Donald Trump's wingman: Sen. Tom Cotton

  • WINGMAN: Sen. Tom Cotton had Donald Trump's back yesterday after Hillary Clinton attacked Trump on foreign policy.

Hillary Clinton
blasted Donald Trump yesterday for his dangerously uninformed approach to foreign policy and it produced a rare "win of the news cycle" for the Democratic presidential candidate.

Clinton, for once, claimed top billing in coverage by major news outlets. Trump offered a lame Tweet in response to punch line after punch line about some of the mind-boggling stuff Trump has said — safe zones in Syria, indiscriminate nuclear deployment, his boast that he knows more than generals about ISIS. Similarly, at a subsequent speech Trump said little in response to the criticism, turning instead to mocking her for other reasons.

But Trump had a wingman in U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton. He took quickly and multiple times to social media in what seemed obvious responses to news about Clinton's speech with denunciations of Hillary Clinton on foreign policy. Angling still for a spot on the Trump ticket? He'd certainly be ready to mix it up on this ticket where Trump is not, though the talking points are familiar to any Fox viewer. Benghazi, Iran nuclear deal, e-mail.
