Presumptive President-Elect Donald Jolie Trump does not have a sense of humor when it comes to the subject of Donald Trump.
While virtually everything is off-limits when it comes to criticizing or questioning the veracity of the tacky mythos he has shoddily constructed for himself, one specifically verboten no-go area is his time at the Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania.
Challenging The Donald on his Wharton education is a surefire way make him go apesh!t. It goes at the crux of his "I'm a very intelligent guy" narrative, his "I went to an Ivy Leagues school, okay" narrative, and his "I refer to Wharton more than 8,000 time a day" narrative, all at once.
Basically, the rule is you don't talk about Wharton, only Donald Trump talks about Wharton.
So, funny story...
Yesterday, Trump went ham during an appearance in Iowa in what many outlets are calling a rant. Here's a taste of how WaPo saw it:
Trump called Republican rival Carly Fiorina "Carly whatever-the-hell-her-name-is," accused Democratic front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton of playing the "woman's card" and said Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) is "weak like a baby." He then devoted more than 10 minutes angrily attacking his chief rival, Ben Carson, saying the retired doctor has a "pathological disease" with no cure, similar to being a child molester.
The pathology that Trump referred to was Carson's reportedly loose relationship with the truth. While many of Trump's opponents would have been content to go respond with a basic "Pot meet kettle" analogy, perpetual failure machine Carly Fiorina stepped out of form and actually 'nailed it.'
Carly put this on her Facebook page in response to the rant:
