It’s safe to say there’s no love lost between Donald Trump and Fox News pollster Frank Luntz, and that was before Luntz unleashed a profanity-laden tirade Monday while discussing the real estate tycoon’s appeal to Americans.
Luntz told Politico the Republican presidential front-runner is “delivering a big ‘f*** you’ to the elites in America,” and said while that may feel good, it doesn’t solve the country’s problems. He also described Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders in the same manner.
“‘F*** you’ doesn’t solve anything,” Luntz said. “‘F*** you’ doesn’t make life any better. ‘F*** you’ makes you feel good, but it doesn’t get you where you need to go.”
“‘F*** you’ doesn’t make America strong,” he added. “‘F*** you’ doesn’t solve anything.”
Never one to hold back, Trump countered to say Fox News chief Roger Ailes should fire Luntz.
“I caught him cold,” the real estate tycoon told Politico. “And frankly, if I was Roger Ailes, I’d fire that guy so fast for what he did that his head would spin.”
Trump contends that Luntz has a beef with him because he refuses to do business with Luntz’s polling firm.
With Trump’s feud with Fox News star Megyn Kelly now on the back burner, this is not likely the last America hears from the two men. Grab the popcorn and stay tuned.
