Nexis of Nuttiness: LeBoutillier Interviews Trump for Newsmax
Topic: Newsmax

Newsmax's May 23 interview with Donald Trump, in which he revealed "he is seriously considering launching his own super PAC to produce anti-Obama ads showing how Washington is allowing outsiders to 'absolutely suck the blood out of this country,'" was conducted by the one person at Newsmax who could rival Trump for sheer nuttiness: John LeBoutillier.

We've detailed how LeBoutillier -- a Vanderbilt heir and one-term congressman-- was the public face of the failed effort to create a "Counter Clinton Library" to attack President Clinton. As Media Matters notes, LeBoutillier has a long history of extremist political attacks, from making scurrilous, unsupported allegations about Gary Condit's sex life to promoting the so-called "Clinton death list" to writing a self-published birther-y "satirical novel" about Obama (with discredited author Edward Klein).

LeBoutillier began his interview by calling Trump "one of the most famous people on the planet Earth." It doesn't get any better from there.
