Ted Cruz took a few questions today about the latest Trumpertanrums and points out that Trump is just attacking him to hide his own record and then goes on to point out what The Donald is hiding, that his record is far from conservative.
I think tomorrow night’s debate is going to be very interesting if Ted Cruz takes on The Donald like this, and I fully expect he will.
UPDATE: Here’s more from Politico that MSNBC didn’t catch:
Ted Cruz said he will not respond to Donald Trump’s latest threat to sue him for not being a natural-born citizen.
Trump accused Cruz on Friday of running a nasty campaign after the Texas senator unleashed brutal attacks on Trump’s record on abortion, gay marriage and Obamacare on the campaign trail here. Unless Cruz stops, Trump said, he has “standing to sue” Cruz over being born in Canada.”
There’s more than a little irony in Donald accusing anybody of being nasty given the amazing torrent of insults and obscenities that come out of his mouth on any given day,” Cruz told reporters. “Suddenly every day he comes out with a new attack.”
While Cruz again repeated attacks on Rubio as a liberal traitor, he also explained that he had to pull an ad based on that premise because of an adult actress’s “colorful” history. After hitting Rubio, Cruz then trained all his fire on Trump, as he has done up and down the state this week. Cruz contends he is the only candidate that can beat Trump.
But even as he lit into Trump as liberal on social issues, he declined to directly address the lawsuit threat.
