Donald Trump Blasts Obama and Praises Bachmann
Donald Trump is slamming President Obama once again. This time, over the vacation he's taking on exclusive Martha's Vineyard. Trump raised the roof with Fox News's Greta Van Susteren.
"Well the fact is, he takes more vacations than any human being I've ever seen. They used to complain about George Bush, but I understand he's already exceeded George Bush and we're not even through the year. We have a president that's constantly, whether it's Martha's Vineyard or someplace else, constantly on vacation. I mean, all the time, he's on vacation. So I think it sends a very, very bad message," said Trump.
He also spoke to Good Morning America, coming to the defense of Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann.
"She's a great, wonderful woman," said Trump.
Trump gushed about Bachmann the day after her slip up heard around the world when she said at a campaign event, "Let's all say Happy Birthday to Elvis Presley today!"
It was actually the anniversary of Elvis Presley's death. Trump thinks Bachmann is being unfairly treated.
"I think she is badly treated by the press, much as Sarah Palin is in my opinion. I thought the Newsweek cover was a disgrace," said Trump.
He lavished praise on the latest Republican to jump into the White House race, Texas Governor Rick Perry.
"I think he's a very impressive guy with a very good record," said Trump.
Perry isn't backing off his controversial comment calling Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke "almost treasonous."
"Printing more money to play politics at this particular time in American history is almost treasonous, in my opinon," said Perry.
President Obama wasn't upset when he was interviewed about it on CNN.
"I'll cut him some slack. He's only been at it for a few days now," said Obama.
And Trump says Perry's remark is much ado about nothing.
"He's using an expression. Everyone makes such a big deal. It's an expression," he said.
Meanwhile, INSIDE EDITION's Paul Boyd sat down with former U.S. Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell, author of the new book Troublemaker. She's no stranger to political controversy herself after having to defend against claims that she was a witch.
Boyd asked for her take on the criticism of President Obama's upcoming vacation.
"We need a leader who's going to sacrifice personal time. We need a leader who's going to be able to stand there and be a pillar of strength for us, and we have him checking out? Oh come on!" said O'Donnell.
