Anthony Wiener Calls Trump "F**kface Von Clownstick" As Bush Says Trump Supporters "Not A Bunch Of Idiots"

In a one-two punch that will likely only end up boosting Trump's approval rating as has been the case every time a member of the establishment, especially one as disgraced as Anthony Wiener, disparages the presumptive republican presidential nominee, yesterday morning Former Rep. Anthony Weiner also known as Carlos Danger, took a page from comedian Jon Stewart’s joke book, when the husband of Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin lashed out at Donald Trump calling the presumptive Republican presidential nominee "Fuckface Von Clownstick."

That's a musty old standard for commencement addresses: Find your passion, follow your dreams, take some risks, blah-blah-blah-blah-blah-blah.
