Will Fellow Republican Candidates Show Donald Trump Some Love?

Don’t bet on that anytime soon as more and more candidates are seeking to distance themselves from the millionaire tycoon.

The Donald is taking the punches from other Presidential Republican candidates as well as political pundits, but he is apparently doing the rope-a-dope as reflected in the latest polls result which shows him as still the front runner among Republican candidates.

Some of his latest attacks come from supporters of Ohio Governor John Kasich who told reporters that the real estate mogul makes shocking comments for “entertainment value” that could hurt the Republican Party.

“There’s a long line of record here of this man making statements for headlines, for entertainment value, that quite frankly are divisive,” said U.S. Representative Pat Tiberi of Ohio.

Tiberi also criticized Trump for his recent claim that he saw American Muslims cheering in New Jersey after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 — a claim that police have said did not happen.

“It’s that type of rhetoric that is destructive,” Tiberi said. “It should be recognized for what it is.”

“I have great doubts about Donald Trump’s ability to be commander-in- chief,” Bush said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” ”If you listen to him talk, it’s kind of scary to be honest with you, because he’s not a serious candidate.”

There are also a number of Republican super Pacs groups that are hell bent on stopping Trump from getting the party’s nomination.

One of the groups reportedly told the press, “In the absence of our efforts, Trump is exceedingly unlikely to implode or be forced out of the race. The stark reality is that unless something dramatic and unconventional is done, Trump will be the Republican nominee and [Democratic front runner] Hillary Clinton will become president.”

In a Facebook post, Carly Fiorina, another candidate seeking the nomination for the Republican Party wrote, “Donald, sorry, I’ve got to interrupt again. You would know something about pathological. How was that meeting with Putin? Or Wharton? Or your self-funded campaign? Anyone can turn a multi-million dollar inheritance into more money, but all the money in the world won’t make you as smart as Ben Carson.”

Fiorina also told host Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that Donald Trump’s pattern of behavior is to say something insulting, offensive, outrageous,  gained media attention, and then claimed he has been misunderstood him.

“This is the pattern perhaps of an entertainer. It’s certainly not a pattern of a leader,” Fiorina said.

“Apparently, Donald Trump only feels big when he’s trying to make everyone else look small.  Of course, in the end, he looks the smallest of all,” she added.
