AND RICK SANTORUM GOT RILED UP …
|| By FITSNEWS || He hasn’t decided whether to run for president, but billionaire real estate mogul and reality television star Donald Trump is armed for a “revolution.”
During an appearance this weekend at The Citadel – South Carolina’s military college – Trump and U.S. Senator Tim Scott were presented with replicas of Revolutionary War-era muskets. The guns were gifts from The Citadel Republican Society, which honored Trump and Scott at its annual Patriot Dinner fundraising event.
Former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum – another would-be presidential contender – also attended the event and addressed the crowd. But he didn’t get a musket.
According to one guest, Trump’s speech was “business related, motivational.”
Santorum’s remarks? We’ll have a report on them momentarily, but apparently it’s a good thing he didn’t have a gun in his hand when he was speaking because his comments were reportedly over the top in their support for America’s failed (and incredibly costly) policy of global interventionism.
Which, sadly, appears to be “trending.”
Scott also addressed the crowd, but his comments were described as “tame” – focusing on conservative angst with U.S. president Barack Obama‘s socialized medicine law and the 2013 scandal at the Internal Revenue Service.
