Donald Trump is increasingly attacking Ted Cruz from an establishment perspective, just like he did in December when he called Cruz a maniac for taking on McConnell and the Republican establishment.
Well here he goes again, today saying Ted Cruz has a ‘rough temperament’ for calling McConnell a liar on the Senate floor and suggesting that’s not the right way to ‘curry favor’ to ‘get the positive votes’:
If The Donald is so interested in currying favor to get the positive votes, then there’s no telling what he will compromise to make that happen. We’ve seen over and over politicians tell us that they will take on the DC establishment and truly represent the people. But then they get to Washington and side with the establishment.
The more I hear Trump criticize Cruz like this, the more I’m convinced he’s going to be one of those politicians. He wants us to believe he’s the ultimate outsider, but I’m worried he’s going to get there and become the ultimate insider just so he can make deals.
And that’s a big problem for me.
