Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is firing back after conservative New York Times columnist David Brooks called for the GOP to reject Trump.
 
“While I have never met @nytdavidbrooks of the NY Times, I consider him one of the dumbest of all pundits- he has no sense of the real world!” Trump tweeted early Saturday morning.
 
“Reading @nytdavidbrooks of the NY Times is a total waste of time, he is a clown with no awareness of the world around him- dummy!” he added.
 

 
{mosads}Brooks wrote a column Friday morning imploring Republican leaders not to join those who are “selling their integrity for a candidate who will probably lose.”
 
“Donald Trump is epically unprepared to be president,” Brooks wrote. Among his complaints about the billionaire businessman:
 
– “He has no realistic policies, no advisers, no capacity to learn. His vast narcissism makes him a closed fortress.”
 
– He is running for president “with less preparation than most of us would undertake to buy a sofa.”
 
– “Trump is perhaps the most dishonest person to run for high office in our lifetimes. All politicians stretch the truth, but Trump has a steady obliviousness to accuracy.”
 
– “He is a childish man running for a job that requires maturity. He is an insecure boasting little boy whose desires were somehow arrested at age 12.”
 
Brooks concluded that Republicans getting on board with Trump would be a “moral failure.”
