Donald Trump was asked this morning about his use of colorful language last night in New Hampshire. Of course, he tries to hide behind the woman who said it, saying his repeating of it was like a ‘retweet‘, that he would never actually say something like that:

This is Trumpertantrum spin. He did say it.
As I said last night, he chose to highlight what she said for everyone to hear it. He easily could have ignored it, but he didn’t. He had her repeat it for the crowd to hear, and then he repeated it.
It wasn’t like a retweet. It was him calling Cruz a p**sy and he doesn’t want to own up to it now.
Look, what if someone in the audience shouted ‘he’s a n**ger*’ while Trump was talking about Obama. Do you think he’d repeat that for everyone to hear? Do you think the media would let him off the hook for repeating it? He could totally make the same spin argument he made in the interview above, saying he’d never actually say such a word, that it was like a retweet.
I hope someone puts him to the test. Let’s see if he has the balls to ‘retweet’ something like that.
