George Will let it fly at Herman Cain and Donald Trump on Sunday, stating that  Republicans and Democrats need to find a way to keep their processes from being “hijacked by  charlatans, entrepreneurs, and entrepreneurial charlatans.” And now the Donald is firing back.

Will’s comment was mainly a swipe at Cain, whom he claims “used this as a book tour, in a fundamentally disrespectful approach to the selection of the presidency.” Will continued on to say that the Republican candidates should stand up and say “we’re not going to be hijacked and participate in this,” referring to the scheduled Newsmax debate moderated by Donald Trump.

Then came the rebuttal.

Early Monday morning on Fox and friends, “the Donald,” as Mr. Trump is known in some quarters, let fly his own harsh predictions and analysis about the presidential race, including that nationally syndicated columnist George Will is “third-rate and makes so many wrong predictions.”

Trump also ripped into the candidacy of Congressman Ron Paul, calling it a “joke” and telling Fox and Friends host Gretchen Carlson that she had “a better chance of winning right now” than  Rep. Paul.
