Peggy Noonan: Donald Trump Is ‘Part Of The Freak Show’

Wall Street Journal columnist and former Ronald Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan has condemned the Romney campaign for associating with birther Donald Trump. “My view is that the Romney campaign made a mistake,” she said Tuesday morning on CBS. “There was a certain freak show atmosphere to the Republican primaries in the past six months or so. Now that’s kind of over, the show is over. Mr. Romney wins the nomination tonight. Texas will put him over the top. This is a good time to differentiate himself with the stranger aspects of the Republican race.” She added, “One way you don’t do it, I think, is do a fundraiser with Donald Trump. He was part of the freak show aspect.” Watch it:

On Sunday, Washington Post columnist George Will described Trump as a ”bloviating ignoramus.”
