Karl Rove’s Super PAC American Crossroads is taking heat for spending quite a bit of money on a campaign ad targeting Ashley Judd — despite the fact that the actress has not yet announced her candidacy! Celebrity Apprentice star Donald Trump joined the debate via Twitter, accusing Karl Rove of wasting money.
Karl Rove is not a particularly popular guy right now, what with his post-election meltdown and the overall lack of success surrounding his Super PAC. Now, another unpopular political figure is chiming in…but surprisingly, Trump’s on the side of Karl Rove’s critics!
In yet another political Twitter rant, Donald Trump asked, “Why are people giving money to Karl Rove when he just wasted $400M without any victories? Use your head.” The businessman turned reality star turned pseudo-politician added, “Karl Rove is a total loser. Money given to him might as well be thrown down the drain.”
American Crossroads also wormed its way into Donald Trump’s Twitterthon: “Karl Rove’s strategy and commercials were the worst I have ever seen.” Although the American Crossroads was not mentioned by name in Trump’s tweet, Rove’s leadership position within the organization indicates that it is the Super PAC’s ads that Trump is attacking.
We’re wondering what Donald Trump thinks of the latest American Crossroads targeting Ashley Judd. The assumption is that Trump will not approve of Judd’s possible candidacy…but he may also find the prospect of targeting ads at a not-yet official candidate offputting. Is the enemey of your enemy your friend?
