Donald Trump Calls Martin O’Malley A Weak Pathetic Baby

The campaign is not going the way Martin O’Malley must have hoped. Bernie Sanders emerged as the major opponent to Hillary Clinton. Making matters worse, when people fearing the collapse of Clinton’s campaign due to scandals and desiring a more mainstream candidate the talk centers on Joe Biden entering the race.

Maybe the debates will help get O’Malley’s campaign on track, but he will have to wait until October for that opportunity thanks to the Democratic National Committe’s decision to protect Hillary Clinton. OMalley  did receive some unexpected attention–an attack from Donald Trump for apologizing after offending black lives matters activists. Politco reports:

Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley apologized “like a disgusting, little, weak, pathetic baby” for his remark that “all lives matter,” Donald Trump said in an excerpt of a new interview aired Friday on Fox News.

In an interview with Jeanine Pirro for her program “Justice” set to air Saturday night, Trump said that the former Maryland governor did not need to say he was sorry.

“And then he apologized like a little baby, like a disgusting, little, weak, pathetic baby. And that’s the problem with our country,” Trump said, according to a clip aired on “Fox and Friends.”

Being attacked by Donald Trump is hardly a negative sign, and it is providing some attention for O’Malley, who took advantage of the opportunity to respond:

“Governor O’Malley stands with those who have the guts to stand up to Donald Trump’s hate speech,” O’Malley spokeswoman Lis Smith said in a statement provided to POLITICO that included a link to MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow praising the governor for meeting with employees of Trump’s Las Vegas hotel seeking to form a union earlier this week.

“It speaks volumes about the Republican Party today that this is their front-runner. Unlike the rest of the Republican field, we’re not interested in engaging in a race to the bottom with Mr. Trump,” Smith said.
