Only one of these guys is right

Here's a hint: It's not Donald Trump. (Sorry if I spoiled the surprise.)

On Sunday's edition of ABC News "This Week," columnist George Will questioned why Mitt Romney is hosting a fundraising event today with Trump, a notorious birther:
"I do not understand the cost benefit here. The costs are clear. The benefit -- what voter is going to vote for him because he is seen with Donald Trump? The cost of appearing with this bloviating ignoramus is obvious, it seems to me. Donald Trump is redundant evidence that if your net worth is high enough, your IQ can be very low and you can still intrude into American politics."
Typically, this was Trump's retort via Twitter:
"George Will may be the dumbest (and most overrated) political commentator of all time. If the Republicans listen to him, they will lose."
George Will crystallized perfectly Donald Trump's value to the political process. Positively brilliant.
