Ted Cruz told reporters, who once again asked about the Trumped-up phony eligibility claims, that Trump is disturbed that conservatives are rallying behind him, and that he’s only attacking him because he’s losing in Iowa:
It’s so true that Trump is disturbed. Remember when Ben Carson was leading in Iowa? Trump told Iowans they were stupid for supporting Carson and accused Carson of having some ‘pathological condition’.
When Trump is a desperate man he’ll say anything to win, no matter how ridiculous and dishonest. And his fervent Trumpers will follow right along, not even noticing their own blatant hypocrisy. They’ll passionately defend Trump when he mocks a disabled journalist, but when Trump tells them to question Cruz’s eligibility (even though it is not in question), they go all in.
Honesty is not something that Trump employs when he gets desperate and even though his fervent followers really don’t care, I hope it will be his undoing.
