At his little confab in Buckhead this afternoon, Erick Erickson hailed ¡Jeb! as “the most conservative Republican governor” and denounced Donald Trump for his mean-spirited, sexist remarks about women:
“ATLANTA – After rescinding an invitation to Donald J. Trump over his misogynistic comments about a Fox News reporter, the leader of a conservative conference said on Saturday morning that his email box filled with vitriolic messages.
Erick Erickson, the conference leader, told attendees of the RedState Gathering here that “we will not gain the White House” by using such language, particularly against women. Mr. Trump seemed to suggest to CNN Friday night that the Fox News reporter, Megyn Kelly, had questioned him aggressively during the first Republican presidential debate because she was menstruating.
“If your standard-bearer has to resort to that,’’ Mr. Erickson told hundreds of conservative activists in a packed hotel ballroom, “we need a new standard-bearer.’’
“We will not gain the White House,’’ he added, “if we’re screaming at people, calling them whores and queer and the N-word.’’ …”
Trump denounced Erickson as a “weak and pathetic leader.”
Note: We remember how Erickson was pretty tight with Rick “Fed Up” Perry in 2012 … and he’s still close to the swaggering moron in 2015.
