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.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
