Krauthammer: I Don’t Have ‘Animus’ Against Trump, He Just Has Horrible Temperament

krauthammerFox commentator Charles Krauthammer spoke with Howard Kurtz today about his longstanding feud with Donald Trump and how his beef with the GOP frontrunner is not based in personal animus.

Trump tends to riff a lot on the pundits who have criticized him, especially Krauthammer. On separate occasions, he has called Krauthammer an overrated “dummy” and “the worst.”

Krauthammer admitted today he got Trump wrong from the start (as did many others in the media), but said, “I just think he’s out of his depth… I think he’d be very bad for the country. That’s the only criteria by which I judge him.”

Krauthammer criticized Trump for not being “fluent on the issues” (especially the Middle East) and said that this goes way beyond politics and to the issue of his “inappropriate” temperament.

Kurtz asked Krauthammer about saying the same of Cruz. Krauthammer said Cruz may not be likable to many, but that isn’t a disqualifying factor for the presidency, and he at least shows the kind of self-restraint his GOP opponent hasn’t.
