Donald Trump's incessant criticism of longtime Republican strategist Karl Rove continues, with the leading GOP presidential hopeful now calling Rove an "establishment flunky."
In separate tweets Thursday, the brash billionaire accused Rove, a former senior adviser to President George W. Bush, of making "false statements" both in print, as a columnist for the Wall Street Journal, and on TV, as a Fox News contributor.
The tweets come less than 24 hours after Rove published his latest column, titled "Trump is the Democrats' Dream Nominee," in which he raises questions about the Republican front-runner's electability.

Gotta agree with Donald here.
Has it backwards
I’m on board with that!!!
Trump hits back.
What is so hard to understand?
Oh yeah, I forgot. Republicans are just supposed to take it and never hit back...
Karl Rove IS an establishment flunky, albeit well-paid.
Karl Rove can’t leave Donald Trump along (e.g., Rove’s recent Wall Street article pushing the talking point “Trump can’t win a general election”).
The author paints GOPe-backstabber Rove as a VICTIM,
even though the undocumented Democrat started every
negative interaction against Mr. Trump FOR MONTHS!!
Rove’s good for a little Trump earned media...probably about $50 worth.
This article is an example of distorted reality. The author tries to make it seem as if a Trump has an obsession rather than Rove, who has been writing poison pen screeds against Trump.
It’s Twilight Zone stuff.
“Has it backwards”
It isn’t like Rove is sitting peacefully at home. He criticized Trump. Trump criticized back. What did they think would happen?
This is one fight that Trump should let go. Its ginning up more publicity and donations for Has Been Rove than its helping Trump.
All he has to do is tweet to shoot down a WSJ article.
That's almost TOO much power for one man:)

TRUMP vs Rove
Sorry, but you all do not understand: Karl Rove is perhaps the greatest political scientist of all time:
He created the science of Psychopolitics - based on the fact that while the voting patterns of any individual can be unpredictable, aggregate patterns can be predicted with mathematical certainty.
His research led him to conclude that without intervention, society would take an unstable turn. Since stability is the most important goal of all, Karl met secretly with a bipartisan group of elders to devise a plan. They would form two SuperPACS, at opposite ends of the political galaxy, to monitor and control developments. One of these was American Crossroads, incorporated in the small town of Terminus, TX. The other one was only described as being located at some place called Politics’ End.
These SuperPACS functioned as intended for many years, silently guiding the voters to vote as they should, and maintaining proper order and stability. But then, something happened that the SuperPACS could not anticipate, and were not designed to handle: an individual.
He called himself Magnificent, but everyone knew him as “The Yuge”. He was an unstoppable force, winning poll after poll, hosting large rally after large rally. The First SuperPAC tried everything, but after every attack the Yuge just got stronger.
The only hope in stopping him was the mysterious Second SuperPAC. Frantic searches by both the First SuperPAC and the Yuge were fruitless at first. But then it was located in a small rented room in an office building on K Street in Washington, DC (”all politics leads to K Street, and at K Street all politics end”).
But Michael Murphy had forgotten to pay the rent, and the office was taken over by an internet-based Taco Stand.
So the Yuge won.
Establishment flunky just about covers it. LOL!
Trump understands how to do this better than anyone else. I have stopped worrying about his unorthodox methods and speeches. I used to have periodic uh-oh reactions to things he has said but then seen that they were calculated and produced desirable results.
