Trump Gets A Smackdown So Hard It Almost ... ALMOST ... Knocked That Dead Rat Off'a His Head

So we all know Mittsy's been lying about Chrysler closing up shop in the good old US of A and taking all its 'bidness' out there to China, right?

I mean, those of us with rational brains know it's a lie, especially when Chrysler itself calls it a lie. But now, Mittsy's long-haired lap-dog, Ronald McDonald Trump is weighing into the fray, not because he believes it, necessarily, but because he can't keep his ridiculous yap shut.

Trump, from his Twitter account, said, "Obama is a terrible negotiator. He bails out Chrysler and now Chrysler wants to send all Jeep manufacturing to China--and will!"

Which cause Ralph Gilles, the head of product design for Chrysler, to respond to Trump with this, also via Twitter: You are full of shit!"

Gilles becomes the second top Chrysler executive in three days to strongly deny the claim, first made my Mittsy’s lying mouth, and then echoed by an illiterate billionaire with internet access.


I mean, we all knew it, but it's still nice to see in print.

Now, Gilles is a gentleman, and sent a second Tweet: "I apologize for my language, but lies are just that, lies."

This TwitFight comes on the heels of Chrysler Group LLC Chief Executive Sergio Marchionne's email to employees flatly denied Romney's claim: 
"I feel obliged to unambiguously restate our position: Jeep production will not be moved from the United States to China."

Romney, speaking a week ago to a crowd in Defiance, Ohio, said that he had read a news article that said Chrysler's Jeep brand is considering moving "all production to China." he chose to outright blatantly lie to the people of Ohio because, well, he's desperate and will try anything, and because Jeep, Chrysler's global brand, has one of its three U.S. assembly plants in Toledo, Ohio.  Spreading fear into Ohio was a plan for Mittsy, until Chrysler spoke up and told him, Ohio, and all of us, that Mitt Romney is a liar.

And that Ronald McDonald Trump should, in TwitSpeak: STFU.

Now, to be fair, Chrysler does intend to make Jeeps in China, for the Chinese market. The company would not take any production away from Chrysler's U.S. plants, and, in fact, Chrysler is adding jobs and investment at its Ohio plant.

Funny, Mittsy never mentioned that, and neither did DeadRatHead.

But then one is a lying pandering asshat desperate for political office and the other one is a bloviating billionaire with an out-of-control ego.

Can't tell one from the other.

Trump is a media whore. He will say anything to get attention. Romney is shameless liar. Wednesday Romney will be just be another loser who will fade into history, a joke. Trump will continue to be a joke and get a lot of publicity, orange raccoon hair and all.

1) Chrysler has been making Jeep products in China since the early 1990s, possibly late 1980s. But you know that.
2) Donald Trump hasn't - save for his his boring Celebrity Apprentice shows - built anything big or great or closed any big deals in eons. Mostly he announces big plans and then bails on them.
3) Trump is, a walking psychological pathology and a textbook case of a borderline personality.
4) I believe that another well known name has offered Trump 1 million in cash to his favorite charity if he will shave his head. More to come, I am sure.

Mark Cuban offered him $1 million to shave his head, and then upped it to $2 million. Yet, no response.

So I wanted to thank Ron for saying exactly what I thought. Donald Trump is about as relevant as Snooki. At least she is gradually fading into the woodwork.

He needs to be important and famous, that's really the problem with him.
