The Ron Paul campaign sent out an email to reporters with the subject line "Donald Trump to Endorse Harry Reid" blasting Donald Trump's endorsement of Mitt Romney today.

Reality TV star, Donald Trump, who endorsed and contributed money to Harry Reid and Charlie Rangel will travel today to Nevada to endorse a Republican candidate?

Please explain to us why anyone would care.

Please explain to Republican voters in Nevada why they should consider the opinion of a billionaire from New York who endorsed the arch enemy of all Republicans in Nevada, and really the enemy of all Republicans in the US.

Hopefully, media reports of this event will include this delicious irony.

The email marks possibly the first time the Paul camp has found something to agree upon with the Democratic establishment. DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz described the endorsement as "a non-news event" on MSNBC today.

"Donald Trump is such a cartoon character, an endorsement no matter who he chooses is like Bugs Bunny making an endorsement," she said.
