Donald Trump’s campaign was under fire today. Unofficial campaign surrogate Curt Schilling went to bat for him on Fox Business, defending Trump’s joke about dating a 10-year-old girl in 10 years. Host Trish Regan was not inclined to go there with him.
Schilling tweeted about the exchange.
Telling someone he or she has a beautiful daughter — which is not what Trump did — is nice. Intimating you’re going to be interested in said beautiful daughter when that prospect is legal is, even in jest, creepy. Claiming it’s okay because it’s Trump and he says things like that doesn’t make it less so.
If you’re intrigued by Curt Schilling’s political thoughts, we’d remind you his blog presence remains quite active.
