CNN political analyst Rick Santorum told CNN viewers this morning that “Democrats need to give Republicans, including Trump, time and space to work through their feelings about losing.”

“You know he’s just found out that he’s probably not going to be the president of the United States,” added Santorum.

The Twitterverse found that idea a bit funny considering how famously thoughtful Trump supporters have been about Democrats’ “feelings.”

Rick Santorum: These Kids Should Learn CPR Instead Of Protesting

Eternal douche nozzle Rick Santorum told a panel on CNN today that kids are “looking to someone else to solve their problem” when they should be taking individual action like “taking CPR classes.”

It’s worth noting that, while CPR is useful for heart stoppage, the shooting victim of an AR-15 with multiple holes ripped through their body would probably lose even more blood faster if someone started pumping on their heart.

In late February, during another panel discussion on CNN Santorum pointed to “broken homes without dads” as being something that is “common in these shootings.”

Host Jake Tapper pointed out a flaw in Santorum’s theory, as far as the Parkland shooting was concerned. “His dad had died,” Tapper told Santorum. “It wasn’t a ‘broken home.’”

#idiot

It’s so strange to me that conservatives, who used to champion rising up and taking a stand, all seem so opposed to these students raising their voices.

Watch below.

Twitter jumped on the comment including Parkland senior Emma Gonzalez who trolled Santorum in righteous fashion:

Rick Santorum Endorses Marco Rubio, Can’t Name One Of Rubio’s “Accomplishments”

Truly cringe-worthy TV there.

Rick Santorum has gone from the guy who won the 2012 Iowa Caucuses to coming in next to last this year, to endorsing someone for president that he can’t name ONE political accomplishment other than “winning a tough election.”

Santorum made an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” to praise Rubio, but clearly left his talking points in the dressing room.

From Mediaite:

“What do you list as Marco Rubio’s top accomplishment?”.

What followed was a dizzying array of questionable sidesteps and half-answers from Santorum, who himself won the Iowa Caucus in 2012. To Scarborough’s question, Santorum meekly managed to say that Rubio, “[Won] a tough election in Florida, pull[ing] people together from a variety of spots.”

Scarborough wasn’t having it, and repeated the question multiple times while others on the Morning Joe panel laughed at the absurdity of the situation.

“He’s someone who brings people together!” Santorum admitted sheepishly.

“He’s been in the Senate four years. Can you name his top accomplishment?” pressed Scarborough once more.

Mika Brzezinski pushed the former Pennsylvania Senator further, leading him with “Jeb Bush ran Florida. Donald Trump built a company. Marco Rubio… finish the sentence.” Predictably, Santorum could not, though he maintained his smile throughout the brief interview.


Rick Santorum Drops Out Of GOP Race, Endorses Sen. Marco Rubio

Anti-LGBT Rick Santorum endorsing anti-LGBT Marco Rubio tells you everything you need to know about Marco Rubio.

Santorum is the third Republican candidate to quit suspend his campaign since Monday night’s Iowa Caucuses.

Rick “Frothy Mix” Santorum Dropping His Presidential Bid

Virulently anti-gay, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick “Frothy Mix” Santorum will be announcing today that he is quitting suspending his presidential campaign after coming in 11th in the Republican Iowa Caucus Monday night.

From CNN:

Santorum won the 2012 Iowa caucuses and ended that race with the second-most number of delegates to eventually GOP nominee Mitt Romney. But he was unable to capture any momentum this year, despite extensive barnstorming efforts in Iowa.

He is the third Republican presidential candidate to drop out after Monday’s caucuses. Mike Huckabee ended his campaign that night, and Rand Paul suspended his campaign Wednesday morning.

Rick Santorum Goes After Ted Cruz In New Campaign Ad

File this under “Infighting is fun” as former Sen. Rick Santorum goes after current front-runner in Iowa, Sen. Ted Cruz, for the Republican nomination in a new ad airing in the Hawkeye state.

From Politico:

“Ted Cruz is wonderful at reading children’s fairy tales on the Senate floor,” the spot titled, appropriately, “Fairy Tales” begins, showing Cruz reading Dr. Seuss’ “Green Eggs and Ham” during a filibuster on the Senate floor in 2013.

It then contrasts Cruz’s conduct in the Senate with that of Santorum, who served from 1995 to 2007.

“Rick Santorum spent his time in the Senate a little differently,” the narrator says. “Eight years on the Senate Armed Services Committee, helping to modernize today’s Army to better be prepared for today’s threats. Santorum also wrote and passed tough laws putting harsh sanctions on Iran.”

Cruz went ballistic when a political cartoonist included his children in a recent cartoon after Cruz utilized his kids in an ad that aired during an episode of SNL.

I wonder how Cruz will take to the use of his kids here?

Rick Santorum: Equal Rights For LGBTs Could Make Kids Want To Be Transgender

Virulently anti-gay GOP White House hopeful Rick Santorum recently called in to The Steve Malzberg Show with the inane idea that LGBT rights bills could lead children to consider “maybe” becoming transgender – as if being trans is something one “becomes” rather than something one is.

“I don’t know why children at that age — why this is even an issue, the idea that we are introducing this type of real dangerous confusion for young people at this early age, do we really care about what we’re doing to millions of children who don’t have gender confusion and basically introducing the subject and saying, ‘maybe you should, maybe this is something you should start thinking about at age seven.’ I mean this is really dangerous and it’s going too far because it is having an impact on not just folks who may be in a difficult situation at an early age but many who would never have been in that situation but now are being confronted with it.”

My Favorite Rick Santorum Moment This Year

White House hopeful (oh my sides) Rick Santorum says the Pope should “leave the science to scientists” when it comes to discussing climate change.

Hey Rick – Pope Francis has a Master’s Degree in Chemistry, thus, making him a scientist.

What’s your basis for discussing the subject, Rick?
