Trump asks if questions about World Trade Center, Iraq are fair game now that W’s joining Jeb

Former President George W. Bush will join his brother Jeb on the campaign trail in South Carolina today, and Donald Trump asked about bringing up certain topics:

Trump’s getting plenty of criticism for comments similar to those he made during Saturday night’s GOP debate:

On “Face the Nation,” Trump said of 9/11, “I am not blaming [President Bush], although…the CIA said there was a lot of information that something like that was going to happen.”

Welp, suppose it’s kind of fitting that an alleged deserter gets to wander off … for dessert:

From CNN:

Members of his reintegration team escort him whenever he leaves base and interacts with the public, the Army spokeswoman said. His stops have included a library, a supermarket and several stores of his choosing.

Bergdahl has also eaten at fast-food and sit-down restaurants. The Army sergeant is encouraged to pick the places, but because he’s not from San Antonio, he is offered some advice.

Gee, that’s nice. You know, guided reintegration actually sounds like a pretty sweet deal, especially when you consider what Bergdahl may be guilty of.

It’s convenient, too. Really puts his talents to use.

CNN asks if Bush or Clinton is the better shoe dodger; Best answer revealed

Yesterday, during a speech in Las Vegas, a woman was arrested after throwing a shoe at Hillary Clinton. During a press conference in Baghdad in 2008, George W. Bush dodged two shoes that were thrown at him by an Iraqi journalist.

But one suggestion for the “best dodge” winner wasn’t Bush or Clinton, but rather…

Ding! We have a winner!
