Deep breaths people, because this is only a drop in the bucket of crazy that today brought us, courtesy of the Republican party.
A Donald Trump spokesperson, allegedly a person good enough at public relations to be paid to be a spokesperson, accused former Florida Governor Jeb Bush of allowing 9/11 hijackers to train in Florida under his watch.
Sam Stein, Senior Politics Editor at Huffington Post, tweeted:
Trump spokesperson: some 9/11 hijackers trained in Florida, “under Jeb Bush’s watch to take down those towers"

Yes. The Republicans are eating each other alive. And Donald Trump is so incompetent or self-aggrandizing that he hired a spokesperson just like himself. That is to say, someone who is not good at being a spokesperson.
Meanwhile, George W. Bush appeared for his brother, the hopefully branded “Jeb!” of no last name, in the one place in America that still loves W – South Carolina. Many tears were shed in nostalgia as W shared that he was “eating some bacon…” and other folksy jokes. The scary part was W was better coming off the bench after seven years than any of the current Republican candidates.
Marco Rubio put out a new ad about morning in America, using footage from Canada. Etc.
But the Trump camp accusing Bush of being responsible for the hijackers who trained in Florida is the crazy cherry on thus far.
If Republicans aren’t careful, someone is going to really mess up and we will finally discuss the weapons of mass destruction without a media so in love with George W. Bush that they couldn’t see straight.
