly,” he added.

Hewitt is also slated to co-moderate the second GOP debate on CNN on Sept. 16.

Reports emerged on Friday that Trump’s campaign staff are furious over Hewitt’s questioning of their candidate and is considering blacklisting him from future interviews.

“@HughHewitt producer says Trump’s team spitting fire over ‘gotcha’ FP Qs,” Political Editor Guy Benson tweeted.  “Threatening to never do show again.”

His shocking lack of awareness doesn’t seem to bother his moronic supporters, but it should terrify you.

HH: Are you familiar with General Soleimani?

DT: Yes, but go ahead, give me a little, go ahead, tell me.

HH: He runs the Quds Forces.

DT: Yes, okay, right.

HH: Do you expect his behavior…

DT: The Kurds, by the way, have been horribly mistreated by …

HH: No, not the Kurds, the Quds Forces, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Quds Forces.

DT: Yes, yes.

HH: …is the bad guys.

DT: Right.

HH: Do you expect his behavior to change as a result…

DT: Oh, I thought you said Kurds, Kurds.

HH: No, Quds.

DT: Oh, I’m sorry, I thought you said Kurds, because I think the Kurds have been poorly treated by us, Hugh. Go ahead.

HH: Agreed. So Soleimani runs the Quds Forces. Do you expect his behavior is going to change as a result of this deal with Iran?

Embarrassing. But don’t worry. When he becomes president he’ll be up to speed or something.

HH: You know, I’d buy that, because you’re a builder. But on the front of Islamist terrorism, I’m looking for the next commander-in-chief, to know who Hassan Nasrallah is, and Zawahiri, and al-Julani, and al-Baghdadi. Do you know the players without a scorecard, yet, Donald Trump?

DT: No, you know, I’ll tell you honestly, I think by the time we get to office, they’ll all be changed. They’ll be all gone. I knew you were going to ask me things like this, and there’s no reason, because number one, I’ll find, I will hopefully find General Douglas MacArthur in the pack. I will find whoever it is that I’ll find, and we’ll, but they’re all changing, Hugh. You know, those are like history questions. Do you know this one, do you know that one. I will tell you, I thought you used the word Kurd before. I will tell you that I think the Kurds are the most under-utilized and are being totally mistreated by us. And nobody understands why. But as far as the individual players, of course I don’t know them. I’ve never met them. I haven’t been, you know, in a position to meet them. If, if they’re still there, which is unlikely in many cases, but if they’re still there, I will know them better than I know you.

Hewitt is one of the moderators at the next GOP debate, so this sets up Trump to act like a baby once again. Has anyone noticed a pattern?

    And our foreign policy geniuses in the WH and Congress (Obama/Kerry/Clinton/Corker/McConnell/Boehner) have gotten us exactly where.

    You guys laugh it up. Dole knew foreign policy. Bush 41 knew foreign policy as his son did. McCain, sure. Romney, of course … and of course Jeb! knows it! Both Bush presidencies were marred by Big-Government, democrat-lite administrations. Good men, but neither was conservative. The rest all lost because NO ONE wins elections on foreign policy chops.

    That’s for calling a long-time reader of JWF an idiot for liking Trump. Great job there. Trump is nothing but the deserved candidate of choice after the GOP has lied to us over and over and over again. Pick two things and do them. Build a wall, and deport illegals. If Trump ONLY did those two things, the foundation would be set for the principled folks to come in later and build on it…. but no….let’s laugh at him and sneer at those… across party lines btw, who say hell no to Jeb!.. cause if it’s not Trump, Jeb! will be the nominee… and millions will stay home… again.

  4. skzion on 4/04/15 at 9:52 am

    Oh please. These were obvious gotcha questions. Who particularly runs Quds couldn’t be less relevant.

  5. Dawn M on 4/04/15 at 10:24 am

    Ahh, I see, our betters here at JWF, I site I’ve read on and off for years and always enjoyed, thinks I’m an idiot. Oh well, there are other sites and you clearly don’t need my clicks. Oh, and I’ve never commented here before today.

    What I don’t get about all this “clown” nonsense, the “purity” nonsense, etc. is WFF?? Do you ceaseless chicken littles even hear yourselves?? For years you’ve whined about not being able to win, and here, finally, is a chance to WIN! Trump doesn’t need to know every bit of detail, leaders do this thing called “delegate” and good leaders hire good people to take care of the details. Trump certainly has his bona fides in that respect.

    So dismiss us as stupid, laugh at us, call us names, go ahead. We’ve had all that thrown at us by liberals for years, we’re used to it. Meanwhile, I’m going to stick with the one candidate that I think can WIN! TRUMP 2016!

    I listen to Hugh – a lot. He’s an establishment guy, so you have to be prepared to swear at the radio and change over to Mark Levin (who I actually like to listen to on his podcast uninterrupted over the weekend).

    That being said, Hugh’s questions weren’t anything that he doesn’t ask everyone. Anyone doing the debate with Hugh would do themselves a favor by having an aide podcast and summarize the show in preparation.

    Trump expects he can delegate everything he needs to do. That’s fine, but he has no inner core of beliefs. That means his administration will be a mess. The only reason I like him is he is prepared to close the boarders and fix the immigration mess. That’s probably worth having a hot mess. After all, it can’t be worse than Obola.

  7. Live Free on 4/04/15 at 10:45 am

    Real Americans don’t want a continuation of current foreign policy. We do not require that Trump know about it, just that he will destroy it! Remember the definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different result. Trumps proper response should have been “don’t know, don’t care”.

  8. Phelpss on 4/04/15 at 10:47 am

    You don’t convince someone to change their mind by calling them moronic — you galvanize them. That’s only useful for rallying another group against them.

    But then again, if you were good at persuading people to change their minds, you would see why Trump was a good candidate.

  9. Dogbert on 4/04/15 at 10:48 am

    So exactly what specific foreign policy initiative will be driven by knowing the name of the general who leads the Quds forces? That’s right, none. Do you see a positive initiative coming from Trump’s statement about the Kurds being mishandled?

    I’m sorry, but youse guys writing this blog are the clowns.

  10. JB71 on 4/04/15 at 10:59 am

    The problem hits when people who are ‘so smart’ don’t realize what they don’t know.

    I don’t expect a President to have every fact at his fingertips – what I expect is that the President is SMART ENOUGH to hire the people who will advise him in areas he’s short on, and get the best people he can regardless of ideology.

    Obama’s been a f’king disaster in that regard. The man would rather hear how magnificent and smart he is – and he’s hired his advisors accordingly. This is, as the saying goes, one hell of a way to run a railroad.

    Trump’s smart enough to hire experts to take care of details, I think – and he’s more concerned about getting things working than he is about being seen as wonderful, magnificent, and smart. Or at least that’s how he’s coming across to me – I could well be wrong.

    (Hell, I thought Obama, as crappy as he seemed before being elected the first time, HAD to have something on the ball otherwise he wouldn’t have been pushed up as Presidential material. Goes to show that in politics charisma is everything – and we’ll see what photogenic candidate gets it this year.)

    But then again, if you were good at persuading people to change their minds, you would see why Trump was a good candidate.

    What’s amazing is that you almost certainly don’t see the contradiction in the statement. So basically the host here is wrong for calling people moronic as it shows his inability to sway people, but Donald Trump does it (third-rate radio host, etc.) and it’s evidence that this is the guy that will galvanize the public.

    Betcha Trump would be better than Hussein or Granny Cankles on any foreign policy issue. Ol’ Jebbie would only speak in espanol and say it was act of love if there was a foreign policy crisis.

  13. ScienceABC123 on 4/04/15 at 11:27 am

    I wonder how President Obama or Sec. of State Kerry would do with the same questions?

  14. bruce lorraine on 4/04/15 at 11:46 am

    I don’t remember obummer ever being asked questions like that, maybe if Trump had black skin.

  15. Dave H on 4/04/15 at 12:07 pm

    Is Trump running for President or Insult-Comic-in-Chief? Because he’s doing a real bang-up job at the latter. Basically, you support Trump or you’re an insignificant ignoramus who isn’t worth talking to. Which is so different from Obama … how?

  16. Ken on 4/04/15 at 12:10 pm

    good lord, you Jammie wearing fools are aptly named. WHO F-ING CARES what the names of these terrorist scum are? Do you honestly think it’s actually important for someone to know who the number two guy in AQ or other terror groups is prior to becoming CinC? Like that wouldn’t come up in a briefing? I’m not all that crazy about Trump myself, but at least the man has BALLS!! not like these milquetoast GOPe losers we have now. At least he fights!! Get ready for Jebby, JWFs, cuz that’s what you’re going to get if Trump bows out.

  17. libsick on 4/04/15 at 1:52 pm

    I’m sick of your attitude, JWF. Like you know everything?
    What do you think the front-runners on the other side know? How to squeeze money out of every act they commit? How to lie and corrupt and commit treason?

  18. mossomo on 4/04/15 at 1:58 pm

    @6 “he [Trump] has no inner core of beliefs.”

    Yes he does. He is the only candidate I’ve heard that will identify islam as a problem.

    @15 Basically, you support Trump or you’re an insignificant ignoramus who isn’t worth talking to.

    There’s a difference btwn not supporting a candidate and clowning a candidate. If you clown DT, he comes back with a haymaker!

    I’m an irregular commenter at best, but because BadBlue links you guys I read your stuff – again occasionally. I’m also no Trump supporter, but I fail to see how being a foreign policy wonk is a prerequisite to being presidential. It really isn’t, guys. What was that line that Clinton rode to the White House when asked about foreign policy, again? “It’s the economy, stupid.” So being a foreign policy guy isn’t the most important thing. I don’t think the public at large is overly concerned this time. Also, Hugh’s questions were down-in-the-weeds stuff. I care a fair bit about foreign policy myself, but heck, I didn’t know any of those questions. Your attitude sucks, though. Did YOU know the answer to Hugh’s questions? I would be surprised if you did.

    Between President44 and Trump, who would give more military support for the Kurds against ISIS? Moreover, between President 44 and Trump and the destruction of ISIS, who would you opt for?

    I find you turning into Captain Ahab in his quest to the destroy, the great White Whale , Mr.Trump, perplexing to say the least. Perhaps you could blog for Little Green Footballs.

  22. ZootAllure on 5/05/15 at 2:15 am

    “Perhaps you could blog for Little Green Footballs.”

    I had the same thought. Lol …Maybe he can start flouncing people.

    I’m a Cruz guy but am loving Trump pissing on the GOPe wheaties as well as kicking PC in the jewels. He is also cutting through the weasel like language that all Politicians use…including Cruz.

    As far as calling me a moronic supporter…

    Up your nose with a rubber hose A**W***

  23. only true believers on 7/07/15 at 10:56 am

    WTF is a Hugh Hewitt? An RNC RINO rat plant sent to trip up Trump by the chamber of commerce? Give up on it republicants and get back to ballwashing sobama. Is it true that Hewitt will moderate the next debate?
    Don’t throw the election so soon republicants, the rubes will figure it out.

  24. Cuckservative Jammies on 8/08/15 at 7:00 pm

    Get your marching orders cuckservative. We laugh at you and not with you. Enjoy 8 years of Hillary or Biden. LMFAO!

  25. Snorkdoodle Whizbang on 9/09/15 at 8:18 am

    Don’t you just love how a die-hard supporter of a candidate will call out someone for insulting them… and then proceed to insult them in the process?

    Oh, and btw, when your candidate flubs a question and one of their rivals subsequently nails the question then that is a gaffe, not a ‘gotcha’ question.

    …and no, I don’t support Jeb.
