Donald Trump: Karl Rove Has Done Ashley Judd A Favor

February 10, 2013 12:00 PM by Stephanie Gustafson

Ashley Judd hasn’t officially announced her candidacy in an upcoming Senate race against Kentucky’s Mitch Mcconnell, but that’s not stopping Karl Rove and American Crossroads from targeting her in a very early campaign ad. But Celebrity Apprentice star Donald Trump says that the negative ad will only help Judd’s potential campaign.

Donald Trump is not a big fan of either Karl Rove or Ashley Judd, but when choosing which big name to attack via Twitter, the Trump went straight for Rove’s throat. Following a Twitter rant in which he labeled Rove a “total loser,” Trump went on to tweetm “See the Ashley Judd ad by @karlrove and you will definitely vote for her and love Obama.”

The latest ad targeting possible Senate candidate Ashley Judd is largely negative, attacking Judd for being a radical liberal and even (gasp) loyal to Tennessee! But according to Donald Trump, the negative nature of the advertisement shouldn’t be too big of an obstacle for Judd, should she choose to run. In fact, it may even have provided her with a helpful boost before the campaign has even gotten off to a start! According to Trump, “@karlrove’s ad is the best thing that ever happened to Ashley Judd—simply increases her profile.”

Ashley Judd may have been bothered by the latest American Crossroads ad, but she didn’t seem all that perturbed in a recent statement she made in response to all the attention: “Ashley thanks Senator McConnell, Karl Rove, and their negative allies for all the attention as she considers her future political plans, although a decision hasn’t been made yet.”

Do you agree with Donald Trump? Or will Karl Rove’s ad cause real damage to any future Ashley Judd campaign?

    Every time Donald Trump makes an ass of himself, we think it’s not possible for Trump to make a bigger ass of himself — then he says something even worse. Ashley Judd vs. Mitch McConnell? I’ve got only one question: why isn’t Mitch McConnell in prison? How can a US Senator add $4 million a year to his net worth since 2004 without accepting bribes? It was speaker fees, yeah, right. If there a federal statute against a US Senator accepting bribes? If there isn’t, there should be. Get ol’ Mitch into a prison jumpsuit where he belongs.

    Joseph – The entire Congress would be in prison if adding to their net worth was a crime. There are many ways that legislators get wealthy while in office, and those ways are legal. Read the book,”Throw Them All Out”. It will open your eyes. As for Judd, if Kentucky wants a radical left wing nut and they vote her in, then they deserve what they get. McConnell, in his defense has been one of the few who could cross party lines and actually try to talk some sense into Harry Reid.

    Ashley Judd is smart and has a very thick skin. She’s not going to hide because of the rights smear campaign. I suggest they keep making themselves look bad like the hate mongers they are.

    Where do we send contributions to Ms. Judd’s campaign?
