Donald Trump Goes on Epic Rant Slamming GOP Candidates, the American People

On Thursday evening, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump gave a speech launched a 95-minute rant to the faithful in Iowa and it was … something else.

He threw insults at Hillary Clinton and Carly Fiorina, said Marco Rubio is “weak like a baby,” he promised to “bomb the shit out of” oil fields in Iraq and Syria, and called the media “scum” and “garbage.” But he directed most of his venom at—go figure, his closest rival in the race—Ben Carson. 

Trump said Carson has a "pathological disease" with no cure, comparing it to the incurable mental conditions of child molesters.

"A child molester, there's no cure for that," Trump said. "If you're a child molester, there's no cure. They can't stop you. Pathological? There's no cure."

Trump mocked Carson’s story of trying to stab a friend when he was a teenager, asking the audience if anyone had a knife so he could demonstrate that a belt buckle wouldn’t stop a knife attack, and asked:

"How stupid are the people of Iowa? How stupid are the people of the country to believe this crap?"

Trump expressed skepticism about Carson’s story of finding God:

"He goes into the bathroom for a couple of hours and he comes out and now he's religious," Trump said. "And the people of Iowa believe him. Give me a break. Give me a break. It doesn't happen that way. It doesn't happen that way… Don't be fools, okay?"

And then Trump promised to unify the country, thanked the audience, said it “was beautiful” and … scene.

These people are nuts.
